July 2007 Roundup

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Columbus, Monthly Roundup

A couple of months late and a dollar short, but here’s July’s roundup. I wanted to get this posted before I left for vacation, but you know what they say about good intentions. I’m working on August right now, but it may be a while. My RSS reader piled up with new entries while I was gone, and I have 6,000+ posts to read. I’ll try my best to motor through it in the next few days, though.

Anyone going to Taste the Future on Tuesday? Just curious…

Any Columbus locals interested in getting together for a foodie meet-up at one of the local restaurants? Leave a comment if you’re interested, and then maybe we can all get together on a time/date.

    welcome back! And thanks for the recipe links; only skimmed thus far, but found a couple of real promising one–

    Alan, also back–from a month in Japan, and just restocking shelves after three days home, whirlwind visits to Coop, Patel Brothers, the Japanese store at Kenny Centre that’s changed it’s name/management since we were last there, Kroger; baked whole spelt bread, made a Thai Green Chili Tofu curry over mixed brown and red rice, after pasta last night. Lots of comfort vegan food after the month svoiding fish in Japan!
