503 – Cauliflower Crust


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode we:

Had fun in the car
This week we visited Parkside 23 for date night. On the way, Ruth was pretty sure Chad threw a shaka symbol at a Methodist church.

Edie and Chad eating Tamago at Wasabi Sushi Lounge

Enjoyed sushi with friends
As a tradition of our family of friends, we visited Wasabi Sushi Lounge for all-you-can-eat sushi for Easter.

Started getting fit
It’s official: we’re back on the road to fitness. Ruth started walking, the treadmill arrived, and Chad started running. We also had a coaching session with a fitness trainer who suggested another style of eating for us.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust!

Made healthier choices
We were challenged to have a pizza with a cauliflower crust – in an effort to eat more plant-based foods. Chad was apprehensive, but in the end, he admitted to really liking it!

Connected with a friend
We had the opportunity to connect with our friend JJ in real time – on a phone call! It was balm for the soul.

311 – Dining on Mondays


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Made a Movie War list
We went through Netflix and watched trailers for old, bad movies. We now have a good list for Movie War and will offer some reviews in future episodes – because The Ice Pirates needs some internet love.

Wine and Small Plates at La Merenda

Found an open restaurant on Monday
Apparently restaurants being closed on Mondays is still a thing. We were going to head out and realized half our list of date night restaurants are closed on Mondays. But in good news, we found La Merenda was open and they were thrilled to see us!

Chad was in Minneapolis
And learned that one Mai Tai is plenty!

Ruth had a work event
It was the 29th Annual Christmas in the Ward on Friday, so wineza was a little late!

Thought about keeping in touch
Our friend Phil shared a graphic from Crustacean Singles about reaching out to others. Ruth admitted to still having a hard time reaching out while Chad is inspired.
