"Farewell" Sunday February 19
I left Nashville in a blinding snow storm. Well not really, there was an inch or two of snow on the ground and it was snowing but a half hour into my drive the snow quickly turned to rain and even that eventually stopped as I entered Alabama.
I made it to my final lunch stop of the trip
The Birmingham branch of Dreamland
I reallly wanted to hit the original Tuscaloosa branch but the only way I could have done that was to skip brunch an of course I wanted to say goodbye to my Roadfood
friends- well. eventually I'll make it back to Tuscaloosa.
Lots of interesting Irony at Dreamland today.
There was a guy sitting across from me with his wife or girlfriend who sounded
exactly like Larry The Cable guy
. 7 years ago when I was in Tuscaloosa I was getting directions to Dreamland
from someone who looked just like Larry the Cable Guy.
Bread and Sauce arrived first
the half rack shortly thereafter.
I said it before when were in Mobile. The sauce was very addicting however the ribs just simply don't compare to the smoked goodness of the original in Tuscaloosa.
I hesitated to order dessert knowing that the banana pudding was a disapointment when I visited the original location back in Tuscaloosa.
Well, some more irony is heading my way
I remember noting that the banana pudding at Dreamland paled
in comparison to the nanner pudding at Two Sisters Kitchen
in Jackson. Well this was actually a respectable dish of nanner pudding. Not on the same level as Miss Myra's but on this trip the banana pudding at Two Sister's Kitchen took a turn downhill and paled
in comparison to that at Dreamland
I had some time to kill before heading back to the airport and got a cup of coffee at O' Henry's in suburban Main Street Homewood. Afterwards I headed back to the airport for my flight home. After just a 25 minute layover in Tampa St Pete I was back home just after 11 PM. Epilogue
and foot notes
probably towards the end of the weekend.
