Today was our monthly or pseudo-monthly staff lunch. It is usually based upon whenever there is a staff person who has had an anniversary serving at the church. You should see the excitement the staff has at the idea of eating lunch together. This was the case, and we all happened over to the Rib Crib.

I won’t go into the details of our conversation, because then I would turn into one of those preachers who people are afraid to be around because everything that is said could turn into a sermon illustration. However, one topic of interest during our conversation related to the local cuisine and in particular how famous Springfield is for its cashew chicken.

I appreciate Susan sending this article to me, an attempt to educate this Missouri interloper to the finer things in Ozark dining.
