The Foodies Take a Day Trip
The Foodie Husband went out of town for a few days, so the rest of the Foodies decided to take a road trip on Sunday afternoon.
We were hoping to try the famous Gnaw Bone breaded pork tenderloin sandwich, which is served at the Gnaw Mart, a gas station in the little town of Gnaw Bone, but we found out that the place is closed on Sundays.
So we turned around and stopped at the nearby Brown County Winery and after tasting a few of their wines, picked out a couple to bring home with us.
Then we headed back down the road a bit to Nashville, Indiana for lunch.
Nashville, Indiana is a tourist mecca, known for the nearby Brown County State Park, the rolling hills, the beautiful fall foliage, and the plentiful quaint shops that dot nearly every street and alley.
The road from Bloomington to Nashville is winding and hilly.
This is the view to the east at the top of one of the hills.
We decided to go to a restaurant we had been to before - The Artists Colony Inn.
As its name implies, the place also serves as a hotel, with rooms upstairs.
The place was full when we arrived.
We all were in the mood for breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches, so that's what we ordered.
I opted for onion rings to go with my sandwich.
They were light and not greasy.
The Foodie Daughter and Foodie Boyfriend each ordered sun fries, or sweet potato fries with a brown sugar sauce as their side.
The Foodie Daughter was in heaven.
I'm pretty sure I heard her "marry" at least one of the fries - right before she ate it.
The Artist Colony Inn makes a pretty good breaded pork tenderloin sandwich.
After lunch we went window shopping at some of the small shops around Nashville, but then we remembered that we didn't need new windows.
It was time to head back to B-town.
Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.
