Today's favorite thing is Coke in a glass bottle. I love Coke, but Coke in a glass bottle is ten times better than Coke in a plastic bottle or in a can. There are a few gas stations around here that have Coke in a glass bottle all the time. This one particular store I happened to stop at had dozens of glass bottles of Coke iced down in a big metal tub! My idea of heaven! You can occasionally find this wonderful product in the grocery store. Make sure they are nice and cold before you drink them though. The country store part of Cracker Barrel also has Coke in a glass bottle.
If you are feeling particularly Southern the day you get your glass bottle Coke then you should definitely buy some salted peanuts. Throw a handful of the peanuts into the Coke and enjoy. Drink carefully though! You don't want to accidentally choke on a peanut. That would be a bit embarassing, not to mention life threatning! I realize that peanuts in your Coke sounds absolutely disgusting, but it is so good. I'm not sure why the combination is so yummy, but I don't question-I just enjoy! I hope you will enjoy too!
Maybe if I am not off my Southern kick by next week, I will share with you how to make the perfect green fried tomato. Let's hope I'm off my all things Southern kick soon. If not, I fear I may have to rename my blog! I just can't help it, I enjoy my Southern roots!
