Pizza Hut

We are cruising to eat at every restaurant on State Street in Orem.
     Listen to all these reasons to get pizza:  1) Friday,  2) not wanting to cook, 3) NCAA basketball March madness, and 4) John did not want to eat out, but was okay with ordering out.  So, obviously pizza seemed like a good option. And we were right near the Pizza Hut when Phil was talking about dinner out on the phone with John.  So, we parked and ordered and spent most of the time while waiting for the pizza trying to get Phil to let me take a picture of him.  He let me take a picture of his eye;  I told him this was not an I-phone.
   NCAA brackets:  I love how you can choose them online and it fills in all the blanks for you as it goes along.  However, two years in a row now, I procrastinate too long and the tournament starts before I get it filled out.  In contrast, Phil carefully filled out 6 brackets.  After the first round Phil moaned that all but one was now trashed.  In his remaining bracket with any hope, he has KU losing to VCU; I know a lot of Jayhawk fans that will disagree with that.
    Well, for watching the games tonight, we ordered the special with two medium pizzas and some pasta.  That is tasty pasta.

Good looking kid!

 We are cruising to eat at every restaurant on State Street in Orem.

This Saturday was one of the first sunny days this year.  All three of us were working outside, raking and cleaning up.  Picked up some of the worst piles and then focused on one little area; it looks the nicest it has in years.  We had worked a couple of hours and John asked if we wanted to go out to eat.  The answer was “yes!” But where should we go.  John also wanted to pick up a few things on sale at Macey’s. So, I thought – “hey, they have a deli there, and tables to sit.  This should count as a restaurant on State Street."
Phil explored for free samples while we checked out the offerings.  The reason John wanted to go to Macey’s in the first place was to pick up some potato salad that was on sale.  So, we ended up buying some chicken and a tub of potato salad.  We grabbed some forks and dove in.  And brought home lots of leftovers.
