……. I mostly juice, eat a lot of veggies and occasional fruits. maybe once a week will have meat — IF I’m craving it. Problem with traveling by plane, cannot take my juicer which #1 is expensive but #2 weighs a ton. Its one of those low wattage masticating juicers. #3- nor is it easy to take prepared juices thru security. That is a double edge sword anyway, cuz fresh juices are best. Last night my hotel recommended a restaurant so off I trekked. Most of the veggies listed had added sauces, etc. While I only use real buttah or coconut oil at home, it’s hard eating out! So I asked the waitress if I could order off the menu with veggies broiled with a baked potato on the side. She was confused so out came the chef. He understood right away and while it would be a wait for the very nice plate of broiled squash and sweet potato, carrot and onions (!), I was served a small 4 oz portion (my choice) of local sourced bison steak. It was melt-in-my-mouth awesomeness!! A small fresh salad on the side of spinach, cherry tomatos and local made goat cheese — while I do have cheese on occasion I went with his recommendation that had a very light vinegrette and IT WAS FANTASTIC!!! The bison and salad would’ve been enough to satisfy me, but the broiled veggies pretty much served as my dessert. I told him no processed sugar, just real honey, so those veggies were served with a small bowl of melted butter and honey I drizzled over the plate. Thanks to the Hardware Grill for a great dinner! Definitely on my list next time I am in the area!
Friday the 13th is traveling home with a side trip to Oregon for a few days to stop in a few quilt stores I’ve been wanting to shop in and visit with any quilters hanging out! 🙂 Then back on a plane to home. I am lucky I can work on a plane writing, or planning, or planning to write, making notes, making lists, and LISTS OF LISTS! And checking emails from friends and those who I co-own dogs with to see who is winning where and when new babies are expected. Happy 13th and safe travels!
