Today I decided to go with dinner and a movie. Technically, it was lunch and a movie. I'm a huge fan of Back to the Future. This year is the 25th anniversary so I've heard a lot about it recently. I decided to bust out my trilogy and watch the first two. The third is my least favorite. Just not interested when a franchise decides to go to the old west.
The menu today was based on diner food. I went with burgers and fries, but tried to do the "futuristic" twist. And because I'm trying to eat better after Thanksgiving, I decided against a milkshake like I originally wanted. Onto the good stuff. Welcome to Doc Brown's DeLorean Cafe!

Biff's Beefy Bacon Burgers
Sweet-On-Your-Son Sweet Potato Fries
Sugar Free Cup of Faux Joe
The burger patty is the Beefy Bacon Burger from 500 Vegan Recipes. I also made hamburger buns, but they looked so horrible I actually made another burger on sourdough just to photograph. Haha. I still have not mastered making homemade buns. The fixins on the burger: cheddar Daiya, mustard, pickles, tomato, and red leaf lettuce. Served on sourdough.
The fries are sweet potato oven fries. I seasoned them with Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning and baked at 375 for 20ish minutes.
The "cup of joe" is black English breakfast. I'm not the hugest fan of coffee, and tea takes way less time to make.
This was a perfect meal to laugh at how the 80s perceived the 2000s. They did get the whole 80s nostalgia thing right, though. But I'm still waiting on a flying car. Or at least a damn hoverboard. I mean, c'mon! McFly had sneaks that laced themselves and that movie came out over 20 years ago!
