Do you have spots in your town that seem to be unable to keep a tenant?
There is a location in my neighborhood that has become a revolving door for restaurants. It is unfortunate, but the property owner has come up with a unique idea to combat the problem.
Let the people choose! Literally. They took suggestions and narrowed them down the the Top 5. Now we get to vote! Since I obviously have a ton of influence… VOTE FOR THE HIGH END MARKET!!!
I loved Savi when I visited the Inman Park market a few weeks ago. Midtown has nothing like it. I would definitely walk to it 2-3 times a week if we did!
A week into the cleanse and we made the best cleanse meal yet.
By “we” I mean Mom. Though I added the kale and red pepper flakes!
If you are making your own sauce, start it first. It is better when the flavors have time to meld together!
We blended a container (750g) of Pomi chopped tomatoes and 3/4 C of basil, simmered the mixture in a pot, and added salt and red pepper flakes to taste as we went.
Sugar isn’t allowed on the Cleanse, but mom remembered that carrots add sweetness and combat acidity.
This was a great addition since tomato sauces often call for sugar to balance the acidity and eggplants can be on the bitter side.
