Which hand held immersion blender should i buy?

Have a braun, works well, i have used it for about three or four years, it was one of their better models when i bought it. GF has cuisinart smart stick, works good too, and fairly cheap

Scraping the barrel for local Grand Prairie eats

No, it doesn't look to be the same, ours is ran by a local guy. it's pretty casual, but i find it very good, and fresh. i recomend the morrocan salad, or lots of good sandwich choices, and always some different quiche choices. let me know what you think of it if you make it there.

Scraping the barrel for local Grand Prairie eats

if your looking for lunch, go to jeffery's cafe, 106-10605 West Side Drive, Grande Prairie - (780) 402-8024, very good lunch fare, closed for dinner i believe, they have another location but i believe it's catering only.
tokyo ichiban is reliable for sushi, i eat there often, jax in the podollan hotel is ok, and jakes down south by the service plus in is decent, although i haven't been there in quite some time.

jeffery's is excellent, the others are decent. Trust me when i say people don't move here for the fine dining....
