Home Sweet Home
Today I realized that my oldest son will be coming home from Iraq in just a couple of weeks!!!! He left the end of August and has been counting down the days since November. It's funny but we have already been thinking about what foods we want to prepare and tossing around ideas for activities to celebrate his return. My son loves country cooking (southern food) and if you like it too and you live in Georgia, Buckner's Family Restaurant is the place to eat. I love the fact that Buckner's is located on Bucksnort Road. I don't think the name sounds appetizing but don't let the name of the road turn you off. Buckner's is most famous for its fried chicken, but the yeast rolls, creamed corn, barbeque, corn bread, peach cobbler are all hard to ignore. When you get to the restaurant, you pay a flat fee and then sit at a big round table with a lazy susan. The more food you eat, the more they bring. My guess is that Buckner's will be one of the first places we go so that my son can get his fill of southern food. I am sure that in the weeks to come there will be more postings about this big event but for now we will just keep thinking about how to make his homecoming special.
