It's been more than seven years since my wife and I went on a vacation to Kansas City to watch the Royals play baseball. It was a nice vacation, though more of a long weekend than anything. One of the highlights was the food. Not that this should come as a surprise to anyone who knows me. However the eatery that I miss most might be a surprise...

Yep, the fast food restaurant. As I sit here at work hungry (I ate my lunch at 7am). I want  a burger... but also tacos... maybe it's the pandemic talking, but I guess I'm saying I want comfort food. When my wife and I hit the Jack drive thru all those years ago, I remember being excited to get a chicken salad and two tacos, without having to go to more than one drive thru. Oh, my wife got a salad and rolled her eyes at my excitement.
