I was just in Cape Girardeau over Father’s day. We visited our son who lives there. His wife works at the university.
We ate at the Bella Italia which I thought was very good and a surprise to find in a small community smack dab in the middle of the USA. I had their lasagna and it was some of the best I have had in a long time.
We also went to Lambert’s for some “throwed rolls” and “pass arounds” while visiting.
Our son fixed bison strip steaks for FD dinner which was very good and a low fat red meat which fit into our WeightWatchers plan. After the cheese laden lasagna I need a lower fat entrée.
We stayed at the Drury Suites which was next to the White Castle but we avoided the belly bombs although they did smell good as the aroma hit us every time we entered or exited our hotel.
From Cape Girardeau we headed to Tunica where we tried Paula Deen’s new place at Harrah’s. It was not a good choice for those who have just begun the WeightWatchers program. We were pretty good about our food choices over the trip and I lost one pound while on vacation and my wife remained at the same weight with no gain or loss.
