On the Road to Tallassee


I'm not in the mood to write about anything serious today. Instead, I'm just going to post a favorite photo I took last September when we drove over to Tallassee for lunch at the Hotel Talisi. I'll update my dining review while here. There's new ownership and the food is still pretty much the same with a few twists here and there. They still have the turnip greens casserole that I wish someone would give me a recipe for. I've never seen it anywhere else.

If I were a real estate agent writing a caption for this property, it would be:
Charming classic country home available. Convenient to I-85. Mature landscaping. Dryer and satellite dish included. Window treatments remain.


I wish I could be funny. Funny like Miss Trashahassee, over at Trashology. She hails from Tallahassee, not to be confused with Tallassee. Only thing separating the two towns is an ah. Her humor is of the white trash, trailer court variety, and I think in all reality she’s a smart woman. But, I’ll go with the ruse.

me, too. I wish I could write like Miss Trashahassee...she really did put a smile on my face.

Kind of an uncomfortable smile, though, she nails some human behaviors down very well...

Sheila, do you know if Hotel Talisi serves an evening buffet like at lunchtime?

Don said...

Sheila, go to http://allrecipes.com/Search/Recipes.aspx?WithTerm=casseroles&SearchIn=All and look at the recipe for the Savory Spinach Casserole. It may be close to the turnip greens casserole recipe you want, or you might be able to juggle and adjust the ingredients to make something close to what you want. If you can’t your eldest should be able to.
Bon appetite!

Marion, glad you visited Miss T and thought the same thing I did. She's a hoot.

Don, I don't know if they do or don't serve the evening meal. I suspect they don't. Remember how the noon meal used to be the big meal? My aunt would cook up fried chicken, corn, field peas, sliced tomatoes, cornbread, biscuits and a pie on a regular basis all without the benefit of air conditioning in her tiny kitchen. I loved to visit and get in on the wonderful meals she served.

Thanks for the recipe link. I'll check it out and let you know if I can duplicate the Hotel's casserole.

Hmmm, turnip green casserole sounds interesting. My mother would LOVE to have that recipe.

Miss Trashahassie (did I spell that right?) is a hoot!

Miss T is my new favorite stopping off for a smile blog.

Y'all some sweet people, y'all is.
I just now read these comments. (We've been gone for eight days and I've had limited Internet access.)

I sure do appreciate this ... made my whole year!!!!

Marion, I added you to my blogroll. I hope you don't mind, but if you do, please let me know and I'll remove the link. And please allow your smile to become a comfortable one!

Sheila, what you talkin' about when you say "I wish I could be funny"? Is you crazy, woman? You is funny! (I can't believe that anyone thinks I'm funny ... and believe me, there are a bunch of people who DON'T!!!) I love your blog and you've been on my blog roll since I found you (or vice versa?) -- I hope that's OK with you, also, but if not, just let me know, OK?

Again, thanks, y'all!

BFF,
Miss T

Y'all BFF,
Miss T

Miss T, I am updating my blogroll to include yours since one of my favorites is taking off for a while. I hate it when people do that, but I'm going to have to do that for about three weeks coming up soon. We are fixin' to move.
