Southern Cuisine

August 14, 2009

Since we have journeyed south for our vacation, I am trying to expose the kids to southern culture. They don’t seem to have noticed the accents, but have definitely appreciated the hospitality. On our trip to the beach, we stopped for some local delicacies: chicken nuggets. Not just any chicken nuggets, though, THE BEST CHICKEN NUGGETS IN THE WORLD, I promised. The kids were dubious, but agreed on tasting. If you are lucky, you’ll bump into one of these soon

Gotta love a fast food restaraunt that closes on Sundays. And has those waffle fries. And the one we went to just happened to have a playland, which you really can’t beat to break up an 8 hour drive.

Funny Story:
When I was in Kenya, a fellow Peace Corps volunteer went on vacation to South Africa, which was highly unusual because it was far away and expensive, but cool because it was South Africa. Upon return, someone asked him how it was, expecting, of course, to hear about a prosperous African nation, sobering visits to Soweto, Robbins Island, and maybe even some wildlife. Instead: “Awesome! They had Chick-fil-a! I ate there every day.”

    Is Chick-fil-A really only in the South? I should go more often! It was so good to see you last week. Hope you loved the beach!

    The corporate headquarters are in GA, and although there are some locations outside of the south, it is much more prevalent there.

    Oh yeah–the lemonade is good.
