On the night of day 12, we had plans to have happy hour at Seattle’s Plum Bistro, a vegan restaurant known for its unpretentious comfort food, and I was dying to be inspired by the visit. Let me tell ya, Plum Bistro did not disappoint. My hubs and I both ordered their Spicy Cajun Mac and Yease, and—I have to be honest here—even though it was vegan, it was better than any mac and cheese I’d ever had in the entire 40 years I’ve been alive. It wasn’t gooey, but had nice chunks of creamy goodness, and a wonderful mouth feel. It was rich and tasty, and the spice was warming, but not hot. The happy hour portion was small, but that was a good thing, even just a small bowl was deeply satisfying. Especially when eaten alongside a side dish, which we did, as we shared the Rosemary Garlic Russet Fries, which were also heavenly.
