Soulful Southern Supper

10 of us went to Sweetie Pie and Poppy's in Oakland yesterday for their Sunday buffet. It's on 52nd and MLK for those of you who know Oakland. They're only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sunday is the only day they do the buffet. Buffet is $15.95 which includes your drink. On the buffet:

  • White rice
  • Butter (lima) beans
  • Black-Eyed Peas
  • Pinto Beans
  • Collard Greens
  • Sweet Potatoes w/ brown sugar and nutmeg
  • Fried Chicken
  • Fried Catfish
  • Egg Noodles with Chicken and Mushrooms
  • Some sort of stewed chicken
  • Ribs
  • Mac and Cheese
  • Cornbread Stuffing
  • Gravy
  • Iceburg Salad
  • Coleslaw
  • Potato Salad
  • Cranberry Sauce
  • Corn Muffins
  • Dinner Rolls
  • German Chocolate Cake
  • Sweet Potato Pie w/ graham crust and chili pecans
  • Cupcakes
  • White cake
  • Brownies
  • Cookies

It was insane! Their iced tea was sweet (of course) and had a bit of lemony flavor I enjoyed. I loved the catfish. Their veggies are all vegetarian, which was great for our veggie friends, but I would have appreciated some ham hock in the beans. The sweet potatoes got comments of "how'd they do that?" The sweet potato pie was also delicious. Mac and cheese almost too cheesy - and not with velveta! Gravy and stuffing were perfect! I've never enjoyed buffet food so much.

Service was quick and very friendly. We also went at 3, so we missed most of the church crowd. Though in our jeans, Joy commented that next time she wanted to dress up. We were really glad we'd walked there because we desperately needed the walk back.

Hi Travelingem,

I am contacting you regarding a blog survey I am conducting. I am a Ph.D. candidate in Mass Communication at Penn State and my dissertation project consists of a survey that looks at women bloggers’ perceived motivations for and effects of their blogging.

I am sending the survey to a number of bloggers, and I would like to invite you to participate in it as well. Participation should take approximately 15 minutes of your time. I would appreciate it tremendously if you would be willing to take the survey. If you decide to do so, please follow the link below:


I would be very happy to share the findings of my study with you once it is completed!

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Thank you in advance,
