amy_donovan Nashville, you gotta check out @TheSutler! We did the family-style Grass Fed Sundays tonight + it was AMAZING! Whole smoked chicken, pit-loaded smoked mac + cheese, & Brussels sprouts hash with whipped Yukon golds. Seriously the best meal I've had in a while! 5d
  •   amy_donovan Plus there was fantastic live bluegrass music + it was totally kid-friendly. I'm now obsessed with this place. 5d
  •   tjwilbur Okay, between you & @betheats, I'm convinced we need to take A and try it out. It's so hard to find delicious AND kid-friendly these days! Every Sunday right? 5d
  •   amy_donovan @tjwilbur - Yes! Starts at 4:30 PM. Not sure if reservations are needed, but we did make one (for 5:15 PM) and when we left around 7 it was full. Fixed-price family-style meal includes the main dish + 3 sides (I forgot to mention the dressing under the chicken) + I believe the cost varies slightly every week depending on how schfancy the main dish is. =) Perfectly fed 4 of us plus the tiny human. Really, the experience and food could not have been better! 5d
  •   betheats Yes!!! Aren't those Brussels sprouts / Yukon golds awesome??? 5d
  •   amy_donovan @betheats Uh, INSANE! 5d
  •   apayne_17 ditto to @betheats - had to chime in on that mash. it was the highlight of my meal there! 5d
  •   everyoneneedsajess That sounds amazing! 5d

amy_donovan Honey-Chipotle Meatballs for dinner! I don't typically love ground turkey, but this recipe is amazingly delicious. 1mon
  •   localforkful we eat our fair share of ground turkey around these parts! the wife doesn't eat a lot of beef or pork...or any really 1mon
  •   amy_donovan @localforkful Do you have any particular ground turkey recipes that you love? I'd love to use it more, but sometimes it's just too .... turkey-tasting for me. 1mon
  •   amy_donovan @localforkful So I tend to like it most in heavily-seasoned recipes where the turkey taste isn't as pronounced. Ha! 1mon
  •   localforkful We use it a lot in spaghetti, nachos, and our version of meatloaf sub turkey with lots of fresh herbs. 1mon

  •   lifemadesweeter So adorable! 1mon
  •   feathercreative Y'all were in my stomping grounds today?! We were even at Walden mid day today getting pumpkins. Hate that I missed seeing you! 1mon
  •   amy_donovan @feathercreative yes! We were at a Walden from 11-12ish, then Martin's for BBQ from 12-1. Wish we had bumped into you! 1mon
  •   amy_donovan @stlfoodstyling She loved the hay maze + the corn, laughed at the rabbits, sheep + piglets, but seemed unimpressed by the pumpkins themselves - she barely seemed to notice them! Too much other fun stuff to look at. All in all, she had fun. =) 1mon
