mmm-yoso!!! is the food blog. Cathy is blogging about food and some other stuff this Thanksgiving week.
Hi. Yes the third day in the car with The Mister, one small dog and one cat. We do this. Annually. You get to peek in and see what it is like, sort of. I would like to take this time to let everyone know that XM stereo radio is the most wonderful invention, ever.
One small note. yesterday (or the day before-it is all a blur), we had passed under the World's Largest McDonald's, which crosses over the Will Rogers Turnpike in Oklahoma. Usually we stop- as there is fuel sold on either side- but we did not need to this time. I'll post more on the way back. I know someone may have noticed... In the morning, we stopped at the Russell Stover/Whitman's Chocolates "Superstore"...the adversting has changed; it used to be an "outlet" and does sell some candies in a "scratch and dent/basic box style, as we,, as items in the fancy wrapped boxes for less than list price. My brother happens to crave the butter toffee almond sticks...and I had a few of the samples offered. They also sell Blue Bunny ice cream cream in the store- not that I wanted any; it was very windy and about 50 outside..ooohhh...cold (for us from California).... We ended up stopping at a Panera in Rolla, MO so I could post yesterday, and then driving on. Then, the outskirts of St. Louis and a Local Chain- Lion's Choice. A simple menu and simple decor. You can have the beef on your sandwich cooked to your liking if it is available (you know, they do run out of rare at some point in the day) although you would have to wait for 'well done', since most of the beef is rare to medium rare... and the meat on the sandwich is topped with a seasoning salt- but it is not too salty; in this case, we asked for it to be cooked as rare as possible...and the bread is toasted and buttered....in the photo, the top is the large, bottom is a small...there is au jus available (it is not at all salty) as well as horseradish sauce....it isthe most wonderful roast beef sandwich, ever. If you see a Lion's Choice, you should stop and partake.Oh, the small was $2.79 and large was $3.29 and that is a small fries. Then, seemingly soon, we were in Illinois...and this sign, which we always see off the side of the road...Foot High Pies. You can see the building used to be a Stuckey's. Most of the height is the merengue, of course. We got a slice of chocolate and one of banana- also available are coconut and lemon. $4 each slice and $14 for the whole pie... it is wonderful and so fresh. The restaurant makes great food...menu on wall in back...We will have to eat there next time.... Not much scenery for you, for now...It was a driving day... Gotta go shopping. Now. Bye!
