Today I went on an outing with a group from church. A small group of 11. We went to Berea, KY to eat at Boone Tavern. I had not been to that restaurant/hotel in about 30 years. Many years ago I ate dinner there with a group from the Chamber of Commerce meeting. Boone Tavern has always been noted for their spoon bread, and they served that to us today. Some say it's not as good as it used to be and the food isn't either; however, I thought the spoon bread was great and the food was good too. The waiters were very attentive, pulling out our chairs for us and even placing the napkins in our laps! It's nice to have a little high class living every now and then!!

Then it was time for dessert!! Bread Pudding which was great!
All the flowers there are so beautiful and lush. I wonder if the kids from the college tend to them as part of their work/classes? Berea College is a working college and the kids there work as part of their tuition. All the flowers along the front of the Tavern and that whole block are so huge and simply beautiful!
We went and browsed in the stores after we ate. I enjoyed seeing all the things that they have, many of which are made by the students. There are many lovely quilts, and you can see the vibrant beautiful lone star quilt behind me!
