    General Food Talk

    I think I'd consider it at least one step above Chipotle. You still order at the counter, but they bring you your food and it's not on disposable plates! It actually reminds me of Dos Coyotes in how they do things.

    I alway drink iced tea, but I was SO tempted to try that gigantic soda machine! It looks like a combination of a spaceship and a huge high efficiency washer! Maybe next time.

    Has anyone ever had "Shari's Berries"? If you have I'd be interested in hearing your experience. I am thinking about sending some as a gift.

    I used to work very close to one. If you like chocolate covered strawberries, they're very good. Nice, big berries and good chocolate, as well as lovely presentation. I happen to be the person who picks the chocolate OFF to eat the strawberry, so it's not my favorite place. I'm wary of having stuff like that delivered long distance, but if there's a Shari's close-by, I'd say go for it.

    I hate soda, but that machine *is* fascinating!

    I don't hate soda, but it's usually too sweet for me since I don't drink it very much. Maybe I'm just intrigued by the touch screen and ALL those choices!

    I had a box of them sent to me and they were delicious. The box of berries was packed with a cold pack to keep the berries fresh. The berries weren't mushy at all. The only down side is that the did start to get mushy after 3-4 days. I thought they were great and would love having them sent to me again.

    I decided to treat myself and made shrimp mold for Christmas. OMG, I have never encountered such strong green onions! I've chopped many an onion in my day and teared up on some strong white onions, but green? Never until today. I've got to go get freshened up before 4 p.m. church or I'll look like an unstable mess!
