So Alternate Plan B was to go to the pie place -- Shreiner's -- and I was already back at the hotel and Brad called me to tell me to place an order and he'd pick it up. Well, I didn't know what he wanted or even what kind of salad dressing he likes even though we've talked multiple times a day for years this is only the third time we've ever eaten a meal together.
I ordered one meat loaf dinner and one fried chicken dinner. I knew he wanted mashed and corn since that's what he wanted if we had chicken fried steak. I ordered one blue cheese and one ranch, thinking I'd be happy with either.
Then... PIE!! I ordered one rhubarb custard and one walnut -- we got drinks from the vending machines and had quite a feast. He took the blue cheese and we split the meat loaf and chicken in half so we each had both. Same with the pie.
|Meat loaf dinner -- really good and homemade tasting|
|Fried chicken with chicken gravy on the mashed potatoes. This was really good.|
|This is the side salad -- Note the rolls... they were light and fluffy and yeasty and wonderful.|
|This tasted way better than it looked. This is the rhubarb custard and we each had half. Neither of us had eaten rhubarb in years, and it really was good.|
|And the walnut pie -- just like pecan pie -- really good. I loved that I got a half piece of two kinds as I don't know which I would have picked.|
|And here's Brad, my lovely dinner date... we had a great dinner together.|
