So in Spokane, everyone starts feeling a little crazy come mid-February.

It's still really cold outside. And in most cases, there's still tons of snow on the ground. And everyone gets a little stir crazy.

So yesterday, in an effort to get out of the house and have some family time, we went on a taste testing extravaganza of local Spokane cheeseburgers.
First we went to Dairy Queen. Single cheeseburger - mustard and ketchup only please. Then Sonic. Dicks, Jack in the Box, and D'Lish. We ended at D'Lish because it's in the downtown mall and there would be someplace warm to sit and eat.
I cut the burgers into five equal pieces. Then we tasted. And commented. And discussed the subtle nuances of hamburger preparation and condiment distribution.
The verdict?

The best cheeseburger in Spokane can be found at Sonic. (By a long shot.)

The worst? Dairy Queen. Can you say cardboard?

(Then we came home and spent the afternoon playing with Wii fit, which we had bought before we started buying cheeseburgers... Had to work off all that cheeseburger-y goodness.)

It was a fun day.

Ethan said this morning when he got up "Yesterday was the best day of my life."

I'm not sure I'd go quite that far, but it did get us out of the house.


  1. Oh now that is a very creative idea. I'm going to borrow it. :) How fun.

    That is really funny you guys did that. So what about Zips? How can you not include Zips in burger testing? I think fries testing would be good too....Robi

  5. Such a great idea, Cathy- you guys are the funnest family (I mean on the West Coast).


I love it when people talk back...
