Well, I still cant report on the veggie burger at Houstons, as the restaurant I thought was Houstons, was actually another of their establishments, that is only open for dinner. Since we were meeting Kyle and Nicole and they were coming from Jensen Beach, we picked a half way spot and ended up on Clematis Avenue in downtown West Palm Beach. After looking over some menus, and trying to find something that would be good for all of us, we met at a great place, right on the water, called E.R. Bradley’s Saloon. What a great find it was, and yes, they had a veggie burger. Since I am on a quest to eat them everywhere I can, this was perfect. Oval in shape and served on grainy bread instead of a bun, it was different and yummy. They put tomato and avocado slices on the sandwich, which is how I eat it one at home. The fries were good and the bloody Mary was excellent! The weather was beautiful, the atmosphere was fabulous. Being with Mitch, Kyle and Nicole was the very best part, though. The “kids” look happy and healthy. What more can this mom ask for?
The herbs planted in our garden have gone a very long way. I had all the appropriate Thanksgiving herbs (think Simon and Garfunkel) and now some of the veggies are flowering and “fruiting.” We have tomatoes on almost all our plants and we even have some tiny watermelons on the vine! It’s hard to know what the root veggies are doing down below, but when I saw one of the radishes growing a little too close to the dirt, I had to pull one out and see how they were coming along. This is what I found. Mitch and I shared it and it was just one little perfect radish. Can’t wait to see what else pops up!
As I mentioned in class yesterday, I totally understand why they call stuffing, stuffing! It stuffs you and then calls you back for more. Today, it is back to clean, healthy eating for me. I always play clean up on Sundays, making Monday a much easier day to face. I see lots of veggies on the grill while the Dolphins, hopefully kick some butt on the field. Whatever your Sunday holds, I hope it is filled with happiness and peace.
