Lunch w/ wine
PF Chang's has a really good deal on wine flights: choose any three wines available by the glass & get three 2.5-ounce pours for $9. Of course, I pick from the high end, and the pours often tip a bit over 2.5 ounces. Today I had a Viognier blend from Treana, a New Zealand Pinot Noir and (my favorite) a Hess cabernet sauvignon. For food, I got the shrimp with lobster sauce, a large portion and brought half of it home.
Here's a way to find good places to eat when you're traveling. It's (appropriately) called Find Eat Drink, a website and an iPhone app. (I have a Droid but also an iPad, and hope it will work on the pad) Click on photo for link.
At the University of Cincinnati, I teach writing, reporting and research methods to journalism students as well as a course in mass communication.
I also write a "Healthy Foodie" column, with co-author Mary Ann Barnes, M.D., for the magazine Whole Living Journal, which is distributed in the Cincinnati metro area.
I'm a freelance food and travel writer, a dedicated exercise fanatic (have been since my 20s) and an avid gardener, reader, cook and moviegoer. I'm live in Cincinnati with my husband, George, and recently lost my sweet mother, who died peacefully at 91.
