Salami, mustard, and lettuce on a garlic pesto wrap. This is my lunch for a whole week, and then I will switch it up the following week to a chicken salad or turkey. I have to admit, I am doing this more for the frugal part and not necessarily the green part, but if I am being green too, well then good for me and good for the earth. I use the same cooler, icepack, and have recently switched to recycled aluminum foil to package the wrap I make. If …

The kids piled out of the car and we walked less than a block to the
shadow of the Fuller Warren Bridge.
Putting the market under the bridge was a real stroke of genius.

My first complaint would be that one thing Jacksonville does lack is a true brick oven pizza place. A visit to Patsy’s, John’s or Grimaldi’s in NYC would be enough to turn anyone into a pizza snob.
