First RV Trip of 2023 – Day 4 - Bryan College And Screen Door Kitchen

On day four, most of the group went to Huddle House for breakfast then for a tour of Bryan College.  William Jennings Bryan obviously made an impact on Dayton during the Scopes Monkey Trial as they named the college after him and believe it or not, one of our club members went there (even though he lived in Ohio) and he arranged for a tour.  Bryan is a small private Christian college with about 800 students and an academic staff of 200 full and part time.  Their endowment is $6 million vs Harvard’s $51 billion. 

Nothing was planned for the afternoon then we went to supper at the Screen Door Kitchen which had been recommended along with the dishes to consider ordering.  The restaurant is on the ground floor of an old home and the family lives upstairs.

Bev had the highly rated "Eva's Beef and Pork Meatloaf over Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes smothered with Onion Gravy and Topped with Fried Onions" for $17 and it was delicious with a very good texture.

I had the Prosciutto and Mushroom Linguini described as "Pan Fried Chicken over pasta tossed with prosciutto, Mushroom and Shaved Brussel Sprouts in Cream Sauce" for $18.  The pasta was very tasty with lots of flavor and the chicken was cooked just right - moist and fork tender.

Everyone seemed satisfied with their meals.  

After supper, it was a drive around town as it was being set up for the annual Strawberry Festival and I thought Dayton was a nice little town with the main area about four blocks long and two blocks wide.

And, of course, we ended the night with a fire but in this case two propane versions, one of which was a middle eastern camel-dung-burner used by nomads to heat their tents.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. Great day, friends and food!! 😊

  2. I haven't had meatloaf in far too long and your pasta & chicken looked tasty too. The camel-dung-burner is very cool! Glad you are having a fun time.

  3. I must say that the meatloaf that Bev ordered looks mighty good indeed!

  4. Larry, We'll have to check out the Screen Door Restaurant. You are the second person we know who really enjoyed eating there... Love the design of that propane heater/"fire pit". Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. That meatloaf sounds wonderful.


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
