That is a good idea but we would have to pay off our building (10 years) before taking on any more debt at this point. I just racked up a few more thousand in medical bills and that has curtailed a few of our plans as well. We both have health issues but our plans and ideas just keep charging ahead, it's our income level and energy level that is holding up the progress ! I kind of like the idea of pulling a small food vending trailer with a motor-home and do fairs, but then there is the fuel price issue now. Oh well, like I always say, "When $hit becomes valuable, po folks will be born without bung holes !

Mix with pasta of your choice and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh parmagana reggiano,pepper and sea or kosher salt. You could even toss in some crumbled feta or blue cheese at the end if you want.
Great light summer dinner!

And if you're still hungry, while the grill is still hot slice a couple of bannana's in half lengthwise, leave the peel on and throw them on the grill peel side up. Add a couple of pineapple slices (canned if need be) or half peaches and grill until carmalized and hot. Toss over some vanilla ice cream if you can keep your hands off of them until then!
If rickers gets a restaurant going someday looks like he wont half to look far for another chef!

You guys are making me hungry again!

Sounds familiar. Were in pretty much the same boat, except I'm lucky enough to be the one without health issues. My wife has some, but she still charges along.

Fuel is killing me right now, but we have tons of work right now so I can't really complain.

The dream is to fly people to backcountry lakes for fishing trips out of a floatplane, but that's a ways off as of yet.

I'd really love to start a rustic Itlalian eatery here using basic,fresh ingredients at a reasonable price. I think one's sorely needed.

Oooh, I could go for that... low-salt, sugar-cured bacon, cook 3 pounds at a whack (I just throw it into my Nesco countertop roaster all in one Costco-sized lump)... save the grease and use it for butter. Slather it on crackers, yummmm!!!!!!

Sounds interesting -- something other than the usual spaghetti joint, and more personalized than chains like the Olive Garden.

Funny thing, most of what we think of as "ethnic food" is really peasant food, inventively prepared by people who couldn't afford red meat.

Back a long ways ago, I met a guy who did just that -- couldn't afford his own plane, so he rented one whenever he needed it. Way less up-front investment and no ongoing investment (maintenance, insurance, etc.) yet still made the same money flying rich folks around to special fishing spots. And since he didn't have to support his own plane, he could do it on a part-time basis, no need to have full-time clientele right off the bat.

Anyway, might be something to look into, start it up as a weekend job and see how it goes.
