Huntsville and Madison are fully stocked with chain restaurants, especially in the part of town where I work. When Misty and I eat lunch out on one of the days when Liza and Eli are in school, many of our options are ones like Ratherbee’s, Fettuccine Grille, or Uluru Steakhouse. There are native restaurants in the city; they’re just not right next to us.
We’ve decided to start seeking them out. Over the next few months, we’re going to try to eat out once a week in a local restaurant. We’ll let you know how it goes.
