Another night where we didn't have the time or energy to cook. There have been a lot of those lately.
We initally tried to order from Peqeña, but it turns out we're outside of their delivery range. Fiddlesticks to that!
Our next choice was Ruthie's, and what a fine choice it was. This little place tucked away on the corner of Myrtle and Emerson is a real treasure. Their menu isn't expansive by any means, but everything is good. I had the smothered pork chops with sides of mashed potatoes and corn (pictures), and Mick got the fried chicken wings with mac and cheese and mashed potatoes. Both platters were excellent, if a little, shall we say, heavy. Don't plan on doing anything strenuous after Ruthie's - you won't be able to move.
For dessert I initally wanted some red velvet cake, but they were sadly sold out. We got the sweet potato pie instead, and I'm glad we did. It's one of my new favorite things in the world.
