Hominy, Oklahoma has a quaint downtown. Small with what looked like a sodapop and ice-cream counter store -just like in "It's a Wonderful Life" starring Jimmy Stewart. Where he works as a kid. Unfortunately for us it was closed. However we did spot a sign for a historical site in Hominy, Oklahoma for the "Drummond Home". Which for you bloggers out there might be familiar with that last name because the "pioneer woman" Ree Drummond" married into this famous ranching family of Oklahoma.
My girls were thrilled to stop by and take a peak around the historical home not because of the ranching history, nor the Oklahoma history that the home represents -sorry! (more info on the Drummond family here: http://digital.library.okstate.edu/encyclopedia/entries/D/DR007.html
But because the have tried a lot of the yummy recipes from her cookbook, and have seen her new cooking show on the food network with me.
Hominy, is proud of their Indian heritage and history because paintings were seen on almost every building side driving through the downtown area.
We did not find a place to eat in Hominy though I did see some sign about fried catfish, the kids out voted hubby and me. So we drove on into the town of Skiatook, Oklahoma where we ate at "Señor Salsa". Good prices, the food was however just ok, not memorable. Then we headed back home after some more site seeing, however that is a post for another day.
