Tellico Plains Bakery – another great stop. Their cherry turnovers are the best!
Do you notice a food theme going on here? You’re just lucky I didn’t take pictures of Chick-Fil-A or Backyard Burger.
When in the south a person HAS TO eat at the places we don’t have up here in the great white north!
A few other things we learned during our trip…
*Don’t go to Sonny’s BBQ at 1:00 on Sundays – busy, busy, busy.
*Curvy mountain roads are no fun when it’s dark and raining.
*Tornado warnings are just as scary in Tennessee as they are here in the Midwest.
*The Titanic exhibit in Pigeon Forge is well worth the time.
*When they tell you a time share presentation will only last 90 minutes and if you’re there longer than that it’s because you want to stay, THEY LIE! (but we did get free Titanic tickets out of the deal)
*A southern accent is very easy to pick up inside of a week’s time.
*Lid’l Dolly’s in Pigeon Forge is a scary place. I swear the eyes of the dolls followed me as I wandered through the store.
*Food is overpriced in Pigeon Forge.
*There are way too many flashing billboards in Pigeon Forge.
* We don’t care for Pigeon Forge. (can you tell? – sorry Dolly)
*Brussel sprouts fixed with a sweet-sour sauce and bacon are yummy!
*I’m too cheap to pay $7 per day at a resort to use their Wi-Fi.
Tennessee wineries are wonderful. Hillside Winery Black-n-Blue baby!
*Chick-Fil-A really is as good as they say.
*Donna’s Café in Madisonville is a wonderfully, friendly place to eat lunch. It’s pretty amazing when you show up at a place once a year, they remember you and ask if you want your usual table.
*Southern folks are very friendly and helpful.
*We never tire of the Appalachian Mountains!
