We went to a little diner in Virginia Beach for lunch today and it was so good. I got a grilled chicken caesar wrap with a side of fried green tomatoes. Ate half of the meal and finished the other half tonight, after having had dessert first - a cup of Ice Dream from CFA. :thumbsup

Tried something different this evening. I actually cooked something. I went out to get some milk and saw this bag of navy beans. So I got home and started boiling the beans around 5:30PM. Slow boil til 6:30. Then threw in 1/2 a can of Spam. So ended up with a 4 quart pot of bean soup.

I know Spam is not Ham. And I didn't put in any onions. But it was still a nice change from chicken and mashed potatoes.

My mom used to fry slices of Spam and put pineapple rings on top. :nod

Imperfect but forgiven
My grandmothers & mom would boil that little baggie of "extras" included in the turkey (that awful offal :biggrin ), chop it up and add it to the Thanksgiving gravy.

It's actually pretty good in there.

Back when I used to cook turkeys for Thanksgiving... until I found out I was the only one at the table who liked it while everybody else was preferring chicken... I'd boil the awful offal and then chop it up and add it to the stuffing that would go inside the turkey. It's got to add a lot of tasty and substance to the gravy, too...

We're in Williamsburg today. Had lunch at this neat little place called Old Chickhominy House - and we both had soup (I got chicken & rice and John had Brunswick stew) which came with flat biscuits (delicious!), and sweet iced tea. Then we spent the afternoon visiting Jamestown Settlement.

Tonight we were still full from lunch & afternoon snacks so went to Panera and split a 'You Pick Two' - John had the Fuji apple salad with a bagel and I had half a Mediterranean veggie sandwich and got one of their iced pumpkin cookies to eat over the next couple days.

We used to go to Williamsburg 2-3 times a year, love it there. But got tired of the 4 hour drive each way.
