Summertime Goodness

In my pursuit of finding the good things about living here in northern Indiana, I noticed a good one to write about today. Volcano Pizza makes really good pizza in Elkhart. I would put a link here, but you wouldn't believe how many local businesses don't even have a web presence. Volcano is famous locally for their summertime tent sale, which they only have for a couple of days each year. All they sell are Italian sausage sandwiches. They consist of flat Italian sausage patties cooked to perfection with grilled onions and green peppers on fresh bakery rolls. They're about five bucks apiece, but as you can see, there's no shortage of people who show up to buy them every year in the parking lot behind their restaurant! They set up tables and chairs under the tent, and you can enjoy your food with your neighbors right then and there. Can you guess what I had for lunch?

I wish I knew you were in N. Indiana - I was just there!

Well, now that you know, you should drop me a line when you're going to be here next time. I can tell you where the good places to eat are!

Mmm. Sounds good, Jim.

Reminds me of the old St. Mary's of Swormsville (NY) near where I used to live. Instead of Italian sausage sandwiches, it was chicken corn chowder. You should have seen the traffic with the people lining up for half a mile down Transit Road!
