Meet Me At The Honey Baked Ham Cafe

This tangent that will bring us back to the Honey Baked Ham Cafe.

Last week I had a huge craving for Boston Market.

My mind swirled with nostalgic cravings for a rotisserie chicken or meatloaf platter with the orange macaroni and cheese that always tastes more disappointing than it looks (yet you order it every time anyway).

I was surprised to to find that all of the Boston Markets in Minnesota have closed.  Minnesota, Iowa, and North Dakota have zero Boston Markets. Wisconsin has two. Florida has 50. One for each state.

How dare you leave Minnesota when I haven’t wanted to eat you for a decade?

Somehow this brought me to a second, fast casual meat-centric chain, The Honey Baked Ham Cafe.

Take-Out Times: Three Favs

When people ask me what I’m up to this summer, the answers always the name:

“Not much, haha.”

If they ask if we’re going on any trips, the answer’s “Nope lol.”

Three Things: Watchmen + Two Meals

Here are things I wanted to write about; one TV show + two meals.

Watchmen
Watchmen is one of the most incredible show I’ve ever seen. I can’t stopped thinking about it.

I’m not familiar with the comic, so I spent a lot of time frantically Googling backstories for Dr. Manhattan, Silk Spectre, and Ozymandias and reading the Peteypedia.

The first episode opens with a scene that really did happen – the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Continue reading

The Five Comfort Foods Getting Me Through

I’ve been thinking about comfort foods a lot. Probably because of all of the uncertainty.

When shit hits the fan I want something familiar. These foods have always been there for me for as long as I can remember – OK, so maybe Bangkok Thai Deli has been here for me for the past decade, plus, but still.

Each of these foods is something I’ve ordered at least twice during the pandemic (I think we repurchase a Top The Tater every other shopping trip). These restaurants and foods feel like old friends. Maybe they are.

Here’s my list:
