Munchy, good guesses. It's in Warwick, RI The hubs traveled for work a few weeks back AND ATE THERE WITHOUT ME. TWICE I told him we're taking a drive one day so I can try it too, he loved it.

There are totally parts of CT that are an hour and a half away inside the state. It's not thaaaat small. That's hilarious that you're going to RI for Chipotle though. You realize it's basically a one-step-up-from-fast-food kinda place, right?

Oh, I know - born and raised in CT, but I just figured because I hadn't heard that there was one in CT. As if I know all

Heh, I remember when their were whiffs of a Panera bread opening one town over from me when I lived up there. I don't think it ever happened, but everyone was riled up.

I think I could hit a tennis ball from one side of the state to the other. LOL

I know it's not like a sit-down fancy restaurant, but from what I've read about them I just like their ethics on what type of food they use and where it comes from. Plus, my hubby is uber picky pants and he loved it so I know it'll make for a nice 'let's go on a short day trip' kinda drive. Any excuse to get out and explore.

There are a few Panera Breads in CT - at least three worth driving to, and there was even an Atlanta Bread Company for a bit. We have Cosi's up the azz...

Rumor is Sonic is opening in Waterbury (I think that's the right town). Hello cherry limeaid and onion rings. I'm sure it will open AFTER we move next June.

ETA: I was so wrong, it's Wallingford. http://www.sonicofct.com/

Leftover tortilla soup. The kids will just eat the chips, but I. don't. care. Hubby is not coming home, and they don't eat what I make anyway, so why should I bother?

I loooooooove sandwich places like Panera. We have tons of Panera's in Missouri (since they started in St. Louis). There aren't any Cosi's in my neck of the woods, but I wish there were. I had some on a trip to Chicago and it was awesome.

We're having arroz con pollo tonight, made in the crockpot. I'm also having a glass of white wine.

I try to avoid Wallingford with their KKK rallys and all that jazz...and two very unfortunate people who I came across in college from there who were friendly with me until they found out I'm Black and not Hispanic like they thought.

Anyway, I had broccoli with fontina and tuna cakes.

I guess moving so much keeps me ignorant to what areas are worse than others (which is good because I get such a hot head when it comes to people being assanine to each other). If there are any rally's going on it should be a Sonic onion ring rally. Those really should bring world peace.

Tonight is some sort of soup. I want to enjoy these last few days of cool weather with as much soup as possible. I dislike summer.

Tonight it's leftovers and a salad, but last night I made this: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2...-cheese-sauce/

Because I can always use more carbs. It was divine.

Tonight will be a bowl of "chili" that I made last night with ground turkey, onions, mushrooms, garlic, red bell pepper, diced tomatoes with green chiles, black beans, corn, and cilantro.

Skate with charmoula served with bulgur pilaf with preserved lemon (finally using them after waiting two months for them to be done), ramps, golden raisins, mint, and almonds. Oh, and a salad of bitter spring greens with lemon vinaigrette.
I am hoping to make sfogliatelle ricci for dessert, don't know if I will get to them though.

Ended up being lemon drizzle cake for dessert, which I will slice up in a bit. Will make the sfogliatelle later on. Dinner turned out awesome! Skate is a favorite fish and I wish more people knew how tasty, easy to cook, and cheap it is!
