From Yum to Yuck

Apparently, there is no safe place to eat in my town.

Remember my Quiznos story from earlier this week? Yeah, I thought that was bad. Today when I got in to work, I had a *huge* stack of restaurant inspection reports on my desk with *six* failing scores. Yes, people, SIX RESTAURANTS in our town failed their health inspections in one week.

The worst was a restaurant that failed last month with a 44 and then failed again this month with a score in the 70s. The kicker? This restaurant was featured on the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” at the end of November. I’m guessing it was one of the Dives. Among the notes on the three-page report was that a live roach was found in the restaurant. Joe says that actually could be considered a good thing because the fact that the restaurant’s employees didn’t kill it shows that they are humanitarians. Yes, that’s my husband’s sense of humor.

The joke today has been that I should fax the restaurant report to the Food Network. I’d love to see their reaction. It’s a good thing Joe and I have been making a more conscious effort to eat at home because after today, I don’t think I’d be comfortable eating anywhere!

    I enjoyed reading your post on quiznos haha! Maybe you can dedicate another post detailing – yep, down to every last gross detail – how these restaurants failed. That would be funny hahaha(:

    ekniff – i might just have to do that. some of it is mundane stuff, but other parts are pretty gross!

    I see you’re in the mood for Christmas and you have an amazing WordPress theme man! (I mean, woman!)

    Eating at home is always good especially if you’re the one that placed that special touch to your food. I am sure your man appreciates it!

    I’d be most interested to read your food reviews (one of the things I enjoy doing besides blogging) and “watch” reactions of cafeterias and restaurants! The only way for food to be improved (taste and quality) is to give sincere feedback.

    kelly – thanks for the compliment about my theme! i don’t think i’ve eaten at any of the restaurants that failed, and i definitely don’t plan to now. but, if i had, reviews would be a great idea!
