On Wednesday, I went to lunch with a couple of friends. In a move of sheer irony, this is what it was called:
Fire on the Mountain (like many other places around here) are sending a portion of their profit to help the Red Cross, firefighters, you name it. This restaurant is working on becoming one of the first green restaurants in the area, and they cater to omnivores, vegetarians, and vegans. Here's a peek at their menu. I ordered the lunch special:
Bourbon Chipotle (if you click on the sauce name, it's an interactive menu so click on each of the types to reveal their hotness and veg-friendliness.) Leftovers up close:
I also went to Watercourse Foods yesterday, but was shy in front of the larger group and didn't snap a picture of my salad. I had the Spinach Salad without cheese, and no bread.
Tonight, I'm going to the Colorado Rockies vs. San Diego Padres game with my parents and brother. They'll be having fireworks after the game, so that'll be my 4th of July celebration. As you can imagine, with 13 fires (yes, 13) burning, there is a zero tolerance policy for any kind of fireworks - even sparklers. Some counties near the mountains have canceled their professional shows altogether. I'll try to grab some pictures with my phone, and share them later.
Speaking of fires, most are stabilized and no longer growing. It's all about putting out the remaining flames. Thank you for your thoughts and kind words these past couple of weeks!
Summer List progress: projects around the house are finished, so I can move on to the WWI project and crafting.
