Of Burritos & Running

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009 · 2 Comments

I love a burrito. Especially when it’s free. And even if it’s from a chain. As Jen always says: It’s the perfect food. It contains ingredients from all the food groups, and we both agree we could eat burritos for every meal. Today I did for two out of three. Just got home from the […]

Birthday Porch Sitting & Dinner @ Leon’s

Monday, April 6th, 2009 · 3 Comments

I’ve been accused of letting my blog turn too much into a running-focused blog, and have been encouraged by more than one reader — including Dan of Fun in Saratoga, whom we last saw at the UPH Fundraiser a couple weeks ago — to write more about the restaurants we visit and the food we […]

Running: Live Longer & Eat More. A Lot More.

Friday, August 15th, 2008 · 2 Comments

 If you want to live longer and eat whatever the hell you want, start running. Or swimming. A lot. First, the living longer. In a new study that spanned 20 years, Stanford researchers found that a group of runners were less disease-prone and more likely to live longer: Running ‘can slow ageing process’ Running not […]

Casserole Potluck

Monday, March 24th, 2008 · No Comments

Once upon a Saturday, March 8, 2008, Alex and Cati (potluck professionals) hosted a casserole potluck party. Jen and I made the Mean Green Casserole Machine, which was green beanlicious. The competition was tough and our casserole didn’t take top honors that night — some might argue because it was so good, no one really […]

Leon’s Valentine’s Day Dinner

Monday, February 25th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Jen had class the night of actual Valentine’s Day and had her wisdom teeth removed the day after, so we celebrated Valentine’s Day this year on February 13. Where’d we go? Well, I had just returned from my California trip and Jen was jealous of all the delicious Mexican food I ate, so we went […]

Bloomers rules. As of last night, it is one of our top two favorite restaurants in Saratoga Springs, along with Beekman Street Bistro. Coincidentally (or not?), both are bistros. The Bloomers subtitle is “An American Bistro.” Housed in a beautifully remodeled old diner on Route 9 (technically in Ballston Spa, not Saratoga, but close enough), […]

Walk & Eat Less Meat, Save the Planet

Tuesday, November 13th, 2007 · No Comments

I was really glad to see this story in Sunday’s Times Union — Fighting fat and climate change: One numbers-crunching scientist calculates that if all Americans between 10 and 74 walked just half an hour a day instead of driving, they would cut the annual U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide, the chief greenhouse gas, by […]

Oktoberfest Beer Tasting & Brewery

Sunday, September 30th, 2007 · 2 Comments

Big thanks to Renée and Jason for hosting a great Oktoberfest beer tasting at their place in Troy yesterday (yes, I’m blogging about a current event!). Jen, Patricia, and I cruised to riverfront Troy with 6-packs chilling in our cooler. Jen and I brought Mendocino Brewing Company Oktoberfest (brewed at our very own Olde Saratoga […]

Chez Sophie Reply Letter

Thursday, September 27th, 2007 · 4 Comments

Wow, yesterday’s blog entry about our terrible Chez Sophie experience really struck a chord with all of you! I haven’t gotten that much feedback on any blog post in ages. I guess that tells me what’s important to people — that being treated well in dining is universally important, and that the controversy is fun. […]
