About 1pm Jan and I drove over to the Gilbert area to have one last meal at Joe’s Farm Grill before we leave for Vegas on Saturday. And this time we went in a little different direction from our usual fare.

After having tried the Garlic Pesto Fried Green Beans last time, and loving the pesto, Jan got the Pesto Chicken Sandwich with Swiss, Roasted Red Pepper, Grilled Mushrooms, and farm-made Pecan Pesto, as well as another order of the Pesto Green Beans for us to share.

While instead of my usual Sonoran Dog, I got the Gouda Garlic Bacon Burger Stack.

Made with half pound THICK burger (all natural, fresh, chuck, cooked pink), bacon, roasted garlic, imported Gouda cheese, grilled red onion, beefsteak tomato, pickles, house made Caesar dressing, on a toasted bun, it was a complete feast. In addition we both got salads as our sides.

And of course we both got one of their homemade Strawberry Lemonades.

One thing we’ve noticed is that one of the family members is always circulating around, talking to the customers. and being sure they’re happy. Good business.

Our last stop before heading home was the nearby Sam’s Club to pick up a prescription and a few other items.

After a nice nap on a full stomach, a little before 6pm I went outside and dug out my Porter-Cable Air Compressor to top off the tires on the rig and the truck.

I’ve had this one since January 2011 and it’s still going strong, and has no problem taking my front tire up to 105#. I fun the rears at 100#.

However Sears no longer sells this under their name, but you can buy the Porter-Cable version from Amazon for about $110.

A great deal!

Everything went fine until I tried to finish up with the rear duallies on the driver’s side of the rig. For some reason my locking air chuck wouldn’t fasten tight enough to keep air from leaking out around the valve stem, letting air out faster than it was going in.

So tomorrow I’ll have to pick up a new air chuck at the nearby O’Reilly’s.

And along with that, we’ve got a 1pm lunch date with Dick and Phyllis Schell at Oregano’s, an Italian place over in the Tempe area. Really looking forward to it.
