Forsyth Senior Center looking to add full time cook!

Forsyth MO. - The newly appointed Center Administrator, Jo Crosley, at the Forsyth Senior Friendship site located at 13879 Hwy 160, in Forsyth MO. informed me that they were actively seeking a full time cook (valid as of April 9, 2018)! This is a salaried position that does include benefits. Listen up! This could be a great opportunity for the right individual. I've eaten there numerous times  over the years and have always found the food served there to be of the highest quality!

If you have what it takes, are a hard worker and a great cook, please call 417-546-6100 as soon as you can!

Lunch at the Long Horn in Forsyth!

Forsyth MO. - As it had been sometime since I'd gone out anywhere for lunch, I decided to visit the Long Horn Family Dining eatery located on Highway 160 in Forsyth Missouri on what was a rainy early spring day!

Prices were accurate as of March 2018
It would be very correct for me to state that I'm rather picky as to what I consider a good lunch food candidate. One of my definite favorites is a good old fashioned hamburger and fries! The Long Horn offers a 'Kountry Burger' menu item that is really your basic third pounder along with a generous serving of French fries! 

Great food and fair prices in a venue with a family ambiance.

Charlie's restaurant is for sale or lease!

Forsyth, Mo. - Strategically located near the intersections of Hwy 160 and Y is a  beautiful business that closed in December of 2017 and is currently available for sale or lease! Formerly, Charlie's Ribs Steak and Ale, this was a popular venue for over a decade. Today, in March 2018, it could be a great fit to the right business enterprise.

While, it's no secret that the large square footage proved to be something of a problem for profitability by the former management, the over all structure has been well maintained and perhaps with a little creative thinking, could be turned around quickly.

My thinking for this building would be of a divide and conquer sort of approach. That is to say, if one were to separate the interior into two businesses, then possibly it could work. I was thinking that one side could still be a bar/eatery while the other side could be turned into offices or possibly a 5 and 10 sort of store.

The property was currently being offered by KW Commercial and was represented by Jim and Chris Bolin who could be reached at 417-224-7445.

Easter Dinner at the Mug!

Forsyth Mo. - Easter falls on Sunday, April the 1st which is also April Fools Day for 2018. (An interesting juxtaposition what with the celebration of the rising of Christ and all). At any rate, John's Frosted Mug will be serving up a great meal consisting of ham, scalloped potatoes, corn and a cupcake for just $7.50. However, two things are unknown at the time I posted this; what the serving times are that day and whether or not the venue will sub in something like spam for the ham. After all, it is April Fools Day!

You can find out for yourself by calling to check the serving time at 417-546-4149 or by stopping there anytime after 11AM. Their address is 15861 US Hwy 160 in Forsyth Missouri!

Frosted Mug on St. Patrick's Day!

Forsyth MO. - Saturday, March the 17th is Saint Patrick's Day for 2018! Saint Patrick's Day is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland. But, for most Americans today, it is a time of celebration, green beer and lots of food food!

To that end, John's Frosted Mug will be offering up a great 'feast' that will include corned beef, cabbage, new potatoes, carrots and rye bread for only $7.50! And while I'm unsure as to the color of the beer, they do have a one of a kind Irish Elf which I've been told is 'well hung'!

Frosted Mug has an opening!


Egg prices have gone way up! Why?

Forsyth MO. – Anyone who may have desired to purchase a carton of eggs may also have been shocked by the recent rise in the price! Back in November of 2017, I bought a dozen eggs for at the Country Mart just seventy nine cents! Then right after the New Year, the prices shot up and to around $2.49 in mid march 2018! Wow. Why exactly is that?

Iowa State University professor Hongwei Xin, who directs the school’s Egg Industry Center, says domestic and international demand for U.S. eggs have been on the rise.

“We are at 273.7, about 274 eggs per capita per year,” he says of U.S. consumption. “This is the highest of the past 38 years.” And he says it’s expected to continue climbing.

So, increased demand is one factor! Another key factor relates to the Avian flu, which have decimated flocks world wide.

The good news is that U.S. egg producers appear to be increasing the size of their laying flocks, which ultimately will increase supply and potentially push prices down, this according to the USDA.

Xin also says it’s important to take the long view of egg prices. From 2010-2014, the average price of a dozen eggs in the first quarter was $1.22 per dozen. That was before the avian flu outbreak wreaked havoc on the industry, so the projection for the next few months is below what consumers have weathered in the recent past.
