Stuck Inside

It's raining so I'm stuck inside. I should be doing housework, but after working on getting my mother's antique Christmas ornaments priced (finally) my eye was caught by a brochure I picked up in Elkhart, Indiana. After Bill, Diane, Denny and I explored the RV/MH Museum we had driven to Das Dutchman Essenhaus for lunch where we had a great meal. Their brochure had these "fun facts": The restaurant seats 1,100 customers at once and on a busy day will serve over 7,000 people. In a week, the restaurant may use up to: 2,100 dozen eggs, 2,700 pounds of white sugar, 60 gallons of apple butter, 3.5 TONS of potatoes, 3,600 chickens and more. And they manage to make it all without tasting like the food is massed produced.

Okay, now I'm hungry.
