Chouteau, OK

The Husband and I took a drive today and ended up in Chouteau, OK. Have you ever been there?

For a long time, we have seen tv ads for the Amish Crafted Furniture store located in this town. We stopped and took a look at their goods. Oh. My. Goodness. I'm ready to refurnish our entire house! The craftmanship and quality of this furniture is quite high and, on the plus side, we didn't think their prices were unreasonable at all. These furniture pieces are future heirlooms. If you are in need of new furniture, I recommend that you look there first!

We ate lunch at the Dutch Pantry. They feature home cooked food, served buffet style and all you can eat. On the menu for today was fried chicken. Yum, yum. The place was packed when we arrived. There was a charter bus tour group there enjoying lunch, along with a variety of people I assumed to be local workers and folks like us who just happened to be driving through town. We'll return to this place, for sure. I'm interested in their breakfast buffet, since breakfast is my favorite meal. 

We stopped at one of the local antique stores. It was more a junk store than an antique store, but whatever. Prices were really reasonable. We saw a couple of interesting things, but ulimately left without making a purchase. 

All in all, it was a pleasant day with The Husband exploring small town Oklahoma. 

What did you do on Wednesday?
