Sounds like you love the whole menu.

One might think that, but there’s a lot I haven’t even tried.

I only noted what I’ve had and liked.

Never had the previously mentioned buttermilk chicken, but it got a great review above.

And, still have to try the subs.

I like having a little place like that, not far from home, that has good prepared food in case I have nothing made for dinner, and not at prices as high as Wegman’s.

As CS stated, it is a gem.

Looks like Friday. ^^^

Never had that, but love their stuffed egg rolls, city chicken, stuffed chicken breasts, Asian marinated pork chops, fried fish, manicotti, oh, and dips…they have Buffalo chicken, taco, and spinach artichoke in alum foil containers, so you can pop in the oven. Great meatballs, too.

 

Yep, it was Friday. And best of all, the buttermilk chicken was boneless. I got to eat every morsel. It might very well have been the most tender and delicious chicken I've ever eaten. And I've eaten a good size flock over my lifetime. And we haven't even talked about the prices. A huge sub that took me two days to eat, two pieces of amazing buttermilk chicken and a soda..about 15 bucks. We must have a law passed that forbids this place from ever closing.

Me too! And the best part is I don't have to walk a million miles to get in the door!

That too! 

One thing I don't care for is the damned traffic over the bridge. 

I saw it last time I was there, and decided to backtrack down Front St. 

It was totally filling the bridge, and beyond to the light by McGirk's, by about 3-4 cars.

The traffic is definitely a drawback. I don't know who the geniuses were that planned that multi-dimensional psychedelic collision of on and off ramps, twists and turns and stoplights, but I hope they're not doing any more planning.

I wouldn't bet on that. 

Since then, we've been subjected to the double on ramps and roundabouts.

I've been stuck on that bridge before through at least 3 light cycles.

I went to Sam's today.  The shelves are starting to look depleted.  Brawny paper towels are 1 to a customer.  Very little paper supplies along the back row.

Name brands are there but very little Member's Mark stuff.

Prices have gone up.

Things are going south again.

I know I said I was done with CVS but a few days ago I was having work done on my car at Monroe on Front so I walked over to kill some time. I bought a tube of hand cream and they gave me a 35% off any item coupon. So I go to use the coupon today and guess what?

Instead of just checking the expiration date now you have to check to see when you can actually use the coupon...I didn't even notice, the cashier did, the coupon wasn't good until October 3rd. She was nice and let me use it anyway...

So not worth the trouble. They just insist on playing their games...whatever.

I went today.  Paper products in the back row was all stocked up.  The pallets were 2 and 3 deep.

Just an FYI.

I've given up on CVS.

I find Walgreens online to be so much better...over $35 ships free, and I almost always find sales on what I want, or they offer an online coupon, plus bonus bucks that come fast.

Every time I buy something at CVS, the coupons that print out are for feminine items.  That makes no sense.

So I have a wedding shower to go to today. I took the weekend off and went shopping last night because I wanted something new to wear. I started at Boscovs hoping to save time...they used to carry regular suit sets, not a one. I couldn't find a skirt or a blazer. Then I went to JC Penney's thinking I could get my favorite Worthington wool blend separates...not a blazer nor a skirt in the entire store and the dresses were not even close to my style at all. I skipped Burlington because all of their clothing always looks like it was worn by somebody else.

I went to TJ Maxx, Kohls...no luck...Kohls had one skirt...no blazers.

Back tracked to Burlington and found 3 skirts I liked, purchased all 3. I did not find a blazer or sweater.

The state of shopping here is abysmal...I would have went to the Salvation Army but they were closed by the time I got out the door.

The styles that are out this year are disgusting...and cheap. 

BTW thanks to Burlington for staying open until 11pm on a Saturday night...really helpful.

My love affair with Red and White continues...damn, why didn't I get the rice pudding again?

I went there thinking I might get that buttermilk chicken but it wasn't being served...they had battered fish. If you are squeamish about your fish actually tasting like fish...no worries...this was really mild. They make a sweet dill tartar, I had a lemon at home...with a side of their greek pasta salad and now damn...I'm wishing I bought the rice pudding. 

Two large pieces were $11.00 and change.

I also bought a package of SERIOUSLY nice looking thin sliced ribeyes..for sandwiches with those Roma Rolls.

Have a good weekend everyone.  :)

I went to JC L&W a couple weeks ago, and decided to walk over to Wegman’s to pick up a few things.

Was aware construction was coming up, but didn’t expect to have to walk all the down to the east side entrance, PAST a sign that said construction would begin on 8/23.

Then walk inside the foyer to the west side entrance.

Then back to the east side of the store.

Really poor planning, and my back was killing by the time I finally got back to my car.

BTW, someone just told me that this work hasn't even started yet at Wegman's...can anyone confirm that? 

I haven't been back since late Aug.

I haven't been back myself. A few days ago, I found myself in Walmart in Cobleskill...completely pleasant shopping..everything was stocked, people aren't hoarding, the prices seemed less expensive than here and the parking was a dream..only 2 handicapped spots in front per row...easy in and easy out. 

I've been getting my hair and nails done in Oneonta too..it's just faster...and it breaks up my trip home a bit. I love my new stylist..she's around my age and knows exactly how I want my hair. She's fabulous herself! :)

I don't suppose anyone knows where I can get sauteed chicken and garlic spaghetti like Nikko's used to make?

I was totally craving that this morning...checked out Pantheon in Harpersville and Spot restaurant but it isn't on their menus.
