In Foodie, Obsession, Postcards on 17 July 2012 at 12:38 am
I ‘ve been thinking and rethinking about what I want Bamola to be. Knowing myself, I tend to be quite wordy and can easily toss out an essay jam packed with tons of words. Such essays would be “over think and over say” on my part. I want to avoid that at all cost. I desire to be concise in all things. Considering that, and all that I want to do with this blog, I feel this little project of mine will turn into a food photography blog with just a couple of words directing a hungry stomach to local or international restaurants or even introduce things I whip up in the wonderful place called THE KITCHEN. We shall see.
I have also been considering a revamp of the over all look of the blog. For a while I have been checking out themes and I think I have found one I really dig. Without being too hasty I will ponder upon it a little more.
In New York City, No Nom Posts on 11 July 2012 at 4:52 pm
Seems life whisked me away (forced hiatus) and held me hostage against my will. Fall of last year my family began what would be a long and tedious journey of caring for my grandmother. No one knew it would be this difficult. No one suspected that grandma would make things so difficult. I have been to New York City twice. These weren’t one week trips. Try a month and a half and then back up there for another three weeks. My dear mom has been there over four times trying to get financial matters together as well as dealing with family members who want this and that but don’t really want to help.
SO~ while I was in New York being supportive and taking notes on what NOT to do to family and my monies in my golden years, I was sucking in New York like I usually do. I love New York. It is a gastronomical playground for me. Chinatown, Little Korea and Japan, bakeries in the Bronx and Manhattan…I love it. I consume it. I always look for one more place to taste and see what they are about.
In Restaurants, St. Augustine, Vegan friendly, Vegetables, Vegetarian on 25 September 2011 at 11:37 pm
This wonderful cafe is a delight! Almost bordering on being a shrine for manatees, this place has a fun decor and a huge heart for sea cows. The colors are relaxing as is the atmosphere.
The majority of their food is vegan friendly and mighty good. I had their Veggie Burrito #1 (pictured above) with a side of tabouli and crunchy blue corn chips. The sweet potato was a nice surprised and added a unique flavor to the meal. Everything tasted FRESH! Kg (new friend!) had their veggie burger which I think I should have gotten and will probably get the next time I go. It was stacked, beautiful and I totally didn’t get a pic of it. It had black beans and onions which are a total selling point, so yeah, I think I will be getting that.
