A bunch of awesome moments from this week!
(have some of your own? send in a photo/caption to be featured in a future edition of MOW! :)
Strawberries marinating in Kombucha at !
My friend Stephanie performing with her band at an Irish Pub on Cinco De Mayo in the French Quarter! :)
An awesome veggie meal at the restaurant 13 on Frenchman Street in New Orleans!
This was hanging in the kitchen of the place I stayed – ha!! :)
One of my salad creations: really digging the mustard as a dressing!
On my walks through Algiers (right across the Mississippi River from New Orleans), one of the homes I pass – very cool!
Also on Algiers: the gas station from another era!
from Cafe Reconcile (employs at-risk youths and teaches them the food service industry) in NOLA: collard greens, shrimp and okra, and sauteed veggies!
OK, totally not Paleo and full of sugar, but this bread pudding at Cafe Reconcile was worth it! Now I need to find a good recipe that aligns with how I eat!! :)
The day Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are) passed away, I spotted this outside a bar on Magazine Street. Awesome.
A quick stop in Houston en route to El Paso, TX!
An “aerial” shot of my sleeper car aboard Amtrak! I had to hold the camera to the ceiling just to get a good pic – you can even see my feet!
Somewhere in Texas: lots of Pecan orchards!
The train provides such awesome access to absolutely beautiful country!
Manuelito, who I met in Juarez and who I spoke broken Spanish to all day. Very fun to hang out with him!
Why yes, that is a Mexican Army soldier with a gun on a horse behind me! :)
Thought these vehicles were so cool – spotted them in the part in Juarez. This trio was going by so fast I had no idea how the picture turned out – awesome to see the kid staring right at us!
From downtown El Paso – even though it’s a statue, that bird likes to take risks!
