Mary Mac’s Tea Room in Atlanta, GA
Mary Mac’s Tea Room isn’t your typical tea room. The menu will list southern food dishes rather than tea flavors. In southern style you will eat fried foods, several vegetables, bread with butter, and drink several glasses of iced tea. Because I grew up in the south -- that’s kool.
While my cup wrap soaked up all the wet on my cold glass, I enjoyed some of my favorite foods -- fried catfish, black-eyed peas, fried okra, and carrot raisin salad!
Georgia – large sweet peaches – peach cobbler for dessert!
A portrait of Miss Scarlett reminded me of her tumultuous relationship with Rhett Butler in the movie “Gone with the Wind,” which I’ve watched many times on Turner Classic Movies.
Rhett Butler: “Here's a soldier of the South who loves you, Scarlett. Wants to feel your arms around him, wants to carry the memory of your kisses into battle with him. Never mind about loving me, you're a woman sending a soldier to his death with a beautiful memory. Scarlett! Kiss me! Kiss me... once...” And he kisses her passionately. That’s hot!
