Snappy Lunch Pork Chop Sandwich

Here in NC the Andy Griffith Show is a big favorite. Most of us that live here have grown up with Andy, Opie, Barney and Aunt Bee as if they were part of the family. The show still airs every week night. 🙂 Though we were all saddened by Andy Griffith’s recent passing he will always be legendary in this part of the south!

The Andy Griffith Show was set in the fictitious Mayberry, NC which was based on Andy Griffith’s home town Mt. Airy, NC.

Many of the places mentioned on the show are real places in Mt. Airy. One such place is the Snappy Lunch Diner. The Snappy Lunch is famous for its pork chop sandwich. Check out this Southern Living video about the Snappy Lunch. If you make it over  to Mt. Airy, be sure to stop in the Snappy Lunch and order a sandwich. For those of you who would like to try it now, here is the recipe.

You will need:

Thin cut slices of pork tenderloin

KFC Style Coleslaw

I love this time of year! Cooking outside on the grill and eating outside on the porch are ways we spend relaxing evenings together. It’s this time of year that I start thinking about grilled foods, fried chicken, big buttery biscuits, oh…and KFC coleslaw! Here is a recipe that tastes just like the KFC coleslaw and is really easy to make!

You will need:

2 Tbsp and 1/4 tsp vinegar

3 Tbsp and 1/4 tsp oil

2/4 cup chopped onion

1 1/4 cup Miracle Whip

1/2 cup sugar

1 carrot, shredded

1 medium to large head of cabbage,  finely shredded

Mix the first five ingredients together.

Then add in the shredded cabbage and carrots. Mix well. Refrigerate overnight so that the flavors blend well.

A great addition to any cookout! 🙂
