CULVER'S AND COOLER WEATHER

SWMBO and I visited one of Prescott Valley's newer restaurants today for lunch.  Culver's, which is part of a chain of fast food restaurants which originated in Wisconsin, just opened Monday.  I had read on their website that the place should be avoided at lunchtime as it is very crowded.  We went at about 2 o'clock and it was still jammed.  But we got in, waited in line for maybe 10 minutes, placed our orders and had our sandwiches delivered to our table in a prompt and reasonable manner.  It is obvious the employees are trying very hard to please and we were pleased with their service and our food.  SWMBO was surprised to find a pork tenderloin sandwich on the menu.  It was something she remembered from her teen years in Indiana.  The big chunk of meat stuck out from all sides of the bun, just as it did at Northwood, a place that one had to go to for the purpose of seeing just who was dating who, as well as the food.  She said today's sandwich compared favorably with those of her youth.  I had a simple Bacon Deluxe Butterburger.  I don't think either of us will need dinner (or as they say in Wisconsin, supper) tonight.

It's turned a teensy bit cooler today and the skies have been overcast all day.  It "looks like rain" and the forecast calls for a 50 percent chance of it tomorrow.  Of course as I have learned over the years, that also means a 50 percent chance it won't rain.  But then there's that changing weather pattern as a result of Global Warming . . .


Just a little tease for tomorrow's Friday Funnies!

  1. I don't think you can have lived in Indiana and not be in love with a tenderloin sandwich. The favorite of course was the breaded tenderloin and they are delicious, but a few places would offer a grilled tenderloin. That was my favorite and I think the best was at the old Indianapolis Press Club, when they were still atop the ISTA building.

  2. It seems the Prescott tri-city area is getting better restaurants. Culver's sounds like it is worth a try.

  3. It's quite refreshing to see a fast-food restaurant that understands the appeal of simple service at the table. Culvers is my fast-food restaurant of choice.

  6. Sounds tasty. Our weather here has been up and down more this winter than a yoyo. It's supposed to be in the 70's today, then drop in to the 30's Sunday night with a chance of snow. Climate change certainly is interesting!

  7. Ooh I LOVE Culver's! But I go there for the ice cream (custard), not the food :)
