Comment of the Day!


After reading your review of Hogan's the other day, I decided to give them a try.  Wow, you did not lie.  What a great sandwich. We saw a couple eating salads, and that sure looks like an good option, too!  Four of us went, and two of us could not finish our food. Really good sandwiches, really great prices, and so many choices!  We started making plans to go there again before we had even left the place.  Thanks, Mike!

Happy Monday!


GLOBmaster2017GOOD morning GLOB and happy National Parfait Day!  Did you know French style parfait is served on decorated plates instead of tall, thin glassware. Well what about the fact that The oldest recipe with the name parfait comes from a French cookbook dated 1869.  Tell the GLOB Master your favorite Ice Cream Shop and I can meet you there and we can share a Parfait today!

Meatless Monday: Designer Greens

I was having a problem with my decision making so I was relieved there were "Chef Designed" salads to choose from – 9 to be exact, including the Waldorf, Bruschetta, and my choice, the Mexicali Salad. - READ MORE

Thanksgiving vegan alternatives

Thanksgiving has never been the vegan-friendliest celebration but a little bit of ingenuity can not only make every mouth happy at dinner but also lighten up the meal to leave plenty of room for seconds or dessert (and then seconds of dessert). - READ MORE

Make ahead, travel well Thanksgiving entrees

Much any of our Thanksgiving pies can be made a minimum of two days in advance, refrigerated, and then re-crisped for 30 minutes in a warm oven.  - READ MORE




ABOUT THAT SUPERFOOD YOUR BUYING - Though the term superfood is now commonly used, its legal definition remains woolly. Under European Union regulations, any product labelled as such must explain what the supposed health benefits are. America has no such rules.




MEATLESS MONDAY FACTOID:  According to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Americans consume 60% more meat than Europeans, and the rest of the world isn’t too far behind.



If you're still hungry and need a good lunch idea FOLLOW THIS LINK to Gainesville's Lunch Out Blog Instagram page.  This is where the GLOB's Image Editor Erica Corbett takes great pleasure in sharing amazingly looking, deliciously yummy images of what we are thinking about, contemplating seriously, and eventually eating for lunch in the Urban GLOB.

Have a simply marvelous Monday lunch GLOBer and I will see ya right here for the last Daily GLOB of November tomorrow morning!
