Imagining a Menu

While sitting in the back seat of a minivan for a ten hour drive, I daydreamed up a menu.  It's incredibly dorky but I feel no need to justify the dorkiness- that's just how it is.  If I had a restaurant, this is how it would be and this is what I would serve.  Some of the dishes on the menu are already on this blog, if you'd rather make it yourself than come to my fictional cafe.


Good Morning Cafe or Honey Bear Cafe
-Entirely vegetarian, mostly plant-based
-What animal products we use would be from humane, small, local farms
-Produce local, organic, and fresh as much as possible
-Good music + positive outlook
-Walls will be filled with my friends' art
-Lots of windows everywhere
-House nut butter, different flavors based on batch.  Same with granola.

MENU

Are you like, "Yeah, right, Heather.  I can make my own toast"?  Or are you gonna head over to my fictional restaurant?  This post is weird.

World peace and love,

Heather <3
