Not long after we moved into our current house outside of Atlanta, we started sharing things with the next-door neighbors: cups of sugar, random garden tools and bottles of wine. The concept of Tuesday wine developed as a shortcut way to borrow some decent, but inexpensive wine for a mid-week dinner. You know, when you’ve just pulled a steak off the grill, realized that you’re slap out of wine and can’t stand the thought of getting back in the car for just a bottle of wine? Tuesday wine fits the bill perfectly – not necessarily something you’d let age in the wine cellar (as if we had one) but good enough for a random Tuesday. The following is a review of two reds I picked up recently for just such an occasion.

I’m about to break our number one rule and review a restaurant after a single visit. I know the rule is to always give a place a second chance, but I’m making an exception in this case. I will preface this by saying, Padriac’s is not bad, it’s just not good enough to eat there again, considering other eateries in Vinings. I know its harsh, but if you’re just in need of a drink or an appetizer then Padriac’s will suffice, but if your looking for something to feed your “Southern Hunger” then this, over priced pub, is probably not for you. Here’s what we thought of Padriac’s in Vinings,GA .
If your the last person in Atlanta to have not experienced lunch at Taqueria del Sol, go ahead right now and get your car running while you read this. This place has been a locals favorite for 10 years and hopefully many more to come. The service is always friendly, and the ingredients always taste fresh and delicious. For the lunch plate I always suggest the Fried Chicken Taco, Carnita Taco, and a bowl of Shrimp Corn Chowder. The tacos are always seasoned just right with bright flavors, warm soft tortillas and the meat fillings are never dry or tough, always tender and perfect.
The Hungry Southerner and friends are cooking up a pot of boiled crawfish this Saturday and it had us wondering, what are you serving up this weekend? What new ingredients or recipes are you trying out? Any new restaurants or food events worth sharing with us? Any huge cooking disasters? We’d love to hear about it. So what are you serving up? Leave us a comment or tweet us at http://www.twitter.com/HungrySouthernr. Come back on Monday to get a inside view of how to throw a Southern Style Crawfish Boil.

I’m a Southerner. Want to see my qualifications? This is my cast iron skillet, inherited from my Grandmother, who taught me how to use it. My grandmother was a true southern woman, who could cook anything. I spent hours stirring, smelling, tasting, browning, roasting, grilling, sauteing, chopping, peeling, baking, cutting and eating under the education of my NaNa. She taught me what it means to “Season To Taste”, which describes life in the South.
The Hungry Southerner is all about what happens when a group of people are experiencing Southern culture together. This is an outlet for Southern Foodie’s to talk about ingredients, restaurants, chef’s, farms, and all things said while eating together. So put on your seersucker suit, go season your cast iron skillet, and start soaking a pot of red beans welcome to The Hungry Southerner.
