You'll recall that yesterday I was pretty pissed off by how limited my lunch options were. Today I went a bit further afield to find something good and cheap.
I have driven by Barb's Pasties and Pizza in Clawson, MI dozens of times, and I have always intended to stop. Today I went to look at a house in Royal Oak at lunch (more on that later) and Barb's is right on my way back from downtown RO. I was tracking the elusive pasty, a northern Michigan delicacy that traces its roots to miners of English descent.
Kids, this beats fast food. I paid $4.15 for a beef pasty, plus tax. Gravy (passed) is $.50 extra, and chicken is also available. This thing weighed at least half a pound, arrived warm, and was full of spicy, fragrant beef and potatoes. I am stupid for waiting so long to go get one. This is homemade fast food with real style, you just can't eat it every day if you aren't burning calories like a Cornish miner. On the other hand, I bet I could out-sit one of them any day. Bring it on!
