After breakfast we drove to Cade's Cove to see if we could see some animals. It was warming up so there were not many out like they are later in the fall. We did see one interesting animal though.
If you look you can see a deer way back there. Or at least they tell me you can.
Well we worked up an appetite hunting bears so we went down to the Apple Barn. This has been a family favorite for years. If we go no where else we have to go to the Apple Barn.
They bring out the apple fritters and apple julep. There is also apple butter for the fritters. They are still as good as we remember.
The vegetable soup. Very good but has a little kick to it dur to the black pepper.
I ordered the fried chicken again. Very good too. Hard to say which one was better. Might have to go back and try it again to see.
My mother got chicken fingers with their homemade honey mustard sauce
Joe had the chicken and dumplings again. These are thicker than the ones from the Mill. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.
Daddy had the meatloaf.
After a very filling lunch, we went over to the Christmas shop. I love Christmas shops and this one was a good one.
We went to the Aquarium of the Smokies, Friday afternoon. Our first time there too. It was nice and Megan enjoyed seeing the fish. It was very relaxing and almost put all of us to sleep.
That concludes this episode of Traveling with the Grobmyers. Hope this makes you want to schedule a trip to the Mountains soon.
