Where Do You Eat Out? Meme
Well, B. left this morning--dark and early--330 AM. He called at 430 pm Central and was getting ready to take off for South Africa. The flight is 15 hours long--so I am assuming he will be there around 730 AM central--what a very long flight. I hate that I won't be able to speak with him for 10 days. That is a very long time! Hopefully, he will have some access to email--that would be great. Anyway, the kids and I are headed out the door early in the morning to spend a couple days in Memphis--we are excited and ready to go! Graceland and the Zoo--with a side trip to the mall and a day at the in-laws. It will be a nice diversion and will pass the time in a fun way until Daddy gets home. Before I leave, though, I wanted to get this Meme out that Annie tagged me for simply ages ago! Where do you eat out? Here are the rules:
  1. Link to name of person that tagged you.
  2. Include state and country you live in.
  3. List top five favorite local restaurants.
  4. Tag 5 other people and let them know they've been tagged.

OK--we live in a small town--Mississippi in the United States--so I am not going to list local places--I am also going to list all time favorites from other locations we have lived--I hope you don't mind. I'm such a rebel--like someone else I know!!

  1. Lambert's in Sikeston, Missouri--Home of the Throwed Rolls. If you ever get a chance to go here, you should really take it. Yum. Good home cooking--and something called "Norm's Pass-Arounds" that come free of charge and are brought around to the tables and they will dip you some if you want--these include things like fried okra, macaroni with tomatoes, fried potatoes and onions, etc. They also have locations in Ozark, Missouri and Foley, Alabama. The atmosphere here can't be compared. A blast.
  2. Tomato Street in Spokane, Washington--I have dreamed of going back here since we left Spokane 7 years ago--it's the first place I would head if we ever get to go back for a visit. This is a wonderful Italian restaurant with the best Baked Spaghetti. I also learned what Spumoni was here! Delightful! Oh, and I almost forgot about the Strawberry Lemonade--to die for.
  3. Ruby Tuesdays--I love, love, love the salad bar at Ruby Tuesday. Supposedly, our town is going to get one of these--it's been the rumor for a good year now. Oh, how I wish this would happen. The closest to us right now is over a half hour away. This makes me sad. No MSG here, which makes it a fave for hubby.
  4. Jason's Deli--Nothing beats this place--great deli sandwiches and a salad bar that closely rivals Ruby Tuesday. They have a lot of organic foods here. Plus, everyone gets free ice cream. We have to travel over an hour to get to one of these. Also no MSG--big points for this family.
  5. Cracker Barrel--My favorite thing in the world to eat here is the Chicken and Dumpling's, Fried Okra, and the green beans. Yum--I may just have to stop by a Cracker Barrel in Memphis this weekend. The closest one to us is an hour away.

OK, I am supposed to tag five people. This is hard--I think I will tag

Mandalyn --the south, Laura--east coast for now, Christy--the south, Kittyhox the Pacific Northwest (which is where my beloved Tomato Street is), and Military Mommy--California, for now!

You are a rebel... I knew I liked you for some reason (birds of a feather and all that...)
My mouth is watering, sounds like yummy places. Thanks for playing.
Have a great time this weekend!

Hey Jenna..thanks for the tag..I will post it tomorrow. Lambert's is the best!!!'s a good thing I don't live near one. Hope you have fun when you come to town. Where about do your in-laws live?

I've heard of Lambert's, but never been. I love Jason's Deli and I might try Ruby Tuesday's now that you have given a great plug! Hope you got to eat it in Memphis...maybe you even slept decently!
Hope it's fun!

How fun to see Lambert's mentioned! YOu know, Norm had 3 different locations in Sikeston, and because I grew up there, I have eaten in every one of them!

Oh man. You had some good ones! We went to Lambert's when we lived in Pensacola. Phenomenal! Their rolls are the best I have ever eaten. And we had a Jason's deli in Corpus Christi, TX. They have the best chicken salad ever.

Now I'm hungry. And my points are all gone. Oh well, there's always tomorrow. :)

I will let you know when I get mine posted. Thanks for the tag!

I will post mine tonight! Thanks for the tag!!

Wahoo! I love being tagged. I told Melanie at Our Happy Happenings that b/c she tagged me, we must be "bloggie best friends or something," so now I officially appropriate you as a "bloggie best friend or something." Post on it's way! :)

We go to Lambert's every time we go to the beach. One of our faves! Can't wait until October-throw me a roll, over here!!

I too know Lambert's. They have 3 locations: Ozark,MO; Sikeston,MO; and Foley, AL. We lived in Ozark and went there often. Love the HOT ROLLS! FYI: Go there on your birthday, and get a free meal! :0)

I so agree with you about Cracker Barrel's chicken and dumplings. I also love all the old fashioned candy and the cute store in the front of their restaurant. It's dangerous for me to go in there with a debit card!

How I would love to visit Graceland. It's on my list of things to do before I meet Elvis face to face in heaven someday.

Great list of places. Although, I've only eaten at 2 of them, LOL. I sure hope y'all have a fun weekend. My brother lives in Memphis! Small world! :o)

We eat the same thing at Cracker Barrel. Love it! And Lambert's!! Oh my gosh. Jeff flew us into there one night and they picked us up at the airport, took us in the backdoor and rushed our order so we could get back to the airport. We flew there just for dinner. SO MUCH FUN! I use my Lambert's cup to hold my pens at work. It always makes me smile :)

Love this meme!! I may do this one too!! One of my fave things about traveling is finding new, cool restaurants!
Did you know there is a Lambert's in Foley, Al? That's not too far from you!! Yumm....

At May 25, 2007 11:16 PM, Blogger Amberly said...

We love "Jason's Delis" as Abby Grace says! Can't beat free ice cream!

At May 26, 2007 8:59 AM, Blogger Becky said...

Cracker Barrel is one of my faves too. I love the chicken fried chicken. : ) And the SHOPPING

At May 26, 2007 9:57 AM, Blogger gail said...

I think we ate at Lambert's once, so good! There might be one in Gulfshores or Florida that we've been to also?
But I love Jason's Deli and Cracker fact I ate at Jason's deli just this week.

We just went to Jason's Deli for the first time and we did not get any ice cream so I'm pretty miffed right now. I'm going to go there and say "I read on Jenna's blog that y'all give out free ice cream and we didn't get any so I'd appreciate you sending some our way asap." Thanks for the tip!
