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:
- a nearly 12lb turkey
- mashed potatoes
- green beans
- carrots (did I mention this was for three people?)
- creamed peas
- 2(!) Jello Salads - which I don't usually eat. Nor did I this time.
- plus for dessert, also for three people. Cheesecake with strawberry sauce
- Bread Pudding
- Pumpkin Pie
