Hams and Jams

Just back from a Nashville TN road trip.

After a 10-hour drive down, then unpacking the car in a torrential thunderstorm, it was time to take in some of our favorite pig-out dining spots.

Always a must go-to place is the Loveless Café
Quote from their website:
The Loveless Cafe remains unchanged in the quaint country charm and good cooking that has made it a landmark in the South since its doors opened over half a century ago.

Nationally acclaimed and frequented by celebrities, world travelers and local appetites alike, the Loveless Cafe serves up award-winning country ham and red eye gravy, real Southern-fried chicken, and Nashville's favorite scratch biscuits with homemade preserves cooked right in the kitchen. The Loveless story has been told the world over, from Gourmet Magazine and Bon Appetit to U.S. News and World Report, CBS Television, and People Magazine.

I don’t even look at the menu anymore. I always go for the BLT—but this BLT is made with fried green tomatoes!

And their biscuits are out-of-this-world delicious!

I brought home a Butter My Biscuits! pack.

And if you have never tried the Fried Dill Pickles at BB King’s Blues Club,
you don’t know what you are missing!

                                        Fried dill pickles plus a pulled pork sandwich — 
                                                              pig-out dining goodness!

Added bonus—live blues band playing that night!

This little piggy sighed wee, wee, wee, all the way home through 10 more hours of driving.

Headed north next ……
