1983 and 1994 are my favorite years. The Tommy's Burger is truly bombastic.

Did you ever go to Jack's Classic on Coldwater and the 101?

We didn't do a lot of those. We had the ground beef/macaroni/cheese/corn casserole, but not too many Minnesota Glorp dishes.

Interesting that your gastronomic sophistication peaked abruptly in 1986.

Hm, it doesn't seem that way to me. I think because I was putting in foods characteristic of the year, but the variety ia additive. But yeah, that was a good food year.
