Strapping on the feedbag.

Under No Management: We've had a a few local restaurants close down. The first was the closest Jack In the Box which I was kind of shocked closed. I figured if it would close it would have been 2 years ago during all of the construction going on. It made it nearly impossible to get there, once that was done I figured it would be okay. Nope, it was all boarded up.

Next, one we lost was Lenny's Sub Shop. I didn't go there a whole lot, but I did like their version of the philly cheesesteak, as they had this really good spicy relish they put on it. This place actually lasted longer than I thought it would, because it was never busy there.

Finally, Andrea's Pizza closed. This one hurts the most. It was a local mom and pop place and when I did get a pizza it was usually theirs. They had such an awesome thick crust pizza that was just a little sweet. Definitely not the cardboard variety. It was really good pizza at a decent price. Plus, I hate to see little local shops like this close to the chains.

Christmas eating: A little Christmas info. Here is what my step-mom made for three people:
  1. a nearly 12lb turkey
  2. mashed potatoes
  3. stuffing
  4. gravy
  5. green beans
  6. carrots (did I mention this was for three people?)
  7. creamed peas
  8. 2(!) Jello Salads - which I don't usually eat. Nor did I this time.
  9. plus for dessert, also for three people. Cheesecake with strawberry sauce
  10. Bread Pudding
  11. Pumpkin Pie
There was so much food, my step mom bought some containers just for me to take leftovers home. Plus, I took a whole pumpkin pie.
