Well another day and MORE pie and some repeats.
After lunch with Povety Pete I went in search of 2 Pie places in Nashville that were close to The Pharmacy. Geraldine's Greatest Chess Pies and Sweet Creations. I drove up and down Rosa L Parks Blvd before I realized that Geraldine's was INSIDE the FARMERS MARKET. D'OH
So i parked and walked inside, this was a cool spot for some wonderful food, there was BBQ, Korean, Asian, Indian, Cajun, Woodfired pizza, cupcake shop, the buttercake babe, and ver other eating places. I looked all over and could not find Geraldine's. :-(
I asked the lady at THE PEACH COBBLER FACTORY (really good cobbler sample) where Geraldine's was located and was told she comes in on weekends now, so.... TRAVELINMANNED
Oh well the driving rain and winds did not dampen my spirits nor the idiots who kept crashing around me on the rain slickened roads.
off to stop number 2 Sweet Creations and only 2 minutes from the Farmers market. Pulling into the lot all signs looked promising, ther was a sign out front professing best pecan pie in Nashville, and several versions of pie available. I parked walked across the parking lot to find...
The lights off and the door locked... TRAVELINMANNED TWICE!!!!
So without letting Steve get into my mind, I called and audible and drove down Jefferson Ave towards Fisk Univ. There on my right was a smokin wonder Ooh Wee BBQ and a sign that said "Fresh Hand Pies $.99"
So I swung in and ordered a peach and an apple, they were out of peach, so I took an apple one to go. I should have drove off when I heard the beep beep beep of the microwave oven from inside.
The pie was on the small side but for $ .99 what can you expect. How about being good?? The ends were nuclear hot, the middle was ice cold, and it tasted like they fried it in last weeks used MOTOR OIL not vegetable oil.
I wanted to like OOH WEE BBQ - but EPIC FAIL.
So on my return to Lebanon I was still in search of dessert and...
yep you guessed it Sunset Family Restaurant.
So all in all not a bad day, now waiting out the hurricane force winds to blow the trash cans down the street, thank goodness they postponed beggars night, those kids would have been blown away like Dorothy tonight.
