and now we Digest...

Tonight we have a bit of a competition between Pearlstone Cafe and Heubeck dining hall in the chicken wing category. I'm not a big fan of chicken wings but I hear Pearlstone does a good job with them. If any of you happen to have two dinners tonight and try the wings at both places please let me know what you thought of them.

If you are like me and you don't want to "wing it" tonight check out Stimson dining hall. There are quite a few menu options that I feel are worth pointing out. Let me start with the least healthy, the cheeseburger pizza. I might just have to indulge myself and try a slice. A healthier menu option that grabs my attention is the Smoked Salmon & Potato Burger with Olive Tapenade on Toasted Kaiser Roll with Arugula & Fontina. My mind can't wrap itself around what this is going to be exactly, but it sounds tasty.

By the way, I do not know what is going on the Pearlstone Cafe menus lately. They don't seem to be very accurate on many occasions. I get all of my menus directly from Norman Zwagil, Managing Director of Bon Appetit at Goucher College so I will ask him what's going on with that.

Please leave some feedback about your dinner in a comment or using the Google Friend Connect bar at the bottom of the page.
