Happy Vegasgiving

When in Vegas, do as the Vegans. So when I was there for Thanksgiving 2008, I ate at a buffet: The Monte Carlo Hotel and Casino buffet. They had the cheapest one in our neck of the strip, so that's where I plunked my money down and publicly binged.

Plate #1: turkey slice, 3 gnocchi, couscous spoon-dump, tuna steak, broccholini, two yam cubes

Plate #2: green beans, melon, mushrooms, again with the tuna steak, tilapia, stuffing, breaded shrimp, yellow raisins, asparagus, red pepper, 1/8th of a steak

Pumpkin cheesecake and coffee for desert

The gnocchi and the mushrooms look yummy- I marvel at your small portions. I would have covered every inch of the plate with food.

Here's the thing. It was a lot of food. I chose to do small portions so that I would not fill up on one thing and thus be able to try everything. And by the end of all that "tasting," I was stuffed. So I had 2 slices of pie.
