One hundred and seventy-seven words…

I was sure she was barking up the wrong tree. I couldn’t see the point of it. I told her so. But would she listen? Would she heck.

She was a good cook, I’d go as far as to say she was up there with the best chefs. She had an eye for interior design. She could sell too, her Ann Summers’ parties were legendary! But her latest idea just didn’t do it for me.

Okay, so starting her own trendy restaurant seemed feasible. But there? With that menu? With that name? What on earth was she thinking!

That was several years ago and yes, I admit it. I was wrong. People descend in droves on her remote little eaterie. They love her peppers stuffed with quinoa, toasted pine nuts, dry-fried tofu, and kale followed by coconut ice cream and protein pancakes. She’s thinking of branching out. She’s planning a chain of Veganastic Diners.

Me? I’ve thought of turning over a new leaf – even eating some! Have been for ages. I may. One day. We’ll see.

    She definitely has good business sense. I have a vegetarian friend who has a really hard time finding suitable food in Andalucia! I dread to think what will happen if he goes vegan. Perhaps she should open a restaurant over here!

      Vegan food is growing in popularity at an alarming rate in the UK – I’ll pass on your suggestion!!

    I’m not one for odd sounding food dishes, either. So…this would not be a place to appeal to me. I wonder if people who eat stuff like this really enjoy it or are just doing it because it’s trendy. 🙂

      My daughter and her husband are vegans, so as a regular dinner host I’ve had to come up with lots of recipes, and I can honestly say, there are some really tasty ones out there! I’m yet to be converted myself though!
