Menu Plan 04.21.14 and 04.28.14

I have no plan again this week. We leave Friday for New Iberia and will be gone until the following Wednesday. Between now and then I am working a crazy schedule the next three days I will go to work, sleep, go to work again. I will have Thursday to pack and get everything ready. Over the weekend our stove went out. We expect the new one tomorrow.
Hoping it arrives while I'm at work rather than while I'm asleep. Its a Maytag AquaLift. Can't wait! Plans for next week are up in the air. My schedule beyond Wednesday is still not definite. Everything will also depend on when I get to go grocery shopping. So I'm still at no plans. Will have some vacation posts for you next week and eventually a post on this past week with John's family in from Wisconsin.

Menu Plan 04.14.14

My plan this week is to not really plan. John's sister is visiting for the week so I will just work around whatever she wants to do. On hand I have what I need to make Manburgers, Ham, Grilled Chicken, and Slow Cooker Coffee Braised Chile Beef. Whether any of this happens this week remains to be seen.

Rockin' J's

Rockin' J's is a little spot on the road in Comanche, TX; about 30 miles from us. We will drive over for date night every now and then or stop by for lunch on our way to Stephenville. It used to be a convenience store with a little cafe. They have now removed all the gas pumps and converted the convenience store into a bar/extra seating for the restaurant. Great food, the service is ok when it's slow to moderately busy. If you're in there on a Saturday night when they are slammed, expect the service to be a bit slow. My fav is actually on the appetizer list - Boneless Buffalo Wings.
You have a choice of Frank's hot sauce or sweet BBQ sauce; I always get the hot sauce.
Then some yummy beer battered onion rings to share. The hubby's fav is the Double Double Bacon Cheeseburger.
Double meat, double cheese with bacon - yummo! If you're ever in the area it is definitely worth a try.
