It’s funny how life ebbs and flows. Sometimes I get stuck going to the same places and following the same routines and then suddenly the winds of change take life in a new direction.
We will know sometime in the next 48 hours which, if any, sorority she unites with and then school can finally begin.
Our house was eerily quiet last week with Rachel’s departure, and when our youngest, Jamie, spent the night away on Friday, we got a good little glimpse of what our life will be like in five short years.
Saturday afternoon several of you came to FRESH to support my Greenberg Turkey sandwich. I made my delicacy under the watchful eye of Sam the turkey man himself. He observed with some concern that I may have been placing too much meat on my sandwiches. I told him I guessed it was the first time in a long time I had been accused of being liberal.
We sat and reflected a bit on the sandwich competition and figured if my sandwich wins the price could be staggering. In fact, the only ingredients I could have added to make it reach $100 would have been black truffles and foie gras. But darn it if my name — and his for that matter — are gonna be on a menu, then maybe it ought to cost $15 or $20. If you want quality, you should pay extra.
Back to the ebb and flow of life. Our Flavor editor, Christine Gardner, is taking on the project of identifying the best hamburger in the area. A big conversation took place in our newsroom last week on the subject. Stay tuned while she briefs us on her findings. For my part, the past two Mondays, I took some time to play golf with my boys at Pine Dunes golf course on the south side of Frankston.
The second Monday we were in a hurry, so we called ahead and ordered our stuff through a delightful lady who answered the phone.
Geneva was on her “A” game when we arrived and helped us get our lunch quickly so I could get back and make it to a memorial service.
Sometimes you just connect with people as though you have known them your entire life even if it’s just for 45 minutes to eat your lunch. Geneva took care of us like we were regulars at the place. If you go, be sure and go all in and get fries and onion rings, and give Geneva my best.
Don’t forget to vote for my sandwich in the FRESH Sizzling Sandwich Showdown. Go to the FRESH website and vote or you can vote in the store through Monday. Just think, if I win, we’ll be eating Greenberg turkey sandwiches in September. What a beautiful thought.
