Bobby and I spent this weekend up in Ithaca, NY for our college reunion. We didn’t stay in the dorms and go to all the CU Reunion events; we stayed at the Super 8 next to Wegmans with our best friends and we went to a few events that sounded fun (wine tasting!).

(And his too, but he loves it too much, ha.)
Anyway — about a month ago he sent me this picture:
He says: London broil (grass fed), green bean salad with cherry tomatoes, and cooked greens. The meat was a little tough but good.
I think the beans, tomatoes, and greens came from his garden in the backyard.
