Eating Omaha...LoLo's Chicken and Waffles

I don't know what caught my eye about the TV spot I saw for this joint but it sounded like a place we would try with the Fangman's. We saw them Saturday night and reconnected for dinner at our house and had a great visit. Love them.

At the Thanksgiving table I happened to mention the LoLo's ad and the family made plans to meet with our kids on Sunday. Wow, great little place and the food was unbelievable. Brenda was tried of hearing about me rave about the collard greens but everything was a hit.

We were not shy about this at all. We ordered the feast for 6 for the five of us and we had plenty left over. I think we carried out as much food as we ate and we took a plate to Mackenzie who was working.

The chicken was superb. Everything you want fried chicken to be, crisp and crunchy. The meat was delicate and tender. The sides we tried hit the right notes too. we are not used to eating grits, so found those a bit bland but the fried okra, slaw and greens were amazing. Definitely a spot we will hit again, especially on a Sunday afternoon.

Working again....

Making slow progress through these last 5 Saints. Started background fill in to finish the garments.So many details left to do.
Slowly but surely I hope to be done here fairly soon and get this project off the board and on to something else. Concurrently I am working on a private commission panel. I would love to do about 50 more of these to go all the way around the church but not sure how approach the board or parish.

I would rather the parish choose their own Saints this time and even donate whole 'family' panels. The dilemma comes when we move to a new church and they want to hire a 'real' iconographer. what do we do with all of this?  Anyway, I want to paint a few 'soldier' saints and the like. There is room for about 50 or so and create a real 'cloud of witnesses' around the sanctuary and meanwhile I get much needed practice. This go around they might need to run about $300 each to keep me in the business and still give 1/2 to the altar servers.
