Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Last week, B, FW and I were in Atlanta for a little vacation. We enjoyed some good southern food, local beer and plenty of cornbread (yet not nearly enough .. I think I may have a cornbread addiction). So for today’s WIAW, instead of just one day, here’s a sample of some of the great food I had on our trip.
The trip started out with a quick stop in Asheville where I had some of the best French toast ever … but I also bought this candy to keep me company in Atlanta.
We of course had to have some fried green tomatoes. These had goat cheese fried with them!
And shrimp and grits.
And plenty of biscuits and cornbread. Yummmmm cornbread!
One place we went to had an ALL YOU CAN EAT PIE BAR. (video below)
This was just one of our 4…or 5?…plates.
At the World of Coca-Cola, I sampled 100 flavors of soda and other Coke products from around the world!
I also had some great Middle Eastern food one night. This was the chicken shawarma platter.
Another night was bar food. This BLT with avocado and mozzarella was also great.
We also had to try an Atlanta institution- The Varsity. They’re known for their hot dogs. It was a cool, huge fast food place with an old school car hop feel!Yum. While it was a great trip with great food, my belly is ready to be back to normal eating! But my mouth is watering reliving them for today’s What I Ate Wednesday! Especially the cornbread.
Some questions for you:
- Do you like southern food?
- How do you like your cornbread- sweet? Savory?
