I jut got back from the Ellyn Satter Institute meeting. Another several days of enjoying luscious meals with no diet or pseudo-nutrition talk. What a pleasure! I’m hunkered down working on a round of copy edits for my book. As I was looking at the section about eating out, I saw that I mentioned Ruby Tuesday’s which hasĀ  booths and a buffet (two of my critical restaurant criteria with small kids). I felt the urge to make a quick post. So, the regular broccoli served with an adult...

Note, I will be out of town and not posting for the week of Jan 20- Jan 29th… We went to Rosedale mall recently.

There are these amazing Amenids all over the floor and we have a great time walking around looking for them.
