AUDIO BOOK REVIEW:
Shanghai Girls by Lisa See
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Very interesting life story of 2 sisters in China in the 1930's. How they transition over or not transition to American life.
One sister is a thrill seeker and grab life and fly. She is an optimist. The other sister plays is safe, but does not necessarily make that the best choice.
Follow their lives through their teens until they are middle aged.
Over all, I found it interesting, informative, yet mostly depressing. I almost gave this novel a 3 because of the ending leaving us hanging. But, aha! There is a sequel, "Dreams of Joy", that I have already downloaded. Hopefully the sequel will clean things up and may be more upbeat.

Kitt's Kornbread Sandwich and Pie Bar, Jefferson, TX
My rating 4 out of 5
Another great casual restaurant in this little town of Jefferson. Another restaurant set in an old building, dating back to 1880's.
Staff was quick, efficient, and down to earth.
Simple menu, but I found plenty that I would like. All sandwiches are made with sliced cornbread. No worries, this cornbread stays together when you hold the sandwich and bite into it.
HUNGRY FARMERS STEW: A slightly thickened vegetable soup with chicken and sliced sausage. Blue tortilla dunked on top with shredded cheddar. Good flavor, just a slight bite of heat.
BROCCOLI SALAD: Excellent! Probably the best we have had. Not overloaded with dressing. Broccoli was in tiny little pieces as well as the other vegees, for easy eating. I'd love to take some home!
THE TEXAN: This was chili on top of sliced cornbread. Nice hearty lunch. Chili was average. Not great, but not bad. This may be my new way to eat chili. Maybe call it "Cornbread a la mode"? A scoop of chili over cornbread.
THE IRISH: Their version of a Reuben. Not a big, thick sandwich. Is fine for lunch, but for a dinner, you'd want to add some sides to fill you up. Corned beef was very tasty, what little there was. A slice of Swiss cheese and fresh red onion. The combo was really wonderful.
I would definitely return and maybe try The Redneck, a fried bologna sandwich. My Mom used to make fried bologna quite often when I was a kid. A substitute for pork roll, that could be difficult to find sometimes.
