Happy National Blueberry Cheesecake Day! We have for our random meal of the day treat a mouthwatering Blueberry Sour Cream Cheesecake. The delicate balance between sweet and tart is perfectly maintained in this round personal sized cheesecake. Normally I like to share my dessert treats but this one barely even made the photo. Yummy!
On another note, Random Meal of the Day is partially back from vacation and will be featuring only desserts on random days!

I want to say thank you for each and every visitor that has visited Random Meal Of The Day. It has been a great time but I feel that it is time for me to take a vacation from Random Meal. There is an exciting adventure that I will be focusing on now. It has been a pleasure and I hope to see you revisit Random Meal Of The Day again in the next couple of months.

We have some famous Mojo Potatoes and Fried Chicken for our random meal. This random meal just brings back memories of childhood fundraisers. I remember countless fundraisers at Shakey's Pizza. It is still as good now as how I remembered it in the past.

We have an Egg Rolls appetizer for our random meal today. These Vietnamese egg rolls are typically use an egg flour wrap and are deep fried. This egg roll instead uniquely uses paper as the outer shell. This live action shot shows how you could typically eat the egg roll, wrapped in lettuce.

We have a Asian Fusion style Mango Salad for our random meal today. This colorful salad contains "grilled shrimp, ground chicken, shredded green mango, cashew nut, coconut flakes, cilantro, onion with a lime dressing." The tangy salad focuses on the shredded mango and mounds of chicken for a unique random meal. This is a departure from the typical green leafy salad with bold colors and bold flavors.

Our random meal of the day brings us an order of what seems like a wildly random sandwich. We have the Curried Chicken, Grape, Apple & Pecan Sandwich on grilled buckwheat bread. For a sandwich that just sounds so random, it actually was surprising full of wonderful flavor. The curried chicken mixed with grapes and pecans gave the sandwich a nice subtle kick while the sliced apple base paired perfectly with the sandwich and made it feel extremely refreshing.
