Mama's Farmhouse

After asking around we finally found a couple of locally owned restaurants serving southern fare.
Mama's Farmhouse is Southern Cookin'- Family Style, aka all you can (and shouldn't) eat.
A little lacking in the atmosphere, but enough food to put us all into a food coma.
The Drinks were served in charming Ball jars. Good idea for a southern dinner or picnic.
Biscuits and corn muffins to start served with maple butter.

Then..........more food than you can imagine. Chicken fried steak, fried chicken, turkey with dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, gravy, corn pudding, macaroni and cheese.
And then banana pudding or peach cobbler to top it off!
Another night we got catfish @ Pop's Catfish, which they said they get from Mississippi .

I just heard about a new movement called Meatless Mondays. For our health and to reduce our carbon footprint. Some restaurants are embracing it with entire menu's going meatless on Monday's. I like the idea of it being a certain day and just making it happen once a week. Not too much to ask of us all but what an impact we can make. Check out the website for recipes and inspiration!
Meatless Mondays (I wonder if that'll ever catch on in Tennessee?)
