I live in the land of milk and honey...

Well, every so often, watching the news excites me. I rarely watch a newscast these days, but I was tuning in to see what was going on in the legislature with some autism laws. Well, to my pleasant surprise, they announced something I thought I'd never see. In N Out Burger is coming to my town! MY TOWN!!!! When one came to St. George, we were dying! I will be a mile away from animal style burgers! There goes the diet. For those of you easterners who read my blog, In N Out Burger is the best thing to come out of California besides Coronado and Disneyland. My So. California hubby introduced to me to the loveliness that it is. Our kids adore it. I adore the secret menu! Cannot wait! 
Seriously, a new temple, Ikea, Zupas, Cheesecake Factory 5 miles away.... I love my town. And...another good reason for my husband to stay in Utah. If he could surf the Great Salt Lake, we'd be set for life!

Wow! That is great news. Even being surrounded by In-n-Out, I still love it and consider it fine dining.

I thought I was the best thing to come out of California! Oh well, I'll gladly take a back seat to In-N-Out. I figured the Draperites had attained a cerain level of righteousness in order to get a Temple. But man, we must really be doing something right to get the pinnacle of eateries in our midst. Oh, and the surfing will come, once the BIG ONE shakes Cali into the ocean.

Bill's comments always make me laugh. Sam told me the awssome news last night!! I am within walking distance to In N Out burger! I can't wait. What is the secret menu?

I heard Fisher and Peggy talking about this on the radio yesterday. I have never experienced the burgers at In-N-Out. Looks like I'm going to have to wait 45 minutes for lunch!

It's against the "Californian Code" to reveal the secret In-N-Out menu. Many a Dude has lost his "Tastiness" for breaking "The Code."

But since I'm an expatriot, apparently never "going back to Cali" to quote LL Cool J, and "The Code is more like a set of"guidelines really" ...here's the menu per In-N-Out's website:

But there is more to the secret menu that what is listed there...but I'm taking that secret with me to the grave...ARRRRRRR!

Wow! That is REALLY exciting news! Scott and Charlotte have been pretty lucky to have In-and-Out for lunch the past 2 days... It is by far our family's favorite.
