Nothing Edible This Week.

So, I’ve been laid up since April 6, recovering from surgery. It’s a pure “BRAT” diet for me these days (banana, rice, apple sauce, and tea) while my body shrugs off the effects of anesthesia, pain, nausea, and basically lying inert for six days. I’m as weak as a newborn calf. Yuck. Needless to say, unless I want to review the Mott’s I had for lunch, there’s not much to talk about.

In preparation for the hospital stay, Hubby and I did enjoy a Lost Weekend of sorts – dining at The Upstairs, Zocalo, and Thai ’99 #2. I knew I’d be sipping chicken broth for a while and so stuffed my gob with Thai, steak, and Bloody Mary’s. Reviews of all these adventures will be up soon. Right now I can barely sit up for more than 20 minutes, much less blog! But I took good notes, so all is well. More reviews. Up soon.

In the meantime, Heartland Harvest Farm will be making deliveries to Charlottesville on Tuesday 4/21 from 2:30pm-4pm. Dropoff is at the Classic Furniture store up Route 29N, across from Toys ‘R Us near Whole Foods. Below is a list of what they have available. All Heartland Harvest Farm products have been raised with biologically friendly methods. In other words, no drugs or growth hormones and no chemical fertilizers or sprays.

Heartland takes checks or cash and there is a 15% delivery charge with a maximum of $15.00 on each order. No orders under $10.00. Email your order to Heartland Harvest Farm by Friday, April 17th, and include your phone number with your order. And enjoy your week – Saturday should be a good one for getting out to the Farmer’s Market and the Earth Week Eco-Fair on the Downtown Mall. Cheers!

  1. Wishing you well as you recuperate! Your pre-op preparation was brilliant – just think about those delicious meals as you spoon up that Mott’s! The faster you recover, the quicker you’ll be back on the Menu Trail! 8-)

  2. Thanks for the add at Food Buzz. I had to hop over when I saw your name–I met my husband while we were both in graduate school at UVA (CompSci for him, law for me), Cville was where I learned to eat Thai food when Thai 99 OPENED (haha now I am dating myself)… we come back a lot, including this May, because I still see some doctors there, and we are very sad to realize that Thai 99 was not as good as we remembered once we, you know, went to Thailand! But the Thai place next to The Brick Oven is pretty good. Anyway I'll be following your blog to know where to eat when we come. I have found some fabulous new places (I dream about the Albemarle Baking Co sticky buns) but a lot of my faves (Mono Loco) are under new ownership with totally different (read: disappointing) new menus. Have you been to C&O?

  3. @Tangled Noodle – thanks for the well wishes! Yep, I expect to be chowin' down and reviewin' here real soon.@Laura – Yes, not to sound like a "used to live in a big town snob" but the NOODLES especially at Thai '99 #2 are stupendous. And haven't hit C&O yet – but am budgeting for it, lol! Thanks for reading!
