If you like spring rolls and chopped salads, this is for you.
NorthStar Cafe, with three locations, is a favorite Columbus spot. At breakfast, their ham and cheese scone is amazing, as are their sweet potato hash, and their prosciutto and poached eggs on rosemary focaccia. Later in the day, their great salads, peanut slaw or Sweet Basil Burrito might call to me. Customers flock there every Earth Day, when they offer their excellent veggie burger for free.
I have many projects on my agenda as a new retiree by layoff. Go to Kentucky for our traditional Christmas in January: check. Pack up Christmas decorations: check. Host a lively discussion with the Best Book Group Ever: check (Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain, really good). Help pack up the life of my best friend for 30 years in three suitcases and a backpack and send her off to Australia to be deliriously happy: check (sniff). And relaunch my long-neglected food blog, which thanks to Maria Averion, has a pretty, fresh and professional redesign on my own domain: Check (yay).
