Lovely Leftovers

The Chef: Colleen

The Menu: Some of the items today may look a little familiar. You know how we like to use everything that we can here at VN, so leftovers are always fair game when making lunch. Today we got to relive the splendor that was Jenny's rice and curry combo from yesterday, and indulge in a little something new. Ms. Colleen got to show off her amazing appetizer ability with some excellent sautéed shiitake mushrooms, spinach, and beet greens over crostini. Each one was a savory treat and a perfect balance to the sweetness of the peanut butter in the curry. Of course, the salad was splendid with just a fresh mix of greens, tomatoes, and sliced bell peppers in a balsamic vinaigrette. It seems the word we are looking for here is, "yum."

The Goods: It's Friday. We got to enjoy an awesome lunch in the sun, even though it's December tomorrow. Sure, the wind was a little chilly, but, you know, who's counting? We hope everyone gets to enjoy the weekend and eat something delicious!

How does one learn how to prepare such lovely meals? I am new to this life style and love the magazine. Can I find some of the recipes and menus in the up coming issues of VegNews magazine?
