Mmm Mmm Good.

I take forever to decide what to order at a restaurant. I just read through the menu, salivating at every option. That’s why I like buffets, you can get a little bit of everything. (Or more likely, a LOT of everything.) So when the menu for America Eats was released I was practically drooling:

baked-macaroni-ct-1585215-l2Pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches, grilled vegetable salad, mac & cheese, and cooked greens. To top it off,  Jacks Firehouse is making a specialty Booya stew, a popular “big supper” dish from the 1930’s, which has lots of oxtail, veal, soup bons; chicken, tons of veggies and did I mention oxtail? I am dying to try that. Plus there will be spiked lemonade a-plenty. All of these dishes will be prepared by Jack’s Firehouse, featuring the award winning food of nationally renowned Chef Jack McDavid.

Come to the Painted Bride next Wednesday, November 4th, at 6 PM. Grab a plate (or two… or seven) of delicious comfort food, and listen to Pat Willard talk about her newest book, and her journey through American cuisine.
