David-
I won't tell if you won't tell! 
 
Considering how fantastic Hoosier Mama is, it's understandable to be so loyal. 


So I went to First Slice Pie Cafe in Evanston today. I had kind of the same impression that I had had before, that it was kind of okay.

 
I had a slice of cherry, and a slice of chocolate peanut butter.

 
I didn't particularly like the cherry. It was a bit gummy, and I didn't like the crust.

 

 
I liked the chocolate peanut butter better. It had pretty good flavor and texture. 

 

 
I would say without hesitation that it doesn't compare to Hoosier Mama.
 
David

Don't let Hoosier Mama find out you cheated on her.

I'll try. She's forgiven me several times, but I don't want to push it.

Davidsanders, great leg work, man!  I'm guessing you'll be getting some new shoes before the 29th as the soles must be worn out on your current pair!

Getting closer. Do I need to check out the pie at Hoosier Mama again? I haven’t been in about....... a day.

Make sure to get a second opinion.

I took myself to get a second opinion. My second (and first) opinion is that I love Hoosier Mama.

Good biscuit with butter. Maybe next time I’ll have them split it open before warming it.




And, yes, even more blueberry pie.




I asked Paula (the owner) if she could have blueberry pie on the 29th. She said she would. She’s very busy, so I hope she remembers.

I posted this about three weeks ago. I think it’s probably about as complete as I can make it, but of course there may be audibles.

(I’ll probably go to Kaufman’s for some lox to bring to the bagel shop.)

What a great schedule!  I will definitely be at Kaufman's!  I have made my requests to Paula and they are under consideration!  I look forward to sharing a Cortado with Buddy but even more so a Char Salami with CSD!  
 
I will keep my backside turned away from BenedictBears15 as the knife wounds are slowly healing.

When you're at Kaufman's, I would highly recommend against getting a bagel. Now, I've seen a couple of reviews about how they are the greatest bagels in the world, but the last time I had one there it was basically horrendous. That was several years ago, so maybe they were having a bad day? Maybe they've changed their recipe now? I don't know, but I wouldn't risk it. I'll try to be there by 7:30 or earlier. I know you'll be coming from your third breakfast. I'll be bringing my lox to New York Bagel and I hope we will be there when they are coming fresh from the oven!

Sorry for the confusion...I am not going to Kaufman's.  Will be at NY Bagel at 8am hopefully with a party of three!

Sorry, no smackdown this time.  However, since there will be Distinguished Visitors from the East I'll try to get to Edzo's for a burger.  Eastbound I-90 traffic from WI to Chicago is heavy on summer Sundays so it may take me as long as 3 hours to get there, and it'll probably be another 2-1/2 hours to get home.
