Thanks for all the comments on my last post re: weight. Sounds like a lot of us wouldn’t mind losing a few pounds, and it can definitely be a struggle. It’s nice to have company.
Having a community and a base of friends to support you is really important. I was reading Coco’s post a few minutes ago and she talked about how her best friends are the ones from her childhood. I think this is true for me too. As I get older it seems like friendships get more and more superficial. I was in California for almost 2 years and I didn’t make a single lasting friendship. In college I did make friends, but we’ve all drifted.

Walks… I got in my 2-mile walk to work, and actually got in an extra ~1 mile at lunch. We met up with Bobby’s parents for lunch at Whole Foods in Union Square. Last night we got together with his family again (cousins too) up by Columbia. Greek food is good.
No walk this morning, but I got ~1 mile at lunch and then maybe 2 after work (Chinatown).
I met up with Bobby and his family for lunch again – this time at Mesa Grill, Bobby Flay’s restaurant. This was the best meal I’ve had in a really long time. I opted for the “Smoked Lamb Cobb Salad” (with Avocado, Tomato, Maytag Blue Cheese, Eggs, Bacon + Buttermilk Dressing)…
I substituted shrimp instead of lamb and nixed the blue cheese. It was awesome. The egg and avocado really made this dish. The shrimp seasonings were to die for. Bobby got a “Pressed Roasted Pork Sandwich”, Tina got the “Shrimp + Roasted Garlic Corn Tamale” (I think this was the best order), mom got “Smoked Shrimp Tacos” (a Bobby Flay classic), and dad got another classic, the “Mesa Burger”. We all shared the deliciously spiced fries.
Before the meal they brought out the bread basket – I tried the cornbread, which was half blue and half yellow.
Do you like cornbread?
