Travels in the South

Hello dear friends.  Welcome to another week of Travels in the South.  This week, we are focusing on daddy and his hamburger passion.  He loves hamburgers.  I mean really LOVES.  Every time we go somewhere, he has to try their burgers out to see how they are on the taste scale.  This week is no different.

This hamburger was so big that the restaurant had to put a huge steak knife in it to hold it together in transit to the table.  It’s a one pound patty, cheese, and gulps – bacon, with pickles and a hard fried egg.  Talk about getting all of the your food groups into one plate.  And if you haven’t noticed in the past with dad’s burgers, he likes a little mayo on his burgers – no ketchup or mustard or tomato or lettuce.

What did dad think of this concoction?  He gave it two thumbs up and said he would order it again.  What do you like on your burgers?

Travels in the South

Sometimes you want food that just screams comfort to you.  My mom’s comfort food when she is feeling really bad – are you ready for this – is a Happy Meal from McDonald’s.  Can you believe that?  She has been recuperating from her surgery, some days are good and some days are testing her ability not to scream.  Well one of her friends brought her a hamburger Happy Meal ordered with extra happy for her one day.  Wasn’t that awesome?  I’m not sure if it was the Happy Meal or the extra happy that made mom’s day but it did.

Mom had to take this picture of everything.  That is a hamburger, two bags of cut up apples (I guess that was the extra happy, you think?) a small fries, a drink and of course a girl toy.  And yes, please check out the size of that fries in relationship to the hamburger.  Do you think they could be any smaller?  Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter.

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

Welcome my friends to another week of Travels in the South.  This week is all about daddy.  Sometimes he craves bad things.  It’s okay.  It happens.  This week he was craving a hamburger.  Not just any hamburger though.  He likes something called the Royale at a local hamburger joint.  This thing has the works – hamburger, cheese, a fried egg and something that this little oinker won’t mention but you can see in the picture.  This gigantic burger is happily served with french fries.  Does it look good to you?

Daddy says it is messy and once you start, it’s hard to put down because it falls all over the place.  Have you ever had such a creation?

Until next time, happy eating my friends ❤

Travels in the South

Hello friends – welcome to another week of Travels in the South.  Now we all know that mom is trying to do right – trying to live a healthier life. She believes in the 90-10 system.  90% of the time she eats right while the other 10% of the time she has what she wants – within reason.  Well this past weekend, mom was craving a hamburger… which is weird because that’s something she doesn’t usually crave.  So her and dad went to a local burger joint.  And mom did good.  She really did… okay for the most part – remember 90-10 system – snorts with piggy laughter.

So what did mom eat?  This is typical of things she orders when her and dad go out.  This is called a Buffalo Wingman’s Burger.  What makes it that?  It has a blackened beef patty, pimento cheese spread, spicy pickles, red onions, a spicy mayo made with Chipotle pepper sauce and then topped with two buffalo wings – oh and mom got it bunless with a side salad.  See what I’m talking about on 90-10 system?  Sounds delicious and mom said it tasted even better.

Wonder Woman What?!

There I was this morning looking at the news on my i-Pad.  You know minding my own piggy business in a world all to myself.  That’s when a friend of mine on Facebook showed on her page a picture of some wondrous food.  I mean BIG time knock you on your piggy tail awesome food.  I’m talking my daddy would absolutely LOSE his mind with this hamburger – see below.  Was I joking?

So, I did what any decent pigson would do.  I finished reading the article and then tapped down the hall to dad’s room.  Of course I would say run but then we would all know I was lying.  This pig doesn’t run.  It’s bad on my knees.  Oh my bad – I don’t have knees – snorts with piggy laughter.  Trust me, once dad saw the article he quickly forgave me for the slight hoof mark I left on his ankle – only slight.

This monster of a burger is courtesy of a restaurant in Tampa, Florida called Datz and is called the Amazon Warrior Burger.  It was created for the new movie Wonder Woman that is now currently showing in theatres.   It was only available for one day – bummer.  It would have been an awesome trip.  So what makes this burger warrior material?  You tell me – here are the ingredients:

The bun is sourdough and decorated with white cheddar and American cheese starts.  The bun has also been dyed red, gold and blue.  There are two beef patties broked up – wait for it – by a slice of pineapple!

So, what do you think my friends.  Are you game for a warrior burger?  Licks my piggy lips now.
