Y-E-S, to Urban Cookhouse

Y-E-S, to Urban Cookhouse!

An impromptu lunch meeting turned into a surprise middle-of-the-day food fest when I stopped by Birmingham’s fresh hot-spot, Urban Cookhouse. Getting there just before the crowd, I was able to peruse the menu at my leisure and was surprised to see that they had much more than the orange rolls and salad I’d been accustomed to.

Taking far too much time to peruse said menu, I finally decided upon an entrée from their “Fork and Knife” section from their menu. I ordered the lime-marinated steak & rice, served with garden salad and a warm orange roll. It was delicious!!!!! I enjoyed a tender, medium rare steak, crispy, flavor-filled salad (even with the onions on top) and fluffy, tender rice pilaf which was perfect with the warm, orange roll on the side and the strawberry lemonade which was about as sugary-sweet and tangy as can be.

Since its first restaurant opened in 2010, and with a menu featuring gourmet selections like wraps, sandwiches, salads and entrees, Urban Cookhouse is a southern specialty serving up the freshest, local ingredients, with a side of undeniable hospitality in the heart of Homewood.

Just a Little Something to Break the Monotony

For the month of November we were challenged by Javacia Bowser of See Jane Write to #BlogLikeCrazy, which means we are charged to be purposeful about writing a blog post every day. At first I was reluctant, like I was last year, but this year I decided to do it, unlike last year.

BLOG

I needed this subtle nudge to get into a routine to break my routine. I’ve been so bogged down with the affairs of life lately that mundane had become my monotony when it came to writing. Yes, I write. I probably write a lot compared to the time others might have to devote to their craft, but of late, I’d not been purposeful about my posts. I was just writing and posting when I felt like it. Blah….

Well, no more, at least not for the month of November. I’m going to break the routine of randomness by writing and/or posting each day according to my topics on Life Gets Better and Angela Eats the Ham. So starting now, I’ll offer a sampling of my a’ la carte menu in the following categories (unless something major happens like I meet the man of my dreams, meet Oprah and/or Gayle, receive a HUGE lump sum of money, get a fabulous new job or witness a miracle performed in the life of someone I love, self included).

I’ll post from the following topics and categories in an effort to be even more organized for what’s next for my blog sites and all the crazy/good, wonderful, hopefully motivational, delicious, thought-provoking, spirit-lifting, mouth-watering, sometimes scary, reflective, many times TMI (too much information) thoughts which come to mind and make it to the post.

Buckle up and let’s enjoy this ride. Let’s make it a November to remember.
