One thing everyone in the Basin loves is eating out. Yes, you'll find long lines at the registers in the grocery stores, too-but everyone here must do a LOT of freezing and saving food for later, given how long some of the wait times are at area restaurants and how long the drive-thru lines are at our fast food places. So when another location pops up, that's going to be fast food-it's a GOOD THING because it adds places to choose from and lessens lines at the ones already here. So I was surprised to learn that one of my personal favorites is building a location right by my house.....



The most exciting part is that they've semi-recently gotten into the breakfast game, with choices like the Bacon Egg and Cheese biscuit or croissant, the sausage egg and cheese, and my wife's favorite--the maple bacon Chicken croissant. There's a lot to choose from on their breakfast menu, including one of my all-time favorite sandwiches for lunch or dinner--the Baconater.



They also have plenty of sides, too-including my favorite--seasoned potatoes. Of course, I'm talking about none other than WENDY'S. It'll be great to start getting some food choices closer to home rather than driving down to Loop 250 and heading into Midland to eat. The workers said it would be open around the end of September / the start of October. We got Chuck & Patty's when they opened the Jack's Gas Station on the corner, and now we'll have a Wendy's too. It also looks like they are getting ready to begin construction on a small strip mall next to Wendy's. Good things are happening for all the residents out here in housing they've built and ARE GOING to build out here.
