Are We There Yet ???? Pea Soup Anderson's

Driving, driving, driving...................

We drove from San Francisco to San Diego, and then back.............

Mostly it's all on the same road - the famous I-5, or, as it is known in Los Angeles, "THE FIVE"...  through California's Great Central Valley... that feeds all of America...

Productive - yes... Interesting?  Well, not so much.

BUT THEN - - a sign - -

50 miles to PEA SOUP ANDERSON'S  .....  well, wowee, why didn't you tell me?

25 miles..................10 miles....  and then, finally.................




Actually, believe it or not, its a CHAIN - - a PEA SOUP CHAIN !!!!

 And, as the placemat assures you, there's one near you !

 
 
So - what do they sell?
 
Well, according to Wikipedia, they sell 500-600 GALLONS of split pea soup DAILY !!!!
 
YOWEE.........
 
and a whole bunch more 'comfort' foods.
 
And outside there's a big windmill you can see from far away................
 

The soup............................ green, isn't it?
 the obligatory 'kitschy' stuff:

 The "pea" jokes:
 
 
 
 
SO - YOU MIGHT ASK - DID WE EAT PEA SOUP ?
 
WELL, ACTUALLY,
 
WE USED THE RESTROOMS AND HEADED UP THE ROAD...........
 
AND I WILL NOT TOLERATE ANY "PEA PEE"   JOKES !!
 
'TIL NEXT TIME - THEN WE WILL SHOW UP HUNGRY

Remember it well! Not as a destination, rather a welcoming homey sort of place. Our kids put their faces through the Sweet Pea and Pee Wee sign... got pictures of that somewhere. Fond memories. Thanks for sharing.
