It's a place where you can get down-home food - fried okra, smothered steak, hot cornbread - and lemonade comes in a jar. The antiques and old product memorabilia adorning Cracker Barrel Old Country Store restaurants evoke a nostalgic early-American charm. Music was missing from the homey ambience. But not anymore. To extend the traditional theme, Cracker Barrel has created a new independent label, CB Music Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of the interstate restaurant chain that records a variety of traditional and ethnic music.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - A woman who said she found a mouse in her soup at a Cracker Barrel restaurant last month made up the story, the local prosecutor's office announced. Carla Patterson, 36, and her son, Ricky Patterson, 20, both of Hampton, Va., were arrested and charged Tuesday with attempted extortion and conspiracy to commit a felony after they tried to get Cracker Barrel to give them money, said Howard E. Gwynn, the commonwealth's attorney in Newport News. Carla Patterson was eating at the Newport News restaurant May 8 when she said she discovered the mouse in a bowl of vegetable soup.

Stanley Levy from Baltimore was in search of the recipe for the cheesy potato casserole that he enjoyed at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Pennsylvania. He said it reminded him of macaroni and cheese but instead of pasta it was made with potatoes. A search of the Cracker Barrel website did not yield any recipes, so I contacted the company's office of corporate communications outside Nashville. Tenn., and described the dish that Levy was seeking. They thought that in all likelihood it was the popular hash brown casserole.

Lady Jane the ladybug, Hawaiian Hound and Pancho the donkey are about to make a comeback. They are Dream Pets, three in a series of stuffed animals made by R. Dakin & Co. from 1957 to 1984, when the company stopped producing them. The pets return to stores in March. Roger Dakin developed the pets in 1957, after he became intrigued by the packing method Japanese factory workers used to ship his toy trains. Workers used scraps of velveteen, packed with sawdust, to create various stuffed animals.

Summer entertaining tends to be casual, but that doesn't mean it can't be elegant and tasty -- and easy. Cookbook author and entertainment specialist Melanie Barnard has teamed up with Kraft USA and Cracker Barrel Cheese to create a booklet of simple entertaining ideas with tips, recipes and a coupon. One suggestion is crackers topped with slices of sharp Cheddar cheese, a slice of cherry tomato and a leaf of basil -- remarkably tasty and simple. For a free copy of the booklet, print your name and address and send to: Get-Together Ideas From Cracker Barrel Cheese, P.O. Box 4022, Monticello, Minn.

NEAR EXIT 351, I-40, TEXAS-- --April 1985 - exactly 22 years ago - in a Sports Illustrated article, author George Plimpton introduced the world to a baseball prospect like none other, a pitcher named Sidd Finch whose eccentricities were as unbelievable as his fastball, clocked by New York Mets officials at 168 mph. One week after Plimpton exposed the Mets' top-secret prodigy, Finch disappeared. Or at least he seemed to. Perhaps he's who you really are. Do you have anything that would prove it?

What can Michael Khudak possibly say about the Burger King Whopper? A Whopper is a Whopper --not necessarily what Khudak had in mind for lunch this Tuesday afternoon, but it's a distance yet to Newport News, Va., and Interstate 95 is Interstate 95. "It's the first time I've had a Whopper in 10 years," says Khudak, who stopped en route from New Jersey at the Chesapeake House in Cecil County. He'd rather have a turkey sandwich, "but there's no choice." Well, maybe. As an alternative to going to Burger King, the interstate traveler bound on an East Coast summer road trip may also choose, say, McDonald's.
