Daisy's Country Cooking

This is as close to insta-posting as I'm getting to these days. I just came from a delicious meal of liver and onions, greens, mac and cheese, cornbread, and orange cake, thanks to my new friends at Daisy's County Cooking on West Fifth Street in downtown New Albany. Yum!!
You know I have a thing for cafeterias, and the whole slide-the-tray-down-the-track opportunity to select from a variety of tasties served in the individual plastic bowls. I was spent after a day hostessing tourism colleagues, then I concierged a senior group. What better pick-up than some iron-rich liver and onions? I felt perkier after the first bite!!
And, I'm especially intrigued by the idea of cafeteria-style breakfasts, so a follow-up to Daisy's is definitely needed. Who wants to join me?!
Daisy's does not have a website. Phone is 812-944-8101.

The Cafe

So, I've been hearing about The Café from multiple co-workers. See, I've been investigating box lunch options for my groups, so I'm getting great input from lots of sources. Today, I understand why The Café is topping those lists.

This, my friends, is the Southern Grits Scramble, with grits covered by eggs, covered by cheese, then covered by tomatoes and bacon. Do I even need to explain how terrific this was?! And, breakfast is available at any time. I love a joint that doesn't limit dreamy food to just morning hours.

I understand from (now confirmed) good sources that the salads, sandwiches, and soups are good. Heck, I haven't heard a bad thing about The Café! Who's with me to explore the whole menu?

O'Shea's Irish Pub

This month's Best Burger Ever came to me courtesy of O'Shea's Irish Pub in the Highlands. It is, afterall, Tartan Day, and I'm hanging with the Louisville Pipe Band at a fundraiser there. I was a first-timer to this pub, but you know I did my menu homework. Their Pepper Jam Avocado Burger topped with Swiss, crispy peppers, sweet hot pepper jam, lettuce, and tomato on a potato bun was off the charts! Note that I tried to order healthy with seasoned (which unbeknownst to me was bacon!) and charred Brussels sprouts. Delish!! Who wants to get their Irish on and explore with me?!
