Orange cinnamon rolls

Randall, I suspect that some that "fresh produce" you're referring to is out of season items, like tomatoes and melons. It may be in season in California and Florida, but it's generally not picked off the vine, in December, in Wisconsin and Minnesota. People are so used to being able to purchase produce out of season (for the area in which they reside), they just end end doing the rest of their purchases at Wal Mart or Kroger. It may not be quality, but in a word - convenience.

My organic farmer kids enjoyed their weekend in Columbus OH attending an ACRES convention. They needed to be among like-minded people to boost their morale. The sustainable food market can be frustrating. Why people continue to buy their "fresh produce" at Wal-Mart or Kroger's is beyond comprehension. It's a battle for the small local farmer.

Thanks Felaine, but half.com doesn't deliver to Canada. I'll maybe poke through amazon or ebay.

We did see a documentary about dining cars, & I think there is something on one of his dvds.

Calling lunch "dinner," os SO farm country.....  My family has always called the evening meal "dinner."  And I always think of the line, "Dinner in the Diner/ Nothing could be finer....la-la-la"

@Patricia: I have a book your husband might enjoy, it's Dining By Rail....he might be able to pick up a relatively inexpensive copy at Half.com.  It tells the history of dining cars, from the first passenger train (with NO dining car) up to the advent of Amtrak. With over 300 of the favorite recipes from I don't know how many railroads....including MY #1 fave....Union Pacific's Barbecued Lamb Shanks.  Die-VOON!

We had potatoes, cauliflower, & broccoli with our tenderloin.

I tend to go with ''dinner'' rather than ''supper'' with so much about the ''last supper'' or ''church suppers'', etc. I grew up with ''supper'' & still use the term occasionally but I like ''dinner'' better.
