We feel privileged here, what started out as a small food cart serving bbq pulled pork with a few sides is now a tiny restaurant. They have an all you can eat buffet, with sides and desserts, for $8.50. DH and I can't eat all you can eat, but it looks luscious. We just get a sandwich for $5.

I created a chicken "something" with herbs and red wine. Turned out really, really good and the sauce was perfect over couscous, then we had buttered baby lima beans, tossed salad with chunks of fresh mozzarella, washed it all down with iced tea. Apple-cream cheese bundt cake for dessert.

What movie are you going to see, Chopper? I go to the movie theater often here, always in the afternoon, and the tickets are $6.25 for seniors. My Lunch Bunch friends and I saw "Hope Springs" last week. We all had mixed reviews on it.

Steve and I had a hankering for breakfast for dinner....I love that now and then.

Sounds great Whisk

Broiled 2", 20 ounce prime boneless beef rib steak, 3 slices hearty white bread, 6 ounces creamed spinach. Looking forward to 4 ounces of Scottish smoked salmon for breakfast.

Yep, it is quite expensive these days...

On a Tuesday every week you can get to see a film at a discount price...3D films for $14.00 instead of $20.00 which is great and obviously a bit cheaper for 2D films, but the prices of the chips, lollies and popcorn etc are ridiculous!
