Waterfront for City Pulse

Not my favorite place, by a long shot.


Remember when I went there before? I hated it then, too.

What I've Been Eating

Blueberries, almond butter, a few chocolate chips.
 Protein Pancakes.

One mashed banana, two eggs whisked in, a tablespoon of ground flax seed, a shake of cinnamon and a bit of vanilla. Cooked over low heat in a greased skillet for about ten minutes.

Blueberries, almond butter, honey.
The topping possibilities are endless.

Peanut butter, strawberries.
 Sometimes, on Fridays, I add a little cocoa powder.

Blueberries, butter.
Raspberries, almond butter.
I think you get the picture.


The best pork chop I've ever had. Bar none. It came from Ham Sweet Farm, where I've been getting my meat of late as a member of their ingenious meat CSA. Near the first of the month, I get an email saying my share is ready. I head out to the farm and load up on chicken, pork, bacon, steak, hamburgers. . .

I marinated these chops in cranberry balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic salt and lemon pepper. Sometimes (ALL the time, who are we kidding) the simplest preparation is the absolute best.


Hamburgers from Leroy's. In between a wedding ceremony and reception a few weeks ago, the dreamboat and I headed to Leroy's with a few friends. I'd heard that the burgers are killer. The rumors were true. We will go back this afternoon to celebrate my birthday, and the fact that it's Sunday, and that this burger deluxe is $4.25.


Trust me.
