Around Town: Ono Grinds Poke

It’s finally Spring (really, it is) and it time to change-up the breakfast options for the warmer temps.  Admittedly, we aren’t breakfast people but we make a conscious effort to”break the fast” from the  night before and smoothie bowls have become a “thing”.

I’ve been wanting to try a smoothie bowl for a while but it was a hard sell when the high temperature struggled to reach 50 degrees on any given day.  So, I took the plunge  recently and tried one from our favorite Hawaiian Poke restaurant.

Each bowl starts with a base of your choice; I started with an Acai berry base, then all the fruit (see below). It was heaven in a bowl – and it was the small.



Recently, I got the Pitaya based bowl and again ❤ ❤ ❤ (below):


This will be my breakfast/brunch “treat yo’self” treat for the Spring and Summer.

Feel free to drool. . until next time.

Glimpse of Spring

If you happen to live in the North East you know the struggle is real ! ! We have been praying for Spring weather since the April began.

Well, Mother Nature pulled us back from the ledge with a couple of beautiful days last month. We (“hubby” and I) set out to take advantage of the warm temps by walking for about 30 mins around town.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from our walk.

Keep channeling Spring.      until next time . .

Around Town: Edison Ale House

We (“hubby” and I ) consider ourselves “foodies”. We love finding local eateries to dine.  This local “gem” looks small from the outside, but the inside has the feel of an Irish pub (see here).

My “meatatarian” tried the Iron Bound Burger (below):


I, however opted for the Blackened Salmon Wrap ( seen below):


The atmosphere was nice and quickly began to fill as people attending the hockey game came to dine before the 8pm start. We enjoyed the meal and look forward to trying some of the other menu items in the future.

I’ll leave these here so you can drool . . until next time.
