Virginia and I met at the WhistleStop Cafe for lunch. It was the first time I've been to the Cafe in years... and now I am thinking~what a shame! The McMichaels' go a long way back with the cafe. Here is the history of the WhistleStop Cafe for anyone who is interested. I have also posted on the working kitchen, about the years Mom and Dad spent serving meals to generations of families in Birmingham.
It was 27 years ago when Fannie Flagg walked in and told mom she was going to write a book about her Aunt Bess, who had owned the cafe before Dad decided to buy it. Many of the stories in Fried Green Tomatoes at the WhistleStop Cafe are based on tales from those early years. The building hasn't changed in many years, even though we sold the cafe in 2000. The food is a s good as ever!
Not exactly on the diet... but what the Heck?? Everyone has to fudge sometimes.
