I’m a Disgraceful Southerner

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cracker Barrel for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Yes, you read that correctly, I’m a disgraceful southerner. I’ve lived in “the south” since I was a toddler, but I can’t fry chicken to save my life. It’s either undercooked or burnt to a crisp. So I’ve accepted that about myself, and we enjoy fried chicken elsewhere. 

I love creating experiences with my girls that we used to participate as kids. Even something as simple as going out to eat for dinner. I hold fond memories of going out to eat with my family. There were no phones at the time so it was a great way to  reconnect and find out about what happened while we were at work or school for the week.

Last night we went into Cracker Barrel for a southern cooking refresher course. The moment we sat down my husband and I started reminiscing about playing the peg game as little kids.  How it kept us busy until our food came out. It did the same for my girls too. I taught my oldest how to play and on her first try, she got down to one peg. I was pretty impressed because I tried next and failed miserably.

My husband got his gravy fix also. With his biscuits, chicken fried chicken, and mashed potatoes. You can’t go wrong with a plate full of fresh food smothered in pepper gravy, or a huge slice of apple pie.

The one thing I loved most was getting to pick out a candy cane from the wall of different flavors. The country store has changed a lot since I was a kid. Aside from all the great vintage candy and snacks, there is a ton of decor and clothing products now. I bought a new shirt and an infinity scarf before we left. My husband and I both got one of our favorite treats. Mine is the pecan log, and his was the Neopolitan Coconut strip.

While everyone was waiting for me to check out, they were taking it easy in the rocking chairs on the front porch. My oldest was tickled that she found a mini rocking chair for her little sister. 

You can now shop the Cracker Barrel’s Retail Store online! 

What are some experiences that you’ve recreated for your kids?
