Where has Jim Been — MidWeek Blues — A Quiz (another)

.These have been on my blog several times. The Runza is considered by many, the Jim's included, to be the National Food of Nebraska.

I had my first Runza in Lincoln, Nebraska. The owner of the original Runza Hut started all this in a little restaurant in a former home out by Antelope Park. You could walk up to the window and order. Either to go or to take to a picnic bench under the trees and awnings to eat on premise. He did have a couple of tables inside for rainy days.

Actually, we ate these Runzas in Iowa while at my sister, Lois' home. But we did buy them in Nebraska.

Answer to Quiz: Jim has been to Nebraska!!
Locations are pretty well anyplace in Nebraska, in Lawrence, Kansas, and two in Colorado.

Other exciting things happened in Nebraska.

At the old City Cafe in Tekamah, now TailGaitors, we had our noon meal. I had a TailGator Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich. It was better than the last one I had their under previous owners. Theirs came out of a plastic bag frozen from the restaurant supply company. That one really needed two bags dumped into the bun. This one was on the skimpy side but the taste was delicious.

Another item of amusement was in watching the shredder people come to a local nursing home and shred two baskets of paper. I was interested in how the control panel worked. It was complete with a TV monitor showing the shredding operation inside and operated by an internal computer. It even had a remote starter for the truck engine.

Besides two of three of these Nebraska items, Runza paper and Big Shredder, had blue for MidWeek Blues posting here.
If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking here. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did. Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE or BLUE THOUGHT, you don't have to write.

Check back later to see the next of my episodes in Nebraska, 2011

That Runza sure does look yummy!
Never heard of these. I'll have to look them up to find out what's inside.

Have a terrific day. :)
