Fried Chicken and Pancakes

Happy Monday, Y’all!  Over the weekend some of my best gal friends and I set off for Nashville, TN for some good country music and cowboy hat-wearing fun. No girls weekend would be complete without digging into some local good eats (especially when you’re in the south). So, that’s just what we did.

My friend, Kristi, introduced us to this southern-style hotspot, called Monell’s.  It’s nestled away in a neighborhood of the historical “Germantown” district in a big old house, full of character.  This is the type of place where you leave the glitz and the glamour at the door and bring with you an appetite the size of Memphis.

When we arrived we were escorted to our table where we sat with seven other folks – mostly Nashville natives.  We began to chat away while we were served an all you can eat, familly-style breakfast.  There were no menus, no choices to make – we just ate what they were cooking up for the day – which included (you may want to sit down for this): warm cinnamon rolls; biscuits and gravy; cheesy grits; potatoes; corn pudding; eggs; bacon-sausage-ham; spiced apples; fried chicken; and pancakes.  And wow, was it good (with extra emphasis on the oo)!

If you are ever in the area, check this place out.  You’ll leave with new friends, unbuttoned pants, and a grin from ear to ear.
