|Couldn't quite get the shot angle right, but you get the idea. The salad was great too. I forgot to tell them to hold the croutons, but I didn't eat them!|

Chillin' At The Beach!
Long time no blog! I have been at the shore for the past week or so. It’s very peaceful and nice down here. Easy to ride your bike, or take a walk, and love the lazy days of reading on the beach. My house here is smaller and it’s easy to keep things neat and tidy, and mostly my plants are in pots, so not too much gardening to do. Always dog poop to pick up though! Thank you princess TMI!!!
I find when I’m down here alone, I eat much more simply. Now I know you can’t blame others for overeating, or eating things you shouldn't, but it sure is easy when you don’t have the temptations around everywhere, and you only have to cook for one.
Yesterday was rainy and I went out to do some errands. I was hungry and didn't want fast food, so I stopped into a Red Robin restaurant. We don’t have any near our house in PA, so this was new to me. The server explained they were mainly a burger place, although their salad menu looked great too.
So I ordered a fabulous burger named from something to do with the movie Wolverine. Not being a movie buff, I have no idea what it means, but here is how it’s described:
– Inspired by everyone’s favorite anti-hero, this burger packs an explosive punch of flavor! The Berserker Burger features a fire-grilled burger topped with zesty aioli, spicy pickles, Sriracha onion straws and Cheddar cheese on a brioche bun. This bold burger has Wolverine claw marks in the bun and is served with Bottomless Steak Fries.
Now you can order this on any sort of bun you want, or wrapped in lettuce! I know you Cali girls get your burgers like this all the time, but I have never seen it offered before like this with lettuce as a bun option. I was able to substitute the bottomless fries (tempting but I passed!) for a side salad.
The best part is the burger came wrapped in foil which made it easy to eat. I HONESTLY didn’t feel deprived of the bun at all, and the photo with the bun sure made it look tempting. I could have ordered it that way and had half the bun, but portion control has never been my forte!! There were no claw marks on my lettuce, but I tried not to let that ruin my lunch!!
Hope all is well with everyone. Sending love and hugs from me to you!! XO
