Last year on our wedding anniversary we went out to eat at The Homeplace. I always joke that I ate so much that it caused my water to break later that night.
We thought it would be a fine tradition to return there for our anniversary this year.
The Homeplace is in Catawba, Virginia. It's inside a historic farmhouse and is family friendly. Expect a wait when you get there. Stick your name on the list and then wander the property.
It's in a beautiful part of the Appalachians, and has long been a popular stopping place for Appalachian Trail thru-hikers.
It's also a popular place for Virginia Tech students, and there was a wedding occuring last Saturday.
Cort and Reid bang on the table in anticipation with their spoons.
You get the choice of 2 meats (fried chicken, roast beef, or ham) and then they bring out tons of sides.
It's all you can eat, and the bowls are placed on the table.
Corn, pinto beans, green beans, biscuits (with chow chow or apple butter), cole slaw, mashed potatoes, gravy, and the 2 meats.
And my gosh it is SO good.
Best Southern cooking ever.
Included is dessert...cobbler with ice cream. A different type each day, and Saturday was cherry cobbler.
While I probably wasn't as full as I was the year prior, at 38 weeks 3 days preggo with twins, I was pretty stuffed! Hopefully this time we won't wait a full year before going back.
