On election day, before any election results had been issued, my foodie buddy Sally and I went to lunch at this Mediterranean establishment across town. This restaurant is located on the east part of town in a shopping center and is rather hard to find.
I already loved the place because of the welcoming patio.
I took a few indoor shots
of the warm and charming place (yes, there were other diners, so you only see a portion of the restaurant)
before I joined Sally at the buffet.
Although the buffet was not cheap (remember this is Wichita, KS, where the average lunch is $7.00 USD or less), it was filling. Here is the menu, but no mention of the price of the lunch buffet which was $13.95 USD. I learned the Sunday lunch buffet is $18.95.
I enjoyed the hummus and pita/naan. The beans and saffron rice were filling, but quite bland. The other two vegetarian dishes I tried were OK, but not super. I went back for more hummus and some cucumber yogurt. Sally really enjoyed the meal. Of course, we both had water, but I didn't ask a second time for lemon because there was a slight language barrier. Overall, it was an OK meal, but a bit steep for what I got.
Last Tuesday I was out west. I went to Sam's for cat food and litter, so both boys have it covered coming and going now. I also bought another wireless mouse, because I was tired of using the one I have to chase with a cord. A stop at Dollar Tree for glue dots, then it was on to the new JoAnn's. All these shops were in a strip of malls that were about two blocks long. It just made sense to visit all of them at once.
All the fabric was either 50% off, or 60% off (the two Halloween fabrics). The fat quarters were also 50% off. So was the beautiful thread called "Zebra stripes." I had an additional 20% off coupon that came with my membership ad. I spent a little over $5.00 USD and saved $8.10. They actually paid me to visit.
I bought 1/4 yard (9 inches) of fabric except the red, of which I bought 12 inches (a foot). That will show up in at least one, probably two scrappy journal covers soon.
Now it's your turn to join us for T this week. Any post, as long as it involves a drink, is acceptable. Your post can be about a
movie, fine art, postcard, poster art, sketches, digital, hybrid
or traditional art, unique teapots, or you might share your garden, or
take us with you as you go
out and about like Sally and I did. Photos do not have to be taken on Tuesday, but you
must link below (direct links only, please) to ensure Bleubeard,
gang, and I visit. Of course, feel free to drop by to see what the "T"
gang is up to, and consider joining us for this weekly event either
this week or in the future. We'd
love to have you.
This is Day 22 of AEDM. Again, Bleubeard and I welcome you to join us. I'll be leaving as this goes live, because I need to buy groceries for this Thanksgiving weekend. I'll be by to visit as soon as I return, put my groceries away, and grab a bite to eat.
