There is a magical place in Catawba Valley called The Homeplace. Catawba Valley is about 1 hour and 45 minutes from where I live, but who cares? Jeff and I were excited to get away and as you can tell from the picture below, it is as beautiful as it is tasty!
The Homeplace is a home style down home cooking restaurant that was originally a farm house. The food comes to you family style and heavens it is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad to for a diet. Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans (don't be fooled, they are cooked in bacon), pinto beans, corn, cole slaw, roast beef... I am not even done. There was also peach cobler with ice cream.
It is not as if you get a set amount and then you tag out. No no, they keep bringing you what ever you want. More and more of whatever you want. I will not even begin to tell you how much of all of those items listed above I had. But I can say that I was unnnncomfortable. Although I can't say that even at my most uncomfortable that I would have turned down another spoonful of mashed potatoes. Judge away.
