Just when writing about food seemed like a good thing to do – Kaboom! Nashville went dark. Literally. The storm took down trees which downed power lines and adding one more fear to a long list…what if everything in the freezer thaws out? …

It’s Time

If you are of a certain age, and from the south, and ever went out for a bite to eat after the prom or a movie date in high school then you know exactly what this is.
