Reubens, Legumes, & Spaghetti (AGAIN!)

Last Sunday, Backlot Sandwich Shop offered their Vegan Reuben on special again. I've blogged about this sandwich before, but it's just SO GOOD. Chef Kyle makes the "corned beef" with roasted and smoked celeriac root, and it's also got a homemade red kraut and vegan cheese. This is by far the best sandwich in Memphis. Kyle says they'll be offering it most Sundays now! They're also offering the Roasted Brussels Sprouts side without bacon now (yay!).

I'm all about that legume life! Here's a recent soup of Lentil Soup made with potatoes, spinach, and carrots. Paul requested lentils for dinner, and he likes potatoes in his lentil soup. So that's what we did. It was good, and we have so much leftover!

One day last week, I needed a quick desk lunch, so I brought some TastyBite Bombay Potatoes (with chickpeas) and TastyBite Jasmine Rice — both in microwavable packages. I added a little hing for extra flair!

And here's another plate of Spaghetti & Mushrooms (my standard Friday night dinner) — perfect carb-loading for last Saturday's 22-mile training run. I'm training for another 50K on Oct. 23! We didn't have any fresh mushrooms, but I always keep some canned mushrooms on-hand. And I had some frozen broccoli and cauliflower on the side. This was right before grocery day, so frozen and canned had to do!

All your food looks delicious - and that Reuben is just drool worthy. Good luck with your last few weeks of training.

I would travel to Memphis just to eat that sandwich with you!
