So, I gathered up the younger children and headed to the library to rescue her. It threw a monkey wrench into hubby and my "date night" plans, so we instead took the whole family out for dinner at a local place, called "Crossroads Cafe".
On the chalkboard was something called "slum gullion". I got brave and asked what it was. The server brought me a little sample to try. Turns out, it's like a vegetable beef stew. Think of it as what your grandmother used to do with Sunday leftovers--the leftover roast beef, tomatoes, carrots and potatoes all cooked together into a delicious stew.It was delicious. Obviously, I opted for the grilled cheese combo.
