    Domino's Pizza (older).

    Can you say what distinguishes the dogs to have made the
    place last for over a century? As far as the others, it
    sounds like the typical feeders of kids tired of dining
    hall food. What is conspicuously absent in your recitation
    is a really good burger place.

    They also had to disguise themselves on Hilton Head Island. No,
    Hardee's > did not have to disguise themselves. They fit nicely in
    with the rest of > the area they're in.
    So I see, and my impression is corrected.
    Probably why it was allowed to keep its franchise design.

    I see why you didn't give us much of a tour of the old
    part of town!

    your cholesterol by > driving down the street with your window open. Just as likely that as by eating the stuff.
    Probably so. (G)

    Anyhow, it's been a while since the fast food places used
    wonderful animal fat to cook their fries. I got Bonnie some
    Grandma Utz's (made with lard) a couple weeks ago, and she
    was immediately hooked. She told me to hide the rest of the
    bag, so I did, but after a couple days of rationing, I went
    to the hiding place and ... gone. Animal-fat-cooked potatoes
    are so much better than nonanimal-fat-cooked.

    Maybe they'll go back to the carrot-raisin salad once they realise
    it > was a better seller.
    Time and profit-loss statements will tell.
    As soon as they realise that kale isn't as popular as some people are
    trying to make it.

    Either that or our tastes are very behind the times.

    And what a nasty-sounding choice.
    That's your opinion and you're sticking to it; ours is contrary. (G)
    Kale with lots of stems? I'm surprised.
    For the amount of salad, I seem to get more stems than I think should be
    in it. Don't know if they get ingredients and have to chop them or what
    (I've gotten the salad in various C-F-As, with the same proportion of stems.)--maybe I need to do some checking into the matter.

    In either case, it sounds like someone along the line
    cheating for a penny - I know, times a million servings,
    that comes to a bit, but it's not worth the bad will and
    digestion. It's worth a complaint to the store and then
    to corporate.

    If there were a Church's closer by, that might get some
    of my business, but with no Popeye's within striking
    distance, I'd just as soon no chicken as KFC or CFA.
    No Church's in the area that I know of. When we lived on the coast, they built one in Jacksonville. If it's still going, that's the closest one I
    know of. There was also one in Savannah, near Hunter AAF.

    It's better than the competition, except for Popeye's
    (though the Shipps note that their new Popeye's is up
    and down, so perhaps the formerly commendable consistency
    is a thing of the past)), and cheaper to boot.

    Which from your context I gather is part of Raleigh proper?
    Technically, yes but it feels more like WF. It's an area known as Wakefield.
    I'd have hoped it were called Wakeleigh!
    I've no idea how the name was chosen.

    That was sort of a joke. The rest of it would have
    been "or Raw Forest."

    We usually just check places out on our own--have gone to some
    places > reccommended by the N&O restaurant critic and been
    disappointed in them.
    What's his or her batting average been?
    For us, maybe about .200; others may have diffferent opinions. The one

    Whoo. Of course others must have different opinions,
    or else the critic would be out on his ear by now.

    German place he reccommended, he gave 4 stars which was top at that
    time, now he gives occaisional 5 stars. We thought it was worth 2 stars.

    Stars is a stretchable concept. One or two stars from
    Fodor's or Michelin, that's cause for celebration; on
    most of the Internet these days that would be the kiss
    of death.

    In Europe, hotels were at one time rated, by various
    government-related tourist institutions, as * to ****,
    with the latter being extremely rare, but now places are
    advertising 5 of them, which I believe is bogus, and some
    fancy resprt in I believe Dubai or Abu Dhabi claims 7 stars.
    It's all pretty bogus, if you ask me.

    In that case, the question is likely no unless there's a
    clientele that isn't obvious to the naked eye.
    Possibly there is, but we tend to head towards Raleigh for most things. Sometimes we have to go elsewhere but most often, for eating out, it's
    either in the WF area or Raleigh.

    Title: Lemon Cream Cookies
    Categories: Cookies, Fruits
    Yield: 70 servings

    1/2 c Almonds; blanched, slivered 1 c Heavy cream
    1/2 c Sugar 2 c All-purpose flour
    2 Lemons 1/2 ts Salt
    1/2 c Dark brown sugar; packed 1 ts Baking soda

    Hi, Denis! Recently you quoted in a message to All:

    Maybe they'll go back to the carrot-raisin salad once
    they realise it was a better seller.

    I enjoyed this part of the conversation because I liked carrot-raisin salad when I discovered it in the States years ago, because kale isn't popular either with me or with my nearest & dearest, and because I have reached an age where I know what's good for me regardless of whether it's fashionable or not. But my guess is that you meant to post your reply in the COOKING echo.... :-Q

    What is Unit-economics, and why does it require Led Zeppelin?

    I don't see a question, so I don't have an answer.
