Missing You, Adventure Man

I’m eating here, all alone, in a booth for one, surrounded by a million other customers. Son and his wife are at work, and Sonny’s isn’t their favorite place. It’s low brow, it’s folksy, and oh, how I miss southern barbecue when I am back in Kuwait.

The waitress, Tammy, is country and sweet and cares about all her customers, I have the fried catfish with Sonny’s baked beans and a side of cole claw . . .I have my non-sweet iced tea, I have my Sudoku . . . missing you too much, Adventure Man:

  4. Zin – watch out. US BBQ probably started as a way to make less expensive meat more palatable – it is often pork, and generally the meat is cooked long and slow, and a sauce added.

    But they also have barbecue chicken, turkey, and this place has catfish, which isn’t really BBQ, but very Southern. Now, they even have Ceasar salad with grilled chicken, and it is GOOOOOD too!
