Good food is a joy, and I mourn for your loss.

thanks but not necessary. we are content.


If I was more like you, I probably wouldn't be overweight, lol.

We know we're getting old and times are changing but we can't seem to get really quality food at restaurants.


Other than my DW's severe (and many) food allergies, 'home cooking' was the main reason for us owning a MH (two of them actually) in the first place.

It doesn't even have to be anything fancy either, I'm just fine with a fried ham steak, some 'taters and veggies.

There was some video that wet viral recently, shot by a kitchen worker at Panera, showing how they 'made' their famous Mac 'n' Cheese.

Take bagged frozen single serving from freezer and drop in pot of boiling water, remove bag from water, cut bag open, pour into bowl, serve to customer. $7.95 .......

Employee's next post was that they'd been fired for posting video .....

Not to many places lately where we've said we just had to go back.
Never order fish in a steakhouse and never order steaks in a seafood place.
Ask what their specialty is.
Last place we tried was good, they served the usual. On the way out we find out the owner/cook is Greek and that's what he excels at. Next time for sure.

One thing I can not understand is why they can not serve a sandwich without so much of some kind of sauce that you have sauce running down your arm? No matter how good the sauce I will not lick my elbow.

EZ solution for that. tell the order taker to hold the sauce or put the sauce on the side.

We stay away from chain restaurant food. Most chains publish their nutrition guide.
Sodium's off the chart. It's amazing that you can have 3/4 your daily allowance of sodium in a dish and it doesn't even taste salty.
Fat and calories are also off the charts at most chains.
In fact most food prepared in restaurants is fattening.
We cook our own as much as possible.

Many Mom & Pop restaurants in our area are supplied by Sysco so the meals are basically heat and eat.

If you want to find out what the heart-healthy low cholesterol warriors have done to french fries, go to Prince Edward Island. Best I've ever had, so I had to ask; what's the secret?

Well, of course they grow the potatoes there, but the secret is lard.

Unfortunately today in order to stay competitive, most chain restaurants serve some form of highly processed slop that is loaded with highly refined carbohydrates/proteins/fats (sugar, flour, soy, flavor enhancers, extenders, preservatives, unsaturated fats, etc.) to increase the shelf life and reduce the price of the raw food. (if you can still call it that)

Eat real food.
