Butternut and Brussel Sprout Hash

Our first weekend together in Atlanta was crazy fun. Mostly because we were together. Cheesy, I know...but, we didn't do anything grand except the daily routine stuff (yoga, cook, run/walk, hike) that means so much more with the person you love.

I didn't, but my inner singer/dancer was 'a shining and I couldn't get the song out of my head. Did I burst out in song the rest of the night? Why, yes, naturally.

So, onward to the food....can I tell you how stinking excited I was so see so many veg friendly options at a pub?! Heaven. Like so many delicious sounding options that I changed my mind twice. Maybe 3 times. Settled on a seitan gyro with a butternut and brussel sprout hash. Heaven yet again.
