We have been on vacation since the 18th, enjoying a sunny road trip to California, enjoying wine in Sonoma, enjoying teaching Jason all about Instagram as I drove, enjoying pumping our own gas in another state.
We are back home, the super fun shiny red rental car is turned in. So happy to be back home, happy to pick Basil up from his vacation, happy to get back into a sortof routine.
On our way home, we stopped for lunch in Eugene, where I knew we could find a fresh juice and some plant based happiness. We went to the Morning Glory Café and were not disappointed.
We shared a huge carrot orange juice.
I chose the most awesome thing on the breakfast menu:
Happy Morning Sandwich - a fresh biscuit, split, toasted and topped with a soysage patty, spinach, tomato slices, “glorious” tofu patty, and tofu sour cream. Served with herbed glory potatoes covered with our tantric mushroom gravy and green onions.
This was very good – the biscuit was very flavorful (cannot pinpoint the flavor but as soon as I do…), the tofu sour cream was herby delicious, the tomatoes fresh and bright. Those potatoes were perfect, and that gravy, oh yum.
…and Happy Morning? I need to start naming my sandwiches cool things like this.
Cajun Tempeh Sandwich - Organic tempeh patty grilled in cajun spices, topped with grilled onions and served on toasted whole wheat bread with our jalapeno aoli, lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, and shredded carrots.
Jason’s sandwich was also tasty – he watched me after I took a bite, because the heat kinda sneaks up on you.
I will keep the Morning Glory Café in mind for future trips to or through Eugene – great food, casual clean and open atmosphere, friendly staff.
A great end to our vacation!
