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!

Welcome my friends to another edition of Travels in the South. As you know, my mom/dad are foodies. And one of dad’s favorite foods is pizza. And don’t think that the south doesn’t make good pizza. Dad believes that the South is right up there with some of the best places when it comes to good pie. And when mom/dad go out for a good pizza, they always get more than enough so that they can have leftovers for the next couple of days. Mom likes to think of these meals as “Meals that keep on giving.” Plus it means she doesn’t have to cook, smart huh?
So mom/dad went this past weekend to one of their favorite pizza places. Once there, mom saw that they had cajun french fries. Now, that’s way up her ally – the mommy LOVES french fries. Not just any fries – they have to be extra crispy. You know – no wimpy limpy fries on mom’s plate – snorts with piggy laughter. They have to have standablility when it comes to dunking them in ketchup. Mom is weird like that and trust me – over time it has ran over to daddy. So they started with these delicious fries that had just a bit of kick but not overpowering kick. Mom called them awesome and said that she could have eaten the entire basket. But she didn’t. She was a good girl and split them with the daddy.
Then it came time to ordering the main event. Dad went for the pan crust meat lovers with cheddar crust and mom went for the hand tossed pepperoni lovers pretzel crust. Now even this oinker has to admit that these pies look awesome. Oh and mom/dad always get their pizza double cut and light sauce. What do you think about these masterpieces? Do you like pizza? What are your favorite toppings?
And remember what I said about meals that keep on giving? Both pizzas, french fries, two sodas and tip came to $20.34. Now, take that price and divided by three meals (cause they have dinner Monday and Tuesday night) and you come up with $6.78 per night = that’s only $3.39 per person for fabulous eats.
