Periodically, I get a strong urge to do something country. After all, once a country girl, always a country girl. I keep a quilt nearby called Feeling Country to quiet these urges.
But this week I decided it was a good time to have dinner at a restaurant called the Farmhouse at Serenbe. Located in Palmetto, Georgia, it is approximately 35 miles from downtown Atlanta.
This restaurant is known for its concept of cooking what is fresh that day. There is a weekly farmers market at Serenbe, so the menu features whatever is in season. There are only two entres on the menu, but the food is served in a quaint, romantic environment. We never had choices at home for dinner, so two choices was a bonus. Although the food is more “California country” rather than “Crossett, Arkansas country”, the visit to the restaurant served to quiet my country urges. After all, to get to the restaurant, you have to drive down an unlit gravel road (my friend with the convertible Corvette was not pleased), and there are horses and cows nearby.
The important thing is to stay in touch with your authentic self whoever she is. Get to know her. Learn to like her. Oh, and keep a good friend in your life who will partner with you on your search for her.
