If your home was a restaurant how would you name it?

I would name it Park Drive Grill simply because I live on a street by that name and the name actually sounds like a legit restaurant.

How would you name your's?

Many moons ago, Buck and I both got degrees in restaurant management in anticipation of opening an inn/restaurant. We were negotiating a site, which was a beautiful stone home built in the late 1700s. One part still had the hard-packed dirt floor that was shiny from the many feet that had walked on it. The whole house was filled to the rafters with history. There was even a fantastic little walled cemetery on the property. Lots of acres covered with huge trees and the biggest boxwoods we'd ever seen. It was between Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD near a major roadway. The only way to get to the house from the main road was down a long winding narrow road. The home was called Greenwood and we had decided to call our place "The Grail at Greenwood."

Lots of unexpected/awful things happened, causing us to abandon our "Grail." I wonder if it's still there. All these years later, I can still see it and smell the boxwoods.

The Gravy Boat!

I don't eat gravy nearly as often as I would like, but if it has gravy (or sauce) I probably love it (beef stew, pot roast with roasted potatoes and gravy, turkey dinner with mashed potatoes, dressing, and gravy, porcupine meatballs with mashed potatoes and sauce, chop suey over rice, etc.).

Of course, I would have to find a way to get some good Mexican food on the menu too!

Well, good timing for this question.....I've been dithering over baking to commision but delivered a paid or cake to someone I didn't know for the first time this week! I painted the box and chose a name (for if this goes furher and I need a business account).

Say hello to the proud owner of the possible business! 'Replete' (no one leaves my table any other way!)
