I know! They didn't have DVRs over in Australia when we were there until 2006 so when we moved back I was so excited to get one!! Combine DVR with HDTV and I'm in technology heaven.

I think I love it bc my great uncle used to own a resturant called the Bean Pot in Crossville, TN and it is like an individually owned cracker barrel. We used to go visit alot when I was younger and I remember he had a piano that could play itself. Thought that was soo cool!
I love their hashbrown casserole. That's neat that you have such great memories.

The waiter was really cool too. He seemed to really like Sully for some reason. I think he got a kick out of the fact that Sully asked for "sauteed" onions on his burger.

Hoping the roads clear up soon so there is smooth sailing!
I hope so too or else this trip report might never get us to Disney World!

Okay - so it wasn't really that funny, but I'm just trying to humor you.

You embarrassed to take a picture of the chair cover???? I find that hard to believe.
I do have my limits! I really shouldn't have been embarrassed since there were some people at a table near us who kept playing the different ring tone options on their cell phone - LOUDLY. Yes, we all want to listen to that, thank you.

Carissa, wow, how scary. So glad you all made it out of the area safely.

I have never eaten at a Cracker Barrel. Your dinner looked awesome. I don't think they are in the Northeast, not sure and I have not seen any out here in SoCal. Hmmm, may be a Southern Delight!!

There are some in NH and MA, but don't think there are any in CA.

My good friend Angela is coming to visit next week and I won't be around for quite a few days so I'm getting as much done now as I can. You'll have time to catch up then!

Thank goodness Cracker Barrell was slow that night! I hate driving through weather like that; I'll even take snow instead. Were the boys scared?

Your CB skillet looks as good as the commercials! I need to go try one of those soon.

I have never eaten at a Cracker Barrel, I remember seeing them all the time from the highway and thinking they were cheese stores. It was only when I started to read the Dis that I found out my error. They do sell Cracker Barrel cheese in the States right?

I thought the same thing! We use to drive past the sign on the way to Pennyslvania. And yes - we have Cracker Barrel cheese here. Yummy!
