A true southern date

Last night my husband comes home from work and says to me "we are going out tonight....."

"Hooray!!! This is exactly what we need after a week of 15 hours a day of work", I thought to myself.

My excitement left quickly with the second part of the sentence.

"..... for catfish."

Catfish?! What?! Seriously?!

Well a date is a date so I got ready.

We went to a restaurant called Top O The River. This was our second time there (I had my first sweet tea experience there).

We ordered turnip greens, pickled onions, fried dill pickles, broiled catfish, and fried catfish. Our dinner also came with cole slaw, fries, hush puppies, and corn bread.

We had so much fun!!! Surprisingly I liked it all!

I don't think I will order catfish again... but I didn't hate it.

It was so fun doing something for the first time with my husband!

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

New memories, baby cast iron skillets of cornbread, and love. - Monica

I tried posting on this the other day, but my phone is mean.

This post was HILARIOUS. I had to read it to Clay. I'm a terrible Southerner because I don't like catfish, fried pickles or sweet tea!

I probably wouldn't eat catfish again.. but it wasn't terrible.
It was so so much fun!
