IT WAS GOOD!!!!!! - UPDATED, Finally!!

Just a small teaser....stay tuned for updates on our day in Natchez, MS complete with photos!

Jeffrey and Keetha

UPDATE - Y'all I finally am able to sit down and update our lunch at the Magnolia Grill, which you may have heard about here. We started out with a nice appetizer of baked goat cheese in marinara sauce served with toasted bread.

It was amazing y'all! Could have made this the entire was that good!

Keetha decided she'd like a nice, small salad for lunch so she ordered a crawfish and spinach salad. It was a salad composed of baby spinach (yum!) topped with fried crawfish tails (we are in the South you know! We fry everything!!), bacon, cheese, and finished with a parmesan and peppercorn dressing. One small tidbit...the fried crawfish, there were AT LEAST 1-1 1/2lbs. of them on this salad!!!

Very tasty looking! Very tasty looking indeed!

That was what was left AFTER she finished eating! Way too big for a single meal. I mean, we could have shared this salad and both of us would have been stuffed!

I, on the other hand, opted for a grilled chicken bacon club served on a warm kaiser roll dressed all the way. By that I mean lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, mayo, and mustard. Oh, and the sweet potato fries as a side....they were every bit as good as they sound!!!

The aftermath...

Our waiter asked if we'd like to see a dessert menu when he cleared our dishes...HA! To paraphrase Dierks Bentley, WHAT WAS HE THINKING!!!! There is no way, and I mean NO WAY that we could have finished our Diet Cokes, much less a dessert, too!

Well, after this amazing lunch, we strolled around a small city park right on the river bank atop a high bluff in downtown. Go see some of the great photos from the rest of our morning here.

Oh, I almost forgot...on the way out to Windsor Ruins, we shared a pecan log roll (this was getting close to 5pm, so we needed a sugar pick-me-up!!!) but, alas, we failed to snap a photo of this jewel.

So that, my friends, was lunch in Natchez, MS. Stay tuned for more....we have a picnic planned for sometime this weekend featuring wraps made with most of the ingredients you read about here. It's sure to be great!!!

Y'all come back now, ya here!

I had almost forgetten the pecan roll! (smacks self on forehead) I do wish I'd taken a photo of it. Suffice to say, it harkened back to the good ole days of Stuckeys.

yum, yum. Was it better than the crawfish salad in our usual place? And that pecan roll...where did it come from. Not stuckey's. I know not Stuckey's. Aren't you too young for Stuckey's?

The pecan roll came from a place called Old Southe Trading Co. or something to that effect. It was located right next to, actually in the same building, as Cock of the Walk resturant. Y'all please, please, please beg Keetha to post up her new lawn's sure to please!!!
