Motorcyle riding weather is back! In fact it was back last weekend for us. Even though I had to wear my "cuddle duds" and make sure my seat heater was working, we enjoyed a jaunt into the country. Destination - some truly off the beaten path locations.
I had read on Jacqui's blog about New Frankfort Mercantile Quilt Shop. A cute shop in the middle of no where. Lots of pretty antique quilt and sewing machine displays and a nice selection of fabrics in a unique old house. I think this is a pretty new business so it will be interesting to see how things evolve and worth a stop again when the flowers are blooming.
On down the road a ways is Lurton's Home Cooking Cafe in Commiskey, Indiana. I'm not sure what this building was originally, but it's certainly got character going for it. Evidently they have an Elvis impersonator that performs occasionally and Elvis memorabilia is everywhere. Next trip we'll have to take our friend G along as she is a big fan of the "king"!
You can tell they don't go out of their way for fancy furnishings! The menu is a chalkboard on the wall and the kitchen is just a corner of the large room. But what they lack on style, they make up for in food! And don't be looking for any lo-calorie dishes here either. They serve good old home-cooked, stick to your ribs type meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner).
This was hubby's meatloaf dinner ($4.75 I think, including cole slaw)!
My hot roast beef open face sandwich ($4.00)! I told you this isn't diet food!
Okay. Are you ready to take your own trip off the beaten path in Indiana! Finding places like these are what's fun about taking the Harley out on a cool, spring day. Oh, the places we can find!
