Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen Is Now Open In Pottstown

Today, Wednesday, November 16th, is the grand opening of Popeyes in Pottstown.  The former Taco Bell is once again busy!  Judging by the parked cars and the line in the drive thru, so far so good.  I even saw people walking down High Street carrying Popeyes bags, taking food home.

Popeyes features Cajun specialties like red beans and rice, Cajun rice. Cajun fries and perennial southern favorite sweet tea.  And of course, CHICKEN with a Cajun flair!   Popeyes even has a light menu for those watching their waistline.

Hillandale Farms Installing Biomass-To-Energy Plant

You have probably seen Hillandale Farms eggs in your local grocery store.  This forward-thinking Adams County egg producer is investing in a revolutionary new green technology that will use 80,000 tons of manure to create energy!

Hillandale Farms is one of the nations leading egg producers/suppliers.  It is always gratifying to see large companies looking at ways to reduce their carbon footprint.  This new energy plant will create enough energy to power 2,500 homes a year! 

Hillandale Farms is planning on expanding their egg production facility in Adams County by another 1.5 million hens.  This means 5 million chickens will call Tyrone Township home.  Utilizing animal waste to create power is amazing.  This new process will turn manure into steam that can be used to heat and cool.

Another added benefit will be 13,000 tons of left over nutrients from the biomass process will be recycled into fertilizer or livestock-feed supplement.  This will contribute to a 3.5% reduction of nutrients and a 4.4% reduction of phosphorus being released into the Chesapeake Bay.  Those percentages are for the entire state of Pennsylvania in just one production facility!

The plant is expected to be up and running by the first quarter of 2012. 

If you are environmentally conscious, you may want to consider including this egg supplier in your weekly shopping.

Had one of these bad boys tonight!  Thought maybe I was at Olive Garden instead of Applebee’s.   

Florentine Ravioli with Chicken
Sliced, grilled chicken served over spinach & ricotta-stuffed half-moon ravioli in a roasted garlic Alfredo atop a blend of sautéed mushrooms, bruschetta, roasted red peppers, red onions, and fresh spinach. Served with toasted garlic bread.
$10.99
 
It was very filling, well executed and the pasta was nice and tender.  The flavors blended well.  Plenty of chicken to go around.  Can’t believe the price.  It is also a choice on the 2 for $20 menu! 
 
Fantastico!
