A good road trip is as much about the trip as the destination. Stopping for quirky little places along the way only add to the experience. I am so glad we stopped at this one. The proprietor, Neal Smith, was just delightful. Several buildings were packed full of treasures but I was drawn to all the piles outside. Especially his collection of antique iron beds set up in the yard and leaning against multiple trees. If you're ever in the area be sure to stop and see him. He's 8 miles north of Ellijay, Georgia on highway 515. Tip...make sure you take cash...I forgot that part.
Below are photos of my new favorite thing to eat...fried green tomatoes! Our dear friends from La Belle, Florida are vacationing with us. Lucky for us every member of the Luckey family is extremely talented in the kitchen. I had a private cooking class right here on vacation as they taught me the ins and outs of frying up a batch of these babies. We sliced up 20 tomatoes total and ate them all. The kids were standing by the stove waiting for them to come out of the frying pan because couldn't cook them fast enough! I think we'll have to head back to the farm stand today for another bucket of these little green gems. As one of the kids so aptly put it, "they are a little piece of heaven in a hot and crispy, green circle".....oh my, so true!
