Southern Dinner & Working Man’s Lunch


Last night = laid back, perfect Friday.

We had planned on going to a restaurant, but when we saw the full southern buffet at Fuqua Friday and Fullsteam (!) beer, we knew we had found dinner.

Dirty rice, maple collards with squash, sweet potatoes, sausage gumbo, and fried catfish. Southern food is awesome.

Fullsteam had their Southern Lager (way stronger than a lager in my opinion) and Working Man’s Lunch. Both were excellent. I had three:)

Dessert was some kind of raisin bread pudding with heaven cream on top.

We ended up hanging out until the very end, chatting it up with some hilarious friends. Post Fuqua Friday we watched No Strings Attached. I thoroughly enjoyed the lighthearted film and I was able to keep my eyes open until midnight. Friday night success.

    This just reinforces my belief that maybe I need to live in the south. Catfish and dirty rice don’t just Appear Anywhere in Minnesota. You have to seek that stuff out. Looks like a lovely Friday night!

    I never thought I would, but I actually really enjoy southern food! It’s so different than what I grew up eating and was raised on, but I love going to the south and tasting everything.
