I've seen this day looming for a couple of weeks now: the 300th post for my blog.
Did I think this blog would last this long? Probably not. But it's still enjoyable to me, so why the heck not?
The moment may seem rather anticlimactic, though, since I really don't have anything profound to write about for my 300th post, and nothing much has been going on.
Let's see, I've enjoyed some local meals out in Peoria, like lunch at Vallarta's, Panache, Yen Ching and the Spotted Cow (they have a nice new sign, but bananas foster ice cream is gone from the lineup); StfRon picked out a winner of a wine at Super Liquors in Peoria; picked out some nice cheese to accompany said wine at Lindy's Downtown Market in Washington; we had some mediocre dining in Springfield; heard of one of our regular haunts being up for sale; spent part of a Saturday poking through the Illinois Antique Center; and welcomed spring with the purchase of some vegetable plants from our local greenhouse, Washington Greenhouse in Washington.
I noted with interest the opening of the Prairie Grille in Kickapoo. The cuisine sounds like not your everyday fare, especially for that location which has seen many a restaurant through the years.
We also have some plans on the horizon for some different local dining this weekend. If they pan out, I'll be sure to report back.
