The Chef: Jenny
The Menu: Straight from Cuba, today we had traditional Elena Ruth sandwiches. In case you haven't been to the island recently, an Elena Ruth is composed of faux turkey, vegan cream cheese, and strawberry jam. Okay, to be totally traditional this would have been served on fresh-baked Cuban bread, but we had to make do with what Trader Joe's had to offer. In addition to the awesome kick off to our second-ever theme week's main course, we enjoyed a simple spring-mix salad, shoestring fries, and soy strawberry shakes. Yes, Jenny spoils us.
The Goods: In addition to getting sandwich week off to an auspicious start, we have a little announcement. Today marks the 100th post on Café VegNews! Remember all the way back to last October's Inaugural Post? And who could forget the Pre-Thanksgiving Potluck? There have been too many fond memories to link to all of them (in fact, you could just go back and read all the entries—there's not a stinker in the bunch!), but we hope you've enjoyed reading our daily posts as much as we've enjoyed eating the amazing lunches.
