RE: Louisville Dining
Ate at mesh again last night. Half price wine, so the missus and I split a Cab called Joshua. Not a big wine fan, but this is about as good a glass as I've ever had. Didn't have that oaky afterbirth taste to it (yes, this is a pop culture reference).

I went with the mesh salad and tried and true Amish Chicken. Chicken was great once again; thought the mesh salad was a bit on the bland side. Probably should have followed DHC and ordered the brussel sprout salad. She had the cheese tray and fries (not joking). Said the Kentucky Rose cheese was very good.

Still disappointed they haven't brought the honey and blackberry crostini to the Louisville location. That stuff is amazing.

I'm not sure how I feel about this thread

Like, if I didn't already like you guys, and this was the first thread I read after finding the site ... I would have bounced in a heartbeat. You know what I ate for dinner last night? A fucking peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and it was amazing. Pair that with some Honey BBQ Fritos, a Big Red, and a few Reese cups left over from easter, and that's a 5 star dinner.

LOL, I think I mentioned several pages back if anybody wanted to trade ideas on sprucing up hamburger helper I'd be in the corner.

PB&J is OK (save the sugar content in the jelly) as long as you're putting it on wheat bread. The Fritos/Big Red combo is where we're heading down a sub-optimal path for GI & cardiac health.

RE: Louisville Dining
I'm just easy when it comes to food. I'll pretty much eat whatever you put in front of me. The only gripe I have with my diet is that it's unhealthy more often than not. I float around 180 lbs, but would like to lose about 10 of em'. I'm no beacon of health, but I can move pretty well and my resting heartrate is 50 bpm.

RE: Louisville Dining
not a big chips guy, they're fine but just not worth the calories to me. I'd rather eat bowls of fruit or a dessert.

My issue was never eating unhealthy, it was eating an unhealthy amount of relatively healthful food for dinner. I've worked on eating smaller meals and timing snacks better so I don't get so hungry I end up eating a 1200-1500 calorie dinner. I've gone from 203 to 185 since New Year's Eve. Still pretty heavy for 5'7, but I naturally carry a lot of muscle in my lower body so I look more like 170.

A lot of the weight loss is owed to working out more intensely/frequently but the diet helped my metabolism a lot, which had steadily been tanking since around age 30 or so.

Thats my problem. I rarely snack. But when I eat I eat too much. And I eat too much fast food.

Taking the fam to Doc's Cantina Sat. The kids are going to Garth and we're babysitting the 3 little ones. Looks like a fun menu.

And I'm always in the mood for tequila.

We were over near there Tuesday (opening day). It was a touch early, but I was surprised the crowd wasn't big at all. If we didn't have our kids in tote, I would have lobbied to try it out.

Maybe it's just me, but another tex mex place around here just doesn't get me all that interested.

Tex Mex is great for crowds. We have 10 people, plus it's more affordable when I'm footing the bill.

Is that John Varanese's new place? We looked at the menu the night we ended up at mesh, but didn't even try to go since my wife is not a seafood fan and there weren't many other options.

Place was a zoo. Some good dishes, some not. Better than your everyday Mex but not Guac.

Slice of cheese and some miracle whip. Pure heaven. Cant decide whether I want pork and beans or mac and cheese to go along. May just go with both.
