4 years, 2 months.
Last Friday after work, I drove straight to Mellow Mushroom in downtown Franklin; which is only about 20 minutes from our new house.
Grandma wanted to take our family out to dinner to help celebrate us moving in our new home.
I suggested Mellow Mushroom, already familiar with the idea that it was “vegan friendly,” though we hadn’t eaten there since I became a vegan nearly 2 years ago.
Turns out, it was one of the best meals I’ve had eating out at in a long time. I was pleasantly delighted to be there; and so were you!
You enjoyed getting to see “the Mushroom Man,” who was made completely out of spare car parts.
I liked their kids’ menu. You ordered a cheese pizza with a side order of steamed broccoli… which you ate all of.
As for me, I had a delectable vegan pizza which came with vegan cheese, tofu, and plenty of veggies.
Plus, I’ve never been to a Mellow Mushroom when the service wasn’t perfect. The staff is always so helpful, yet laid back.
I almost forgot… Mellow Mushroom is where Mommy and I went to dinner the night I proposed to her!
Back in January 2008, I had planned to propose at Saffire restaurant at the Franklin Factory, where we had first met. However, the day of, I found out that restaurant was closed on Monday’s.
So we had dinner at that same Mellow Mushroom there in downtown Franklin, then we drove to the Franklin Factory, where Mommy said yes when I proposed.
While we’re obviously not new to Mellow Mushroom, now that we are a plant-based family I feel that we have now discovered our official go-to eat-out restaurant closest to our new home.
Obviously, you know we don’t go out often, but when we do on special occasions, I’d be fine with going to Mellow Mushroom every time. We’re actually going back this Saturday night for a fun, family Valentine’s dinner!
