Touch & Go

Posted: April 10, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Hellloooo!!! I have been so out of touch it feels like. Our internet has been a pain the past couple of days. It was pretty touch and go with its connection. That means I have been out of the loop and don't know if I will be able to catch up on blogs. Let me know if I missed anything big! This post will be touch and go too so I can get it up before we have any more issues.

How is everyone's weekend going? Mine has been a bit of a rollercoaster. More on that tomorrow. Right now, I want to focus on the best part of my weekend so far. A blogger meet-up! I got to meet up with my pal Lindsey. We met through a fitness forum awhile ago and became good friends through that site. Now she is planning on getting a blog up and running soon which I am very excited about. I will be certain to link to it here so you can check her out. She is awesome!

Lindsey & I met have met before for lunch when she flies out of the Atlanta airport, but it is always rushed and I have a certain 20 lb tot commanding my attention during the visits. So we planned on catching lunch this weekend at a halfway point, just us and with no time limits.

We headed to a place called The Red Tomato in Brolingbroke, GA. Yes, it is just as small town as it sounds. But we wanted a good halfway point and this place had the best reviews out of anything we looked into. The restaurant is very quaint, housed in a cozy cottage.


We decided to dine outside on the deck since the weather was ideal - sunny & low 70s.

Our waiter pointed out the daily specials to us, which all sounded good, although a little heavy for lunch.

Daily Special Table


So we ended up settling on something from the lunch menu. Lindsey got a tuna patty burger with some parsley potatoes that looked good. I chose the chicken southwestern wrap with a fruit cup on the side. The wrap had chicken, a creamy salsa, cheddar, tomato, avocado, and lots of lettuce. The fruit was a mix of cantaloupe, grapes, and pineapples with a strawberry yogurt + poppyseed drizzle over the mix. It was the perfect side for such a nice day. Everything was really good.

Funny story...that is a picture of my leftovers because I didn't have my camera battery mid lunch. I wasn't about to leave good conversation to go out to the car to grab it, besides the fact I didn't think about it at that moment. Since I had leftovers, I figured I could nab some sort of you picture. And you know what's even better? I had to toss the leftovers after taking a picture because traffic left me in the car for 3. 5 hours on the way home and I figured the chicken wasn't so good anymore.  But hey, a picture is a picture.

I think our waiter had a bit too much fun getting pictures of us. And sharing all the details of his Lasik surgery he had the previous day. He was great though and helped to keep us entertained. Not that we needed it. Conversation always flows between us. I sure will miss her when she moves away from Georgia. At least I know we have one or two more visits planned before then. Thanks for a great afternoon Lindsey! 🙂
