Saturday hijinks

Weekends are kind of strange at the present, with Steve (rootbeer1) working Saturdays and Sundays, from 4:30AM to 1:00PM. By the time he gets home from work, we have not a whole lot of time before he has to go to bed (at 7:30PM or so). We're trying to get out and do stuff more rather than retiring to our respective studies and banging on the computers. We can do that when each other is sleeping.

Today we met Peter (peterinoakland) and Tim (timmmmbar) at the Oakland Club One to work out. After the gym, we went to this vegan soul food place right across the street from our favorite Buttercup in Oakland. The place is called Souley Vegan, and damn if it's not some of the best soul food I've ever had, and totally vegan. Here's the Yelp review. Everything was delicious, but the mac and cheese was utterly amazing.



Steve's now asleep, I'm banging on the computer and watching Cops. Later I will retire to bed and continue reading Little Men on my iPhone.

The server told us the "cheese" sauce was made with nutritional yeast. I found several recipes on the internets that I'm going to try. But this one sure tasted like cheese.

We also had fried "chicken" (tofu), barbecued fried tofu cubes, collard greens, cornbread, black-eyed peas, yams, and fried okra. It was all great. They have other things on the menu that I want to try.

Oh yeah...but read all three --Little Women, Little Men and Jo's Boys. They cover around a 25 year period. The story generally revolves around Jo, who is based on Louisa herself, from a girl of 16 to a 40-ish woman, her three sisters and their friends, family and lovers. They can be a bit moralistic at times, but I love her style, and it always seems surprisingly comtemporary, seeing she wrote them in the 1860s-1880s.
