All the air has been sucked out of my sails just now. I called my best favorite family restaurant to see about a birthday dinner, and found out that they sold the place and will be closing on the 16th. NOOOOOOOOOOOO! I was so incredulous that I had to confirm that I was in fact calling Hot Dish on 65th in Ravenna. After next week it will again transform, this time into some Asian tapas place. I would take pot roast over sushi any day!
Big, heavy sigh.
Better load up on gingerbread pancakes, and see if I can somehow squeeze the recipe out of them.
