Lots of you know that we drove a straight 26 hours to Kentucky last week to visit all the family that I have there. I was debating on how to share the trip with you all and decided that a recap of the places would be best. These are places that I love, have so many memories of, and that define me as a person. These places helped to mold me into the woman that I am today. I won't bombard you with all my loves at once, so expect a couple of posts like this.
The first is the The Big Cheese. This unassuming deli is located off of 25th Street in Columbus, Indiana. You have never eaten a sandwich until you've had a Big Cheese. It is phenomenal. I recommend The Big Cheese Special, hot, with lettuce. The pickles and brownies are also the best in the state. The Big Cheese is a major craving when I'm pregnant - which is miserable now that I live 1407 miles from it.
I used to fry thirty pounds of bacon every Saturday. 3-0-pounds. Every. Saturday. Do you have any idea how much grease that much bacon produces? Around three gallons. Yeah, that's a lot. I would have to leave my clothes out for my mom to wash, and shower as soon as I got home, because the smell of bacon was so strong. My car would even smell like it from my fifteen minute drive home once a week. I hated bacon for years just because of this. I couldn't stand the smell of it cooking. I would get mad at my mom for cooking bacon while I was home. It has taken me years to want to cook it at my house.
I totally have places that I love because I had great memories from working there. And then there are a few places that left a bad taste in my mouth. Funny how that happens. It's mostly the people you get to work with that make the place!
I love the Big Cheese, too! And trust me, that support was definitel two-way. You got me through high school!
Snappy's! I ate way too much pizza....
I worked at a frozen custard shop in high school. It was a great job, busy in the summer, but slow enough in the winter to do homework while minding the register.
