On Saturday, we went with Ken's dad and some friends to a small town Rantoul, Kansas--population slightly under 200 people for dinner. One of the gals that went with us has family in the area and they knew about the place we went. Next door to the Fire Dept. was a cozy restaurant called "The Soft Rock Cafe." The porch had cute planters made from repurposed items, potted plants on little chairs and other cute stuff sittng around the porch. The cafe is a well known place by the locals for a great buffet dinner! They were serving a catfish/ boiled shrimp and fried chicken buffet. There was fried potatoes, green beans, cabbage, baked beans, cream gravy and two types of bread. Then.....you could move on to the salad bar part of the buffet! There was tossed salad with fixings, COLE SLAW according to Ken, chocolate and vanilla pudding. THEN...there was dessert! Chocolate cake, chocolate cherry cake AND brownies to choose from. Oh, Yea was it good!!!!! Down the road from the cafe was this "junkyard " for old airplanes, I tried to get a pic of the name but it came out blurry. Bummer!!! Anyway--on both sides of the road were these planes just sitting there. According to Ken's Dad, they take all the good parts from the old planes and use them on planes that are still in service. In the pic above, off the the left in the valley you could see alot of parts and pieces of planes.
