Best Burgers In America

27 February 2015 - 01:06 PM

Black Hills Burger and Bun in Custer, S.D. (A half hour form me) has been rated best burger in the USA by both Tripadvisor and Travelocity. They grind their locally grown beef to order and make their own buns.


I just found out they also make a gluten-free bun and have a dedicated fryer for french fries. A celiac friend eats there regularly and never gets sick. He's going to take me there soon! :D


The thing I have missed most, to the point I have regular dreams about it, is a good burger and fries from a restaurant. (Making them at home just isn't the same.)  



Canned Pears

26 February 2015 - 08:50 AM

Wasn't sure where to put this but here goes...


For a long time I couldn't eat canned goods. Now I can.


Here in my area it's almost impossible to get decent produce. The few times I've bought fresh pears they were rock hard and rotted before they ripened. So I have recently started buying canned fruit and I am running across the same problem!!


So far I have tried two brands (both "store brands") and the darned pears were so hard I couldn't eat them. They were sour too. They weren't even close to being ripe!


So I am here to ask two questions. First, can I bake these things and make them edible? And more importantly, does anyone here buy GOOD canned pears and if so, what brand?

I Just Have To Celebrate!

One of my guitar students just won the state competition in the VFW's Voice of Democracy contest. She'll be going to D.C. to compete with 52 other students from around the country and giving her speech in front of the president on Feb. 28.


I AM SO PROUD OF HER!!!! super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon.gif



She is beautiful and talented and only a sophomore in high school. (With a 4.0 grade average.) She beat out a bunch of high school seniors. She is also vying for Miss South Dakota Outstanding Teen, part of the Miss America franshise. As cool as that is, this Voice of Democracy win is the coolest.


And she calls me "Auntie Alison". :D

The Big Loaf

04 February 2015 - 09:13 AM

Wasn't sure where to put this. The products section is supposed to be about whether or not something is gluten-free and we all know Udi's is gluten-free.


Anyway, last night I went to buy some and they had a 24 oz. loaf instead of the 12 oz. loaf I have been buying. The 24 oz. loaf is only $11.12 and the 12 oz. is $7.41. A no-brainer as to which one to buy.


Is this new or just new to my area? I don't think I've ever seen the big loaf online but then I wasn't looking for it. If my store keeps carrying this it will save me quite a bit of money. Makes me very happy.
