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

Can you say buffet fun?  Mom/dad went out with some friends to a local hamburger joint called Krystal’s.  Look it up to see if you have one in the area.  Kind of like White Castle but better… we think.  A group of four went out to eat and got all of this food and four drinks for $15.00 – not bad huh?  We call that cheap eats here.  They have miniature square hamburgers that are awesome hot off of the grill.  Their chicken wings are also awesome – they have a little heat though and will give you a kick.  Have you tried any of these?

What is this gooey yummy awesomeness you ask?  Can you guess?  Mom/dad found one of their favorites at a local restaurant they sometimes frequent.   I believe dad said the menu called them Mac and Cheese Bites. Dad was really digging them cause they were really cheesy – like him. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. I just had to go there. Mom said they were okay and that she liked her Mac and cheese the old fashioned way. Have you ever had a creation like this?

What is this you ask my friends? Mom called it heaven on earth.  Mom/dad found this delicacy way before mom’s surgery. It’s fried Twinkies.  Yep – you read right.  Fried Twinkies.  And when they fry the Twinkie, it makes the white cream even creamier.  Dad loves them.  Have you ever tried them?

Travels in the South

Do you know what that is in the picture?  It’s the snack of the south… boiled peanuts.  Mom grew up with boiled peanuts straight out of the hot pot.  Dad not so much.  But since they’ve been married, mom has gotten dad hooked on these deletable salty morsels of yum.  And yeah, I love them too.  You can find them all over the south here at roadside stands and corner markets.  They usually give you a scoop right out of the boiling water into these double bags.  Double bags because you need one bag to put your shells into.  Have you had these before?  A lot of people will even put peanuts in their soda.  It’s a southern thing.  Trust me – don’t knock it until you try it says mom.  Snorts with piggy laughter!

Okay my friends.  Take a good look at that picture.  Look familiar?  These delectable weird shaped things are called Moondrop Grapes.  What?  Really?  Yes really.  They are look like moon beams.  When mom started talking about them to me and dad, we just laughed at her.  But she kept saying they were real and we *were* going to try them.  Me and dad just looked at each other like mom had finally slipped over that fine edge of sanity – snorts with piggy laughter.

Nana came down Saturday and her and mom/dad went off for a bit.  When they came back, mom was beaming with moonbeams because she found the moondrop grapes.  Say that several times huh?  She made all of us eat one together.  And you know what?  They are awesome!  They are a bit sweeter than a normal grape but yummy.  You want to eat more than one and we all did.  Dad said their shape reminded him of our boiled peanut shells here in the south that are also that long.

Have you tried these before?  You gotta find some if you haven’t.  They are a seasonal item.  Mom got these at our local Kroger where they were on sale.  Bon appetite!

Boo! Deep South

Some friends of ours in the deep south here took a picture of their home a couple of weeks ago.  When they were looking at the pictures, they saw something that kind of stood out for them.  They didn’t see it while they were taking pictures of their house.  Do you see it?  Would you go back into your home if this was your crib?
