The Chaplain and I are in the Show-Me state this week. Yesterday we traveled a loooonnnggg stretch of Highway 60. Unfortunately, we ran into a little detour…
Road closed to cross the Mississippi!
Apparently, the recent storms washed out part of our route. Our sweet little GPS girl “recalculated” and soon we were crossing the mighty Mississippi river.
Crossing over the Mississippi River into Missouri
Our detour led us to a landmark in rural Missouri: Lambert’s Cafe, ‘only home of throwed rolls.’ It was time for lunch, so we decided to experience the culture.
Lambert's in Sikeston, MO
The rolls were quite good, as were the homestyle vegetables we sampled. The photo below doesn’t quite do the rolls justice. The brown blob is an unappetizing rendering of very delicious apple butter. Yeah, them there throwed rolls was pretty good. The little detour proved to be interesting and filling. I love me a good road trip–what about you?
Caught one and ate it!
