Our 2nd stop on the morning tour was the Henpeck Market
from left to right : "cornbread salad" (a 1st for me. Yum!)
very fresh tasting cheeseburger; grilled pimento cheese
the Roadfood gang leaving the Henpeck
the final stop on the morning tour...Sylvan Park ("meat and 3")
I just took out a couple of pieces of pie, as I was trying to save myself a little for the afternoon tour
"life on the bus".... it was like being on a school fieldtrip.
We played games like "Stump the Sterns", cause Jane and Michael had some of their latest books to give away.
There's Michael in a typical pose , manning the microphone..
It sure made the bus ride entertaining !!
After a half hour "layover" back at the Loveless, I am off and running on the afternoon tour.
1st stop was Princes Hot Chicken
The "hot chicken" is on the left; the "mild" is on the right...(the mild still was plenty spicy)...enjoyed both types... now I've got to get back there cause I never did try the Medium!!
Swetts was our 2nd stop
I had the 1/4 rotisserie chicken with butternut squash casserole and creamed corn...along with both some regular cornbread, and some fried cornbread (which I learned looks like a pancake)
The chicken was very fresh tasting. I was'nt hungry at all, so I just had a little taste of everything , and wasted most of it... it was all worth it for the tastes and the pic!
Our final stop on our afternoon tour was Monell's which was near downtown Nashville
There's Mr. Chips, who flew in all the way from Portland, Oregon..
it was such a pleasure to be around him
Monells was a "pass it to your left" family style dinner...
I passed on the catfish, and just had my favorite dish--- some southern fried chicken !! It was another "hit"; nice light flakey batter..
There's lady Jane at the head of the Monell's table
There's Mark Bruno and Steven Rushmore, some very important Roadfood.com administrators, with some of our lovely southern Roadfood gals on the left.. from Louisville, Miss.
So I had fried chicken for 3 meals on Saturday -- breakfast at Loveless, lunch at Princes, and dinner at Monells..
Then I've got to throw in the grilled pimento cheese sandwich and burger from the Henpeck, and I had a complete "Roadfood" day !
p.s. For those of you still with me, stay tuned for Part 3.
Sunday Brunch pics at Ellendale's, and other "apres-Roadfood bus" activities..
My fun did NOT end once the bus pulled back into the Loveless.
