Sunday Morning Coming Down

One of my favorite ways to spend a lazy Sunday morning is at McFoster's, enjoying brunch. Though I usually opt for the tempeh, lettuce and tomato sandwich, with a garden salad with cucumber garlic ranch as my side, this particular brunch had me ordering a plain tofu scramble with hash browns. Yes, I fancied it up with a bit of the aforementioned ranch and a few splashes of hot sauce, but it was a perfect start to a lovely Sunday.

For dessert, my mom and I shared the Celestial Bananas. Yes, I am aware the name is kind of awkward, but so is describing it: a sautéed banana, lined with fresh sliced strawberries and topped off with three slices of tofu mousse. It sounds like it skews a little too much towards health food, but it delicious. The banana is cooked perfectly to bring out the natural sweetness and the tofu mousse lacks any soy aftertaste, while the strawberries are just delicious on their own. The flavors shown are chocolate and lemon, but it varies from day to day.


  1. I know this might be weird because I don't know you, and looks like your blog is mostly only friends / family, but I found it when I was looking up The Daily Grub on google. I'm sort of new to this whole blogging thing, but get am getting a kick of it so far and it's always fun to read about things nearby (I live in downtown Omaha). Just thought I'd let you know I was reading and was enjoying your posts. Here's a link to my blog if you're interested. Any other Omaha bloggers you'd recommend?

  2. Those hash browns look divine! Good choice!

  3. I miss that ranch pretty hard.

  4. Amanda- I love the Eat Pure blog- it's focused on traveling and food, and has a ton of pretty pictures.

    Everyone else- Team hash browns and ranch for the win!
