Felix, where are you vacationing?  I love a hot dog roasted on a stick over an open flame.  It's been years.
 
We celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday with the family go to

My pasta of choice was linguini and clams.

We've got the cabin called the Chalet. I'm with my niece's family (I usually go with them on their vacations so the kids don't outnumber the adults).

Did you get the "gargantuan" size?  How were they?  The description is quite appealing.

I'm doing breakfast for dinner tonight. Home fries with onion and peppers, bacon, toast, and maybe a couple pancakes.

Felix, that looks like fun!
 
Brad, my brother did the ordering after we chose our dish.
 
He did order gargantuan which was a salad bowl size of pasta. 
 
I'm not a fan of family style dining (trough) but this seemed to work out well.  There were ten of us and 4 gargantuan bowls of pasta were ordered along with two large salads.  There was still food left in all of the bowls when we were finished.
 
My choice was quite delicious.  Large minced clams (not out of a can) as well as clams in their shell.  The others ordered Spaghetti Bolognese, Fettuccine Alfredo and the penne pasta of the day which was also seafood with an Arabiata sauce.
 
All were very good.
 
The problem of the night was the parking.  This restaurant is located at the beach where parking is difficult on a good day.  If you could find a meter you'd pay $2 for an hour.  Of course they're not to be found.
 
Reservations were for 6:00PM.  My brother and his brood got there early and chose the restaurant valet parking.  He saw me driving up at five minutes to six and called me to tell me to just use the beach parking which was the same price and a larger lot.  It took me ten minutes to drive the maybe fifty feet to the parking.
 
I paid $6 to park which took another fifteen minutes of finding an empty space.
 
When we finally arrived at the restaurant my brother said... can you believe they're getting $15 to park?
 
WHAT?  I said that I only paid $6. 
 
After he checked it out it kind of ruined his dining experience.  Seems that before 6PM the parking is $15 and after it's $6.
 
Next time we eat at 6:15PM!

Friends were talking about Arby's and not having one near here we sought out the closest.
 
Ordered the #9 which was Angus Philly Steak Sandwiches served with curly fries.
 
On the sandwich was meat that looked and tasted like meat, white cheese (provalone?) grilled peppers and onions. 
 
It probably tasted good as is but I loaded it up with Horsey sauce and Arby's sauce.
 
The curly fries were also good.  Coated with something and perfectly crisp.  I took turns dipping in their honey mustard, spicy sauce and eating them as is.
 
Is it wrong that I really liked it?

Coco's 
We eat there at least once every 2 weeks!  Food is well prepared, hot, fresh and you get a big portion for your money!
Never once in all the years of eating there have we had a bad meal!  The place we will NEVER, EVER go back to is Applebees!  Absoultely one of the worst places EVER!

Last night lleechef made lamb couscous, a dish she'd not made since leaving France nearly 30 years ago. I cannot begin to tell you how glad I am that she decided to make it again. It was magnificent.
 
The stew is made with chunks of browned lamb shoulder, peppers, carrots, eggplant, turnips, zucchini and chickpeas. It is seasoned with a Moroccan spice called ras el hanout, harissa and tomato paste.
 
The stew is served with steamed couscous and merguez, which is a Moroccan lamb sausage. With dinner we had a rose' from Provence.
 
I can't wait for her to make it again, and she'd better not wait another 30 years.

OK, so it was yesterday. But we stopped at this fabulous little diner in Bear Lake, MI on our way home from the cabin and had breakfast for dinner. Could NOT have been more Roadfood-ish! We ended up sitting with two complete strangers (a woman and her mother) because the place was packed, our plates were equally packed, the food was definitely amazing, and the coffee didn't stop coming until I physically prevented our waitress from refilling my cup. Pancakes, eggs, toast, bacon, sausage, ham, American fries (or hash browns) and biscuits and gravy (homemade gravy). We had to waddle out the door, and it was fabulous.

I read on Facebook about a place not far from home that I've driven past for at least 30 years... without ever stopping.
 
I ordered a Philly Cheesesteak from a place called Submariners.
 
Not typical with lettuce and tomato added, but it sure was good:

I just got home from the Culver City La Ballona Carnival.  Watched the Culver City cheerleaders do their thing, listened to live music and ate 3 pretty good carne asada tacos.
 
Then I had a cup of Lappert's Maui Pie Ice Cream.  Hawaiian Ice Cream has come to Culver City!
 
It's excellent ice cream;  both rich in flavor and very creamy. 
 
The last time I had Lappert's was in Oahu.

                                          Would it spoil some vast eternal plan?
                                          If I were a wealthy man.
                           
                                         And your still eating those nasty hot dogs. This is a rerun of the same show every year. I thought by now, a Classy Gal like lleeChef, would have rubbed off on you a bit. But all you give her is, Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum........
