If you weren't in Ozark overload yet, I'm force-feeding you more! One of the hightlights of my trip was embracing the time honored tradition of gorging myself on some down home cooking. I am sure that I stood out like Paul Reubens at church picnic, but I proudly whipped out my trusty camera anytime I encountered one of these gastranomical glorys. Below is just an excerpt:
My mom's "black bottom" cupcakes. Chocolate cake, creme cheese and chocolate chips!
Home grown tomatoes growing along our fence line.
The best of the crop. Except for maybe that one.
Cherry Danish y'all!!!
Silver Dollar City's skillet potatoes with white and sweet potatoes, peppers, onions and corn.
My heaping helping. Sweet tea in the glass of course.
This sounded too fucking good to be true. If you are unfamiliar with a Cherry Mash, you are due. I say no thank you to the sugar free version, but I just had to stop in.
During my visit I was invited to a special by-invitation-only tea party.
