【A highway lunch stop】

(Contributed by Jacqueline)
Yes! I ate the whole thing!
It had been a long time since breakfast and many many miles of highway were behind us. We were facing many more hours of driving and started looking for a place to stop. Sadly we had forgotten how difficult it was the last time along this road and we made lunch of a package of twizzler candy and potato chips… darn.. Should have packed a picnic!
We were determined to find a healthy option so the hunt began. It was a good idea to search on the internet, but that only works if there is a phone signal in the area. We then relied on the signs and billboards along the way but Subway was not a choice we were interested in even though at every crossroad there was one.
After a long additional 200 miles we came across a little place next to the gas station we stopped at. I had never heard of this chain before but apparently is quite well known and has locations across the state (Texas). Not sure if it is a national chain or not, but for me I was very grateful it was found!
My partner was going to have a corned beef on rye sandwich. It was rich looking, full of meat and cheese. The bread was dark and clearly was fresh made. I opted for an alternate choice of bread. Flatbread which I don’t have very often but love. My open faced sandwich was a California Chicken with Cheddar and just for that extra yummy element I added avocado.
It was delicious! So much so.. On the trip back along the same road we are stopping to have lunch there again.
