T stands for A-Maize-N

Technically, the name is Nancy's A Maize N Sandwiches, and that is because the restaurant is in Maize, KS.  Although it's a bit of a drive to get there, Maize is really now just a suburb of Wichita.

As Wichita expanded north, Maize expanded south, until there was no room for either to expand further in those directions.

There were a lot of locals in the restaurant, even though it was not the customary meal time.

Sally and I spent a long time looking over the menu.

For me it was a challenge, because this was not a vegetarian friendly establishment.

Even though it was freezing outside, Sally ordered a cherry limeade.  I stayed with lemon water.

I could see the cherry in Sally's drink, but she was surprised when she finally decided to drink it, and found the stem.

I finally requested a grilled cheese sandwich on an onion roll.  They had to make it special, because, like I said, they don't really cater to vegetarians.  The fries were quite good, though.

Although these photos were taken last year (OK, early last MONTH), I still wanted to share them with you, since I have found a plethora of times Sally and I have gone out to lunch that I have never shown on my blog.

So what are you posting today?  Were you also out and about, or are you sharing a scrapbook, digital, or art journal page with us?  Are you dyeing fabric or paper using tea?  Did photos define your post, or did words?  Whatever the case, please link below and we will be by to visit.  Your post can be about anything, as long as you can, in some way, tie it back to a drink, a mug, a cup, or something that holds liquid, whether it's digital, virtual, hybrid, paper art, or realistic.  Don't forget, photos can be taken at any time, not just on Tuesday, and not even this year!

I must say that those fries do look good! Amazing isn't it that a vegetarian should struggle for choice on a menu these days! Smiled at Sally's cherry of those 'i see it but can't register it' moments!

Looks like a nice restaurant--especially those purple chairs :)
It's nice that smaller places like this still exist as they often have the best food.

Glad you said when the photo was taken because I was surprised to see Sally in short sleeves.

It's so nice to have a good friend to lunch with on a regular basis! The weather hasn't been cooperative here and besides, I hate the cold so I'll have to make up for going for lunches in the Spring:)In the meantime, I'll enjoy my art time!

see you there! said...

I like the name of the town. I also like the old diner look of the place. Too bad they didn't have more veggy choices. You should have been with me earlier this week I had a great grilled eggplant sandwich at a little spot down the road.

I'm glad you could figure out something to order. It can be hard for non-meat-eaters to eat out!

I've been in for several days again. Cold! But I have to venture out today. Going to make it worth my while and get a bunch done. :)
Happy T day!

Silly me! I forgot to come and link up my post for hours! Duh! But here I am again, regardless. Just later than usual. ;)

You had already found my post, though, Elizabeth! :):)

I am always amazed at how much space you have in the US..over here everything is on top of each other in towns as lack of space..reason I like driving for 5 mins out into the country as I live on the outskirts of town
