We usually eat at home. On weekends we grab lunch out when we ride somewhere or when we are running errands. Overall, we keep the dining out to a minimum. This past weekend we had to grab lunch out more often than we are used to, also eat much later than we usually do. A family member has been dealing with medical issues so we've been visiting at the hospital, hence, our schedules have been off a bit.
Trying to keep it a little healthier I opted for Taziki's signature pasta salad. We had recently enjoyed gyros there, very fresh and plentiful ingredients. This salad was packed with chicken, tomatoes, feta and a ton of pasta. Honestly, it was so much pasta I couldn't finish it. I probably wouldn't get it again but that doesn't mean I don't like it.
Next we have a Cobb Salad. Ok, I know (as does everyone who can read the ingredients list) that a Cobb salad is not usually healthy. Too much blue cheese and definitely too much bacon! But it was a late lunch again and this appealed. See how large? This is the lunch portion, the smaller portion. No way could I eat a larger salad, I didn't quite finish this one.
We have been eating at home in the evenings and cooking healthy chow, that's the preferable thing to do. Coupled with a good bottle of Beaujolais and some music....that's relaxing.
In other news, I guess it's not really news, Aja is doing well. She is 15 and she is on some medication temporarily but otherwise doing well. We are wishing away the hot summer months so we can finally take a long ride. It's always good to ride a distance and get lunch out of town but lately it's been very rainy and extremely hot. I've been reading quite a bit and noting it in my journal but not blogging much. I would like to get back to that.
Hope all is well in your world.
