On the Road Again

Yesterday was a bit of a bust as we were on the road for most of the day and I was at the mercy of restaurants for my food intake and the only exercise I did was turning pages in a book!

I did my best, though, opting for the tossed salad with grilled mahi at the biker bar. Loki got most of the garlic bread balanced atop there, I tossed the rest along with most of the dressing. I shudder to think that had I not ordered it on the side the measly amount of salad underneath would be swimming in all of that junk!

At least I didn't have the Rodeo Burger as Beren did. This thing was smothered in BBQ sauce, Swiss Cheese & mayo, then topped with bacon and jalapenos! Along with most of the fries, he was able to finish half of that monster. UGH!

Because I don't have a full-length camera at home, I took a "headshot" for you in the ladies room. Headshot, get it? I crack myself up.

We went to dinner at a local seafood restaurant, a favorite with the retirement crowd. ...rolling eyes..I was looking for a nice atmosphere to kick off the (early) weekend and I got that even even if the menu left something to be desired.

I ordered Orange Roughy stuffed with crabmeat and a baked potato, could not bring myself to pay $2.95 for a tiny side salad. I definitely need to make up in the vegetable department today so bright & early this morning we headed to the flea/farmers market.

The nice lady weighed my purchase for me; I came home with eleven pounds of fruits & veggies!

Beren asked, "Are you going to eat all of that in the next three days?" To which I replied, "I'm going to eat only that for the next three days!" Not really, but close!

Well, it's about lunchtime here so I'd better get busy preparing some of that loveliness! Afterward I'm going to settle down with Tosca's new book I just picked up from the library, then off to a beauty appointment. Dinner tonight is to be determined but you can bet some contents of that basket will be included!

Hope you're all having a lovely day - TGIF!


  1. Looks like a good time being had there. that Rodeo Burger loks so good, but not so good for me. Mahi definitely the winner dinner; or was it lunch?

    Have a great weekend!

  2. So jealous of your early weekend! Great plan for food for the next little bit. Produce looks delicious when it is all together and arranged like that.

  3. Beren certainly knows how to eat. I thought that the other day when you showed him making breakfast. You have confirmed that my faith is well-placed. That Rodeo Burger looks and sounds amazing!

    That wouldn't be a HOT PINK dress you're wearing would it? Very cool :)

  4. You look amazing! I love a blog with lots of photos!

    Havew a wonderful time- i'm jealous!

  5. Mark, lol, he certainly enjoys his food! ;)

    That is indeed a hot pink dress, thank you!

  6. SherRon, I agree, the colors of the produce blending like that does look lovely!

  7. Patrick, the mahi was for lunch and you're right, I much preferred it over the burger! Believe me, Beren was suffering for it later, lol!
