Kevin Sack of the NYTImes.com wrote an article about the Farmhouse, the restaurant at the Inn at Serenbe in Palmetto, Georgia. Renowned Atlantans, Steve and Marie Nygren, started it. It sounds like I need to plan a day-trip…….. at least for the fried chicken.
Today was unusual in that I met my brother-in-law for lunch at Matthews Cafeteria in Tucker, Georgia. We have hardly ever gotten together in 19 years and he said he owed me for lunch although I could not remember the last time I had bought him a meal. Anyway, he was adamant about it so I agreed even though I had asked him to meet.
Matthews was, in the last year, on one of the Food Network shows, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. You can guess which one it qualified under. After getting berated by my brother-in-law for getting a big piece of baked fish instead of country-fried steak, we found a table and caught up with each other’s lives. I had fried okra, greens, scalloped potatoes, and tea. It was all good and the workers were friendly. Here’s an article from the AJC about the show and filming at the landmark restaurant.
We have been homeschooling our children for ten years. If you have an interest, check out the Georgia Home Education Association, the ultimate resource for Georgia citizens seeking to have a Christian homeschool.
Sometimes a homeschool parent can feel overwhelmed and could use encouragment or a new idea. This page links the the support groups for Gwinnett County. Here’s the Walton County support groups. And the one for Barrow County. And Jackson County. And Hall County. You can search for any county in Georgia too.
The Georgia Department of Economic Development has a cool website that gives ideas about what to do throughout the state all year round. You can put in a town or zip code and search a few different ways.
