Monday Specials

Spicy Jack Panini - turkey, very spicy Jack cheese, caramelized onions and zebra sauce.

Jalapeno Corn Chowder (vegetarian)

I have a new food find from southwestern Virginia! If you are heading down Interstate 81 toward Roanoke, Blacksburg and points south, take a quick detour toward Daleville (Exit 150B - Route 220) to some heavenly donuts! Blue Collar Joe's is an old service station that sits on the opposite side of the road and is soooooo worth the u-turn! The donut case reads like a cross between Ben & Jerry's and Willy Wonka with flavors such as Chocolate Cheesecake (a "hole" stuffed with cheesecake!), Glazed Apple Cider, Nutty Buddy, Black Forest, Blueberry Pancake Breakfast (with smoked bacon), Botetourt Bog (triple chocolate) and German Chocolate Cake. These cake donutes are treated like... well, little cakes. Each one is beautiful and delicious.

Really, really, really make a point of stopping in if you're in the area.

Note to self: building pictures are nice, but try to refrain from jumping on the food until you take a picture of it too.
