Yesterday was valentines day... I have sort a fucked up view of it. I don't want flowers or candy or anything like that. If someone want's to buy me flowers, do it on a random day in march or april when the weather here in portland is so grey and miserable that flowers are the cure for the gloom. I think is should be about spending time with the people who you care about. So that is what i did.
I spent the afternoon walking up and down the lovely street i live on with two of my girlfriends. We went to the little cafe in the building I almost lived in and where there is this lovely waiter who happens to be super cute to boot.
Leigh, and the cute waiter in the background
After that we walked up and down my street... where we stopped in a little shop called Flutter
Where these pretty birds live with this...
pretty fluffy kitty!
So after i left my friends I came home and started working on dinner. I am a chicagoian, I love goose island beer, and the cubs. I know where/what the crotch is and that you don't put Ketchup on hot dogs (even if I do). I also am a pizza snob, I know that the best pizza in the whole world you eat with a knife and a fork. the boy that was my valentine dinner guest... is a west coaster who's never set foot near a chicago deep dish pizzeria. He and I are also vegan. SO... Vegan Deep Dish pizza was in order!
I wish i would have gotten a picture when it came out of the oven. Seriously I wasn't quite sure that it had cooked all the way thru. but it had... I guess the fact that was all that was left is a good thing... I think SOMEONE had way more then I did. I can't blame him Deep Dish is deeply addictive and yummy! Thank heavens for Teese (a chicago based fake cheese) and Daiya (another kind of fake cheese) They seriously have made being vegan easier. For dessert I made
Cherry berry pie... it was SUPER soupy... I don't know why I took out a lot of sugar, and added flower... Next time I may use a slotted spoon to keep all of the juice out.
After dinner we hung out at my house and watched Welcome to Macintosh. YEP, we are both that nerdy.... It was perfectly lovely day.
How did you spend your Valentines day?
