Between soccer practice ending at 6 and volleyball beginning at 7:30, we ate a family dinner at McAlister's. Since we discovered that two of my four yunguns have genetic high cholesterol, we've stopped going to CFA and are opting for a restaurant with healthier choices. Ala McAlister's.
I still love their veggie pita. I miss the tomato basil dressing though--they haven't had that in forever. When I was in college at Auburn and new to the world of McAlister's, I would go there about 2pm to study. I'd buy a large sweet tea, bag of pretzels and some honey mustard (is that still around either?) to munch on while I worked. If I could focus on my studies until 5pm, I'd buy myself dinner: a veggie pita with tomato basil dressing and a refill on the tea. Good stuff.
So I'm thankful to introduce my kids to McAlister's Deli. I need to tell them that story about studying there; they'd love it!
