Hit on at Whole Foods… and a mushroom-y meal

The two things don’t really have much to do with each other, except that they both happened yesterday.

In the afternoon, while on my weekly trip to Whole Foods, a guy hit on me in the bulk aisle… We ended up having like a 20-minute conversation, and then he asked me for my phone number. Why am I telling you this random story? Because it got me thinking: Maybe I should be looking for guys in health-food stores.  Just Kidding!  But seriously, I’d probably have a good chance of finding someone with similar interests to mine! So everyone, go hit up your local health-food store! 😉

Edit: In later blog entries, I refer to the guy as Whole Foods Boy.

Anyways… on to the food.

Something got into my teachers (perhaps the recent cold spell here in Dallas?) because I had no homework last night! With so much extra time on my hands, I decided to be rebellious and NOT invite my friend, Mr. Microwave, to dinner. Instead, I cooked up a wonderful Fall comfort meal: mushroom stroganoff.

As I’v said many times before, I’m not very good at following a recipe to a T. My creative gene gets the better of me, every time. Last night was no different; I ended up using a combination of two different stroganoff recipes, mixed with some of my own panache. The result:

I ate the mushroom stroganoff over a serving of whole-wheat pasta, with some steamed bok choy on the side. It tasted just as amazing as it looks.

    I love that you were hit on at Whole Foods, that’s so awesome! But I mean, who wouldn’t? You are one sexy Chocolate Covered Vegan after all [with or WITHOUT makeup, ;-)].

    So when is your first date? How cool if he was a vegan and the two of you hit it off? wow! (calm down cupid) Mushroom porn rocks. hehe

    The last time I got hit on (at work, closing alone) it was borderline sexual harassment. I’ve been trying to get into Whole Foods bakery… maybe the guy-crop there will be classier.

    Those mushrooms look divine. I don’t get to eat them often enough.

    Maybe you should make 2 trips a week to the bulk aisle….

    i met a guy a few weeks ago in the check out line. he asked for my number but he never called. what an ass! haha

  9. eatingbender says

    Hehehe – you go girl!! Get that man at the health food store, fo sho ;o) That’s a great place to look, indeed!

    I love the mushroom stroganoff! Can you believe that when my mom used to make me stroganoff as a kid, she had to make a special sauce that didn’t have mushrooms in it for me?! The HORROR!! Luckily, I’m more grown up now!

  10. Melissa says

    That looks so good! I can’t wait to see the recipe…we have a bag of mushrooms just waiting for something like this to come along.:)

  11. CeciLiA says

    LOL! Why am I not surprise?!? You’re such a hottie (a smart one at that!) 😀 Sooooo …. did you give him your number *winky wink* I sense a new relationship here!!! Oooolala!!!

  12. Ricki says

    Whole Foods–what a great place to meet a like-minded guy! And I do hope you let us know how it turned out. . . !

    The stroganoff looks great–I would probably want to eat it over pasta, too. 🙂

  13. lighterportions says

    So the health food store is where I need to go to find a decent guy? I’m on it!
    That’s hilarious that you guys ended up talking for 20 minutes. Think he’s a keeper? 😉

    And boy does that mushroom stroganoff ever look good. I love me some mushrooms.
