    ascherer - your mom is so lucky to have you there to help but I am sure you are ready to get home to your hubby and cat for a bit! Those loaded baked potatoes sound really good right now.

    Raesmom - I agree with Faye. You need to tell the Manager about your experience otherwise they will not know that anything needs to be fixed.

    Last night was dinner out with my Aunt and Uncle at a local burger place (River City Cafe). The food was great and I needed something of a break. Tonight is salisbury steak with loaded baked potatoes and sugar snap peas. Dinner tomorrow will be at my Aunt's house if Momma is feeling up to it. It looks like I may come home on Wednesday. It will be nice to see my DH and kitty.

    raesmom1612 - Oh no! How frustrating!! I'm so sorry you had such a bad experience. You should definitely call back in the next couple days to speak with the manager about your less than positive experience. He/she would want to know about the missing toppings and unbagged wings and soda. I hope tonight is much better!

    Not sure yet about dinner tonight. Tomorrow night we are going out with my Dad to his favorite Asian bistro so I'll behaving sushi and salad with ginger dressing. Yum!

    Enjoy this beautiful day, everyone!

    (sorry pushed the wrong button and posted accidentally)
    So we get our pizza and no pepperoni....Had both kids with me and didn't notice no pepperoni until I got back to the truck......Had to pull them back out and go back in to get my pepperoni. As I'm walking back to the car, child in one hand, box of pizza and bag of wings on top of box in the other hand.....The wings fall to the ground!! Did they not have a plastic bag to put them in?? Then I realized I didn't grab the 2 liter (nor did they remind me or have it together with my order) so again I'm pulling kids out of the truck to go get the two liter. By the time we get home the pizza is barely warm. I take a bite......NOT the BEST new York pizza!!! DH even asked why I ordered from there and not dominos, and he doesn't really like dominos!!!! Being from new York I was not happy and can't wait to go home to get some real n.y. pizza!! Rant over :)

    No idea what's for dinner tonight....But I know it won't be pizza!!!

    Last night ended up being pizza but we strayed from our normal dominos because there was a local pizza shop that raved about being the "best new York pizza in NC". I heard from multiple ppl that this place was amazing and I needed to try it. So I phoned in an order for the "game day special" large cheese pizza, order of wings and a 2 liter soda for $19.99, add pepperoni for $2. Things looked promising as I arrived, the line of ppl was almost out the door!
