WIAW~The Veggie Burger Tour of Califorinia

Hello!  Whether I’m home, on vacation or on a road trip, I do my best Not to miss What I Ate Wednesday!  It’s a fun food trip and the brain child of Jenn over at Peas & Crayons.  Be sure to visit P & C when you’re finished here to read up on all the great food for the week and Leave Some Comments!

Peas and Crayons

You’d expect that getting vegetarian offerings would be easy in California.  For the most part it has!

A delicious sandwich that my cousin Kim made for us.  Portobello mushroom sandwich with Havarti cheese, tomato, spinach and red onion.  It’s supposed to be served on a pretzel roll, but she couldn’t find any.  It’s called a Rose of Sharon sandwich.  Even Ralph liked it and suggested we make them at home.  The side was couscous with veggies…Tasty!

A veggie burger I had at a charming general store in Markleeville, Ca.  It was delicious and huge served with barbecue sauce and home-made macaroni salad.  I’ll be doing a recap of some of th restaurants later in the week and let you know where I was.

The bad thing is that it was accompanied by this…

Perhaps the world’s largest vanilla milk shake (Ralph’s idea…Honest!)

When we reached Lone Pine, Ca.  I wasn’t sure what would be available, this being cattle country.  But…

At a great little restaurant called the Totem where we’ve eaten before, I found a veggie burger on the menu.  I was excited!  These were some of the best french fries I’ve had in a long time and yes… I did eat them.  I’ll get back on track soon.

As I mentioned, I’ll be doing a real recap of some of the places we ate.  In fact, I think I’ll probably be adding another veggie burger to my list.  Where we plan to eat dinner tonight is known for their burgers and yes…veggie burgers are among them!

So that’s the tour and that’s What I Ate Wednesday for this week.  Be sure to check out some of the other participating blogs and see what all the excitement is about.

By the time you read this, we should be on our way back to New Mexico.  I’m pretty excited!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday…The Great Veggie Burger Tour!

  1. hope you have smooth sailing all the way back to nm, fran!
    so glad you were able to find veggie burgers to enjoy! actually, wouldn’t that be a funny idea, to pick a food (veggie burger, omelet, whatever) order that same item in various states and cities during an entire trip away from home…and yes, those fries look great!

    • Cathy, that’s a great idea and in a way that’s what I seemed to be doing. I’ve been lucky on this trip that more places are offering veggie burgers…even Burger King. Safely back in NM, now for some relaxation!

  2. Glad you are finding veg options where ever you go! I’d be shocked if you went anywhere where there wasn’t that option. And I say splurge on vacation! Vanilla milkshakes are not “bad!”

  3. Yum yum, veggie burgers! I’ll probably be having a few Cali veg burgers of my own when I’m in San Fran a week from now!

  4. I would love to do a veggie burger tour! I’m glad you got to enjoy all these foods (and those french fries look great…I can see why you ate them!)
