June here you are already. So many things leading up to this month the gateway to summer. If you follow my instagram feed you know we were finally knocked out of our baseball bracket which essentially also derailed the take out train.
I really REALLY miss cooking, I said cooking not cleaning up after, that is the gigantic perk of take out in my mind. I have every intention of jumping right back into my apron but for now I found a GREAT stand in, Stonefire Grill. Stonefire is located in Irvine and was our featured restaurant during our last BlogCrush meet up.
Stonefire is unique, they keep it simple, tasty and offer healthy alternative dishes that taste GOURMET. Stonefire Grill wants you to come in and ENJOY a home cooked meal with your family but without the time spent in the kitchen. And let’s just put it out there, who really wants KP duty anyway? Not me.
Our group that evening had the pleasure of trying a variety of dishes that night. We started with Grilled Cheeseless Veggie Pizza with eggplant, zucchini, red onion, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and fresh oregano. One slice has 170 cal/2gm fat/4gm fiber/8gm protein. I’m sold. Its my new favorite splurge without the guilt.
Justin, our host for the evening walked us through several dishes feautured on their Healthy Alternatives Menu which you can download to get all the nutritional analysis. You might consider printing a copy so you can take advantage of their take out service. My favorites were the garlic mashed potatoes, Mesquite BBQ Tri Tip, Mediterranean Salad and the moist Carrot Cake. Everything fresh and very flavorful just as it should be. I’d also like to thank Mother Nature for the most beautiful lighting conditions.
