It’s actually hilarious that the last time I was home we went to Sign of the Beefcarver. It’s basically a cafeteria and the clientelle is very, um, old. Also, they close at 8p.m. so don’t even THINK about getting too wild! We used to go with the family after church like fifteen years ago and my sister Emily suggested going when I was home as a half joke that we took completely seriously. I mean, once it was suggested, we just had to check it out.

Everything was EXACTLY the same.

Look at this. Cottage cheese. Side salad. Roast beef and mashed potatoes. I mean, how could I not? My grandpa got chicken a la king which I must say I would try next time instead. Also, do you think they gave me enough roast beef? My dad got the same thing and I was quite impressed when he cleaned his plate.

Between my sister and I, look at all this food:

The bread was warm (yum) and obviously we had to get a piece of chocolate cream pie or whatever it is in the middle.

The fun thing is that you put all your food on a tray and then you pay for it and someone *carries* it to a table for you. It took me a second to figure out what was going on. Also they have a very nice hamburger dill pickle stand that I COMPLETELY missed until we were on our way out, but don’t you worry, Emily and I snagged a few before we left.

So if you’re ever in metro Detroit, cruising down Woodward Avenue and you think to yourself, “Man, I would just *love* to eat at a cafeteria right now” – well, you know where to go.
