At work we all had lunch today at Claim Jumper for a co-worker’s birthday. The food is pretty good, but they’re very well known for serving outrageously large portions. The appetizer salad is larger than I could eat in one meal… and that’s just the appetizer! Today I had a snow crab and chive quiche with a side salad. (the side salad was normal sized.) There were a variety of meals ordered among us from BBQ chicken pizza and Mandarin chicken salad to a huge cheeseburger and meat loaf with mashed potatoes. I believe their specialties are down home comfort food. I’ve had fried chicken and mashed potatoes before that was very good. The’re also known for their Chocolate Motherlode Cake. It’s a huge slice of a dark chocolate 6-layer cake. Yikes! I’ve never ordered it because I’m always too full for dessert. I’d never eaten at a Claim Jumper until about 5 years ago when we made the trip out to the one nearest Newark… which was Concord. One recently opened in Fremont. I think I can count on one hand how many times I’ve ever dined there… it’s not that the food is bad. It’s just exhausting to eat there.

From Yahoo! News:
LEVANT, Maine – A Levant man told police he lost control of his 2003 Lincoln Navigator after he was startled by a spider on Wednesday morning. James Lee, 28, was trying to get out of the SUV when it smashed into a tree. He walked away with a bloody nose caused by the air bag.

That would so happen to me.
