Well, I wanted to head off to "low country" but ok, I confess, it was here in the 'Nooga at a place called Food Works near the river and downtown. It's a new place built in an old mill. Lots of bricks and such. Very cool.

It is the new highway (about 5 years old now) that connects Tri-Cities TN to Asheville NC.

I forgot where I was when I wrote that :rollseyes: I divide my time between Knoxville and the Tri-Cities. So I suppose I should say, "I'll pick you up on route 75!"

I was just on the Pennsylvania board, talking to people who used to live in PA, but moved away - do they miss the area? Alot of what they talked about, I can sympathize with. But then, they got into local foods - now I know I'll have to have these things shipped down to me, otherwise I won't be able to survive!

Kielbasa - real homemade kielbasa - for New Year's and Easter dinners. Sauerkraut and kielbasa sandwiches - YUM!

Chipped ham sandwich - this is deli ham, sliced extremely thin, so that it's chipped off the loaf.

Homemade pierogies at the church.

Do all the Catholic churches, and fire halls sell fish dinners during Lent, in TN?

A real Primanti's sandwich.

Homemade nutrolls made by the old women at the Catholic churches and sold a few months before Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

blessings, Shen

***** is a traditional food of many of the Appalachian people in east TN. If you move close enough, you should be able to find some great homemade stuff. The kielbasa, probably not.

Chipped ham - Pal's has that! YUM!!!

Otherwise, ... what's a pierogie, a Primanti's sandwich, or a nutroll?

Edit: Um, evidently the board censors krau - t? That must be a dirty word I've never heard before!

I FINALLY found someone that likes pierogies! There's a Polish food place in Oak Ridge. I mentioned it on this board before, but I think everyone thought I was nuts! No, they don't have the fish on Fridays, either. That's all Catholic stuff. There's Catholics here, but mostly Baptists, so you won't see a lot of those foods.

Oh, to explain...

Pierogies are kind of like stuffed dumplings. But they are better than that. Hard to explain. I love the cheese ones. You can find Millie's Pierogies in some frozen food sections, but they are awful.

In Mass., I grew up in a polish area. Little old ladies would make them and sell them out of their houses. They are a lot of work to make!
