On the Subject of Italian Food

Krista brilliantly pointed out that I forgot Italian food in my poll. Big apologies, I'll figure out a way to make it right.

But speaking of Italian food, last night I discovered why Fazoli's has been closing down left and right.

I went to a neighboring town to scope out the shopping scene (not to you know, DO any actual shopping) and did find some delightful things like a Christian bookstore and an independent used bookstore. (which well, is sort of a post in itself) Yes, yes, I'm a bookworm, that's the kind of shopping that makes me happiest. Anyway...

I spotted a Fazoli's and thought I'd stop for dinner. The Fazoli's by me has closed down and I sort of relate Fazoli's in my mind to yummy breadsticks dripping with butter and garlic. YUMMY!

I should have clued in to the fact that there was no one else to be seen anywhere near the restaurant. But sometimes I can be a little slow. I happily ordered my lasagna. I sat down and five seconds later they brought it out. That should have been clue number two. I know, I know Fazoli's real Italian real fast, but that's a little too fast. They brought me two breadsticks and sadly, they were completely dry. No dripping butter and garlic. The lasagna was pretty gross, too. And then it happened. That lasagna hit my system in a not so kind way. And I realized, I didn't really care if I ever went back to Fazoli's.

By the way, I loved Chikezie last night, anyone else?

Amy, I know that this is a little off subject, but did you sign up for the blog book review of Andrew’s book. If you did, I hope that you get it. I like reading your book reviews.

I liked the C guy, but my favorite was David Hernandez.

Hi Thomas, no problem, I like off-topic, too!
The CFBA is touring the book as well so I signed up to do it with them. I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on it! Thanks for saying you like my reviews!

Mom, I liked David Hernandez, too, but all the girls were awful, don't you agree?
