My Dad, Fried Green Tomatoes & Smores Pie
My Dad got here today around 6pm and we all went out to dinner at a place called The Texan Cafe. Luckily we got there before the major crowd hit. As we started eating, I noticed a line out the door! And now that I have been there, I understand the line of people waiting their turn.

Good heavens, those fried green tomatoes were out of this world! Since we started with fried green tomatoes and since I knew the meal would end with their famous pie, I figured it would be a great night to totally indulge. So chicken fried steak was an easy choice for my entree!

Now I'm going to go out on a limb here and brag on myself for a moment. I've got their chicken fried steak beat, hands down! The very first dinner I ever made Jeremy was chicken fried steak and all the fixins! Chicken Fried Steak with rolls, homemade gravy, cream potatoes (not mashed, creamed), fresh green beans and corn on the cob! He asked me to marry him two months later and he still says to this day that one bite of my chicken fried steak and he was in love! Okay, so enough bragging on me! :) After our meal we were stuffed so we decided to get pie "to go". Dad got Apple Pie, Jeremy got Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie and I got the Smores pie. Oh my goodness! That Smores pie was unbelievably good!

Yes, people with my personality that enjoy something tend to say things like, "That was the best hamburger I have ever had in my life!" Or they say things like, "That was the worst restaurant I have ever been to in my life!" You know, we use lots of adjectives and expression when we talk. So knowing that, you may not believe me when I say that it was the best piece of pie I have ever had in my entire life. But seriously, it was slap yo mama good! I'm pretty sure my friend Erika could figure out a way to make a replica. After all, Erika does make the best ice cream pie in the whole world! I think she worked at TCBY while in college or high school and took notes! :)

I'm sure going to try and figure out the batter on those fried green tomatoes. They were so good I felt like I was being served by Idgie and Ruth! (if you don't know who they are, you need to watch FGT again! and if you have never seen it, shame on you!)

So there you have it! Dad is here and our tummies are full! Tomorrow the kids are going to play in the backyard in their new blow up pool while I sit under the covered patio and relax. Then tomorrow night we are grilling pork chops, beef sausage and corn on the cob! Of course there will be a huge pitcher of sweet tea too. Oh and I making a Chocolate Praline Cake for desert (thanks for the recipe Erika)! Sunday is "all about me day" aka Mother's Day!! This means my Dad and Jeremy will be cooking breakfast AND lunch! By dinner we will all be sick of eating. Then Dad leaves on Monday morning and my week begins all over again. I think I better soak up any extra help while I can.

Happy Mother's Day!

I want to try your chicken fried steak! I'll have to be sure and invite myself over for dinner sometime soon! :-) Glad you are having fun with dad. The Texan rocks! We'll have to do pie happy hour one afternoon. Can't wait to see your hair!
