Travels in the South – Bacon Version

Let’s talk shall we.  I help mom/dad post all of the time with their Travels in the South and it’s about time I shared one of my own.  Right?  Can I get a snort-snort.  As some of you know, every morning for breakfast I get a cup of piggy chow and a little Cheerios to start my day.  All of us have to be a little heart smart these days.  Well over the weekend, mom found me something that was better than my normal oats Cheerios.  I know!  I didn’t think that was possible either.  I oinked and told her that she was wrong that nothing could ever – EVER – replace my morning Cheerios.  This pig has standards.

Let me tell you my friends – I was wrong!  Yep, you can repeat that in conversation.  I, Bacon, was wrong!  What mom got me was better than my oats Cheerios.  Why do you ask?  Because there’s one other thing in this world that I love more than life itself.  What is it my friends?  That’s right – strawberries.  I could eat my weight in them and trust me that’s a lot of weight.

Have you tried these marvelous strawberry Cheerios?  I’ve even caught daddy eating them out of my box.  Tsk-tsk daddy – get your own!  I haven’t had anything this good from Cheerios since they came out with Pumpkin Spice last year.  And yes I shared those with my mommy ❤  See I love mommy.

IF you see them in your market, BUY THEM ALL.  They are a limited edition and going FAST.  Tell them Bacon said so – snorts!

Travels in the South

Hello friends – welcome to another week of Travels in the South.  Today I bring you one of my dad’s favorite sandwiches.  Doesn’t it look delicious?  This is called a Monte Cristo.  Whenever dad sees it on the menu at a restaurant, he has to try it. Are you asking yourself what exactly is a Monte Cristo?

Well, a Monte Cristo sandwich has smoked ham, smoked turkey and two cheeses in the sandwich.  The sandwich is then lightly battered and fried until golden brown.  See I told you about us before being in the south and frying anything and everything – snorts with piggy laughter.  After the Monte Cristo comes out of the fryer, it’s dusted with powdered sugar, cut into corners and served with an awesome raspberry preserve for dipping.

Be prepared to get messy when you eat this creation.  There will be powdered sugar everywhere.  There will also be groans of OMP this is so good!  So the next time you check out a menu at a restaurant, look for the Monte Cristo.  You won’t be disappointed.

Travels in the South

If you had to describe comfort in a picture, this would be mom’s.  It doesn’t look pretty but mom says it is totally awesome.  What is it you ask?  This creation is called Chocolate Cream Pie and it’s found out a place called Waffle House.  They don’t have them all of the time.  Usually they have them in the freezer and they forget to put them out – snorts with piggy laughter.  But mom loves this pie.  It’s her comfort pie.

She hasn’t had one lately.  This picture was actually taken several weeks ago.  But every once in a while, mom still looks at this picture and dreams about how good it tastes.

Do you have ‘comfort’ food like mom?  If so, what kind?  Please share my sweet friends. ❤

Travels in the South

  Welcome friends to another edition of Travels in the South.  Today is being brought to you by daddy.  Recently McDonald’s launched a bigger Big Mac called the Grand Mac.  Now dad loves his Big Mac’s of any kind but he has been opting out of trying this because of eating clean.  Well this past weekend, he couldn’t help himself.  He had to try one and of course mom was there to interview him and take pictures – that’s my mom.  She didn’t try one or any of his french fries – go mom and your will power!

Now this is from the McDonald’s website:  “A regular Big Mac is two pure beef patties, Big Mac sauce, sandwiched between a sesame seed bun, American cheese, crisp lettuce, onions and pickles.”  And a regular Big Mac has 540 calories.

Now here is the description from McDonald’s website on the Grand Mac:  “Sink into 1/3 pound of real beef seasoned with salt & pepper sandwiched between a sesame seed bun.  All dressed with special sauce, crisp lettuce, onions, pickles and two slices of American cheese.”  And a Grand Mac has a whopping 860 calories!

Okay, a little more beef, an extra slice of cheese and 320 more calories.  And the pictures on television and on the McDonald’s website show there is a size difference and we all know that size matters, right?  So what did daddy think about the Grand Mac?

Daddy shrugged his shoulders at it.  The Grand Mac that he got did not look much bigger than a regular Big Mac.  It didn’t taste any different per say.  It was just okay.  In fact, if dad had to do it all over again, he said he would pass.  It just wasn’t that awesome.  So there you go – from the dad’s mouth.

Travels in the South

Hello friends to another week of Travels in the South.  This week mom wants to share something that she recently found one night while her and dad were out on date night.

Now mom is not a huge wine drinker – I mean define huge, right?  Mom will have an occasional glass of wine every once in a while – not too often though since she’s been trying to change her eating habits.

But one of mom’s favorite types of wine is Moscato.  And this night mom tried a Moscato Delle Venezie Primo Amore.

Mom fell in LOVE with this wine.  She talked about it for nights afterwards.  See the glass of wine – it has little bubbles in the wine.  And who doesn’t like bubbles – rolls piggy eyes.  No seriously mom said this wine was smooth and wonderful – one of the best Moscato’s she has ever had.

So my friends, if you see this bottle in the market, buy one and try it.

Travels in the South

Welcome my friends to another edition of Travels in the South.  Today I want to share something with you that my mom recently found.  She was so intrigued by this that she had to buy a bag for her and dad to try.  They are cashews which are already yummy.  But these cashews are roasted with blueberries, cranberries and quinoa (which mom has always wanted to try).  Mom and dad had one word to explain the taste.  Are you ready for that one word?  Here is goes – YUMMY!   Mom found these at the local Cracker Barrel restaurant.  If you have a Cracker Barrel in your area, pick yourself up a bag.  They are so very tasty!

Travels in the South

Welcome friends to another Travels in the South.  This week mom/dad went seafood.  At our local Joe’s Crab Shack, they have an appetizer that mom/dad like to get and share.  Pair it with a salad and you can say perfect meal.  What is this appetizer?  Joe’s Crab Shack calls it Crab Nachos.  Mom/dad call it a little heaven.

It has almost everything in it – lots of delicious crab dip, pico de gallo, black beans, lettuce, corn, cheese and an awesome avocado lime dressing.  And there are plenty of nachos to scoop everything up with and enjoy.  And the bonus is that the nachos don’t get soggy.  You know how sometimes they get limp and wet with regular nacho toppings.

So the next time you are craving something seafood but with a curb of delight, check out your local Joe’s Crab Shack for this delicious appetizer… or make it a meal like my mom/dad do.
