They have an all day breakfast menu! Which some of my coworkers opted for.

As for me, I stuck with the lunch menu that happens after 11am.

Turkey Burger Basket [on an egg bun with grilled onions and mushrooms, fries & and drink] | around $11

You get to snazz up your burger however you like with a few bucks.

My fries are humongous because they actually forgot to put it on my plate. Else, it would be right next to my burger and rest assured, way less. To die for. I’ve never tried thin fries that I adore, and these were just perfect. Just the right amount of crispy on the outside and seasoned to perfection.

As for the burger … juicy. Yum. The onions and mushrooms I got added in there definitely made it that much better. I can’t say much for the lettuce. It tasted old and … disgusting so I kind of left it where it laid.

I got my drink of sweet tea [not pictured]. It didn’t taste good at all. Maybe I went on a bad day but the tea was no where near … sweet. It felt very watered down.

Homemade Chili [cup] | $3.59

I don’t know why I always feel the need to order chili if I can but I did!

I should of said no to the cheese and not to be greedy with the onions. They sure aren’t greedy with the meat though. You will find chunks of ground meat in there. It was really good and I just loved dunking my fries in there.

I really did love this place and I would definitely come back. I’m thinking of bringing the family here one day.

Hey sissy, if you read this … you can come here! They have veggie burgers!

Has anyone checked out PV.Body 30 Day Challenge for today?

Day 3 and it’s a recipe for Protein Pancakes. I didn’t make them but if you did, let me know how they turned out!

It’s finally the weekend! Hope you all have a great one!

12.02.11 – Read Quality of Life written by the EMBA before having to go into a conference thing with them. And made myself a pop-up bowl of popcorn.

I learned a lot at this conference. It made me feel a heck of a lot smarter too.

12.06.11 – These little devils come out of one of the food places on campus. They are the devil because they’re addicting. I’m going to stick to the cinnamon ones in the future though because the jalapeno ones are disgusting!

12.06.11 – As I was parking my car at my apartment complex, this kitty cat stuck his head out. So cute, I had to take a picture!

12.10.11 – Krispie Crème donuts Krispie Kreme donuts? Either way we got the Christmas flavors as well as regular glazed.

I did a close up shot of the snowman because it’s so cute!! Too sweet though.

12.11.11 – Jenny and I made crab rangoons by hand along with shrimp chips while Tammy studied hard for her finals. We ran out of oil and had to go and get more. Whoops.

They were a success though, but next time, we’ll know not to make that many.

12.12.11 – Tammy sent me a picture of Pluto while I was hard studying for my finals. Ain’t he a cutie? She was already done and had gone home for the break. I was super jealous since my finals haven’t even started!

12.12.11 – Tammy helped Jenny marinate the chicken drumsticks before she left so we had some of that and rice. Jenny snacked on some leftover crab rangoons as well. Delicious.

12.13.11 – I took Jenny to Just Brakes so she could fix her car. When we went to pick up her car and go back home, we were stopped at the light and I saw this lil dealio. I called Jenny and told her to look on the left of us. “Oo Yea”. Smile

12.14.11 – Finally tried out the Vegtarian Chili. Only thing you need to add is a can of beans and a can of tomatoes. I am not one to follow directions so I added some ground turkey, kidney beans, and black beans.

We also made some mashed potatoes. As you can see on the right I used a taco shell and put some mashed potatoes on the side of the walls of the taco and some chili in the middle.

So delicious! I am going to get this again!! With the mashed potatoes, it tasted like Shephard’s Pie!

12.15.11 – Had my first Annie’s Macaroni and Cheese. I’m not a fan of Macaroni and Cheese but it came out pretty good.

Note to self: Be patient when pouring out the water. There is water in the holes of the macaroni.

12.16.11 – My friend, Maira, and her dad and stepmum was having a Christmas Party and invited me. I went with Travis (my next door neighbor, brother bear, etc. and Maira’s boyfriend). They had DELECTABLE foods!

Queso, tortilla chips, quesadillas, tamales, taquitos. They had so many desserts as well. Yum! I obviously went for seconds. Bad idea?

On the very right I took out my feather during the party. It was bugging me so it had to go. Needless to say, I lost some hair in the process.

**************

I think we’re all caught up now. Whoo .. long.

I hope everyone’s having a good winter break for those of us that have it. For everyone else working, we love you. Smile
