Soups & Salads
— Labor-Inducing Vegetarian Chili —
Not recommended late in the 3rd trimester. Served with sour cream. Contains no meat, unlike the vegetarian chili that you find in the suburbs.
— Cream o’ Tomato —
Remember walking with your partner to the primary school lunchroom then going single file through the cafeteria line and the smell of the grilled cheese and the nice older ladies in the hair nets filling melamine bowls on the trays with the little round indentation to keep the bowl from slipping that would be steaming with the hot creamy tomato soup that by all means you should hate because it has tomatoes in it and you’re supposed to still hate tomatoes and you secretly love but won’t admit? Yeah. This is like that, only better.

— Alexander the Greek Salad —
One banged-up economy, but a great salad! Now lettuce-free, with quinoa, feta, and Greek olives, tossed with lemon-herb vinaigrette.
