by Meghann on January 22, 2009

Blog world I would like to introduce you to Blue… Blue this is the Blog World ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m sure you guys are going to be great friends! ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s right I finally was able to pick up my new bike today and she’s BEAUTIFUL!!

Turns out I was completely wrong about the bike being used, its actually brand new! The guy I bought it from make a living building bikes in his garage. He orders the parts, builds the bikes and then sells them at a reasonable price, how cool is that?

I took her for a test run and I am already in love. I can’t wait to start training. I also realized I have so much to learn about road bikes. One day at a time.

This afternoon I went straight from my Doctors appointment to meet my Dad on the other side of Orlando. I was pretty hungry and knew it would be at least a couple of more hours until dinner so I stopped at Publix to buy a snack.

While I was browsing the aisles look what I stumbled upon.

The missing Kashi Bars!

I enjoyed the Raspberry Chocolate version so much that I barely made it to the parking lot before I was trying the Pumpkin Pie Flavor.

OMG, Heaven!

Seriously the Pumpkin flavor was so rich and yummy. I can not wait to try the Coconut Chocolate version tommorrow!

After we picked up Blue, my Dad and I headed out for dinner over on my side of town. We tried a great little cuban restaraunt called Habana Grill.

My Dad has been asking to eat here for a while and now I see why, this place was great.

We started with warm pressed Cuban Bread. So warm and so good.

The menu was extensive and Cuban authentic. They had so many yummy dishes I couldn’t decide what to get. I eventually decided to go with a Saladito (‘Little Latin Bite’) and a side dish to complete my meal.

The Saladito I selected was called the Tuna Cubanachi which was raw yellow fin tuna diced with avocadoes, red onions, cucumbers and cilantro then tossed with a blend of spices and lime juices.

This dish was so flavorful, I loved it.

When I saw Boiled Yucca on the menu I knew I had to have it.

I love Yucca. I love it baked, I love it fried, I love it boiled, I love Yucca! This version did not disappoint. I was thrown off by the butter, but that didn’t deter me from eating the whole side. ๐Ÿ™‚

When I got home I dug in the fridge for the last of the Oreo Bark Melissa had sent me before christmas. ๐Ÿ™‚

At the Desk Lunch

January 22, 2009

I have a doctorโ€™s appointment this afternoon, so I had lunch at my desk to make up the time difference. For some reason my stomach was growling at me today. I had my midmorning snack of a Tangerine at 10:00am but for some reason that was not enough. I held off as long as I more ยป
