The cabin picture posted by indyfabz makes me think of all those HGTV shows mrs datlas watches where they talk about "open concept." This is REALLY open concept.

My sister photographed a black bear ambling along the roadside, yesterday, 80 miles outside of NYC. She didn't say in which direction

:bday: I successfully logged in on my phone!

Was great fun ( I tell myself it's fun) reeling them back in before the end of the ride.
. Must be the end of the season as I finally feel like I have some legs under me.
5027 miles for the year so far

Second year in a row I doubt I have a thousand. Hoping for a better Winter.

My memory tells me Royal Castle preceded White Castle. Anybody else share that memory?

Better yet, pick up dinner for your family. Gourmet night!

No White Castle for me as we live below the great divide.

Being a new member, I'm in the process of re-learning all the notification settings(how to turn them off). I think I may have been successful, just now, thanks to someone with one blue star.

Still waiting for the "beyond beef" white castle product. Not holding my breath.

I've never been to a White Castle but I remember when McDonald's menu looked like this.

I don't think White Castle has beef in it.

I had an "Impossible" Whopper from BK once. It wasn't bad, very similar to a regular Whopper.

I used to eat boca burgers all the time. Now that I think of it I am not sure why I stopped.

They have Impossible Sliders. They've been around (in this market, at least) for 2 years or more. They've been leaders in meat alternatives, that I've seen.

mrs datlas and I went to BK a couple years ago and we had Impossible whoppers for the novelty. It was fine, but not something I would have on a regular basis. Maybe once/year.

:bday:

Fun fact White Castle started in Wichita, KS even though there hasn't been a White Castle there for decades now. There's actually a surprising number of nationally-known or at least regionally-known restaurants that started in Wichita, like Pizza Hut, Taco Tico, Freddy's, Spangles... I guess if there's something we're good at in Kansas it's bland unremarkable food that makes you fat.

Pizza Hut I'm familiar with, and I've heard of Freddy's and Spangles, but never partaken.

But Wichita...

Not sure if it still holds true, or if it was ever true in the first place, but rumor had it that WC used the highest grade beef of any fast food burger chain. Maybe a place like Culver's is better now, though.

If you really want to partake in "beef" that deserves the quotation marks, Taco Bell is the place to go.

Wichita is a completely unremarkable town but people from there are perplexingly fiercely proud of it.

Another well-regarded regional chain with local roots is Braum's Ice Cream which started in Emporia, KS in the 50s under another name. Now it's headquartered in Oklahoma and they refuse to open chains that are more than a one-day drive from their dairy in OK, so basically 300 miles. It's kinda like Culver's but further south.

I also enjoy Culvers but the local franchise stopped giving free ice cream for dogs at the drive through (even though I was ordering regular meals so it wasn't exactly free) so I stopped going because Dairy Queen and Sonic still have ice cream for dogs. It's a fun treat for them.
