On to happier things... The drive up north. Since not all of you live in Michigan, I thought I'd share some pictures of the things that I see and pass on the way up north. Some of these places you may not have ever seen...or hadn't seen in years. So, here is the drive northbound on I-75 from south of Detroit to the Midland area.
White Castle - home of the 'slyder'. Don't let them fool you on Top Chef, this is the original 'slyder'. Tim Allen has it right! We have lots of White Castle's in the area, I like the jalapeno cheeseburgers! They truly are hangover food. This stuff is not good for you!
Tim Horton's. GREAT coffee! I stop on the way to work there all the time. It is a coffee and doughnut chain in Canada and they are heading south. Tim Horton was a hockey player in Canada.
Halo Burger. This is a small chain of fast food in the Flint area. My Mom grew up in Flint. This used to be known as Q.P.'s when she was a little girl. They are famous for putting green olives on their hamburgers. Even at home, I put green olives on my burgers. YUM.
And, we can't leave out Frankenmuth's Freeway Fritz. Frankenmuth is a small German community but well known for their world famous chicken dinners. Freeway Fritz is part of the Bavarian Inn and they have this little to go place right off of the freeway if you can't sit down for their family style meal. I prefer Zehnder's over Bavarian Inn - just a personal preference. It had started to snow when I got to Frankenmuth.
