Fat Daddy's LiL' Piglet meals!



Forsyth MO – A recent visit to Fat Daddy's for a luncheon engagement dealt out a nice surprise for this overweight gnome. I went there with a friend named Mary to eat, but didn't really look forward to yet overly large meal that would better suit a younger and trimmer working man. Just too many calories! Actually, any meal over 700 calories would be pushing my self imposed limits. Losing weight, for us older people, can be a real challenge. No, I wanted something that was modest and after asking my server, I discovered it! Down towards the bottom of my menu was a section called LiL' Piglet Meals. In that section was an item called 'Piglet Pork'. A small hamburger sized portion contain ¼ pound of smoked pork, along with a side of fries for about $5. Wow! The taste was awesome, I didn't destroy my diet (~650 calories) and the whole meal deal was very affordable! Next time your over that way, please give this selection a try!

Hong Kong Express opening in Forsyth in November!


What is it with Forsyth Missouri and eateries? At my casual estimate, there were eight places to eat in a town of just over two thousand! Now we will have another 'oriental styled' venue come later in the fall.

As a venue, I admit to avoiding any type of restaurant that serves a buffet styled menu. I'm a bit leery of food that sits for hours and hours before someone comes along. Some food must be kept cool while others have to be maintained at certain levels of heat. Either way, things can (and do) go wrong. Thus, I do not plan to go to this location very often unless someone I'm taking to lunch insists!

As Forsyth has had a Oriental/Mexican restaurant for some time now, I could not help but wonder at the apparent duplication. I would have preferred to see something like a Wendy's or even a Shorty Small's as they offer a few pasta dishes that are excellent.

Well, time will tell, as they say. I hope to visit this venue after they open and will make a followup report.

The Mouse Pad for all your computer needs!

Mouse Pad, 113 Main St, Forsyth MO 65653
Over the years, the Mouse Pad has been located in a number of sports. I first noticed this business on Hwy 160 next to the White River Plaza. It was then relocated to a spot on Hwy 160 near Charlie's restaurant. Today, this rather 'mobile' enterprise is situated right across from Save Alot at 113 Main Street in Forsyth!

I was able to talk briefly with the owner, a man named Jamie Johnson, and he informed me that they do all sorts of general computer maintenance and repair along including computers sales at great prices!

The Mouse Pad can be reached by calling 417-546-2648 during normal business hours. Jamie can also be reached on his cell phone at 417-207-6776 in case of emergencies.

Best burger and fries in Forsyth MO!


In my view, an old fashioned hamburger and fries is tough to beat almost any old time. And, the 'Kountry Burger' served up at the Long Horn Family Dining venue might just qualify as the best of the best offered up in my small town of Forsyth Missouri!

The Longhorn Family Dining restaurant is open seven days a week at this time, from 6:30 AM to 8:30 PM, although I would call them at 417-546-9751 to confirm, just in case.

Economy Screen Printing in Forsyth MO!


Economy Screen Printing, 163 Main Street, Forsyth MO.
A recently opened shop located at 163 Main Street in Forsyth MO. called Economy Screen Printing, does professional screen printing on T-Shirts and all sorts of other object like cups, hats mementos and more! The store is run by Martha Rudnick and Susan Lawrence both of  which can reproduce custom designs and logos; either from material a customer might bring in or from scratch. The cater to everyone; from individuals up to and including companies or organizations that might need to orders exceeding one thousand pieces. As you can see from the pictures of these T-shirts, almost anything can be created and at very reasonable prices!I was very impressed with just how detailed and beautiful the work that they do is close up!

In the near future, I was told that a customer will even be able to come in and create their own custom T-shirt and then print it on the spot! That would be very cool indeed!

Also, the shop can make available limited spaces for aspiring artists to set up shop and display their creations on a monthly rental basis. (And, while I decided not to post that amount here, I was very impressed with how low it was)! Note that this will not be a flea shop concept, but rather a place for a select group of artists to gain exposure. For the limited few people who can take advantage of this opportunity, ( I think I was told that there are only about 6 to 8 spaces available), they will need to act promptly as the spaces are already being reserved. as for advertising, I was told that the owners may even consider an open house type of event to help draw in additional traffic! If you have an interest in this, or would like additional information, the shop can be reached at 417-546-0631 during normal business hours.

In closing, I gained the impression that this business will likely do very well. The equipment I saw located there appeared to be top end. At the time of my visit, they were getting ready to fulfill an order consisting of a thousand t-shirts!

Please make it a point to stop in and to check them out. There were many very interesting items on display that I didn't cover here, but hope to in the future...
