Here is a rare photo of my grandparents restaurant... Treado's Town House. It was located on Hwy 301 in Sylvania, GA. I must brag for a minute and tell you that it was once world famous. (Jimmy Carter dined there during his campaign). But whether it was or wasn't really famous...it was always famous in my eyes!
Inside that building (which is still standing today (but is closed)) are some of my fondest memories of my childhood. It is there, that I fell in love with food! We (being Baptist) would rush out of church on Sunday's to try and beat the Methodist to be the first in line for the buffet! Not a Sunday went by that we didn't eat there...and if we did miss lunch...we were there for Sunday night dinner.
Once you opened the door at the Town House, you were hit with the smells of home. Everyone knew one another and everyone walked away happy. My grandparents created a legacy through their restaurant... places like the Town House are a rarity these days. I miss it and what it represented to our family.
Before restaurants bought all of their salad dressings pre-made... restaurants like the Town House would actually make them from scratch. I thought I would share the famous Town House Thousand Island Dressing in honor of today's blog.
Town House Thousand Island Dressing
1 Cup Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
1/2 Cup Chili Sauce
1 Chopped Boiled Egg
1 Tablespoon Chopped Pickles
Now is the guessing part: (use your taste buds)
Small amount of Grated Onion
Mix All Ingredients and chill until ready to serve.
**Note to those of you from Sylvania who read my blog: Sorry... but the famous Cinnamon Rolls Recipe will never be revealed on my blog...I was sworn to secrecy upon birth! ** I will put other great recipes from the restaurant in the months to follow...leave me a comment and let me know your favorites.
