Just good home cooking… cafeteria style…

Fried or baked chicken was our choice of meat… although there were lots of choices of entres… veggies… salads… desserts…

Mashed potatoes with gravy(me)… beets(me) and stewed tomatoes(me)… It was delicious!…

Bobby had chicken too… but, with green beans and macaroni/cheese…

Cornbread or rolls… and a small dish of Blackberry Cobbler to share…

Today we went with our friends to eat at King Fish  header-logo … a restaurant that is 68 years old… (1948)… located along the Ohio River…

The food was exceptional!…

BIG Fish Sandwich… White flakey meat… rye bread/tartar sauce… Garden Slaw and homemade Onion Rings… plus Hush Puppies…

Our friends had been the week before… and got us coupons to use today…

How thoughtful was that!…

We were then taken to Jeffersonville, IN to Schimpff’s Confectionery…
