Southern Favourites - Meat 'n 3's and Boiled Peanuts
There is a name down here for the kind of eatery that serves simple home cookin'. They are called 'Meat n Threes'. You choose the meat and 3 sides. H&H in Macon, Georgia is the most famous, but it wasn't open when I was there. So I went to S&S instead. I didn't have time for the sit-down meal so I had takeout. It was great but way too much food. And way too many choices - ham, roast chicken, fried chicken, salisbury steak, whipped potatoes, cheese potatoes, baked squash, string beans, cracklin' cornbread, etc, etc.
Then there were the roadside stands with local stuff like boiled peanuts! I tried them, but it was a waste of $5 for me! Too salty, too gummy and too much of the shell flavour.
