But it was like chicken fried steak - a flat piece of chicken (no bones) fried and covered with white gravy. They had Blue Bell ice cream, but I didn't get any.

We left about 1255. and we got to our daughter's about 1348. She was on the phone looking out front for us, and we came in to the back. So she was surprised when Bob knocked on the back door

My mom's sewing machine had been given to our daughter, and they had taken the sewing machine out to refinish the cabinet. Bob and our son-in-law put the sewing machine together,

and then our daughter and SIL went shopping for material for curtains while we watched the kids.

Our son-in-law's dad took us all out to dinner for our son-in-law's mom's birthday at an Italian place call Buca di Beppo.

He likes this place because the decor is somewhat raunchy. There are pictures of men in speedos who basically overflow the fabric as if he was pregnant, and one of a kangaroo's balls.

It was family style where you order a dish and everyone helps themselves. A favorites is Apple Gorgonzola Salad
Tart Granny Smith apples, spiced walnuts, dried cranberries and Gorgonzola cheese are tossed with fresh Romaine lettuce and our Italian vinaigrette.
We ordered Lasagna- Nine towering layers of lasagna noodles stuffed with our homemade meat sauce and a savory combination of ricotta, mozzarella, provolone and Romano cheeses
and Spaghetti Meatballs. Imported Italian spaghetti with our famous half-pound mouth-watering meatballs smothered in our homemade marinara sauce. The meat balls are huge. We had enough to eat so that we packed some of it up to take home.

One of the interesting things about this restaurant was the decor of the Ladies room. I can only imagine what is in the men's room but the ladies room has framed ladies undergarments decorating the walls.
