California Barns

Tonight will be mainly a picture post of California Barns.  I just had a picture wandering through my thoughts and had to share it. I bundled it with a few more 🙂

California Barns, Central Valley, California, barnsI took this picture on Sunday afternoon. The weather was beautiful and you could clearly see the hills lining the Central Valley in the distance. I have always liked old barns and this one is a beauty. You can also see a few more barns in the distance.

Old Barn - Tracy, California - Barns - Wooden Barn - California Central ValleyI often pass this barn on Saturdays on my way home from running errands. Each year this barn becomes a bit more dilapidated.

These pictures make me glad I live close to farm lands 🙂

The future Sacramento Cracker Barrel was in the news today as they announced that they will soon start hiring for positions at the location on Howe Avenue in Arden Arcade.

Sacramento Cracker Barrel, California Cracker Barrel, Arden ArcadeThe Cracker Barrel website now shows the Sacramento location in their Locations Opening Soon section. They list a time frame of Summer 2018, but it is expected that they will open sometime in June. Depending on the timing I may be out of the country when they open. However, I do plan on making a visit there as soon as possible after it opens.

Cracker Barrel Jobs, Sacramento, Howe Avenue, California Cracker BarrelThe Cracker Barrel employment site also lists multiple openings, so they are already taking applications. They list openings for Host, Server, Retail Sales, Prep Cook, Grill Cook, Backup Cook, Dishwasher and Night Maintenance.

Cracker Barrel Menus, Cracker Barrel, Breakfast all day, Comfort FoodI am looking forward to seeing a menu like this in front of me as I get ready to place my order.

Chicken Fried Chicken, Cracker Barrel, Old Country Store, Food FixHowever, I probably won’t need the menu. I am already looking forward to seeing a plate like this. I can almost taste the delicious Chicken Fried Chicken as I think about it. Perhaps I might change up the sides a bit, but these are what I usually order.

Who wants to go to Sacramento with me when the Cracker Barrel opens?
