Local Cafe Now Serving Bone Broth

free range grass fed bone broth

There are many delicious ways to improve your health, and a great place to start, believe it or not, is with good ole fashioned bone broth. For thousands of years bone broths have provided essential minerals and nutrients to our ancestors worldwide, and they are still part of every known culinary tradition on earth. Bone broth is a flavorful liquid made by boiling the bones of just about any vertebrate you can think of, typically poultry, beef, venison, bison, lamb, or fish, in water for an extended period of time, typically anywhere from 6 to 72 hours depending upon the bones used.

IMG_6081

my love asked me to bring her a peppermint mocha from starbucks on my way home today. yes, the fika girl even goes to starbucks every now & then. as i was driving, i started thinking about what i would be "giving" today for my 40 days of giving. pretty soon, i had settled on the idea of possibly paying extra so that the person behind would get a free coffee. but, i had to wait to scope out the starbucks situation when i got there.

Day 39: i love marshall.

north of asheville, about 20 minutes or so, lies a small, riverside town. it's a place that seems to be stuck in the past, and yet, not at the same time. the only thing around for miles is this little, two stop light main street and a crossing street, which is actually only a bridge across the river. a big, white courthouse looms over main street. the sheriff's department is just across the street from that. there are a few churches, a few general stores, a dentist's office, a real estate office, a couple of different restaurants, and smack in the middle of it all... a coffeehouse called zuma.

Day 36: F I L O

there is a little rock and stone building on a busy street in east asheville. i've passed it numerous times knowing that i would go in at some point for fika. but to be honest, i wasn't too excited about it every time i passed it, hence it's on day 36 that i finally darkened the doors. though i was totally intrigued by the rock/stone outside. i mean, seriously, how cool is the outside? still, it's east asheville. and though i live in central-east asheville myself, there are not that many funky, cool places over here. or not that i know of yet. the coolness is left for central and west asheville.
