Totally Mod

October 29, 2010

I’ve discovered my now empty Ball jar is perfect for oatmeal parfaits!

Layers from the bottom up:

  • Whipped banana oats + flax
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Whipped banana oats + flax
  • Orange cranberry granola
  • Whipped banana oats + flax
  • Justin’s Chocolate Hazlenut Buttah

Yes, you could say my Friday was off to a good start.  And it only got better form here.

Joey politely asked if I could pick up some work related papers for him on Thursday between class and work, since I was you know, already in Boulder. 

My reply?  But I’m hungry and my knee hurts and, well, I just don’t want to.

Don’t you wish I was your girlfriend?  Anyways Joey ended up dropping into Boulder today to pick them up for himself and how convenient that I should have a lunch break up for grabs.  But where to?

Mod Market, of course.

Beanie and I have been wanting to go to this place ever since we sampled their delicious salads at the Farmers’ Market so this was the perfect opportunity.

Their food philosophy definitely matches up with mine.  Real food, in season, no preservatives, vegan & vegetarian options.  YES.PLEASE.

The three of us were quite surprised to see the giant line once we got inside.  Apparently our fellow Boulderites know good food.  Despite the line our food was out really quickly.

I started with a cup of the vegan Cashew Butternut Squash soup. 

It was everything a butternut soup should be.  Creamy, thick and exploding with flavor.

Followed up with the half order of vegan Garden Pizza.  It came with sauce, red peppers, broccoli and a vegan cheese.

I don’t know what that “cheese” was but I do know this pizza was 100% delicious.  Who says vegan can’t be fun?

Speaking of mod, the restaurant itself was just that.

Yes that is a row of grass on the wall.  Oh, and Beanie’s Green Chicken Chili Soup.

Speaking of soup I totally forgot to mention the awesome Nutty Vanilla Sweet Potato + Kale soup Joey made the other night.  Compliments of Kath, of course.

I re-heated on Thursday night when I finally got home at 8 PM (by the way, it turns out the highway was closed due to a pedestrian death!!).

Okay so I ended up adding A LOT of veggie broth to this soup!  It was so thick it just looked like mashed up sweet potato and mixed in kale. 

The flavor, however, was SPOT ON.

I just went on a windy, but otherwise lovely 3.8 mile run (because I had to make my weekly mileage add up) and now I’m off to dinner for a friend’s birthday and then a Halloween party that I have NO costume for…

Happy Friday, again?  I just realized I already posted today… Hope you don’t mind!

    I don’t mind the double posting – in fact, I like it.

    You are lucky that Joey cooks. For real.

    How did the pedestrian die?? Did they get hit.. that’s so random.

    I want a place like Mod Cloth to open up here! The food sounds great and I love the grass on the wall. Too cool. 🙂

    Mod Market is delicious! I went there for the first time this past weekend and fell in love with their “Winter Harvest” (or something like that) salad. SOOOOO delicious. Can’t wait to try out some of their other dishes!

    I have a ton of Bell jars that I didn’t know what to do with, but didn’t want to toss them out…perfection!!! I can’t wait to try these oats in a Bell jar 🙂 I would love a place like that to eat, the closest thing we have is the hot/salad bar at Whole Foods.
