Hey...throw me another roll!!

Here I sit in Sikeston MO this am, my feet up in my easy chair!  Nice little park, Hinton RV, for a quick night or two.  Nothing fancy.....fairly level gravel sites, full hookups, plus decent cable tv.  They advertise wifi, but it is pretty bad.....weak signal and really slow. 
Last night we ate dinner at Lambert's, "Home of the Throwed Rolls"!  What a hoot!  Yes, they do actually throw the rolls at you and yes some miss their mark and end up on the floor.  You are NOT required to eat those....LOL!  Anyway I had chicken pot pie with a side of dumplings and candied yams...and those rolls....oh my....thought I'd died and gone to heaven.  Plus they come around and offer you "sides" of fried okra, fried potatoes, mac-n-cheese, and apple butter and molasses for your roll.  Real comfort food served in a relaxed atmosphere....my kinda place.  It was all especially good after a day on the road....a cold grey, wet day.
Once back at the rv we settled back in our recliners...cozy as little bugs in rugs....in front of our little electric fireplace.
Today we relax and tomorrow we head to Little Rock.  The weather looks like it might be improving a bit warmer and dry, but still really grey skies.  I soooooo need to see the sun!


  1. for several years we led a group of motorcycles on a week end trip to Sikeston to catch some of those rolls! UMMMMMM GOOD!

  2. A couple of my kids have been to Lambert's and they thought it was wonderful too. Unfortunately, I have never had the pleasure but I would sure like to one day.

  3. We went to that restaurant on our 30th anniversary trip, back in 2008. What fun it was! I especially remember being so stuffed from all the food they offered in addition to my ordered entree that I wasn't hungry for days. Well, almost.
