J is for ... Johnny Rockets, the OSU 50 Yard Line, and Tarts With Strawberry Jam

Sometimes food isn't about the food at all. Sometimes its just a cup of coffee and a mug of hot chocolate while two sisters reminisce and plot future world domination. Cough. I mean life domination. Okay, maybe just planning out future incentives for getting more regular running into our lives.

We ended a nice Saturday afternoon at Johnny Rockets.  Back in our college days, we ate a lot of fries, slurped our way through quite a few milkshakes, and listened to our fair share of songs on the jukebox at this Columbus Johnny Rockets.

We started out the day with a snow watch .  Then, when it cleared, we headed for the Ohio State campus, and a stadium tour.  Tinbugs is a Stadium Scholarship dorm alumn.  Sadly, there is no longer a dorm in the walls of the stadium as the space was needed for other departments.

In case you are an OSU fan, here are a few more pictures. Go Bucks!

In the band room.

Is this where Tinbugs room used to be?

Having fun.

Planning Some Running Goals: We Can Do It!

Tinbugs faced a few more snow squalls on her way home.

But she was kind enough to carry a few eggless tarts north with her as a my belated birthday offering for Mom Quiltpeaces and Colonel Mustard. Here's  Mom Quiltpeaces enjoying her tart with a slather of strawberry jam and a dollop of yogurt.  I might have to try that....

  1. Do I remember my university days. Then I could eat as many french fries as I wanted and didn't have to worry about the weight gain. Thank you for a look into your university days. This post was very interesting.
