Just a short note to let you know that I’m back from vacation and will be posting some recipes soon. We had a great time at Lake Ouachita State Park near Hot Springs, Arkansas. The weather and the scenery were beautiful. We did some simple cooking in the cabin, but nothing to write about. The one vegetarian restaurant we found, right across the street from Bathhouse Row in Hot Springs, was called I Relax. It had a simple menu of veggie sandwiches on Ezekiel bread and juices, and it was a welcome relief from the other “home-style” restaurants on that street that served only meat dishes.
My only other food-related experience worth noting is that we stopped in Lake Providence, Louisiana, and bought several different types of Panola hot sauce and a jar of Panola spicy olives, made right there in Lake Providence. I will leave you with this sign, spotted in the flat lands of the Mississippi delta in northeast Louisiana:
We didn’t stop there, but we had fun thinking of slogans for future ad campaigns. My sister came up with the winner: “Jehovah Java–Righteous Good Coffee!”
