You should try watching youtube. We found a great one that explained expiration dates. It is actually very complicating. In fact, it is so complicated, that in the future I am going to ignore them. I will, of course, just use my eyes when it comes to produce!
My hubby and I see things different when it comes to expiration dates. He has always thrown food out past the expiration date (products that have never been open). He would brutally clean out the refrigerator and cabinets. I get so mad at him for this. It was throwing food away for no good reason!

I cringe at round-abouts, but the ones in Hughesville are no problems for me! But the traffic is horrendous on Mr. Wolf Rd and Triangle Dr. and it is very tricky driving already there. It is very congested and somewhat confusing with the Rite-Aid, WaWa, and Food Lion. We do have accidents there....don't most people find round-abouts confusing? I know I do. I'm just wondering if adding a round-about there, would make matters worse?

I'm not comfortable with buying anything from those types of stores that has an expiration date.
Salads don't have a long shelf life and they aren't set up to handle that type of merchandising.
I find them convenient and will purchase canned goods and frozen items. I'm not very picky when it comes to meals.

I don't shop at the Family Dollar Store, or the other one in CH. But I would shop at a Dollar Tree! They are the best! They have the best selections for the best price!

The groceries at these stores are still typically provided by distributors, not shipped through the store merchandising system. So they are very much "set up to handle" it. And the smaller shelf space means more competition for items that sell well, which means quicker turnover and a better chance to get a "fresh" product. About half the time I go shopping at McKays or Food Lion I end up with at least one product that was past the date. The only time that has happened to me at Dollar General / Family Dollar / etc. is if I am picking up an unpopular candy from the selection under the register.

Wow. This place looks like it'll do even better.
Very bottom of the menu, "Items & prices are subject to change", has no prices listed. Except for, "Double Burger 11.00".
But hey, it'll be the very best food Sysco sales reps have to offer them. Everything on the menu appears to be high profit Sysco, void of nutrition, junk. Being in the business for over 40 years like the owner has, you learn a thing or two on how to maximize profits from ignorant clientèle.

May have missed it. What's going in behind Caldwell Bankers on 235 next to Wal-Mart in California? The Donut Connection that has been advertised for the past three years?

The fact that this food will be void of nutrition, junk, means that it will taste good! Iol I like going to places where the food tastes good! I am greatly looking forward to going to a new place in CH. We need more new places!

No problemo. Bon Appetit. I myself enjoy an occasional outing to an eatery such as this. I just don't make it a habit. Bland healthy food can be made to taste zesty though. Use Celtic Sea Salt instead of regular table salt, and real cold pressed EVOO and other herbs and spices. And presto change-oh ...yummmy. When I say sea salt, Celtic or otherwise, it refer to the real stuff that still has a moisture content to it. There are companies such as Mortan's that process it, clean and filter and then dry it, making it all white and worthless. The real good stuff is discolored, contains all the micro nutrients as it had when naturally dried in the sun, and still has a level of moisture content. One can really taste the difference. Please report back after your experience with the new place.

Good foor, healthy food, does not have to be bland and tasteless.
Actually a mark of a good chef is that the dining room is void of salt and pepper shakers.
Their food doesn't require the guest to season it with condiments

Had a really good pan sear halibut the other day, with a fresh vegetable side.
Low carb, high protein, 00% natural and very tastey

What's going in beside the CPFCU in California?
something that won't have any parking and will add to the congestion at that intersection.
The Donut Connection is going to be interesting as well. It will add to the entertainment factor on that stretch of 235, particularly if NB drivers want to enter and exit the location.
