I think every family has that one special dish passed down from generation to generation, ours is Grandma Yockey’s Fried Swiss Macaroni and Cheese.

I should also mention lunch. I had to make a stop at the drive in root beer stand for a frosty mug of the best darn root beer I’ve ever had, and a coney dog because that’s just what you get there:
And of course there was breakfast, another hometown treat:
If I have gained five pounds this week, it has been totally worth it!
