Is it a Southern thing?

You can order one meat and three side dishes for a small amount of money at many restaurants. Drink can be extra or included. The portions are generous. Many take home a box for one or two additional meals.

Seniors can get a meat and two sides for even less. These neighborhood places are most successful when the patrons get to know each other. One I like is Dalton’s in Nashville. There are huge tv screens but people are mostly eating and visiting with the cook. Good cooking is a conversation starter.

Today is a day late and a dollar short. Fridays are becoming the space between Thursday and Saturday. Was it always that way? The Sunshine Award received today caused a lot of thinking about what posts do we most enjoy. The post about Bessie Coleman (see photo) caught my eye.  Years ago I did a series of paintings about women who affected desegregation of transportation. Even though I had lived in Chicago  many years, I did not know of her fetes until researching for these works.
