Technically, I am on vacation. My mother, who lives with my husband and me, is on a trip back to her home-town in eastern Canada. My husband is on holidays and today is our wedding anniversary. Nonetheless, I want to share a little post with you.
On Father’s Day, we went to connect with my husband’s family in the town where my sister-in-law resides. I had done some research to see if I could find a place where at least some vegan food might be available. I came up with a restaurant called, The Brewery Bay Company. They actually had chicken-substitutes on their menu, so I figured that would work well for all of us.
When we got to the restaurant, I was struggling to read the menu because I didn’t bring the right glasses. I should have had my bi-focals on, but I had erred in favour of my prettier frames which were only for distance. Dumb move. I finally managed to read the menu by putting it right up to my face. You know how you like to peruse a menu at length and see what your choices are and then make a selection? That’s hard to do when you can only see one thing at a time, so when it came time to order, I kind of flew by the seat of my pants.
I ordered a build your own pizza. The waitress said they could use the substitute chicken on the pizza, so I went for it. My husband got the veggie burger (bo-ring!) and this is what I rattled off to the waitress:
One thing is for certain, they’ve never seen that combination before, and likely, they never will again!
Oh, and the “crust” issue? I have no idea what was in it. I just hope against hope that it was vegan.
