Scheduling problems have forced us to close on Wed, Aug 30, but the moving truck can't be at my home in NY until Sept. 8. It is going to be such a tease to close on a brand new home, and then have to drive all the way back to NY for another week.
Anyway, I'm just really excited and had to share with someone. Thanks for listening.
Have a safe trip down ... and back up ... and then back down. Sounds like a couple of busy weeks for you.

My friend's brother lived there while he was in Law School and absolutely loved it. He's back here now (NJ) and would love to go back. He came home with a little accent and everything...adorable!!

I'm not going to say what they look like to me. I'll get in trouble

Basically, they are deep fried corn bread; usually with an oniony taste; they come in many ... erm ... shapes. I love 'em; have had them all my life. Some of the foods people claim are unique to the South (grits) are actually found in other parts of the country. Hush puppies have to be fried in just a certain way, or they'll end up being too hard. You can find them in the frozen foods section of grocery stores, if you want to take some back to give others who haven't had the the experience of eating them.

I love hush puppies! Of course, I grew up eating them when I lived on the coast. I usually only eat them when we take a trip to the coast. The seafood restaurant that's closest to my house has that oniony flavor in their hush puppies and I don't like it. Blech! But the ones we get when we go to the beach are great. No onion flavor.

Default My Stamey's Rating

If you're looking for upscale ambience you won't find it there. If you're looking for GREAT North Carolina barbecue, you will. The best I've had in years. The unique flavor is from the wood smoking. It's tender and delicious.

The hushpuppies are also really, really, good. Homemade on site. ( A little oniony flavor, Niki, but definitely not too much)

The cobbler was excellent. DH had the peach, I had the strawberrry. ( No cherry today)

All in all, I give it a thumbs UP! Thanks for the prompt, Lillie. Much enjoyed!

Regards,

Cassie

Well, we left for NC early Tues morning, closed on Wed, and drove back to NY Thurs before Ernesto came to town. We were so tired we didn't get to do anything we had planned, but we did eat dinner at Elizabeth's in Oak Ridge on Wed night. YUM.
The moving truck will be here on Fri. Sept. 8th, and we are leaving Sat. morning. The moving company said they will be there on Tuesday, the latest. I don't really know what we are going to do with ourselves between Sat and Tues, but I guess we will just have to find those hushpuppies. Thanks again for all the good wishes, I'm sending them right back out to y'all
