Circle Time: The Show and Tell Weekly Thread

Welcome back to Show and Tell. Everyone is welcome to join, even if you have never posted before and just found out about Show and Tell for the first time today. In fact, we hope you do go back to your blog and post your own Show and Tell item and then return with the link to your post. Details on how to participate are located at the bottom of this post.

Let's begin.

So I said I wasn't going to post until tomorrow but then I was listening to Dooce and her foray into vegetarianism and it made me want to talk about this. We have had so much trouble eating in San Francisco. Isn't that bizarre? The section of town we are staying in has a dearth of vegetarian options. The place we went to last night had literally one vegetarian thing on the menu. I know there are these great places in the city, but we missed them. And that makes me so sad. And I guess that is how the San Francisco bloggers are going to get me to drag my ass out here again. The best meal we ate in terms of choice came from the amazing food court near the Powell Street BART stop. Mmmm...grilled asparagus.

If you are seeking inspiration and want to join Show and Tell this week, tell me about your best meal this week.

What are you showing today?

Want to bring something to Show and Tell?
  • If you would like to join circle time and show something to the class, simply post each Sunday (or earlier in the weekend or on Monday if you can't do Sunday), hopefully including a picture if possible, and telling us about your item. It can be anything--a photo from a trip, a picture of the dress you bought this week, a random image from an old yearbook showing a person you miss. It doesn't need to contain a picture if you can't get a picture--you can simply tell a story about a single item.
  • Label your post "Show and Tell" each week and then come back here and add the permalink in the comments section below (make sure you don't just comment that you participated: add a link to your blog in your comment so people can click over). I post a new Show and Tell post every Saturday night or Sunday. I usually move people up into the body of the post every few hours.
  • Oh, and then the point is that you click through all of your classmates and see what they are showing this week.
  • If you want it...
    I've now placed a Show and Tell archive on the sidebar that will be updated each week in case you miss it. And click here for the icon code if you wish to have it for your blog. It links to the archives.

I've been shocked by the lack of good vegetarian choices in Charleston, SC. I know there are some restaurants somewhere, but only one I've found so far. I'm still used to Asheville, NC, I guess. I'm not vegetarian myself, but my BFF is and I'm always looking for good places to take her when she visits. So far none of the Chinese buffets I've been to have even one vegetarian option.

Here's my Show and Tell for the week:

It's too bad you didn't have more time to explore the city ... I'm SURE there are excellent veggie places out there! Those asparagus look fantastic - hope you enjoyed them.

Here's my post for this week. It mentions you by the way. ;)

Jess said...

That does look YUM and I'm no vegetarian!

Phoebe said...

If you are a "flexitarian", some of the best seafood I've had was in San Francisco. I think I've had vegetarian in the Little Eataly section of the city too. What about Chinatown? Where the heck are you anyways?

I don't have pictures of my awesome homegrown pesto dinner I made tonight, but let me show you pictures of my (furry) children:

Here in Cairo i'd think it be good to be a vegetraian. I'm not one, but had a friend who was and she said it was hard. I don't agree with her though as we have loads of yummy hommos, falafel, eggplant, wheat, tahina salads, anyway that was her comment. Come to Cairo Lolli, I'll hook ya up!

Here's my Show and Tell today.

My first Show and Tell since I was in pre-school.

As a vegetarian for almost 20 years, I will say that I have been very surprised about which cities offer good and bad vegetarian choices. Aside from the fabulous veg restaurants that some cities offer, the true test is what choices are offered at the average restaurant. I agree that SF is not as veg-friendly as I would have expected, given the politics. I think Seattle may be the best I've found in the U.S. so far, but internationally London is the big winner -- which was a huge shock to me.

I was a vegetarian for 10 years, and most of that time I lived in the midwest. So I can really empathize with not being able to find restaurants with vegetarian options! I was always more likely to find waiters who wanted to argue that bean and bacon soup was veggie because, "(Eye roll) bacon is SO not meat."
