Swahili Village

Of all the ethnic restaurant that are readily available in the D.C. area I haven’t really had the opportunity to come across one dedicated to Kenyan food until now. Swahili Village offered just that. When I stepped in I wont lie, I was taken aback normally African restaurants in this area have a mom and pop…

Tom’s BaoBoa

The idea of finding a Chinese steam bun cafe in downtown Providence, Rhode Island was something that never crossed my mind but once the cafe was seen I just had to go in and give it a try. Tom’s Bao Bao is a Chinese Chain that has has recently been expanded to the united States…

Judy’s Island Grill II

If you are craving quality Jamacain food Judy’s Island Grill is the place to go, especially the second location in Glen Burnie, MD. The menu is pretty straight forward with the normal fare you would expect to see offered; beef patties, ox tail, jerk chicken, etc. But what really makes the restuarant is the staff. I…

Brown Bag Challenge *FINAL WEEK* Recap

Can I say that I am extremely relieved! The Brown Bag Challenge is officially over and life can become semi normal. For week 4 because the finish line was in sight it gave me the motivation to really push myself to bring my lunch to work. And boy was I successful. On Monday I brought tomato stew…

Brown Bag Challenge Week 3 Recap

I will be the first to say that I am the absolute worst when it comes to daily blogging. So apologies for making a lofty promise that’s a bit hard to keep. Week 3 of the Brown Bag Challenge ended…well not too great. I brought food in to work 2 of the 5 days :(….

Brown Bag Challenge Day 7

Today was a lazy but successful day. Lazy in that I took Haystacks in as lunch. Literally tortilla chips, beans, salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream. The idea being that I’d assemble and eat during lunch. And successful in that I took my lunch in to work. Yay me!!! Because I was between 2 client sites today,…

Brown Bag Challenge Day 5&6 Recap

3 out of 6 is all I can really say right now. So far I was able to bring my meals 3 out of the 6 days the challenge has run. I realize that when ever I run late, I’m prone to leaving my meals in the fridge and purchasing. On Friday I was running…

Brown Bag Challenge Day 4

Today I epically failed the Brown Bag Challenge. I was running late this morning and missed the ideal window to leave by 5 minutes. While it seems its not that big a deal, those 5 minutes make the difference between beating traffic or sitting in it for 30 minutes. In the rush I didn’t grab…

Brown Bag Challenge Day 3

Day 3 of the Brown Bag Challenge was much better than Day 2. I had the battery in my car replaced so everything was good on that front. In terms of my meal I had fruit salad for breakfast, and Chili…again. 😦 It still tastes good but I seriously over it at this point. Next week…

Brown Bag Challenge Day 2

Today started roughly. I packed my lunch bag, fruit and Chili. Gathered my laptop and work bags. Went out to my car. Put everything inside. Then prepared to pull out the drive way. I turned the key to start the engine. Nothing. I tried again. Nothing. The car battery had completely died on me. I…

Brown Bag Challenge Day 1

If you are a working person, you definitely understand the challenge packing and bringing lunch to work can present. Sometimes it’s too tiring to make food; the selections are too boring; or the pressure to lunch with coworkers it huge. But I recently reviewed my bank statements and was appalled by how much I was…
