The Chef: Abby
The Menu: Yes, you read the title right. We had fried green tomatoes. Were the tomatoes grown in Abby's mother's garden and mailed directly to her so that she could create this authentic, Midwest specialty? Yes, yes they were. Yes, we are spoiled. We also enjoyed freshly baked biscuits—one of Abby's signature dishes—a spruced-up version of yesterday's macaroni salad, sausage-ish breakfast patties from Sunshine Burgers, and, of course, a huge green salad.
The Goods: We not only ate a ton of fantastic things, we got to chat with some fantastic people today, too! Brendan Brazier, one of our 25 Most Fascinating Vegetarians, and his lovely lady Julie brought us some excellent conversation about the marathon they both ran over the weekend, life in LA, and other exciting tidbits. Speaking of exciting, you know that there are only four days left to vote in the 2009 Veggie Awards Survey, right? Eeeeek!
