Lots of Hard Work at Stewart Garden

download1The Stewart Garden is situated on the grounds of Stewart Middle School in Tacoma. At first I thought it was a community garden, but now that I have read their blog, it is clear that it is a student researched, designed, created and maintained garden. The blog shows just how meaningful this is to the students.

Pita Pit, for potentially healthy meals



Somehow it got to be 8 pm and dear daughter and I had missed dinner. She wanted to go to Jack in the Box, but I talked her into Pita Pit at 212 Garfield Street near Pacific Lutheran University. In retrospect, we should have shared a pita because they are pretty big. But we didn’t. I had one with turkey and ham (lettuce, spinach, sprouts, mushrooms, red onion and some kind of garlic sauce) and the kid had a breakfast one with eggs, potatoes and cheese). Both were good. This Pita Pit is open until 10 most nights (midnight Friday and Saturday), which is great for the PLU students. They also deliver locally.

While Pita Pit is a relatively small chain, compared to Jack in the Box, it looks like they have locations in the vast majority of the states, with approximately 24 locations in Washington State.
