Mine is 13 and little Mack. I’m hitting it up. And you’re probably both right. The address is 36600 Vandyke.

You take the first two digits 36. Subtract 5 and divide by 2. Gives you 15 1/2. The 600 probably puts it closer to 16. It’s the old truckers trick. First two digits subtract 5 divide by 2 gives you “about” the mile road.

lol, that's why I guessed 15...I learned that one when I lived in the D 30 years ago. From memory I thought the Meijer on VD was at 14 mile but I must be getting addled in my old age.

If you go they also have chicken thighs for $0.87#, my daughter did some of those on the grill last week and they were mighty tasty. More flavor and moisture than breasts.

14 & VD is a Walmart. Same complex as the church I pick up milk.

Attempt #2. Slightly different recipe.Less flour, lower bake time and temp. Used king aurthur bread flour thanks for the recommendation seemed to work much better. Rolls got bigger than I wanted but this seems more moist and less crumbly.

The rolls look good. Next to smoke a butt for them.

Made a fruit salad today that turned out mighty tasty.

2#'s strawberries quartered
2 pints Blueberries
2 medium bananas sliced.
50-60 grapes halved
2 cups Peach yogurt
1 Tub of CoolWhip

Gently mixed/folded together until uniform.
Works out to about 180 calories for a nice serving.
I'll snap a pic later.

Work ordered catering delivery from Dickey's BBQ (Van Dyke) today. My first time trying it. Pulled pork, sausage, turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and cole slaw. Tried all but the pork (looked really dry) and slaw (excessive mayonnaise).

Everything I tried was exceptionally salty. They could have cut the salt in half and it still would have been too salty. Little wonder the Dickey's location in Troy went out of business.

The fruit salad a couple days in - it's kept well and the flavor may have improved a bit.

Ordered the Chicken Cream Chop (no idea why it's called that) lunch special at Al Kabob for the first time today. Have ordered the dish (breaded and deep fried) from a local Iraqi restaurant before and it was excellent...perfectly cooked and juicy.

Al Kabob's version was highly disappointing. First thing I've tried there that wasn't great. Chicken was pounded way too thin to be in the fryer as long as it was. Overly dark color and tasted burnt. Tried to eat it but had to stop because it was unpalatable, even after dipping in their delicious hommous. The leftovers.



Stopped by there on the way home after work and politely told them what I've said here. The young guy (early 20's) behind the counter was there when I picked up my order at lunch. He explained they have to make sure the chicken is cooked. He's seen me in there countless times. I asked for a beef kabob. He charged me for it.

Will be a little while before I go back there but will be having a chat with the owner when I do. He was there when I picked up lunch but not after work. He knows I'm a loyal customer, as well as some of my co-workers. He has personally delivered large catering orders to our place of business. He has made me stuff (raw kibbee, lamb burgers) that are no longer on his menu since he diverged from Beirut Palace.

Will be giving him advice on chicken cream chops. Thicker chicken, less breading, and don't overcook. He needs to try competitors.
