I Forgot How Much I Loved Biscuits

Last week I was in Nashville visiting my uncle. It had been a long time since I'd beenLink to the south, and while there are things I can do without, I sure do love me some Southern cooking.

I hope to post a little more about what I ate, as it ranged from the simple (several of our DINNERS were less than $25 for two or more people) to the sublime.

I have to say, though, that out of everything I managed to consume in the country music capital the biscuits from the Cracker Barrel restaurant (yes, you read correctly) were what truly captured my heart. They were really, really fucking good.

I'd make fun of you for liking the Cracker Barrel biscuits, but I'll just argue that the biscuits at Red Lobster are much, MUCH better.

OMFG, Cracker Barrell that takes me back to days at the mall back East. I loved that cheese. My haven't we come a long way from CB to Pt Reyes!

Wished I had known you were going to Nashville. I would have sent you to the Germantown Cafe....they're clients of mine. (I maintain their website.) Supposed to be real good.

Honey, good biscuits is good biscuits. When you find 'em, devour them. Did you hit and meat-and-threes? You just stoked a desire for grits so I'm about to go and rustle some up.

Sadly, I feel the same way about biscuits from KFC. Maybe its just that I am in another country and miss them, but what I wouldn't
GIVE for a nice, buttery biscuit. Probably my first child and a $10 bill.

Hey, I have fond memories of Cracker Barrel. Don't let anybody mock your love of good biscuits, no matter where they come from.

Yum! We were just talking about biscuits the other day and now reading your post...I'm thinking I should make some.

Next time you are in Nashville, try the biscuits at the Loveless Cafe.

No need to fly for your love of biscuits, try the ones at The Elite Cafe on Fillmore. Devine!! They even sell them frozen to take home; though I'm guessing these aren't as reasonable as the Cracker Barrel's.

Ummm... Joy-Joy, did you perchance become acquainted with the supreme goodness that is *Hashbrown Casserole*?!?

Bordering on sounding like a lunatic (not a far stretch for me), I believe that it may well bring you one step closer to knowing god.

Back in my younger (more metabolically speedy) years in The Sunshine State, the following was how I started (more or less) EVERY Sunday.

The Cracker Barrel’s Country Boy Breakfast

Steak (medium rare), Three Eggs scrabbled w/ cheese, Fried Apples, Hashbrown Casserole (x2), Grits, Sawmill Gravy, Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits, real Butter, Jam n’ Apple Butter


Maple Pancakes

Three Buttermilk Pancakes 100% Grade A Pure Maple Syrup

Suffice to say, it does not lack in sodium or caloric value.

Fatemeh has, in fact, witnessed this awe-inspiring gastronomic spectacle firsthand… and she approves.
