Finally Friday

Today we decided to lunch at Euro Jack's on Main Street in Peoria, which we've visited before.
The crowd was light during the 12:30 hour.
I noticed the seafood bisque on the specials board, and decided to try that, along with a Greek salad. The mug of bisque was full of bits of fish and shrimp, in a creamy, orange base and the salad was light and filled with kalamata olives.
StfRon noticed they had a chef salad listed with britney dressing, and being a britney dressing fiend, ordered it. The large chef salad was full of ham, cheese, greens and bacon, then drenched with lots of the bacony sweet and sour dressing. Very good.

During lunch we also made a stop at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for the first time. This large warehouse is filled with lots of donated materials, like doors, windows and sinks, in addition to used furniture and appliances, light fixtures and more. We didn't see anything we couldn't pass up on this visit, but I'll bet we could score some neat stuff if we kept stopping in.

Habitat for Humanity is a WONDERFUL organization! ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! I would stop at this place to just buy something....to help out. I have dear friends who have traveled all over with Habitat......I'm delighted to see this post!

And I love the fact that these donated items might be kept out of a landfill, too.

We are much too lax on trash here....we need to copy western Europe....and their recycling habits.
