Today consisted mostly of just taking it easy. The weather forecast said to expect a lot of rain, but we lucked out with a beautiful sunny day.
So Jan, Mister, and I spent a good while sitting outside enjoying this fantastic view and listening to the ocean waves about 1/4 mile away. Jan was reading her Kindle and I was doing it the old-fashioned way, with paper and ink.
Mister mostly laid in the grass waiting for a passing wildebeest, or maybe a gator.
About 3:30 Jan and I headed up to Foley to have ‘lupper’ at Lambert’s Throwed Rolls, another of our favorite restaurants in this area. And they really do throw the rolls at you, and they’re huge, bigger than a softball.
After we placed our orders, we got ready for the pass-arounds.
Pass-arounds are delivered by servers in big bowls as they walk around the tables. My favorite is some of the best Fried Okra you’ve ever put in your mouth. Hot, crispy, and crunchy on the outside, and melt in your mouth on the inside.
Other pass-arounds include Fried Potatoes & Onions, Macaroni & Tomatoes, Black-Eyed Peas, and Apple Butter & Sorghum. And they’re all delicious. The big problem is filling up before your food even gets here.
I ordered the BBQ Pork Steak with White Beans, Turnip Greens, and Baby Carrots.
Jan ordered her favorite Fried Chicken with Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.
Lambert’s is one of those places where you can eat your fill and still have plenty to take home. Our kind of place.
On our way home we stopped off at Books-A-Million to stock up on magazines. Jan and I both like BAM because they have probably the best selection around. Always better than Barnes and Noble.
On another note, I was very surprised to find that we have Verizon 4G here, still very fast.
