I’ve been told by many people to experience the taste sensations of the local burger place. Or is that palace?
Recently, Qantas, our Australian airline, wrote that when in LA one shouldn’t miss out on visiting an In & Out Burger.
Started in 1948 it is basically the same today. Read about it here :
I was told it was better than McDonalds!So today John , his mother Ann and I visited an In & Out. Jordan was working from home so passed. Perhaps avoiding a burger !
My first impressions. Bright, clean, with the feel of an American diner – what I think is a diner!
I went for the basic cheeseburger. And we shared the ‘animal fries’ what are these! No not fries in the shape of an animal. They are fries topped – or loaded with cheese and a chopped onion.
We helped ourselves to the drinks while waiting for our number to be called.
I checked out the kitchen where the staff, all looking very neat and tidy we busy freshly chopping potatoes for the fries and serving at the take away windows.
We settled into booth. And checked out the food. Neatly wrapped burgers.
It wasn’t too big so I really enjoyed it.
We cruised around the big streets of Lodi past other drive in shopping areas and made another stop at My Yoghurt. Yum!
The owners are neighbours of John & Lisa. In fact they seem to know someone every time we go out. Lodi isn’t that big.
I stopped in at Ann’s place to look at her garden. She a keen potter- taking cuttings and successfully nurturing them ! She’s a loving grandma to Jordan as was reflected in the present from her grandchildren on her 80 birthday. Take a read of this ….
We picked up Poppy, John & Lisa’s 2 year old granddaughter, and went for a walk to the beach. I really love this community private park and river beach.
Poppy is gorgeous and much loved by all the Donati family. My grandson will be born into a loving family, so I couldn’t be happier.
Lisa cooked a lovely family meal for my last night. Thank you John & Lisa for making me part of your family.
