My Random Saturday

(clockwise from the top: 85lbs of Cheese at Whole Foods, Union Staion, Sign Downtown, Hot and Fresh Krispy Kremes for the drive home.. the light was on we had to stop)
Yesterday’s plans suddenly changed once I saw a facebook post from the Whole Foods location in Greenhill’s area of Nashville.
“Come See us Cut Open an 85lb Wheel of Cheese at 2PM & try free samples”
They had me at An 85lb wheel of cheese!!! I quickly called my mom to tell her (by this point I was already way too excited about 85lb’s of cheese)! It was 12PM and I was on the parkway head to pick her up for an afternoon of shopping a few towns over… However, after she heard my excitement for “cheese” she asked if I wanted to go?!  Of course! How could I not? Two hours later we are in Nashville sampling cheese at Whole Foods.
For those of you that don’t know I have a strange obsession with unique grocery stores. Maybe it’s because all we have in my town is KROGER. When I’m in Nashville I love to make stops at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Harris Teeter. I’ve been know to drive two hours to Nashville just for VOSS and the most amazing Blueberry Muffins you’ve ever put in your mouth. After making stops at all three grocery stores we ventured downtown for BBQ. The line at Jack’s was out the door… but it was totally worth the wait. The restaurant was very different than expected. It is cafeteria style, basically meaning you wait in line, order your food, pay and they give it to you on a tray. Once you seat yourself… you fix your drink, grab all the BBQ Sauce you can eat and EAT. I love trying new places and Jack’s is defiantly a place I will going back to again.
