Here in Southern Oregon we were rooting for the “other” Cook in American Idol Christy Lee Cook, rather than American Idol winner David Cook. On the way home from California Sunday we dropped in to the Country Folks restaurant of Selma, Oregon. My wife and daughter had been there before but I hadn’t. In addition to being “Christy Lee Central” for local fans who would watch the show from there every Tuesday and Wednesday, Country Folks has simply *outstanding* home cooked food, so I really wanted to put in a plug for them.
We ordered fried chicken and an open faced turkey sandwich with stuffing, potatoes, and gravy. The chicken was excellent, but the sandwich was a country cooking work of art – a plate brimming with fresh mashed potatoes, rich gravy, juicy turkey, a scoop of dressing, and cranberry sauce on the side. After that meal I can’t imagine eating anywhere else along route 199 – Oregon’s very scenic road from I5 to the Coast past Cave Junctions (near the Oregon Caves National Monument), through the Redwoods, and on to the sea.
