Cranston, Rhode Island.
At least in my humble opinion!
Hello from Connecticut! Iâ€™m in New England yet again for another Operation Beautiful presentation. If youâ€™re keeping score, that means I was in Boston on Monday, Cincinnati on Tuesday, Charlotte on Wednesday, and now Iâ€™m in New Haven! Whew. Itâ€™s been a fun week.
I had a two-hour drive from the airport to my destination, so I stopped off at WF for lunch and a dinner to go. Truly â€“ the best hot bar that Iâ€™ve ever seen. It was small but packed with goodies. We have two more â€˜barsâ€™ at the Charlotte Whole Foods location and the overall quality of selection pales in comparison to the Cranston offerings!
Grilled zucchini, artichokes, a yummy tofu and onion mix, balsamic mushrooms, roasted potatoes, grape leaves (!!).
And later, for dinner:
A salad with loads of wonderful veggies. The best part was this quinoa-wild rice cake. There were cranberries and green onions packed in. Iâ€™m going to try to recreate this at home.
My presentation went well, but when I left the building, I was confronted by SNOW. Lots and lots of snow.
Itâ€™s going to snow TWELVE INCHES overnight. I am, to say the least, terrified. And praying that Iâ€™ll be able to get back homeâ€¦ Iâ€™ve only seen snow like this once before, and the entire city of Pittsburgh ran out of salt and then shut down for days. Iâ€™m hoping Connecticut and Rhode Island are pros at handling a blizzard of such proportions!
