Yesterday we piled in the truck about 3:30 with our chosen Plat books for this trip (Decatur and Shelby) and our goal being to eat at Stones Family Restaurant in Millhousen! First we headed towards Marietta to check out one of our farms to see how the crop was looking. We then meandered across southern Shelby County, visiting the little town of Lewis Creek, following the Flat Rock river to Geneva, where we
Stones Family Restaurant is in a large old brick building, with a huge front porch. Saturday night offered a buffet of pork loin and fried chicken. Sides included sauerkraut, German potato salad, cucumbers and onion (if you like this kind of thing these were some of the best around), green beans, and mashed potatoes. A very family run feeling accompanied our visit.
Completely full, we headed home up 421, staying off of the interstate. At Shelbyville, we drove around the area near the Little Blue River, where though living near here for all my life, I had never spent much time here. Then through Shelbyville, back onto the old familiar Boggstown Road, which led us back to Johnson County, then to our home, where we got a bucket of feed, went to check the cows and feed the hogs. We were back home about dark.
It is amazing the entertainment we can find anywhere we look, close to home or far away. Our family is definitely good sports for this kind of laid back adventure. We have a pop-up camper and love to camp in Indiana State Parks and we always include a day trip such as this in the area we are staying and have seen some really cool stuff that otherwise we would of never seen!
