Depending on where you are, you may have gotten some snow the other day – for many locations in the US, it was a nice, wintery foot and a half or so.
Now I realize it isn’t as easy to get around in inclement weather (or the aftermath)… And I, too, have to stand on those horrific impending-apocalypse lines at the supermarket. But I LOVE the Seasons, and I LOVE snow – it changes things up and gives us a chance to SLOW DOWN (rest days? What are those?!)
My man and I decided to venture out during the blizzard (I mean, why make it easy for ourselves!?) The pubs in the area had promised to stay open and sure enough, they were. We wandered (er, were wind-blown!) into one we hadn’t yet tried, and were delightfully surprised – there may have been only four of us in the entire place, but they were incredibly accommodating.
Not only was I able to get coffee with almond milk (how many pubs have that, you ask? Not many!), but I was also able to order something clean and delicious for lunch – sliced, roasted turkey.
The menu was very limited but the bartender didn’t bat a lash when I said I didn’t drink, and that I wanted turkey…minus the sandwich part! It seems like a small thing, but it is the kind of accommodation and consideration I truly appreciate – while the world has become more conscious overall, offering healthy options at restaurants, it still can’t be expected that every establishment is on board.
I’m not as flexible with my nutritional choices as most people and I am always and ever thankful to be met with “no problem” or even “let me double check for you!”
The turkey happened to be UH-MAZING, and I made a point to tell the owner that if I liked it…it is DEFINITELY good!
Yes indeed, Mrs. Particular LOVED it – it was just what I needed for a snowy day.
