Heart Attack in a Box


Hubby and I were out running errands and arguing (or discussing) about what to eat for supper. He wanted a Sonic burger (Yuck!) and I didn't think I could stomach that.

I had suggested a local burger joint where I could get a good fish sandwich. He agreed and we were en route when we spied the Long John Silver's catering truck. I loves me some Long John Silver's.

Our little town isn't big enough to support a Long John Silver's store, so they send their catering truck up from Louisiana (I thought; Hubby says Texarkana) to hit all the little towns in southern Arkansas.

They show up unannounced and set up in the parking lot of a vacant store. Word gets around fast when they arrive and usually there's a huge line snaking around the parking lot. If you don't get there quick they run out of food. Usually I don't make it in time. Victory today!

I love the crumblies.

It's probably a good thing I don't get to eat LJS except two or three times a year.

You know you live in a small town when the highlight of your day is eating fast food from a taco truck in the parking lot of the old Piggly Wiggly.

I LOVE the crumblies, too! Since I was a teenager. Great stuff. What saved me from eating LJS regularly (we're a big enough town to have TWO)is that our daughter hates everything they sell. I'll sneak there for a lunch once in a while.

Wow. Long John Silvers is one of my favorites too. Except for the one day I worked at one during my Freshman year of college. I was assigned to the hush puppy machine. Lasted one shift.
