Jason’s Deli

You can certainly find larger salad bars with more selection that the one at Jason’s Deli, but it would be hard to find one with fresher ingredients. We have been going to their location in Fayetteville since we discovered it tucked under the awning at Nelson’s Crossing. Just look for Eyemart on the corner of Joyce and College. You’ll find Jason’s Deli nearby.

Grocery shopping: Some Big Choices at Sam’s Club

On a whim, my wife and I recently decided to join Sam’s Club. A local department store with groceries, Sam’s is conveniently located close to our home. You can find it behind Neighborhood Market, a grocery store run by Wal-Mart. I think it a bit odd that Sam’s should be so close to another grocery store, especially since Sam’s is also affiliated with Wal-Mart. Granted, Sam’s is more than just a grocery store. But the placement next to Neighborhood Market still seems strange.

Owner’s Appreciation Weekend at Ozark Natural Foods

Although we live in Bella Vista, our work takes us into Fayetteville quite frequently.  So my wife and I decided to become members at Ozark Natural Foods.  Although there are plenty of natural foods stores in Northwest Arkansas, Ozark is the largest.  Every so often they have an Owner’s Appreciation weekend.  It’s a chance to get some nice discounts, sample foods and interact with other members.

Grilling vegetables: A Macho Man's Delight

When the summer sun is setting in the western sky, and the warmth of the day is fading into night, we like to fire up the grill on the back patio. My wife may cook up some form of charred flesh, but often she joins me in eating veggie hot dogs and hamburgers. They’ve come a long way from their tasteless beginnings. As you can see from the recipes below, there are endless ways to grill vegetables to round out your meal. You can even grill fruit.
