Last week I unintentionally had a bit of an ethnic fest for lunches.
I enjoyed some great Hunan chicken at Ming Shee in Peoria, chicken enchiladas at Lorena's in East Peoria, and Hunan beef at Yen Ching in Peoria.
To end the week, I had a veggie sandwich with dill sauce and an added slice of swiss on multigrain served with deli chips at Adams Street Café in Peoria. With a drink, this lunch came in at about $7, which I noticed was a stark contrast to my last veggie sandwich at Jimmy John's which I believe ran higher than that without a drink or chips. Granted, the one at Jimmy John's was much larger, but also packed with calories (800+).
We attended the 2009 Pere Marquette Gala and very much enjoyed hearing the Squirrel Nut Zippers perform.
Sunday we had lunch at Feldan's in Peoria. We got to try the brown sugar ham, and I thought I noticed a hint of cloves as well. Quite good, as was the pizza from the buffet. StfRon also really enjoyed the baked beans.
We also stopped by Sullivan's in Peoria Heights. I see they will be hosting a bash on election night April 7.
My husband is trying to talk me into chili dogs for breakfast at Emo's in Peoria this Thursday. That angle may not work with me because a) I don't like chili dogs very much and b) I'm not a morning person, but it is for a good cause. From 5:30-10 a.m. the menu items at Emo's will be half price, and all proceeds will go to the Arthritis Foundation.
I do love Emo's cheese fries and chocolate sodas.
