Pieday: Chocolate Meringue at The Country Rooster.
You can find all sorts of things in its cubbies and aisles — beautiful glassware in almost every color of the rainbow, records from ages and ages of vinyl, canned goods of various sorts, books, memorabilia, furniture, whathaveyou.
Ah, what I do for you folks. There was this gorgeously decadent cake in the case… layers of delicious delight — and I passed. I passed because this year I am in search of good pie. And every time I ask people on my Facebook fan page about their favorite pie place, The Country Rooster gets mentioned. So instead it was time to consume yet another pie… and the pie of the day was Chocolate Meringue.
Yeah, you hear me complaining (that was sarcasm).
I have an assignment up in those parts in a few weeks… maybe then I’ll get a chance to try that lasagna. And now, since I’ve been told about it, I have to try the homemade bread, too.
You’ll find The Country Rooster on the square in Green Forest, right on Highway 62. It’s open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday, (870) 438-5710 or check out the website.
