Wheels and Deals

So AAA came, and told me I needed to get new tires. I absolutely adore Melrose Tires and Hubcaps; if you watch the video on their site you’ll see why. They’re fast, affordable, family-owned and friendly. I was there for less than 10 minutes, they cut me an excellent deal, and even offered a slice of watermelon!


None taken, though – was still feeling my seven plates from Book Club, plus I had a Groupon Now massage scheduled at Sogang.



More discounts followed, thanks to Scoutmob and California Vegan!


Picked up a Yellow Curry special for Abe…

…bulked up with some fresh green beans from the Larchmont Farmer’s Market


…trimmed, steamed in the microwave for 2.5 minutes with a few splashes of water…


…shredded carrots, S + P…


…a few dashes of Melinda’s Hot Sauce (<—good stuff)


All together, with the peanut dressing that came with takeout:


After a ride in my purse, this guy was barely recognizable.

    LOVE Melrose Tires!
    Found them on Yelp back in January and wrote my very first review because they were so awesome. Glad it worked out for you!
