Super Bang!

Super Bang!

As has become tradition, this Saturday evening I ordered Chinese take-out for dinner, before The Bang! This time we tried a new-to-us restaurant called San Fu in Ann Arbor. I was delighted by the option of several “healthy choice” entrée options on the menu. From this section of the menu, I ordered the Steamed Chicken … Continue reading

Hooray for Fridays

Hooray for Fridays

Thursday morning I survived on a banana and iced coffee, as I do most days. After commuting from Bethesda to Baltimore, I grabbed a soft pretzel at the airport. Mmm, I haven’t had Auntie Anne’s in a few years. After landing in Detroit, I commuted back to Ann Arbor, and grabbed some Dibella’s on the … Continue reading

Glimpse of Bethesda

Glimpse of Bethesda

This is the first blog post I have ever published from my phone. Forgive me if it’s a bit text-light and photo-heavy, because my iPhone keyboard isn’t exactly conducive to lots of verbiage.

Remember the Stuffed Cabbage Rolls I had at Metzger’s in March? No? Well, it’s okay. Because I do. I remember them well.

I must recreate this at home!” This weekend I made a simplified … Continue reading

Important Life Goals

I know I say it every year, but summer meals involving the grill really are the best! The huz fired up the grill last night and built a fire that he described as an especially “good one.” Meanwhile, indoors, I prepared Corn, Black Bean, & Avocado Salad. The salad is dressed in lime juice, salt, … Continue reading

May the Fourth and Cinco de Mayo

May the Fourth and Cinco de Mayo

Happy Cinco de Mayo! To celebrate, on Friday (technically Cuatro de Mayo), we went to dinner at Sabor Latino. Like last time, we again ordered a pair of frozen margaritas during Happy Hour, enjoyed with chips – special multi-colored ones today, for the holiday! – and salsa. Chiles Rellenos are one of my favorite dishes … Continue reading

Philly Steak and Cheese Stromboli

Philly Steak and Cheese Stromboli

Preparing this evening’s dinner was a little bit of an adventure. Philly Steak and Cheese Stromboli was on the menu, using a recipe from Taste of Home Healthy Cooking magazine. This recipe is actually a “makeover” version of the original version, making it a little easier on the waistline. Strategies used to cut calories include … Continue reading

Buffalo Turkey Burgers

On the menu this evening – Buffalo Turkey Burgers! I found this recipe on the Taste of Home website. The burgers came together easily! I mixed one pound of lean ground turkey with Frank’s, garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper and shaped the mixture into patties. A few minutes per side in a skillet, … Continue reading
