Hey, Why Didn't You Tell Me?

Infamously-fast fast-food chain Rally's (possibly "Checkers" where you live) sells a pretty fair chili dog. Why did I not know this? Yes, I admit it, a few-and-far-between chili dog is one of my guiltiest pleasures.

For that matter, there's a drugstore chain not too far away that sells what appears to be a decent kale salad. ...But give me twelve hours before I rule on that.

(12 hours on: yes. The kale salad is made of win and freshness. What brave new world is this, anyhow?)

Haven't checked the menu recently, but Hardee's used to have a decent chili-dog...and my favorite chili-cheeseburger.

Tam mentioned that they did, which I had not expected. I very rarely eat drive-through food, almost never, so I do miss some gems form time to time.

Thanks Roberta, I haven't contemplated a chili dog in months.

Two more places for me to scout...

Kale salad? Please tell me more. I love kale cooked up like turnip greens or collards, but it is oh so hard to find in South Texas. Do you have a kale salad recipe?

This was uncooked, a nice green salad with kale, red bell peppers, cabbage and carrots.

--Walgreen's drugstores locally have added a seriously good fresh-food section, possibly in response to criticism over "unhealthy" choices -- but they have had the wit to go for tasty, somewhat off-beat choices (three versions of stuffed mushroom caps, for instance).

I use kale to make colcannon: mashed potatoes with ham and (slightly) steamed kale added in, served with butter (or healthy margerine) and chives. Yum!

Thank you so much. Now to the local hippie store to see if they have kale.

There's a Skyline Chili at
3524 86th Street West, Indianapolis, IN
I stopped in there earlier this year. Got a chili dog, but got not enough chili, not enough dog, and too much cheese. Same with the spaghetti.
