Jungle Jim's -- for lunch
I hadn't been out to the amazing foodie emporium Jungle Jim's in a couple of years, but my friend from Atlanta wanted to check out the new expansion. (The latest addition is a really nice housewares department, by the way.) We had lunch at the cafe, and were pleased to see the healthy choices. There are three soups, one of which -- tomato basil with chunks of other veggies -- had nothing but good ingredients. The sub sandwiches are available in half size or whole, and one of the bread choices is a multigrain bun. I had black bean hummus with roasted red pepper and other fresh veggies along with a low-fat yogurt dressing. That and the tomato soup were both quite delicious. Then we spent hours perusing Jim's fabulous store. I wish it wasn't 20 miles from my house (in Fairfield) or I'd be a regular visitor.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
