    Faye- it wasn't a food problem (we actually really liked the taste of the meal) but more of a management problem. We ended up going on a day when they were doing fire alarm testing a lunch. It was mid-week and we were the only ones there. The alarm (which was deafening!) went on for at least 15-20 minutes. We finally had to go outside to escape the pain of it all to wait it ut. We had only got to eat one or two bites of our food before it went off, and by the time we got back in it was all cold, etc. We asked for them to take off the charges, as we just wanted to leave, and they refused... would only take off one glass of wine. Needless to say, we left the food that we paid for and went home... and had a headache the rest of the day. Crazy customer service... :-(

    RaleighFoodBlogger - Yikes! We all enjoyed our meals last night. That is is second time we have eaten there and both times we were all pleased. Sounds like they have made some changes.

    I love that HT as well. My dad lives near there so whenever we visit him, we head to that HT.

    Tonight we had fried chicken, pasta and (for everyone who has been following the pear overload we had recently - you'll love this) - PEARS! My dad gave us a box of Harry & David pears last night. We just finished the last box from a friend so this was great timing. Good thing we love pears! And boy they taste so much better than just about any pear I have ever eaten.

    Faye- I'm so glad to hear that Yoho is better... I had a horrible experience there a few years ago, and haven't gone back. But love that HT (we used to live close to there)... great cheese counter :-)

    Faye, sounds like a wonderful night out with your Dad! :)

    Last night was spaghetti sauce from the freezer with ziti and leftover garlic toast. No clue what we're having tonight, but as usual, it will be something from the freezer/pantry.

    Making taco soup with hamburger and beans on sale this week at HT. May make Jiffy corn muffins also on sale.

    My Dad took us all out for dinner at YoHo Asian Bistro tonight! Great meal, great company and no cooking or cleanup! Thanks Dad! After a little shopping (there's an HT in the same shopping center as the restaurant) we had a little Cold Stone using a gift card we received as a gift. :-)
