Last November, mom/dad traveled to Chicago, Illinois. Or should I say, mom planned a trip and told dad absolutely nothing about it until the car came and picked them up at the Hotel Thompson the morning of departure. Mom had already packed everything for their adventure. Why Chicago? Well first up, my Aunt Tina lives there with my cousin Sherlock Bones. Second up, daddy has *always* wanted to go to Ditka’s Chicago. Are you asking yourself what is that? Well Mike Ditka is a former football player, was an awesome coach and a television commentator. He coached the Chicago Bears back in the day which was one of dad’s favorite teams.
In the next couple of weeks, we will be highlighting some of the food that everyone enjoyed during their trip to Ditka’s Chicago.
Have you enjoyed these past couple of weeks my friends sharing in mom/dad’s adventure at Ditka’s Chicago?
Today we leave with the best picture of them all – dessert.
On the dessert menu, it was so hard to decide on something to share.
And we had to share – we had so much food! We settled on peanut butter pie – licks lips. It had whipped cream, peanut butter mousse, chocolate and caramel sauces.
By splitting this wonderful masterpiece, mom/dad said they all had split the calories too. And they said it was wonderfully sinful!
And trust me, everyone had so much food! Look at all of the leftover boxes that they went home with to eat later ❤

The question is why is mom/dad posting this delectable picture of goodness at the beginning of the new year? Why mom/dad? Please explain. Well, they said they had this dessert last year. Okay, sure mom/dad. Sure. It does look yummy though, right?
Mom/dad found it at a restaurant that they don’t frequent very often – but they might now because of this dessert. This delicious dessert is called a Goo Goo Cluster. It has creamy layers of chocolate fudge, peanut butter mousse and nougat cream topped with caramel, chocolate sauce, fresh whipped cream and Nashville’s original candy ~ chopped Goo Goo Cluster ®. (That’s what it says on the restaurants website).
Nods head. Mom/dad says it tastes as good as it sounds… not that she will be tasting it anytime soon this year – snorts with piggy laughter.

Friends, this is a great one today. I know – I know. I say that every week on my Travels in the South. But listen – every week I think there is absolutely no way that mom/dad can top the week’s prior Travels in the South. And every week, this little oinker is wrong. Right after mom’s accident (4 weeks ago today), she was feeling really icky and low. So dad treated her to this masterpiece. What is it you ask?
Daddy was speaking with the owner of a local restaurant that we go to a lot and was telling him that mom needed something to pick her up. The manager sent over this creation on the house. This is called Goo Goo Crunch pie. It has layers of chocolate fudge, peanut butter mousse and a nougat cream topped with caramel, chocolate sauce, fresh whipped cream and oh yeah – chopped up Goo Goo Clusters. Can you say insanely wicked good?! Daddy said that he could tell it was good. Not by the smile on mom’s face. Nope. Daddy said he could tell by the groans coming from mom. Oh my piggy heavens. Watch out Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. Daddy said mom had you beat on this day – snorts with piggy laughter!
