Big Pie In The Sky
Greetings from Atlanta! We are here for my niece’s Bat Mitzvah. When I say “we” I’m referring to our family plus my husband’s five brothers and sisters, my mother in law and her 17 grandkids (two are mine). :)
When we arrived Thursday night, we met one of my husband’s brothers and his family at Cracker Barrel. I had only been there once a long time ago but I had heard the biscuits were good.
They were! But, that’s about all I can say. Everything on the menu was either fried or covered in gravy. Now, you know I like my fried food but I guess I wasn’t really feeling it that night. I ordered the Fried Shrimp Platter which came with Hushpuppies and three sides. I choose corn (guess I should at least eat some veggies), Cole slaw and hash brown casserole (for my husband).
I ate the shrimp and some corn and Cole slaw and called it a night. We checked into our hotel and realized that my husband had taken the wrong suitcase. It looked EXACTLY like ours! I guess you really do need to check the tags! So off to the airport we went to switch the bags. After a successful switch, it was back to the hotel to go to sleep.
Since we are not used to east coast time, we work up at like 11:00AM. Breakfast had passed so we decided to all meet for lunch at Taco Mac. They had hot wings on the menu. I ordered them (DUH!) and split them with my husband.
They had like 6 levels of heat and we choose #4. It was spicy and delicious but definitely not too hot (like the crazy Volcano Wings I had in Mammoth). If we go back, I think I’ll go for it and try #6!
I ordered fish tacos with Cole slaw for my entree.
They were just ok. They didn’t have hot sauce (except for Tabasco which doesn’t count in my book) so I didn’t enjoy them as much as I’d like. I need to start carrying mini bottles of Cholula around with me.
We all went bowling after and I bowled my best game ever: 135! Go me! After bowling it was time to get ready for services for my niece. We went to the temple, attended services and ate dinner at the temple. I wasn’t allowed to take photos there so no food pics. I had a bit of hummus, pita, tomato cucumber salad and matzo ball soup.
After awhile we came back to our hotel. On the Atlanta episode of Man V. Food, there is a pizza place called Big Pie in the Sky. We decided to order one and eat it at the hotel.
Behold the 30 inch pizza:
Here is my hand above the pizza so you can see the size:
We had it cut into squares because there were a ton of us so the slices were smaller than the usual. I ate two of them.
A very LARGE empty pizza box.
My mother in law brought mini red velvet cupcakes too. I ate one of those too. I had to restrain myself from eating another. Good thing there’s no scale in my hotel room.
Any exciting weekend plans?
