We're having pine floats...toothpicks and water.
We went out during the core of the day to run multiple errands and it so happened that we, um, had to be near one of our favorite eateries. Today is Wednesday and on Wednesday their special is ham hocks and white beans. Well, more like huge wooly mammoth-sized ham shanks and white beans. Glenn came in this morning and announced that our dog, Harley, said we had to go to Luke's for lunch. Yeah, right?! She can read the calendar
I think she had bones on her mind.
At any rate, we did go to Luke's and we did have their immense lunch plate, which also included a delightful slice of sweet white onion, a cake-sized chunk of homemade cornbread, and all the iced tea we could swallow. As usual, the ham hocks/shanks were tender and delicious and the white beans were perfect.
Unfortunately, we didn't have room for a slice of any of their gorgeous homemade pies for dessert.
P.S. We even talked the waitress out of the bones from the plates of two other people who left before we did. Harley is going to think she's died and gone to doggie bone heaven.
