Happy belated birthday to Kelley Autry, who turned the big 1-8 last week!! My how time flies! Kelley was born when his aunt, Andrea Chrestman, and I were at Northwest. It seems like yesterday!
Stephen Elgin is a teen now!! He turned 13 last week and celebrated with a paintball birthday party. Happy birthday, Stephen!!
If you enjoy wonderful food - country or Creole - Michael’s Country and Creole Restaurant is the place for you! Michael Pratt has transplanted himself to Holly Springs and has brought us the flavor of Louisiana. If you have never had Creole food, you are missing out! All of his dishes are brilliantly seasoned and cooked to perfection!
His menu has a wide variety of dishes, including a local favorite - cornmeal crusted catfish. Having lived in the vicinity of New Orleans for a while, we got very familiar with po boys. After a visit to Michael’s Country and Creole, it all came flooding back! He has a great selection of po boys available including a fantastic spice rubbed chicken breast, which has a roasted pepper remoulade served on it. Fried green tomatoes a favorite of yours? His are served with a side of garlic mayonnaise for that added bit of flavor!
If you happen to have a hankering for something on the lighter side, his blackened chicken gumbo and smokey tomato soups will hit the spot! Red beans and rice and etoufee are served in almost every restaurant in New Orleans. Thanks to Michael, we now have that option here in town! He has paired the succulent flavors of shrimp and crawfish together in his etoufee, which is served over rice, and added smoked sausage to his already flavorful red beans and rice to give it that extra something special!
If after your meal you still have room left for dessert, there is a piece of cake that is simply to die for - “My grandma’s pig lickin’ cake frosted with a mandarin orange butter-cream.” Definitely something worth saving room for, or to take home to eat later!
Friendly service with a smile and over the top food are what you will receive if you go to Michael’s Country and Creole restaurant! They are located at 405 East Van Dorn.
For those of you who grew up here, it is the old Hut “at the foot of the hill!” You will not be disappointed with anything you pick from the menu - he will have you coming back again and again!

Museum move is in the home stretch
We are in the home stretch of moving these days, but we probably won’t be open until October for visitors. We are making new history everyday (we can hardly keep up with it). The trouble with history is that every time it repeats itself, the cost goes up, and this isn’t a convenient time for that. Our museum will be magnificent when it is finished. Remember, our museum is purely local. We need monetary gifts to put the finishing touch on it. We are tax deductible, just like your church. Just send gifts to us at P.O. Box 806 or to 220 College Avenue, Holly Springs, MS 38635.
The Lois and Lisa Show
Our channel 99 (punch it in) is doing great with local talent. On it we always have music, recipes with Mississippi’s best cooks, interviews with interesting people – politicians, story tellers, teachers, and always a “show and tell” segment that is exciting. This week, we have the new Methodist preacher and the new cobblers who have opened a shoe repair place across the street as our guests.
