Have you ever planned your going out to lunch day around the supermarket samples they give out? We have.

It was the grand opening of a new grocery store here in town, many years ago. My Mom, my Sister, and I decided we wanted to go check it out, since it was supposed to be unique and different from our regular store.

We heard that there would be people giving out samples of their food products in all areas of the store, so we figured why not! We’d go around to all the stations in the store, sampling what they had, and it would be enough for our lunch. And, it was. It was fun to do, and yes we bought quite a few of the items, too.

The store wasn’t all that great, though – just another grocery store, but arranged pretty well.

One thing I remember from that day, besides the food, was that I saw a 7 foot tall lady. I had never ever seen a woman that tall in my life. I’m not sure she was really 7 feet tall, but she towered over everyone. She looked like a very nice lady, and she wasn’t a store gimmick trying to draw in customers by wearing stilts. She was just a regular shopper. 🙂

Mine will be a meal we had at a restaurant just last Wednesday.

We got together with family – seven of us all together, and went to a new to us BBQ restaurant called “Evie Mae’s”. It was in a little suburb town right to the west of us here, and is a BBQ place that is fairly new.

We didn’t know what to expect, since none of had ever been there before, but we figured it’s BBQ, so were sure there would be plenty of good food to choose from.

The list of what was on their menu was printed in big letters on brown paper up above the cafeteria style line. There was even a little chalk board that said ‘Free Beer – 21 and Up’.

As I was standing in line I was taking photos of all kinds of things, including the swinging doors the led off into the kitchen part of the restaurant. The doors had small windows, and advertising stickers pasted all around.

After getting through the line with our trays of yummy looking BBQ, we found a seat. There were lots of wooden picnic tables inside for seating. There were also picnic tables outside.

Here’s what I had to eat. Smoked sausage, sliced brisket, coleslaw, pickles & onions, bread & butter. It was very good.

After eating and having fun talking with my family, my grand-daughter wanted to go exploring, so off we went walking all over the restaurant. She was having a great time, and I was taking more photos.

The photos above show a large black smoker/cooker with some pictures above, and the name of the place. A large oil painting of a steer, a ‘caution-watch your step’ yellow sign (because there was a step down there, some tall stools to sit on around a wooden bar area, and off a side area was an old fashioned box Coca-Cola cooler. Another part of the place had a meat market where you could choose something to take home & cook later.

While some of us had desert of chocolate pie and chocolate cake, I went outside for a little bit. I found this huge pile of chopped wood that I suppose they use for smoking all their meats for the BBQ.

Anyway, that was our fun day out with the family at the BBQ restaurant. I’d go back again some day. 🙂
