Southern Living presents Off the Eaten Path by Morgan Murphy. Favorite Southern Dives, and 150 recipes that made them famous.
17 states across the South and the dives and the food that made us fall in love with them.. Along with a few signature dishes from each place, Morgan gives us addresses, phone numbers and even GPS coordinates. As well as some interesting local attractions to check out.
I love this book. and after doing a vegan post yesterday, I was asked to do this one by someone who doesn’t eat anything unless it moos, clucks or oinks. Preferably with a Mason jar of sweet tea and a lot of cream gravy. So this one is for you.
I have pretty much been to all of these places! My favorite will always be The Dinner Bell in McComb, Mississippi. all the food is home made and southern. We all sit at a big table with people we don’t even know and the lazy susan style table is piled high with greens, macaroni and cheese, biscuits, fried chicken and pies to die for.
OU boy is not just a fan of the Chicken Fried Steak and Cream Gravy, I personally believe that if you cut him he would bleed gravy and sweet tea.
Have you eaten at any of these spots? What was your favorite?
This one is available at your library probably. If it is you should really get it! Food and travel, what tops that?
