I hope your weekend was as lovely as mine! Yesterday I ate brunch at Veggie Grill – ordered my favorite, the All Hail Kale

Traded bites with Abe for my second favorite dish, the Sante Fe Crispy Chickin’ sandwich

We met a friend to see the new Errol Morris documentary, Tabloid

I didn’t know anything about Joyce McKinney before seeing this, but what a CRAZY story (or bunch of stories, I should say)! If you like This American Life, you will LOVE this movie. It’s bananas!

We hung out with Julius for a few hours before checking out the Los Feliz Village Street Fair

There was live music, a guy with a cat on his shoulder….

…and lots of food!!!

But I just wasn’t feeling any of it; not even in the mood for this pizza place I’ve been wanting to try:

Just wanted to make something at home. Earth Balance sent some free coupons to try their vegan products, and I picked up a jar of Mindful Mayo.

I saw somewhere (probably Paula Deen) that you can substitute mayonnaise for butter on grilled cheese sandwiches. Certainly spreads easier!

On the other side of the Silver Hills bread slices – Jarlsberg Lite + Dried Fig Compote

A little handful of baby spinach in the middle

Grill both sides until brown (2-3 minutes on high)

I took the sandwich made from the loaf heels, but photographed Abe’s, which was prettier

For dessert, we shared the Embrace Sweets cookie…

…with the watermelon chunks that never got made into cheeseburgers

Oatmeal cranberry with big chunks of walnut – so yummy dipped into hot cocoa!

    I think the guy with the cat on his shoulder is Fantastic Fig & Newton from America’s Got Talent!

    And yet again, you remind me of a documentary I was hoping to see! Actually, to be honest, I was on the fence about this one, but since you liked it, I might have to go for it.

    Earth Balance makes vegan mayo now? I missed this memo! How is it?

      i didn’t actually eat it “raw” yet but it seems to be very similar to vegenaise?

    mmmm! Can’t wait to go to Germany and try that sandwich on Bauernbrot (only some of the best bread in the world)! Keep up the great sandwich creations, it’s so inspiring. Otherwise I’m just boring and make a plain old stinky cheese (no, really, the smelly one is so yummy) or penaut butter and honey/jam sandwich… :P

    Hey, I’m a new reader. I had to comment on this post because my dad always made my grilled cheese sandwiches with mayo instead of butter when I was a kid. I was maybe a teenager before I discovered that that wasn’t typical. I still prefer them that way.
