As expected, the bowling we did was not exceptional, but not quite on the embarrassing level, either. But BOY DID WE EAT GOOD! (We have decided that our new goal when going out of town for bowling is to EAT WELL, and bowl OK.)
DH is a real keeper! Unknown to me (and at the suggestion on SIL) he planned a field trip for Saturday morning to a quilt shop in the area. He spilled the beans on Friday after we got to MS that we were going Saturday. He had even called ahead to check their business hours! If you are ever in the area of SW Mississippi or SE Louisiana, you MUST go to Mama's Quilt Shop in Independence, LA. I managed to spend a good portion of what I had earned the previous week there! And the ladies working in the shop were super-friendly and helpful. Although small, the shop was packed with a fabulous selection of fabrics and great sale prices on some close-out fabric (which I bought quite a lot of!).
Then we travelled to Hammond, LA to eat lunch at my BIL's restaurant, Jambalaya & Co.. YUM! They have the best jambalaya, crawfish etouffee, gumbo, crawfish and corn soup, and the bread pudding is fabulous. It is "fast food" but it is delicious and not very expensive.
Saturday night after bowling we went to The Caboose restaurant in McComb... WONDERFUL steak! And then Sunday after bowling we went to The Dinner Bell. Oustanding Southern style home cooking, all-you-can-eat, while sitting at a HUGE round table with a lazy Susan in the middle. Just spin the center of the table to get what you want. Every time we go through McComb we stop there for lunch.
Are you hungry yet? ME TOO!!
