Visiting Mayberry

 Mount Airy is the childhood home of the late Andy Griffith. I don't think there's a baby boomer in the country that hasn't seen every episode of the "Andy Griffth Show" airing from 1960 to 1968.
Some time ago, on our way to the beach, we stopped at Mount Airy, North Carolina. A cute little town that makes you think that you've been transported to Mayberry.
Floyd's Barber Shop - You can get your haircut while you listen to Floyd's stories about Mayberry.
The Snappy Lunch - Where Andy and Barnie would grab lunch. But you can too! They are famous for the pork chop sandwich with chili, cole slaw, mustard, onion and tomato on top!
Wally's service station where Goober worked.

Sherriff Taylor's desk...
and the jail cell where Ottis spent many a night!
Take a tour of the town in a police car...


You can even stay overnight in Andy's childhood home!
"Mayberry days" take place every September in Mt. Airy. This year's special guest was actress Betty Lynn, age 91, better known as Thelma Lou...Barney's  girlfriend on the show!

Have any of you been to Mt. Airy, North Carolina?

Loaded Baked Cauliflower Casserole

This is a delicious low-carb dish that will be a winner with the whole family. Sour cream, lots of cheesy goodness and crisp bacon....you can never go wrong with bacon!
 This is a great side dish but you could add cooked chicken or cooked ground beef before baking to make a main dish casserole.


3 strips of cooked bacon, crumbled
1 cup, onion
2 1/2 cups cooked and finely chopped cauliflower
3/4 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup low-fat sour cream

* chives or green onion garnish, optional

Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 350*
Mix sour cream, onion, cheese, and bacon together
Add cooked cauliflower
Mix well
Put in a 8x8 square dish and bake 25 minutes or until bubbly and brown around the edges.
Enjoy!!

"Night Sky" Petunia

The "Night Sky" Petunia is spotted!
My brother has a hanging basket of these in his yard...beautiful! I have never seen or heard of this one before.
This lovely new color pattern is not 100% stable. When we have hot days and cool nights, the color will be predominately white with a purple star pattern.

 When both day and night temperatures are unusually high, the coloring may become almost solid purple. Very unique!
