BART Sandwich

BART Sandwich

I made the best dinner tonight out of practically nothing. Best sandwich EVER! Well, this sandwich is a close second. And okay, maybe not quite as good as MBD, but best homemade sandwich, okay? I call it the BART! On toasted, seeded rye bread: Bacon! Avocado slices Romaine Tuna, mixed with a dab of Miracle … Continue reading

Mockingjay

Mockingjay

Before the snow began this morning, I headed to Sidetrack for an early lunch. Exactly one minute after Sidetrack opened, we pulled into our parking spot. Clearly we are eager for that BBQ Slaw. It had been a long time since I last enjoyed Sidetrack’s Beer Battled Pickles, so today seemed like a good day … Continue reading

Mélange Review

Aubree’s Ladies Night

Aubree’s Ladies Night

For as often as I head to Depot Town to visit Sidetrack, I’ve never tried out Aubree’s Pizzeria & Grill, which is right across the street! I am however, on their email list. I am on nearly every local restaurant’s email list, because I like to be in-the-know about local food events! Not long ago … Continue reading

Brecon Grille Review

Brecon Grille Review

This past weekend I redeemed a LivingSocial coupon at a Saline establishment at which I dined for the first time, called Brecon Grille. The deal included two sandwiches and two drinks (a beer, wine, or soft drink) for a discounted price. On top of the deal, my dining companion and I ordered some “Apps and … Continue reading

Pasta Meatball Soup

Pasta Meatball Soup

Ummmm….I blog about soup a lot. Agreed? Is that cool? If this particular soup doesn’t appeal to you, alternatively you can click here and go read my other 46 posts about “Soups, Stews, and Chowders.” Yeah, that’s a lot of soup, in, well, almost two years. That’s right, my blog’s two year anniversary is approaching … Continue reading

Salmon Croquettes

Salmon Croquettes

Remember when people used to join ‘groups’ on Facebook? One of the very first groups I joined was called “Ban Capers,” as a college freshman. In fact, I specifically remember going out for dinner at the Cottage Inn with a group of friends and ordering Chicken Piccata, and realizing that these absurd little green turds … Continue reading

LSO Concert Night – January 2012

LSO Concert Night – January 2012

Last night I did something that I haven’t done in many years – played in an orchestra concert! You may remember me mentioning last fall that I auditioned, and was accepted into, an orchestra affiliated with the health system for which I work. I started playing violin when I was 9, in fourth grade, and … Continue reading

Peace Out Papa Romano’s

Peace Out Papa Romano’s

You guys! I’m so sad that our local Papa Romano’s has closed! Papa Romano’s was the go-to pizza place for the huz and I for the past few years. I used to be able to stand on my apartment balcony and see Papa Romano’s, and even after we moved, I only lived about 2 minutes … Continue reading

Stuffed Shells

Stuffed Shells

I used to make a lot of recipes from Kraft’s magazine and website. They are very accessible recipes, with minimal ingredients that most people have on hand or easy access to, and usually they taste good! After I while I realized (well, I think I always knew but chose to ignore the fact) that a … Continue reading
