Good morning and happy Sunday! 😎
This morning, Mal offered to buy me breakfast, so I suggested a new diner (for us) called for Uncle Charlies.
The vibe and food at Uncle Charlies were pretty standard of a diner in the area– homey, cozy, and a little old-fashioned. It was no Wheelhouse, but Mal and I were very happy with our experience.
As always, we started with a round of iced coffees with milk.
(Please note Mal’s new Lululemon sweatshirt in the photo above. He’s obsessed!)
To eat, I ordered two eggs with home fries and raisin toast. I guess you could say it was ”˜my usual’ diner breakfast.
The eggs and the toast were great””just how I like ”˜em! But, I have to admit that the home fries at the Wheelhouse Diner are a lot better. The potatoes for the home fries are cut fresh everyday at the Wheelhouse and have tons of onions and garlic in them. Uncle Charlies home fries are probably the frozen variety, but they add onions, bacon, and spices to theirs, so they’re quite tasty.
Clearly, we were satisfied customers.
I try not to get too NuVal-y on CNC (I like to save it for Trading Up Downtown), but I just had to share this news.
Last week, my NuVal boss sent an article from the Mankato Free Press with a story about Monte Meyer, a Pastor at Minnestor State University and Hy-Vee customer, who has lost 277 pounds. Monte credits his success to a three-part plan that includes nutrition, exercise, and accountability. NuVal is included in the nutrition component!
My colleague, Melissa, who writes A Better Bag of Groceries, was able to track down Monte and interview him over the telephone. Please take a moment to read Monte’s inspirational story, and if you feel compelled, leave him a comment. He says that the support of others really helps him on his journey. He still has 96 pounds to go!
