Food Wishes do come true!! (just for CTUPTON)


Monday, April 08, 2013

So I owe Chris a big apology!! -- Ok No real need for an apology... but I hope she and You celebrate with me!!!



I posted on her blog this last couple weeks since I have been back that there is no Panera Bakery in town and they had no plans on getting one. Well, as of the last two weeks-- they opened one!!! no, no that is wrong.... they opened 3!!!! (for those in Albuquerque: Coronado Center/Mall, Paseo De Norte & San Pedro (North West Corner area), and CottonWood Mall) One of the local bakeries (or chain bakeries not sure)... changed their brand to Panera... no warning... no "Coming soon" nothing...
So I got to eat at my favorite restaurant which was in Arkansas... but not in Albuquerque, NM. But that has changed...

The other "Wish" I got this week was also food related...



I was hoping a 2nd Genghis Grill would open, as the 1st one was soooo packed on the weekends it isn't enjoyable to go out and eat there. SO Dan took the household that was here to Genghis Grill on Friday night... and it took 15-20 min to get to the pick your food part of the line... then another 10 min at most to get your food once you put your bowl together. I mentioned to the waitress I wanted a 2nd Genghis and a Panera Bread .... She said, she couldn't help me on the Panera but the 2nd Genghis Grill had opened 6 weeks ago, in a different section of our quadrant... (For those in Albuquerque it is near the new Target in the area near WinRock Mall)

So My Restaurant dreams did come true this week.... !!! Now just to limit my intake, so that my calories aren't through the roof....

    Come to find out... Paradise Bakery is a Sister Company of Panera and they had been in the locations that are now Panera.

    That's great!
Sometimes it's nice to have our favourites.

But, you have a good attitude about limiting the intake. Moderation, right?
