Scenes From a Restaurant in the Deep South

We stopped for lunch yesterday in Magee, Mississippi.

The place was not a chain so it had that going for it.
A huge place with "home cooking".

Lookie what I found for sale on the counter where you pay your check.......

I suppose that's the author posing with a "fan"......the "fan" is the hairy one in the framed photo.

Folks, I can NOT make this stuff up!  8-)

Seen Today....

Cajun Pickles, Various Picked Hot Peppers, Numerous Hot Sauces and Cajun Seasoning Mixes, Crawfish Boil Mix, Cajun Chili Mix and Fried Green Tomatoes Batter Mix.......and that was only one of many displays of such in the store.

 Either this Mardi Gras' leftovers by the adult beverage displays....

Or already getting prepared for next year's celebration......

Sign on the Grocery Store door......with a display of 5lb. bags of Crawfish Boil Mix and Sacks of Taters as you enter the store.

Happy Easter y'all from down by the Bayou!
Hope your holiday is as spicy as you like it.

I'm off to find me a Crawfish boil.....


No RC Cola In Sight

Breakfast of Champions Southern Style!

Yes, what's left of my waistline is going to hell this trip.......

If Duct Tape won't Fix It, Then Blow It Up!

Just hanging out with some guys who said they'd pose with me for a picture......

Funny lookin' suits, no?

Later on, I was attacked by a rabid Duck Dynasty fan with her Hubs and 2 Kids in matching Duck Commander shirts.

Would I make this stuff up?!

For anne marie.....

This post is for you, anne marie ........

Dolly and I were just hanging out, comparing "assets" yesterday.
She's a lot taller in person that she looks on tv.
She wanted me to tell ya "Howdy" and she wishes you were here.

It was a shame though that there were no "Romeos" around...... ;-)

That Dolly......she's such a kidder!

This Week on the Dining Table

  "You never hesitate to tackle the most difficult problems"

Ok, so I am bringing back this feature due to popular demand....ok, maybe not so much popular demand but it gives me something to fill up this space with one day a week.
So sue me...... ;-)

Last week, sit down for this, I had NO meal plan.

And yes, I hear the sound of fainting all across my readership as you let those words sink in.

I just bought some groceries(on discount or sale of course)and pulled stuff out of the freezer and leftovers in the fridge and just went where it led me.

Monday--pizza(homemade and frozen varieties), salad
Tuesday--leftover kielbasa & caramelized onions on rolls, green beans
Wednesday--salmon, asparagus(had to finish using up what I bought 2 weeks ago)
Thursday--leftover chicken & asparagus risotto
Friday--gourmet burger(gotten this week on clearance), creamed spinach
Saturday--leftover homemade spaghetti sauce, rigatoni, salad

And I did ALOT of grocery shopping last week.
4 trips to 3 different stores.
Catching lots of "deals" this week like MANY canned tomato products, spicy brown mustard and ketchup(for grilling season), Rotel, using a rain check to get Tide for $1.47 a bottle(unheard of price!!!), many fresh pork products and other meats on clearance for the freezer, butter on sale, many soda  & water bottle packs for donation to #2 Son's Jazz Band Festival tomorrow, etc.

All in I spent $174.00 on $318.72 worth of groceries this week.
I am up to $295.33 of food spending and we are only halfway through the month!

I'll not be spending any grocery $ this week though and that will get us to the last week of April.
So we aren't in horrible shape with the food spending.....yet. lolz

And I have NO MENU again for this week.
Yep, I am flying by the seat of my pants.....

All I can say is that Sunday night was a little Mexican something or other.  8-)

So what's on tap at your house this week?
