The One and Only...
Friday morning, I paid a visit to my friend Sandy. She is a crazy quilter just like me. We talked quillts for an hour or so and then we went to Ivanhoes for lunch. I had never been and it was quite an experience! They are famous for their icecream and their fruit. Funny, huh? So I had their "chicken salad." Two BIG ice cream scoops of really great chicken salad- Sarah, I don't think you'd go for it- it had lots of yummy stuff in it- like pecans and pineapple and celery. It was excellent. But the funny thing is how they serve it. On top of a boatload of fresh fruit! Enough fruit for 6 people- at least 4 cups, maybe more. Incredible. I ate the chicken, but I barely made a dent in all that fruit! I didn't get to try the famous icecream- I was just too stuffed- but they have 100 different sundaes to choose from. When I saw the waitress' T, I just had to have one! Isn't the color edible? So if you are ever in Upland, you should try Ivanhoes. You can't miss it- it will be the place with a packed parking lot and even a line out the door if you come on the weekend!

I LOVE chicken salad with pineapple in it! That's how they fix it at Jason's Deli here in B'ham. And I always get a side of fruit with mine so I'd be a happy camper at Ivanhoes. can we go there next time I'm up??

Hey - I like pecans and I love pineapple. Celery I can take or leave. How big were the chunks of celery? If they are small enough I will eat them. My main problem is raw onions or pickles. Yuck!

Love you!
