I came across a Wall Street Journal article recently that talked about inflation and how the prices of dang near everything are going up due to inflation. No big surprise to anyone, we have been seeing it with our own eyes as of late. It is especially tough for small businesses right now, specifically restaurants. The pandemic 2 years ago really threw things off course, with supply-chain shortages
Now that I'm out and about alot more, hitting up grocery stores, department stores, restaurants, I've noticed something about some restaurants. Not all of them are open for dine in. What the heck? I tried to take my kids for pizza one day last week and discovered Pizza Hut was not open for us to eat there and I believe that goes for most of them.
Ummm why didn't anyone warn me? I actually ventured out this week to one of my favorite places to eat in the Permian Basin, for my favorite meal and lo and behold, it was not available! I asked the waitress, 'are you for real? That dish is the only reason I came here.' Poor girl was probably like yeah get over it lady, you gonna eat or not? lol (I wasn't rude and I know it is something out of her
Since we all went crazy loading up on groceries and necessities when this all began, I've done a ton of cooking. Mostly lunch and dinner and the occasional pancake, eggs and bacon breakfast but I do have to get my fix every now and then. My favorite shredded chicken salad with Catalina dressing, chips and salsa from an awesome local restaurant. (shout out Mi Pueblo!)
