new restaurant – the castle

View Larger Map

thecastlemenu.jpgI don’t know if you’ve seen the review for this restaurant called The Castle at the Commercial Appeal or at Dining with Monkeys, but we just went there tonight and it’s well worth it. I was frustrated that we couldn’t get a menu beforehand so we had to order based off of those two previous articles. We ordered both the Gyro plate ($7.99) and the Castle Combo Veggie Deal ($8.99) and they were both terrific. It fed Diana, Elek, and me tonight and I’ll have lunch tomorrow. The grape leaves were a little mushy (I don’t really know why), but everything else was pretty much perfect. We’re glad that Elek tried it as well. Since I was frustrated that the menu wasn’t posted anywhere, I thought I would do everyone else the favor and post it here. Enjoy!

Memphis is a Wreck

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usThis is about what Memphis interstates looked like this morning. There’s some ice on the overpasses and people hit it going 80 miles an hour… what did you think was going to happen??? Just curious. Anyway, I drove to work out part of the highway then got off onto a road that travels next to it and I saw just how many cars were piled to the sides of it. Ridiculous. Not to mention schools got out early yesterday and it didn’t even rain or snow. We need a northern education in bad weather.
