Graceland

Today as we left Memphis we swung by Graceland hoping to snap a picture. Although Elvis’s house is located on a busy street among gas stations, fast food and hotels, it is nestled in a bunch of trees and impossible to see from the street. Since we didn’t want to pay $6 just to get our car parked, we just took a picture of the sign.

From there we made our way to Arkansas. We stopped in Hot Springs to have some lunch and ate at the Dixie Café. They had a plate called Vegetable Heaven. Since we have been in the land of few vegetables both John and I decided to have it. Our lunch consisted of a marinated black-eye pea salad and three sides. John had turnip greens, fried okra and white beans with ham. I had the white beans and ham, cole slaw and the real surprise, deep fried corn on the cob. This was corn dipped in a tempura type batter and deep-fried. Really good. And there is no question that John and I are going back on the healthy lifestyle plan and get fit when we are back in California.
