Today’s Mother’s Day and my mother received both a card and flowers this year. I was a bit concerned that she wouldn’t receive the card in time as it went out the door a little later than I expected (the USPS routinely takes 7+ days to mail a letter to PA from MN). She liked the flowers but had nothing to say about the card. I suppose I failed on 50% of it. Sending a card won out in last week’s poll about Mother’s Day gifts by one vote but flowers and “other” (which was left unexplained) were close behind. Interesting results none-the-less.
And on to this week… With word out that White Castle is looking to fill the space vacated by Boston Market, I wondered how many of you have eaten at White Castle.
Now, I know plenty of people that look at you with crossed eyes when you say you eat there but when pressed about the issue, rarely do you hear that anyone has actually eaten a White Castle slider. In typical Minnesota fashion these people just heard that it wasn’t good and continue the fallacy that it’s true (just like “ooh if you like camping and hiking and fishing you need to get to the BWCA,” even if they’ve never been there and have no idea what it’s like).
Growing up going to White Castle was a tradition for my grandfather, my father, and me. We’d visit my grandparents in NY (there were no White Castles anywhere near us in PA) and pile into my grandfather’s boat and make the drive. We’d never go inside and instead order from the drive-through (think of the fumes!) and eat them on the way home because my grandmother hated the way they smelled and didn’t want them in the house. I have continued the tradition of eating White Castle sliders and have written about it before including our trip to White Castle for Valentines Day.
