Chick-fil-a Thursdays

When Landon and I were college buddies, we would eat dinner at Chick-fil-a on Thursdays (i'm pretty SURE they were thursdays before Crusade...right?) Except I think this was a long-time tradition with Landon and his guy friends (long before me) and once they started calling me "Sheels" I became "one of the guys" and got to join them for things like beers, cigars, shooting shot-guns and Chick-fil-a. Our local Chick-fil-a was in a mall food court. We would sit beside a large window that opened to an ice-skating rink below. So we ate our food and watched the sometimes awesome but usually hilarious folks ice skating.

When we lived in Illinois, we didn't have a Chick-fil-a. It was very sad. But no worries. When we moved out here we re-instated Chick-fil-a Thursdays. I like it. I always forget that it's Chick-fil-a Thursday until I start to think about what i'm going to make for dinner. I like to give Landon the option of what could be on tonight's menu vs. a world-famous chicken sandwich.  Like last night, I said, "I can make tomato n' barley or we can go to Chick-fil-a". Sounds like a no-brainer, huh? He almost always says, "I don't care, you decide". And for me it is not a difficult decision. Chick-fil-a wins over barley every time.

I love Chick-fil-a Thursdays.

I could also write a post about what I love about Chick-fil-a as a company, which is a lot. Except I wish that as a Christian run company they would be better stewards environmentally. I know that I really shouldn't be eating their food because their chickens live rotten lives in factory farms and they serve their beverages in quasi-recyclable styrofoam. I know...

We love Chick-fil-a too! We really like to support them as a Christian company because they honor the sabbath and are closed on Sundays. Plus the food is great!!

i love chick-fil-a too SO MUCH! they helped pay for college, employed me all through high school, and in a round-a-bout way got me to kenya. not to mention how they care so much about saving marriages, taking care of orphans... BUT, i have always been really sad about their wastefulness with those styrofoam cups (and other things). it's something i think about a lot when i'm in america and eating chick-fil-a and have never been able to feel good about.

and we had chick-fil-a tuesdays in college. :)
