DINNER 218: Sunday, August 6, 2006
Home from Memphis. The trip home was pretty good — we made it in less than 8 hours, including a leisurly stop fo r brunch at Brooks Shaw’s Old Country Store at Casey Jones Village (the best whistlestop between Memphis & Nashville, if their website is to be believed) in Jackson Tennessee (we were listening to a Johnny Cash CD and it happened to play “Jackon” just as we were pulling into town!).
While everyone else ordered brunch items, I took advantage of the buffet. The buffet was huge. It was really, really big. I enjoyed sampling their Beef Tips nâ€™ Mushrooms, Chicken n’ Dumplins’, Meat Loaf, Collard Greens, Turnip Greens, Green Beans, Mac n’ Cheese, Mashed Potatoes nâ€™ Gravy, Banana Pudding.
Once we got home, Wendy & I ordered in for dinner — LaRosa’s for dinner — sausage & cheese pizza for me, Deli Cibatta for Wendy and set to unpacking and relaxing.
