Finding a hidden gem....

 Driving home from Miami on Friday, I-75 starts to look like a parking lot and we're hungry. Time to pull off? Sure looked like it. The sign on the Interstate said there was a Perkins and that looked good to Brad. (I wasn't so sure but when you're a vegetarian, chances are anyplace has a decent salad. At worst, a grilled cheese sandwich.) Along the way to the Perkins we drive by THIS sign and can see this produce. It only took a second for both of us to say "Wanna eat there?" Sure thing!


 The food was very down-home and the dessert looked just like my grandmom's house at Christmas time. I couldn't resist a peanut butter and jelly on HOMEMADE white bread. With a mound of potato chips on the side, I felt just like a kid. We shared a piece of strawberry rhubarb pie that was oh-so-good. We meant to look for the number of the exit but forgot! I think it was Bonita Springs but not so sure. I plan to look next time I'm heading south.





Coconut cream pie, lemon meringue, red velvet cupcakes and homemade cookies.
