‘Counting On’: Ben & Jessa Duggar Risk COVID With Kids for Buttered Biscuit

Counting On‘s Jessa Duggar, Ben Seewald, and their kids needed comfort food – despite the risk of coronavirus. It seems the pandemic wasn’t going to stop them from getting to Buttered Biscuit. No diners wore face masks in the restaurant. So, perhaps Arkansas residents are unafraid of COVID-19 based on what we saw with their family.

Counting On: Country Cooking Calls Jessa Duggar

Jessa Duggar from Counting On is one of the Duggars that caught flack during the national lockdown. Though Arkansas was never truly under a shelter-in-place order, people thought Jessa Duggar should stay inside. Instead, Jessa braved COVID-19 with Ben and the kids. Why? Jessa needed her favorite order, The Farmer’s Son, from a local eatery.

It seems the fear of the pandemic calmed, and grabbing food was the goal for the young Counting On Duggar-Seewald family. Besides that, it’s a matter of staying healthy mentally. How long can you stay inside with three young kids that have so much energy? Even though they have a backyard, it’s undoubtedly a challenge for Jessa Duggar and also Ben Seewald.

And the other diners seemed oblivious to the reality star Duggar crew dining nearby.

Ben, from Counting On, on TLC’s Tuesday nights at 8, looked like he was packing as many carbs into his meal as possible. Beans and bread for the win. But there was a delicious looking omelet on the plate as well. Good job keeping healthy, Ben Seewald. The kids scored tasty eats too – including some eggs and other breakfast goodies.

While some might judge Counting On stars Jessa Duggar or Ben Seewald for taking the kids out to eat during a pandemic, it looks like the place had social distancing in place. While some fans were critical of the Duggar-Seewald outing, many others saw it as a good thing for Ben to get out with Jess and the kids for a little break.
