From under a beer truck to health food ...

While we're buried under the massive project of getting our house ready to sell, we did take 90 minutes to go eat in a wonderful HEALTHY new restaurant, The Golden Chalice, in Chanhassen, MN.

Do you remember in the news last October, the woman who was crushed by a beer truck? No one could see her Subaru beneath the truck, so she tapped out 'shave-and-a-haircut' on her horn?' Then the EMT's realized her horn wasn't an electrical problem, but a human trapped under the truck.

That's our friend, the author Debbie Johnson.

She survived the beer truck accident (after weeks in the hospital) and we want to help her survive her restaurant venture.

If you like healthy food--or are just a plum foodie--please go eat there this week. And if you know anyone with food allergies, diabetes, or celiac disease, Debbie's food is all good stuff, low-glycemic, gluten- and sugar-free.

It's amazing she can make it all so delicious, yet so healthful.

Dave and I had the hummus platter, then he had a ginger stir fry while I had a cashew-curry dish. Awesome! I had to take my dessert home, a "tart" tart (they also offer a "sweet" tart and many other desserts.)

Everything was delicious--and I also noticed that the food really imparted a feeling of life to me that I rarely get with restaurant food.

The atmosphere is just lovely too. Soft music and lighting...(but brighter lighting in the Gallery area of the business.) Here's a link to their web site with directions, lunch and dinner menus, the phone number, hours and more:

Please go this week. Yum!!!

Postscript: Debbie met the love of her life and has moved to be with him!
