Selections include the Grille's signature items, including the eatery's legendary lobster rolls, New Orleans Chicken Gumbo, Maryland Lump Crab Cakes, falafel, quesadillas (cheese, chicken, veggie, pulled pork), Five Cheese Mac & Cheese, Swedish meatballs, and a wide variety of quiches (cheese, spinach, broccoli, ham & cheese or crab meat).

Go Take a Walk

Friday, March 30 was Take a Walk in the Park Day, so I did.  I really didn't have an excuse to not do so; the sun was shining, I had the day off, and I had no plans for the rest of the day.  So after a session with Abbe, my trainer at LifeTime Fitness, I made the short trip to Lake Surprise in Watchung Reservation. 

As I made my way around the lake, it was easy to see how ...
