Travels in the South

Welcome my friends to another week of Travels in the South.  You know my daddy, he loves his hamburgers.  A couple of weeks ago he and mom found a restaurant that was a little hole in the wall.  It wasn’t much on the outside but they were known for their burgers.  And dad said they were right.  Their burgers were out of this world delicious.  Now, this is not something you should eat everyday for sure, especially when someone – snort mom snort – is suppose to be watching those calories.  But I had to share their meal.

Both burgers had eight ounce angus beef patties.  And that is the only thing they had in common – snorts with piggy laughter.

Dad’s had a hard fried egg, bacon (gulps), melted Jack cheese and pickles on it.  Mom had bacon (gulps), a portobello mushroom, red onions and pickles.  I couldn’t believe the size of mom’s burger.  She couldn’t even wrap her mouth around it – HA!   And of course she had to get daddy to help her finish it.  Dad had onion rings with his burger.  Mom had a salad so at least she *tried* to somewhat healthy.

Travels in the South

Welcome my friends to another week of Travels in the South.  My dad says that sometimes you just need a good hamburger, something solid and substantial.  This week he wanted just that – an awesome hamburger.  You’ve heard us talk about the great pizza that a restaurant called Mellow Mushroom has but did you know they have build your own burgers?  Daddy saw it on the menu and just had to try it… of course while mom had a wonderfully delicious salad – poor mom.

The burger is 100% black angus beef topped with dad’s favorites:  pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, cheddar and swiss cheeses and bacon – gulps.  Dad said it was a handful and was so delicious.  Of course, it did take two hands to eat and plenty of napkins.  I guess that’s a good sign to a great juicy burger, huh?

So if you have a Mellow Mushroom close by, check them out for their burgers.  They also have vegan burgers which mom says sound delicious.

Travels in the South

Every once in a while, your body just craves a good steak – well so says mom/dad.  And when mom craves steak, dad takes full advantage and takes her to a local steakhouse that they both love.  On this date, mom/dad shared this plate above, of course with a side salad.  This is one of mom’s favorites – a ribeye steak fire grilled on an open flame, medium please.  The juices were still running and mom licked her lips before jumping in with both feet to eat her way out.  And of course by splitting the meal with daddy, that does mean 1/2 the calories.  Dad said it was an awesome dinner.  When was the last time you had steak calling your name?

Travels in the South

Go ahead – check this dog out – snorts with piggy laughter.  Do you remember the Courthouse Tavern that mom/dad went to a couple of weeks ago?  You can check that posting out here.  Well, Houdini had a spa appointment this past Saturday in that same area.  So since they were in the same area, guess what mom/dad decided to do.  Yep – visit the restaurant once again.

This time, dad again went for a hamburger.  Shaking my head –  he’s so predictable.  But mom, she wanted something different.  She went for what they call a Jazzy Junkyard dog.  All beef (thank goodness-snorts) with a side of steak fries.  Now those fries are just the way mom likes – not soggy but crispy and wonderful.  And on her dog, she added cheddar, some kind of meat she told me I’d probably be better not knowing and fresh jalapenos.  You want a bite, don’t you?

.

Mom said the hot dog was awesome but she didn’t care much for the bun.  The bun was toasted and although that gives a great flavor, the bun was kind of stiff and hard which is not good.  So if she orders it again, she will ask them not to grill the bun.
