Date Night Ahoy!

Happy Saturday! Rob took Tally up the mountain this morning. I'm looking forward to the day I can join them again, I do miss trail walking with my family but my knee just isn't strong enough to walk on rocky or uneven terrain. I made the best of a quiet morning, I put on some music and caught up on my magazine reading.  (Entertainment Weekly, Time, This Old House.)

Bucha and broth started the morning then I had breakfast at around 9am.


A Georgia peach parfait, layers of diced peaches, Greek yogurt and walnuts.  So pretty and so tasty!

Had my morning cappu, too.  If you want a delicious, inexpensive and easy coffee drink at home, invest in a $20 Bialetti Moka Express and a $2 frother (the cost of a five venti cappuccinos at Starbucks.) 

We had lunch around just before 1pm.  Behold, the fast food burger salad!  A bed of cold, crisp greens, Bubbie's traditionally fermented dill pickles, sliced green onions, chopped tomatoes, a grilled grassfed beef patty topped with some shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese and "special sauce," of course.  All the flavor sensations of a fast food burger without all the who-knows-what that "they" put on it.

Rob and I will eat twice on one pound of grassfed beef.  I use my food scale to weigh out four 4-ounce patties to make sure my I get the best bang for my buck when buying best quality local beef.

I'll have broth later this afternoon.  We're heading out for drinks and dinner this evening.  I'll post my restaurant review and some food pics in a separate post.  I'm going to foam roll and stretch and do my nails and toes now.  I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday.


  1. Your breakfast and salad both look very delicious. I have never tried grass-fed beef but would like to do so. :)

  2. Caron, grassfed beef is really tasty. It needs less cooking than factory meat. Grassfed ground beef, skirt steak and tri-tip are really good bang for the buck cuts for quick cooking. Because the cows feed on green pasture rather than GMO corn, grain and soy, you can imagine that it's much healthier. You are what you eat and you are what you eat eats!
