I love Andy Griffith. I used to wish I lived in Mayberry. I did have a sweet aunt in Kentucky who kinda reminded me of aunt Bea. My sweet aunt Louise. My how she loved her chickens. I loved the baby chicks & sitting behind my aunt on the side porch pin curling her hair while she snapped a pot of green beans fresh from the garden! Don't even get me started on fried green tomatoes!! Or maters as my aunt would call em'. Simple cornmeal batter & some sweet iced tea & I'm in heaven!! Thanks for sharing Susan. God bless.
I saw a recipe not too long ago for a fried green tomato sandwich. I must try it and boy am I hungry for one right now. And sweet tea ~ one of my very favorite drinks. I like it even better than my diet Dr Pepper!
Or it reminds me of the Waltons! For vacation I have been to Mount Airy NC home of Andy Griffith. What a great time, stay at his home which is a home you can rent for the night...left just like his parents had it. I even ran into Otis downtown! The next year we went to Schuyler VA to "Waltons Mountain" the home of Earl Hammner and the old school is a museum with identical rooms from the TV show and even a Ikes Grocery store!
I did not know that you could rent Andy Griffith's home. That sounds like a wonderful vacation!
The sweet old southern style. Cathy
I am SO sending this link to my sister!!! She is going to flip! I know I did! Susan, you really hit close to the heart with this one!!! I wonder what's in those barrels? A little Southern Comfort, maybe? ;-)
Bentley and I LOVE and read every comment.
