The Chef: Elizabeth
The Menu: Cheese, and lots of it. Of course, it's non-dairy Daiya, which you may have read about once or twice on this blog before. Today's main dish had five ingredients: cheese, pasta, marinara sauce, extra garlic, and garlicky bread crumbs. Yes, those are listed in order of greatest volume. Salad? Well, we had one, but no one really cared. It might be a fact that we now just make salad in an effort to give the appearance that we eat something other than big piles of Daiya.
The Goods: Elizabeth (mistakenly) thought she had a shot at finishing off our supply of Daiya with today's ultra-cheesy baked ziti. In fact, she made a good dent, but we're not out yet. Did Ms. Laura Beck join us for lunch? Yes. Do we all have highly professional, totally appropriate, huge freaking crushes on her? Yes, yes we do. We also have a few more Go Vegan! 2010 Calendars! Congrats to Kelly G. from the hefty crop of responses yesterday! Kelly, send us an email, and we'll send your calendar right out. Now, for today's prize, leave us a comment with your favorite thing about Laura. OK, OK, since that's not entirely fair, tell us: how would you make a salad that could hold its own next to the fabulousness of super-cheesy baked ziti?
