Food photos from our recent trip to Montpellier

One of the pleasures of traveling, for me at least, is to eat foods I normally wouldn't eat at home. Since we had an apartment for this recent trip to Montpellier, this included some meals we prepared on our own, as well as some French fast food we brought back to our apartment to enjoy.… Continue reading Food photos from our recent trip to Montpellier

A tasty first order with GrubHub at Caveman Burgers in Phoenix

Last weekend I tried GrubHub for the first time. I thought I'd share some initial impressions. You may wonder why a guy like me who literally never has food delivered to his home would go through the trouble of installing the GrubHub app on his phone, creating an account, and so on.

However, after four months, I've decided to go ahead and post it anyway. It was Sunday, Kathryn and I had just left church, we were hungry, and we hadn't had… Continue reading Just a picture of two Sonoran hot dogs from El Güero Canelo, Phoenix

Hockey and Popeyes, recent news items out of Montpellier

Hockey in Montpellier

Montpellier, France, is still one of my favorite places in the world, so I try to keep up with the local media there. I thought I'd share a couple recent news items that caught my attention today. First, our second favorite hockey team, the Montpellier Vipers, finished the regular season with an 8-0 home win… Continue reading Hockey and Popeyes, recent news items out of Montpellier
