The ONLY reason that I love to go to a buffet for a real meal instead any-other-kind-of sit -down-restaurant is because my choices are ALWAYS MORE than “either” … “or”.
“Would you like “a steak” or “the vegan” special?”
OK… Bad example.
There’s no way I would pick the vegan special.
But… Would I like a small (who am I kidding) a hefty,smartly-seasoned steak, AND a hunk fall-a-part of pot roast, AND three crispy, fried chicken legs, with a tenderly sliced piece of ham on-the-side. YES!
How about melt-in-your-mouth mashed potatoes and gravy, bacon-flavored green beans, with a nice square of buttered corn bread.
Don’t forget the never-ending, ever-quenching fresh water. (One has to stay healthy and hydrated!)
Then for dessert, how about two sliced of moist coconut cake, a peanut butter cookie and a snicker-doodle, too. Maybe, I’ll even have a nice slice of cheese cake with sweet-strawberries as a topping.
I still mourn the closing of Golden Corral. But I have found a place worthy of my hillbilly culinary delights: THE WOOD GRILL.
While I suspect at sometime in the near future I will have to converse with the cooks about more Appalachian twist to thier vegetable offerings. Yes, I know that in doing this the vegetables might not be as healthy … but they will taste a great deal better.
But THE WOOD GRILL in #1 for thier scrumptious selections of meats!
I’m trying out a new dish to add to my collection of quickie store-bought dishes: Jack Daniels Pulled-Pork for sandwiches.
One of my favorite cafeteria meals, when I was teaching, were the pulled-pork sandwiches. This was not something we ever had at home as I was growing up, but I liked them immediately at school. The cafeteria workers said they were easy for them to fix: straight from a container… But I never asked what the name-brand of the container might have been.
I have tried two other brands from grocery stores, but they were not as good.
I hope that this one is the winner. (It is more expensive than the other brands?)
