The Mart - Eating!!

When you get 13 ladies together for shopping, there is definitely going to be some good food along with it.  Our first stop for dinner was Mary Mac’s.  

This is a place the girls go every year when they come to the Mart.  It is good southern cooking.  I am not much of a southern meat girl but I love some southern vegetables so I chose the vegetable plate.  

Of course they bring out the best yummy cinnamon rolls and rolls that I was so full that it was hard to eat all my other food.

They also brought out pot licker, which I had never had.  I really didn’t even know what it was.  For those of you who don’t know, it is the juice from collard greens with a piece of corn bread inside.  Oh my it was pretty good as well.

When it was time for my food, I was pretty full but managed to eat a little of each vegetable.

Of course some of us ordered dessert, but I had to change mine to no ice cream and then just get it to go.  Nothing like southern pecan pie for a late night snack.

Saturday night we searched and searched for something good and different.  Stephanie had heard of Antico Pizza and it has received great reviews so we tried it out.  When we arrived, there was a cop out directing traffic around the restaurant, so we knew it had to be good with all of the people.  There was a line out the door but the reviews said it only took 15 minutes to get through the line.  Also when the dough runs out they close up - what a place.

As we stood in line, we noticed all of the people bringing in their own drinks, which was a little strange, but we still went with it.  

We arrived at 7:30 and stood in line for about 10 minutes to order our 4 pizzas and had to grab drinks out of the cooler.  There were no substitutions or half toppings.  I was beginning to feel like this was the pizza nazi like the soup nazi on Seinfeld.

We decided on 2 Margarita pizzas-  one with pepperoni, a lasagna pizza and their speciality pizza which had a little spice to it, but was very good.

 There isn't a lot of seating, no plates just a roll of paper towels on the table.  Thankfully we were able to grab this table for all of us - the perfect timing.

A view into the kitchen area with a few extra tables.

Our pizza was out within 5 minutes of us sitting down and it was all very good.  We were back out to our vehicle by 8:15, so 45 minutes total - not too bad for feeding 13 of us.  I can't wait to go back and visit this place.

It was a great weekend of shopping, eating, laughing, and being with friends and I had such a great time.
