Putnam Inn- Greencastle Indiana - Good Food

 Last night our daughter and son-in-law invited us to dinner at Putnam Inn in Greencastle, Indiana. I have driven by it often and was excited about the adventure. After being down for so long with this surgery, everything is an adventure. 

It is a small, local restaurant and known for its buffet from what I hear. Friday and Saturday night they offer a seafood buffet as well as the normal buffet. The prices are a little over what I would normally pay, but the food was good. My husband and daughter decided to get the Seafood buffet as my son-in-law and I decided to just do the regular buffet. 

The regular buffet included plenty of choices with salad, meat choices including some delicious fish, potatoes, broccoli and cheese casserole, rolls, and many other options. With the seafood buffet, you were also offered all you could eat crab legs, frog legs, steak, and other options. There is a small dessert bar as well, which offered pies, cakes, cheesecake, banana pudding, and ice cream with toppings. We were all full when we left .

Very clean restaurant, food was hot and delicious, staff was pleasant and very helpful. I feel overall I would rate this a 9/10. The only reason that I did not give them a 10 was that the restroom was out of service and the prices were a little over the top. The regular buffet was $22 and the seafood buffet is $42. Those prices are a little more than I would normally pay for that type of meal. 

Nice experience overall and I would go back for a special occasion. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend that you visit the Putnam Inn.

 Recovery from foot surgery is going better than expected, I guess. My last appointment was a week ago tomorrow. That put us at the 5 week mark and the podiatrist suggested that I begin weight bearing, which usually does NOT happen until 8 weeks. He wants me to start walking a bit on it and then next week run a few errands and the next appointment I will go into my tennis shoe.  NEVER has been this fast!!!

I will say that as excited as I was to begin weight bearing, I am realizing that just because I am making these strides, does not mean that I am going to be walking easily soon. I am finding that I am having more swelling and more pain now that I am weight bearing. I have graduated to a surgical shoe instead of the walking boot and I am using the knee scooter more. I truly don't care for the knee scooter.

My granddaughter had her first filling yesterday for a tooth that she had a cavity in and she was a great patient. The ladies at the dentist office were really impressed with how well she done. She was given some nitrous gas to help keep her calm, but she was such a trooper. She told the assistant that she was brave because her mammaw was with her. She is my girl!!

I have enjoyed reading all the posts about the moon and seeing all of the photos you all have taken. I am hoping to get out on the porch later today to take advantage of probably the last couple of warm days as it looks as it is going to be cold the next week or so and I am sure we will be seeing the white stuff soon. 

I just realized that I have no new photos to post here. I guess I will use one of my older profile photos that I particularly like of myself. 

I hope you all have a blessed day!

Mother's Day

 Mother's Day can be such a beautiful day for many people, but I always think of the moms that have suffered losses of children, either ...
