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.
Dear friends – guess what?! My pet rock Bashful is off again to new adventures of the unknown. Can you believe that?
He was only back home for less than a week! Now, he’s off somewhere new – somewhere we only know – snorts with piggy laughter.
Where or where will that little rock land?
Welcome my friends to another edition of Travels in the South. I know we usually show restaurant food but today we have something special. You see daddy loves M&M’s with nuts and mom loves caramel. Well somehow M&M nuts got mixed up with caramel and made this new creation – M&Ms Caramel. What a combination, right?!
So how are these new nuggets of wonder? Per daddy, they taste very similar to a Rolo. There is a great combination of chocolate to caramel and the nuts add another dimension. So if you like chocolate, caramel and nuts – look for these in your market the next time you go. They are definitely worth a try! And hey, get the big pack so you can share ❤
There are some things in life that you can never get too much of – like back rubs and cheese. Really think about it. Don’t those two things make you smile and feel good? Me too! Well recently mom and dad took nana out to lunch. Mom saw this on the restaurant menu and they all just *had* to try this wonderment. What is it you ask?
“Wisconsin cheese bites. Hand-battered and lightly fried to order. Served with a side of homemade marinara sauce“
Of course it’s going to be friend. We are in the south where we fry everything. But fried cheese bites. I’m licking my piggy lips now. See the gooey cheese on the picture coming out of the lightly battered bite? The cheese was wonderful and hot and so stringy! I’m not sure who enjoyed these more – mom, dad or Nana!
So the next time you see fried cheese on an appetizer list, try it. You might just fall in love too!
Welcome back my friends to another edition of Travels in the South. Last week, I gave you some appetizers from a restaurant that mom/dad visited a couple of towns over from us. You can read about that here. Today I wanted to share the main course with him. Now after eating all of those wonderful appetizers, mom did the right thing. She went for a salad. Mom said their salads were awesome with all kinds of the goodies that she likes in them like cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, mixed greens and croutons. Doesn’t it look fantastic?
But dad, dad went straight up southern on all of us. He got what the restaurant has on their menu as Glynn Street Burger. Why is it called that? Well the restaurant is on Glynn Street of course – snorts with piggy laughter. Makes sense huh? But what is in a Glynn Street Burger is the question. Let me introduce you.
The Glynn Street Burger is an 8 ounce hamburger patty topped with a fried green tomato, pimento cheese and -gulps- bacon. If you need to click on the picture to make it bigger to get a better look at this magnificent burger, please do. You will want to see all of this goodness. Dad says it’s one of those burgers that is wet and delicious. You will need plenty of napkins… or as mom says a hose to hose you down before you get back in the car. This burger is messy but so worth the fight in getting it into your tummy. If you never had a burger with pimento cheese and a fried green tomato – don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. Dad went straight up southern with this meal. But as in the famous words of our favorite television detective, “One more thing.” See those tater tots in the plate. They are sweet potato tater tots. Mom doesn’t care that much for tater tots but on this date couldn’t stay out of dad’s plate. They were that delicious!
But wait a minute, mom has one more picture to share with you. These are the outside doors of the bathrooms – too cute huh??!!
