Gooooood s'ghetti!


A few weeks back, I told AMGE readers 'bout the Belmont Bi-Rite's spaghetti. I said:

The Belmont Bi-Rite's spaghetti won't impress an Italian too much; but it certainly will impress the hell out of anyone who grew up eating Southern-style spaghetti, like my Granny Ruby used to make.

Well, my ami Mr. Jimmy was kind enough to bring me another tub of Belmont Bi-Rite spaghetti for lunch yesterday. After cropdusting my lunch with some red pepper flakes, I dug right in. After marveling at the big hunks of meat in my spaghetti, I said to myself, "This tub o' Bi-Rite s'ghetti is even better than the tub I had once upon a time!"

One of these days, I'm gonna get my arse over to the Belmont Bi-Rite to try the other stuff they serve at their plate-lunch counter. I promise you that.

My mother used to boil noodles and pour a jar of spaghetti sauce on them. She learned it from my grandmother. Never did impress me much.

The Food Lion near the Nashville Airport has good plate lunches. I always get just vegetables like green beans and pinto beans because that is what they are best known for.

Call ahead and ask Miss Ann to set you back a plate or two of take-out. She suggests you call the day before or early in the day of.
