Shopping with Toni

Hi everyone!  Earlier in the week Toni and I made the trek to Olde World quilts.  It is such a lovely shop.  It's beautiful.  they have lots of wool, wonderful wool!  you can check it out here:  Olde World Quilts

Then off we went to La Grande Orange Grocery  OH MY GOSH!!!  talk about yummy!  They have breakfast, lunch and pizza!  they start cooking the pizza at 4PM.

I had a Reuben.  One of my fave sandwiches.  This one was beyond good.  The meat was shaved extremely thin.  The coleslaw had a good crunch.  Lots of homemade 1000 island dressing.  it was an extremely messy sandwich to eat.  But I persevered and did my best! 
Toni had the bacon avocado with bacon sandwich.  She let me have a little bit.  Oh boy, it was yummy too.  She also ordered the potatoes.  We sat and tried to figure out how the potatoes were made.  I think they baked them, then sliced them really thick.  at least 1 1/2" thick.  then browned them.  yummy.  crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.  then served with sour cream.  next I make potatoes, I am going to try and duplicate.  I bought some English muffins to take home for Bruce and 2 giant ho hos.  but they are gone and did not get pics of them.  Toni shared a chocolate chip cookie - giant size, with me.  it had a sprinkling of sea salt on the top.  heaven.  So worth another trip to go back.  


I think we talked and laughed all day.  we missed you Cyndi!  



  1. you are making me hungry, Lorene! How did you know that I had reuben makings on my grocery list?? If I didn't before now, then I would be adding them after seeing that sandwich. I love 'em a bit more than my husband but that's okay.

  2. Too funny, my friend Ana and I had lunch there this week too. She got the Rubin and said it was the best she ever had!


Hey, thanks for visiting! Come back soon.....
