Hey guys, it’s Ashton! I have a HUGE announcement. I have decided to become a construction worker!! ⁣

My friends at visitjacksonms sent us to the mschildsmuseum and I learned how to operate a tractor! I’m hooked! ⁣

Thumbs up if you think I’d make a cool construction worker 😎⁣

Are you brunching today? If so- where at and what are you having? Let me know in the comments section below! ⁣

On my recent visit to Jackson, MS our last meal of the trip was brunch at themanshipjxn and it was a great way to close out the trip. ⁣

I went for the crispy roasted duck leg over smoked gouda grits topped with a fried egg. And as good as that sounds, it tasted even better! ⁣

Would you ever stay in a haunted hotel? Let me know yes or no in the comments section below!⁣

Rumor has it that a Civil War soldier named Joseph haunts one of the upstairs rooms of the fairview_inn in Jackson, Mississippi, where I recently stayed. ⁣

An investigation into the hotel by one psychic claims she found a ghostly portal on the property. Another guest claimed the ghost of a child could be heard rolling marbles down the stairs at night! ⁣

But don't let rumors of hauntings scare you off- I never spotted a ghost during my stay at The Fairview! ⁣

What is one of your favorite childhood foods that you don't really eat now that you're an adult? Let me know in the comments section below!⁣

For me, it's definitely corndogs so you can imagine how excited I was when thepigandpint set these grown up corndogs on the table in front of us. What makes them grown up you as? Pork belly. Yes- these are pork belly corndogs. I've never heard of these before- what a time to be alive. And yes, they were every bit as delicious as they sound. ⁣

Thank you to finditinfondren for arranging our amazing (first) lunch here yesterday- this place will definitely be in my upcoming guide detailing where to eat in Jackson! ⁣

One of the best things we've had on our visit has been this insanely delicious homemade biscuit with fried catfish and slow from crazycateatup. I would come back to #VisitJacksonMS again just to have this one more time!⁣

What is your very favorite kind of pasta? Let me know in the comments section!⁣

We loved this dish of homemade gnocchi with braised short ribs finished with freshly shaved black truffles that we had at parlormarket. ⁣

Not only does Parlor Market make their own pasta in house but they also cure their own charcuterie-- seriously impressive. ⁣

While I'm a loyal fan of loverococo.okc in my hometown of Oklahoma City I have to admit these from charofjxn were also really delicious. eatlivetraveldrink and I sampled these during our visit to Char located in highlandvillagejxn. ⁣

What is your absolute favorite dessert- the one you can never pass up a bite of? Let me know in the comments section below!⁣

I always mention that I don't have much of a sweet tooth but I'll almost always try a bite of dessert in the name of research. I have to admit this bread pudding from crazycateatup was really tasty! ⁣
