Today marks three weeks of being a vegetarian! These three weeks have been marked with so many adventures as well as advegtures. I am discovering so much about myself as well as veggie friendly food. Its been a blast, and the advegtures have only just begun!
"An American classic-veggie-style!"

Yesterday, I had my first veggie corn dog, and today I had my first veggie hot dog. I am always shocked by how these meat-imposters taste so much like the real deal. And I thought I would miss meat! Psh! The only times I have caught myself thinking about eating some anti-veg foods have been when I was in zombie-snack mode in front of the refrigerator. We have all done it, admit it. One minute you are watching TV and the next you are blankly staring into the fridge and there is "nothing to eat." I will be stuck in a trance and think, OH! Salami! In an instance I am slamming the palm of my hand into my forehead while I remember my new found veggie-ways.
Today, I reunited with one of my close friends from my first year of college. We decided to meet in Lake Mills, WI. Its about half way in between our two towns, a perfect meeting spot. It is the cutest little lake town I have seen in a while. I arranged for us to meet at Rock Lake Park, assuming it was a beach. It wasn't. Bad research on my part! Instead of searching for an actual beach, we traveled into the adorable little town and looked for a place for lunch. We stumbled on the Water House Bistro. It had a small variety of sandwiches that sounded delicious and two veggie-options. I had the Apple & Cheese as a panini with pickles on the side. As you can probably see, the multi-grain bread was crunchy and made the sandwich delicious and filling. (From previous research I know that multi-grain bread packs in more protein than most other types of bread!) The gooey inside was cheddar and braeburn apple slices. The perfect combination. We asked where the nearest beach was, and were on our way! We then spent they day on a small beach soaking in the sun and enjoying a few refreshing breaks in the crisp and clear water. We chatted with each other, as well as this adorable older couple and a few little kiddies. It was a great day, with great company, in a great new place! I will definitely be returning to Lake Mills!
