Travels in the South

IMG_0609

Doesn’t that look delicious?  A couple of weeks back mom/dad were craving pizza which is unusual.  Well not for dad.  He’s always craving pizza of any sort.  But mom, she never craves pizza.  So when she does, dad takes full advantage of the situation.  So today I’m going to let daddy finish this Travels with the South.

When the wifey craves pizza, I know exactly where to head to make us both happy.  There is a local pizza joint that has stuffed crust pizza.  The wife loves stuffed crust – all of that extra cheese in the crust of the pizza.  It somehow makes eating pizza seem so much more of a delightful experience.  This day I even went one step further for my honey.  This pizza place also offers seasoned crusts.  So today I got stuffed crust with a pretzel crust.  Can you say yum because that’s exactly what we both said… almost at the same time.

And we know that I’m a meat eater so I added my favorite toppings:  pepperoni, italian sausage, ham, bacon, beef and black olives.  I have to admit that this pizza came out amazing!  Even the waitstaff was drooling.

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 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?

img_8291So 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.

Adventures with Mom/Dad

Hello my friends.  If you have been following my blog for any length of time, then you know that my mom/dad are crae-crae, crazy, over the top, not swimming with both oars or shall we say can not go out into public without getting into trouble.  You understand where I’m coming from?

This weekend was no exception.  I’m telling you, mom/dad left to their own devices not under anipal care, can be committed somewhere with matching white jackets that tie in the back.  At this point, you are probably asking yourself well what the heck did they do this time?

Dad had been telling mom all week that Saturday night, he was taking her somewhere special, somewhere with pizzazz with great food and that the place was very popular.  Come Saturday night, mom donned some special clothes and met dad in the front room.  Dad told her, “Honey you are way overdressed.”  So mom went and put on some jeans and a t-shirt.  That’s when she started thinking what kind of “nice” place was this restaurant.

They get into the Jeep and dad gives mom instructions.  That’s when… give me a moment to snort with piggy laughter… they arrived at the special restaurant with pizzazz – the local Sam’s Warehouse.  OMP – mom busted out laughing so hard and was thankful she changed clothes for this special outing.

Mom/dad entered the warehouse and had the person at the door check their membership.  That’s when dad told the greeter that he needed a table for two.  Mom just shook her head and laughed.

So mom/dad find the best seat in the house and decide what they want for dinner.  They chose pizza – astonishing huh?  But not just any pizza.  Dad referred to it as the best pizza this south of Atlanta.  And the picture really does not do it justice.  That one pizza slice is as big as a regular paper plate – or fine china as daddy called it that night.  So, two slices of pizza and two drinks for an astonishing $4.00 date night. Can you beat that?  Snorts with piggy laughter.  So, the next time you are at your local Sam’s Club, check out the amazing pizza… not that I would know personally because mom/dad didn’t bring me home a piggy bag.

Food Blog

  Hey friends – just to let you know, mom has taken down her food blog.  She is going to let me post pictures that I find on her iPhone from when her and daddy escape the Hotel Thompson.  She said it was something about trying to keep up with two blogs… which I don’t get because I take care of my blog – snorts.  With that in mind, let me show you one of mom and dad’s latest escapades.

Daddy is a HUGE pizza guy.  He could probably eat it every day of the week.  He has been wanting to try a new pizza that Pizza Hut is offering.  It’s called the Hot Dog pizza.  Yep, you read that right.  A Hot Dog Pizza.  Rolls piggy eyes – really mom and dad?  Thank goodness this pizza didn’t make it the house and they shared it with friends.

It is a regular pepperoni and cheese pizza but the twist is in the crust.  The crust is hot dog pretzel bits.  I asked mom if she liked it because she is usually not a huge pizza gal.  She said, “SQUEALS – it is so good!”  So there you go.  If you are up for an adventure, mom/dad highly recommend this new pizza from Pizza Hut.  Let us know if you try it and what you think 🙂
