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.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PERCY PIG!
Do you know who Percy Pig is? He turns 21 today – yay!
Percy Pig is a brand of pig shaped gummy raspberry, strawberry, cherry and grape flavored candies licensed in Germany from Marks & Spencer.
Mommy has Percy Pig on her Facebook page and they posted this morning about Percy’s birthday. Isn’t that so exciting? A pig shaped candy? Who would have ever thought that? I think it’s fantastic! A candy that looks like well ME! 🙂
Have you ever seen these in the store? Mom helped me and went on line to find a picture of the candies.

Now, do you recognize them? I wonder if mommy can get some here in the United States? I bet they would be wonderful!
