Epicurean Kentuckian: Betty's OKCC has changed his world

Life is Good: Epic news in food world. The return of the native can occur on any of six days of (almost) any week

By Dave Rosenbaum

I usually try to get to Fairplay once or twice a month. In the past the only feasible days to make the trip were Tuesday's and Thursday's.

Often I wanted to come on, say Monday or perhaps Friday, but that just wasn't feasible because Betty's only had those fried potatos on Tuesday and Thursday.

I just noticed on CM that things have changed. Potatos every day!!!! Life is good. --Dave Rosenbaum

Thanks, Bro. Dave for that astute insight. Yes, Columbia/Adair County, South Central Kentucky, the whole Commonwealth - indeed the world and universe, does now have that going for us.
It did not escape the eagle eye of CM, but, as you know, we eschew all things prideful, all hyperbole, all things boastful in counting the blessings of living in this veritable Paradise on Earth.

Just because Betty's OK Country Cooking has the plus-ultimate, too die for Fried Potatoes, a destination delicacy in their own right, does not mean we are going to bragg about it.

Nor would we ever do anything to give her or anyone here the Big Head. But, thanks for letting us know you can now return to your roots more often. -EW
