But, we aren’t going to blog about that tonight or the Amish Bingo game we made up. Wait for it.
Instead we are giving you another Blast from the Past…
This has nothing or everything to do with a blog about gardening. The first time I ever ate at a certain chain restaurant who have rocking chairs out front for your leisure to wait for a table (which is way cool), I was still a carnivore. I can’t remember what fried protein item I ordered, but the thing I do remember distinctly to this day revolves around the “Vegetable of the Day.” Their menu clearly stated “vegetable of the day” and not “sides.” I ordered.
Me: I’ll have the the fried carcass, the fried okra and the collard greens.
Waitress: You get one more with that.
Me: Okay. What’s your vegetable of the day?
Waitress: Macaroni and Cheese
Me: What part of that is a vegetable?
Waitress: Blank stare
My Mother: crawled under a table
My Sister: Spewed sweet-tea out of her nose.
Me: That’ll be fine
What do y’all think? Can we grow mac-n-cheese?
