City Limits Diner, White Plains, NY

My companion and I were on our way for a nice road trip to hit a couple of cool places as the summer winds down. After a ride on the turnpike and over the George Washington Bridge, I had major heart palpitations. Luckily not long after that we arrived at City Limits Diner for some much needed coffee and breakfast.

As far as diners go, City Limits was hitting all the right points. They had the obligatory bakery counter in the front and large booths around the perimeter. We were seated at a cute little table and coffee and water arrived not long after we were seated.

There isn't too much to say about the menu other than it had the normal diner breakfast items. My companion got french toast which was made with raisin and currant challah bread and served with a vanilla bean apple sauce and of course maple syrup. The plate arrived with about 4 large triangles of french toast. The apple sauce was on the side, as was the syrup. My companion slathered the apple sauce on his toast and added a drizzle of syrup. He dug in and was pretty quiet, so I think he liked it :) The toast was big and the key is that they used good bread. I opted for the corned beef hash with poached eggs and hollandaise. My hash was presented in a skillet pan, which you know I thought was fun! :) The hash was perfect, it had those crisp edges, yet some of the potatoes were still soft, great textural differences in the dish. The hollandaise was not overly heavy and provided just enough tang to the dish. The meat was seasoned just right, with that salty flavor you want from a corned beef. The eggs were great too, you can't go wrong with a poached egg when you have a good hash. Cutting into that yolk and having it drip over the hash... so good.

The verdict on City Limits Diner? Good coffee and a nice breakfast selection. Comfortable seating and a nice break from NJ/NY traffic. All in all worth the stop. So if you find yourself on a road trip, give City  Limits a try. And get something from the bakery case, we didn't but it sure looked good.

"Paleo Burritos" AKA stuffed collard greens

I recently discovered another use for collard leaves, a replacement for our old friend known as tortillas or wraps. After removing the stems and taking a quick 3 to 5 minute bath in boiling water they are ready to go. They are more durable than lettuce and fold over a little easier after being boiled. I have used them to make a variety of lunchmeat and grilled chicken wraps recently and then I got to thinking, couldn't I make a burrito out of them? Once I assembled them, it reminded me more of stuffed cabbage than burritos, call it whatever you want, they were still yummy. So, I'll share the recipe with you.

This recipe should be considered a guide and you can change and swap any way you wish.

Approximately 4 collard leaves
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 yellow onion sliced thin
1 green bell pepper sliced thin
1 4 oz can green chiles
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
the following spices can be added to your taste (I don't measure)
chilli powder
cumin
garlic powder
salt
pepper

EAT MORE KALE

A while ago, I learned of a guy making t-shirts and stickers with the phrase Eat More Kale on them and I was like "wow, I love kale, I need those!". And upon going through the process of finding Robert Muller Moore's website www.eatmorekale.com I found out more about him and learned some shocking stuff that he is going through.

If you live in an area where the fast food chain, Chik-Fil-A exists you may be familiar with their slogan and signs (including a cow) that read, "Eat Mor Chikin". So, they have been fighting to keep Robert from using the phrase Eat More Kale as they believe it is too similar to their slogan.

I support the Eat More Kale website, I'm a fan on facebook and I try to follow the story as best I can. Recently, I saw another blogger share a post about this struggle, including the Letter of Protest (see end of this post for reference) that Chik-Fil-A submitted, as I began to read it, I became very annoyed. Chik-Fil-A claims that because they …
