Kim:

Amy, you've never had a root beer float?? That's a shandra (sp)!

Amy, so fun to read all these... love your comment about the midges that fly into your mouth!

You would think that more of us 'foodies' might have been to a three star restaurant!

You are going to have to turn Kim on to Pho! I was surprised that you have eaten Spam, even on a dare. Good to know that I am not missing anything regarding the Krispy Kreme doughnut. I grew up on Dunkin' Donuts and am not sure that Krispy Kreme could top my memory of the many Dunkin' Donut varieties I loved.

Have a wonderful trip to Seattle and Alaska!! Hope you will be blogging along the way.

Amy:

Jerry, even us foodies cannot bring ourselves to pay what a 3-star restaurant charges!

Girasoli, it was your Spam post that made me try it! LOL
