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.

Do you remember last week when I had a BOLO (be on the look out) and an APB (all points bulletin) out for Twinkies Chocodiles? You can read about it here if you don’t remember. I told you that my mom if not anything is very pig-headed (snorts) when it comes to things that she wants. Now you know where I get my stubbornness from – I don’t fall too far from the tree. This weekend, she was determined to find these little treasures somewhere within a fifty mile radius of the Hotel Thompson.
Insert Mission Impossible music now. Nana called my mom on Friday at her worky place. Mommy told her of these delectable little treasures and gave Nana a mission of looking for them at store she was going to that day. Nana went to the store and even got the store manager involved to no avail. Bummer.
Then mom/dad went grocery shopping at another chain store Saturday morning. Again, nothing. Bummer. Now, it was getting to mommy. She is not a quitter – especially with chocolate on the table. Mom called Nana and they were going to meet up for lunch on Sunday to come up with another plan.
Sunday, mom/dad took Nana out to lunch. Lunch was great but the thing still dancing in mom and Nana’s heads were these chocolate Twinkies – oh yummy! So after dinner, a trip was planned to Wally World. It was like humans gone wild when they entered the doors of old Wally World. Fist bumps commenced and then it was ready, set and GO off they went in their separate ways to find the elusive Chocodile who some called Bigfoot – often talked about but never seen.
That’s when mom saw it out of the corner of her eye. A blue stand filled with what you might ask – Chocodiles – THUD. I think mom actually dropped to her knees in front of the display and thanked the heavens above. She then called daddy who then called Nana and they all met in front of the alter of chocolate covered Twinkies. You would have thought they had never seen chocolate before.
I can’t tell you how many boxes mom and Nana bought. I *can* tell you that they freeze well – snorts. And I can tell you that mom had one last night. As she was moaning in satisfaction, I picked up a few choice words from her like the following, “Spongy cake goodness with a white cream in the middle surrounded by a chocolate heaven”. Okay, after that I kind of left the room quietly so mom could have a moment. I’m guessing that they are mom approved.

Happy Birthday Oreo! Momma says you’ve been out there now for 100 years. WOW – 100 years?! Momma was trying to tell me how old that was. She said it was like when Moby Dick was a minnow. That’s got to be old.
I’ve seen the Oreo commercials on my television. My favorite is the one with the dad on the business trip eating via Skype an Oreo with his son. (What? You find it more difficult to accept that I watch television in my own room or that I know what Skype is? Heck, I’ve done FaceTime on moms iPhone with my family.)
Well, I would love to try an Oreo but I can’t because of the chocolate. So listen up Oreo – you’re mission if you choose to accept is to make a pet friendly Oreo. I hear bells going off in marketing. That would be awesome!
Yawn. I have to go back to bed now to get my morning nap in. Y’all have a great day. Oink oink out.
