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?

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 ❤
Sometimes the best treat can be the easiest treat. Really it can. Let’s look at this week’s edition of Travels in the South. Mom/dad found something that even this oinker can wrap his piggy jowls around and enjoy fully. Two words for you – strawberry shortcake. Understand now? Look at that deliciousness. So simple yet so delicious. Don’t let the bare basics fool you.
This pure awesomeness is made out of simple sliced pound cake covered with sliced strawberries, strawberry syrup and topped with whip cream. How could you not want to lick the plate… and you do, don’t you? I won’t tell anyone.
And this dessert is just wonderful for the heat outside. A simple dessert to eat for dessert or like mom did, for dinner – snorts with piggy laughter.
Check back with me next week my friends for another edition of Travels in the South.
Anyone for some nachos? Welcome my friends to another posting of Travels in the South. Today we went a little Mexican. Okay maybe I should say mom/dad went a BIG time Mexican. They decided one night to go out and split some Fajita Nachos and maybe – and I stretch maybe – a Margarita might have been involved – snorts with piggy laughter. And I say share because look at that plate!
It had peppers, onions, chicken, steak, shrimp and cheese slathered all over it. It was messy and so delicious! And hey splitting it between mom/dad meant half of the calories, right? Don’t you love the way those two parents of mine have changed their way in thinking about food? You don’t have to give up the things you love, just split them in half with someone else you love ❤
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.
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.
