Did you hear about the restaurant on the moon? Great food, but no atmosphere.

Dinner 29 Nov 2013. Reheated sweet potatoes from Corvallis. Chile: mighty fine.
Lunch 29 Nov 2013. Staying healthy. More fruit salad and left over vegetables. Made up some Green Goddess dressing with buttermilk. Good idea.
Black Friday Breakfast 29 Nov 2013. The fruit salad is plentiful! Also, fried eggs over, refried potatoes, and baguette toast. Ready for a day of not shopping.
P.D.Q. Instant Egg Nog - just add booze!
Time for egg nog—makes a gallon!
Another lonely Thanksgiving.
Doing business with Jesus. Who needs a contract when you can just shake hands with The Man?
Kitchen curiosities. Nifty “space age” styling on the range…but…plug in electric sockets inches way from a burner? And what is this center thing that has settings for Simmer, Fry, Make, and Grill? do you really want to be deep fat frying something next to everything else? Isn’t that rather shallow?
As for the glass faced ovens, who gets to clean them? I guess they think that their turkey won’t splatter. Hmmm.
Burger King archeology. There actually was a time when they didn’t have drive thrus! I first encountered BK c. 1964 when I was stationed at Key West for several months. We used to go snorkeling up the Keys on the weekends, and then drive back. BK, then a Florida chain, was the first place you saw coming into town.They just had the Whopper then, and I could eat two easily, The gimmick was they had a little “broiler” with a conveyor belt, so each patty was cooked when ordered.
