My dad dropped by and we went to the Lunch Room food cart… for lunch. It’s already one of my favorite places to go for food in Ann Arbor and today was no exception! I had the Aloo Yoop Fall Harvest Stew (coconut milk curry stew with yukon gold and sweet potatoes, chick peas, yellow onions, peas, and brown rice), which was just lovely to have outside with a little chill in the air. It has just the right amount of curry spice for me.
It’s a bit overcast today, so the warm saffron color isn’t as apparent as it was in person. My dad had the Washington Street Wrap (a hummus wrap with roasted red pepper, cucumber, baby lettuce, tomato & red onion). He had never had hummus before, nor limeade, which was the drink he chose.
I went for their Boston cooler. I just love the flavor combination of ginger ale with coconut ice cream.
Dad asked if there was anything else to do while we were downtown, so we were off to the farmers’ market in Kerrytown. He got some bread; I got kale, chard, beets, and a monster butternut squash. We joked about buckling it into the back of his car as we were packing up…
Couldn’t resist. I weighed it when I got home. It’s 9 pounds, 7¾ ounces.
