This weekend you can still catch the Restaurant Week deals at many area eateries. Last night I went with friends to Hugo's in Oakley, and tried the yummy shrimp and grits (in photo). It's not a light or especially healthy dish, so the smaller restaurant-week portion was a great way to indulge without going over the top. Click on the link above to see what restaurants are in this game. Hugo's, along with quite a few others, are offering a three-course meal for $26.11, not including tax and tip -- or liquor, of course. Official dates for the deals are March 11-20, which is a little longer than a week.
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.
