Missed International Talk Like A Pirate Day

We didn't know yesterday was International Talk Like A Pirate Day until we had posted our blog yesterday. I was a pirate for Halloween last year. I had the cast on my leg and with my black boot cover, I looked quite the part.

We were camping last Halloween.  It was so much fun!

Mama loves this photo of me.
 The campground is busy this week with RV clubs from Missouri.  Yep, we are surrounded by Missourians.  We talked with a few ladies the other night and they knew our little town.  They are from Warrenton.

Sunday, the folks got haircuts.  Mama's last haircut was in Ohio and Dad's was in Texas. Dad hasn't needed a haircut because of the crazy hair lady who didn't know how to use scissors.  This haircut went much better.  After their haircuts they ate at City of Champions.  There were limited reviews of the place, but one said they served authentic Mexican food as well as burgers.  It is a sports bar, so there were several TVs on. Mama was disappointed that the Rams were not on, but she later learned they came on at 3 p.m.  Mama got confused and thought we were still in Cleveland when she saw the Browns playing.  Dad reminded her we were in Bear country.  Mama is silly. This weekend, the Rams and the Bears are playing against each other.  We will keep a low profile in the campground.  LOL

 Anyway, back to the meal.  Mama decided to order a steak burrito because it is made with skirt steak.  She was disappointed in the flavor of the burrito. It was pretty plain.  She added salsa to it and that helped, but it is not something she would order again.  She felt it needed melted cheese on top or maybe melted cheese in the burrito.  It had lettuce and tomatoes and unmelted cheese in it.

Dad ordered a BBQ burger.  It came with onion rings on top.  He had a choice of half pound or a full pound.  He chose a half pound.  He said it was really good.

The burgers do not come with fries.  They decided to order an appetizer.  They ordered fries with BBQ pork on top.

The fries are the waffle type so that made them easier to eat.  They both liked them.

All in all, it was a good meal.  Mama was disappointed in her meal, but Dad said she would have loved the burgers there.

City of Champions on Urbanspoon

The folks came home after lunch and they decided to just rest. We watched the Rams game and the Rams won. That hasn't happened very many times recently, but we have a new coach and he is good. During half-time, the folks decided to order a pizza. Scout and I got to go with them on the pizza run.

They decided to order from Maciano's Pizza & Pastaria because it was nearby.  They ordered a Chicago Style Works pizza online, but then the restaurant called back and said it didn't come in Chicago Style.  Mama changed it to thin which was probably a mistake since it had so many toppings on it. 

16" The Works - Maciano's original, generous portions of sausage, pepperoni, ground beef, bacon, mushrooms, onion, greeen olive, green pepper, and black olives.
Maciano's Pizza & Pastaria on UrbanspoonThe pizza was good, but not anything special.  We felt it was expensive.  With tax and after using a 10% off coupon, this pizza was $28.95.  It was quite large though and after our dinner on Sunday, it provided Mama with two meals.  We would not order from them again because there are so many other pizza places to try and we were not impressed by it.
