I am so glad I am not the only one eating like a Hobbit
post #22 of 41
Yesterday I was so sick to my stomach all I could keep down was a donut (breakfest) and sloppy joes(dinner).
I feeling a little better today. My hubby brought me a peice of danish for breakfest which so far I kept down. I ate the half of a bananna that my youngest didn't want and I was able to keep that down. I might make Raman for lunch (not the state side raman, raman in Japan is a totally different creature). Dinner Hubby volunteered to make spaghetti and pick up some fresh made garlic bread on the way home, my stomach is already growling for that and dinner isn't for another 8-9 hours.

It's also called "St. Louis Bread Company" if you're in the St. Louis metro area.
haha no seriously! I don't think we have on in Vermont?? I don't even know what it is? A restaurant? grocery store?

okay holly I got curious about the severe lack of Panera Bread in Vermont and checked out the website and they have 20 in the Montpelier area, so now you have a mission lol.

Their breads, pastries, soups, salads, and bagels are heavenly. We always go the day before Christmas so that every member of my family can have their special bagels on Christmas morning, I kid you not. Oh and here is a description from their facebook page:

We are a company that cares about the simple things: freshly-baked breads, imaginative pairings, attention to detail, a warm place to gather and supporting our local neighborhoods. At Panera Bread bakery-cafes, bakers spend their nights shaping, scoring and baking breads in stone deck and convection ovens before we open our doors each morning. This overnight effort ensures that everything from your morning bagel to your late afternoon sandwich was baked fresh, that same day. We apply this same dedication to all of our cafe items, from fresh, crisp salads with unique flavor combinations, to our savory selection of soups. There’s no detail too small for our attention, because we truly believe that, at Panera, every detail matters.

After breakfest I had rice cakes, fruit snacks, cupcakes (its dh's birthday today), pretzles, a sandwich with chips, another cupcake..turkey burger for dinner, and I just had a greek blueberry yogurt then some more pretzles...fighting the urge for another cupcake.

I've always seen panera breads but never been to one, might have to check them out.

Sorry Mrs-Mama, I have to say one more thing...but then I'll try to stop. :P

Oh my gosh, nintendork, you looked up the Vermont locations of Panera for Holly?!? Holy Cow, that is too funny! By the way, my husband saw your name when I had this thread up on the laptop earlier (he's a big gamer) and he was like, "Nintendork? Like Nintendo and Dork? That's an awesome name!" That made me giggle...

Ugh, I just had a jar of Kozy Shack chocolate pudding... Dairy stuff for some reason doesn't make me throw up! And don't ask about all that vitamin water I have been drinking... Yikes!
Our local supermarket has a two week special on LaBrea rosemary olive oil bread... I keep stuffing myself with that stuff... It is the other thing that won't revolve on me currently. It's so yummie!

I can't believe all the posts about panera bread. I have to post my story. They just opened one in my town so I went to check it out. The menu says you can get half a sandwich and a salad, no price. So I ask the cashier how much the half a sandwich and salad costs. $7.29. So I order and my kids each grabbed a choc milk. She charged my card $13 and some change. So I asked her if the two choc milks were six bucks. She says oh no, you ordered this sandwich and salad, not that sandwich and salad. ARE YOU SERIOUS! Why, oh why would she not tell me my total would be more? So I ended up with a sandwich I didn't want and a salad I didn't want and she charged me a second time, assuring me that the first order was voided. I get my greek salad and for some reason they poured pepper all over it! I took one bite and started choking from the pepper. I brought it back and asked for a greek salad without pepper. Low and behold, no kalmata olives. What kind of a greek salad has no kalmata olives. So I look at the menu and it says they are supposed to be in there. At this point I just eat my food unhappily and leave. But that's not the end of the story, oh no! Two days later I look at my online banking and sure enough there is a $13 charge for panera bread followed by a $12 charge for panera bread. They charged me twice. So I called and told the manager what happened. She said I have to bring her my bank statement to prove that I got double charged. So I had to go to my bank for that because I don't have a printer. Drove to the bank for the print out then drove to panera to prove their mistake. At least they didn't put up a fight. They gave me my money back. As an apology they gave my kids each a choc milk. Didn't change my mind, they are by far THE WORST restaurant I have EVER eaten at. Consider yourself lucky if they don't have a location in your area.

I am on vacation in Canada and can't eat anything. It all makes me sick. No Tim Hortons! Waaaaaaaah.

I shouldn't read this thread, it is NOT making me hungry!

Trekking girl that sounds terrible, what an experience! They should have given you more than chocolate milk for your trouble.

However, the 3 locations by me are delightful

I had nachoes for dinner the last two nights. Last night they settled great, tonight not so much.

Tomorrow's dinner, taco rice. Hopefully that settles well.

LoL, I love mexican food! I grew up in So. California and I MISS it so much.. Japan DOES NOT have good mexican food, if you ever visit here don't eat the mexican food they have!

Taco rice though is actually a Okinawan dish, its really good. I don't make it nearly as good as the places out in town does but with the pouring down rain Ill stick with my version.

My dad lived in Okinawa for a few years during the Vietnam war, and as a Texas native he would agree with you, no good Mexican food in Japan!

Its funny because I am usually a Mexican food addict but in the last month or so it has become an aversion for me. I am hoping the second trimester brings a return of the yummy taco, burrito goodness!
