Must Eat Meals: Florida – Key Lime Pie

Tallahassee is in the extreme north of Florida, and our next destination was in the far south.  August 2 was cloudy and rainy in western Florida, which made it a good day to be confined to the car. Everyone raves about Fort Myers Beach.  As it was directly along our route, we planned to stop and… Continue reading Must Eat Meals: Florida – Key Lime Pie

Must Eat Meals: Georgia – Peach Cobbler

After a hiatus to actually blog about the trips we took this summer, I'm ready to finish 2017's LONG trip.  Sorry for the convoluted path, but I want to get caught up.  Hopefully once 2017 is done, I'll get to 2019 on time. 😉 I left off having explored the great city of Atlanta, Georgia.… Continue reading Must Eat Meals: Georgia – Peach Cobbler

Must-Eat Meals: St. Louis – St. Louis Style Ribs

After a long, excruciatingly hot day, food may not seem overly appetizing.  However, St. Louis has its own must-eat food in addition to the toasted ravioli that cover the state of Missouri.  With St. Louis style ribs as our mission, we headed to Adam’s Smokehouse in search of some. We arrived at Adam’s at 7:15p.m.  They… Continue reading Must-Eat Meals: St. Louis – St. Louis Style Ribs

Must-Eat Meals: Missouri – Toasted Ravioli

Conquering a fear of heights and claustrophobia can really work up an appetite.  We left downtown and headed to The Hill, the St. Louis equivalent of Little Italy.  This quaint little neighborhood reflects its Italian heritage everywhere, from the fire hydrants to the potted plants, and certainly in its restaurants. We circled the neighborhood looking… Continue reading Must-Eat Meals: Missouri – Toasted Ravioli

Must-Eat Meals: Illinois – Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza

On our second day in Chicago, we worked up huge appetites visiting museums and parks, appetites big enough for a slice of Chicago's number one food: deep dish pizza.  Chicago is known for many famous foods: Chicago style hot dogs, Italian beef, Garrett Popcorn.  The one considered must-eat in the Windy City is the deep… Continue reading Must-Eat Meals: Illinois – Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza

The Snack: Garrett Popcorn

Surviving Chicago Blues Fest crowds in order to view a giant metal legume definitely makes you munchy.  To satisfy our need for a little crunch, we headed over to a Chicago staple...Garrett Popcorn Shops. Located all over the city, Garrett Popcorn is well-known as the must-have snack in the Windy City.  We walked two blocks… Continue reading The Snack: Garrett Popcorn

Must-Eat Meals: Alabama – Fried Green Tomatoes (Attempt #2)

Once again I hopped on Yelp and attempted to find someplace that had Fried Green Tomatoes while we were in Alabama.  Unfortunately it appeared that Monday was a popular day for restaurants to be closed (just like Sunday).  Those that were open closed at 8:00pm, and it was already 7:00 by the time we left… Continue reading Must-Eat Meals: Alabama – Fried Green Tomatoes (Attempt #2)

Must-Eat Meals: Alabama – Fried Green Tomatoes (or at least we tried)

After leaving Nashville, we were headed to Huntsville, and had planned to eat at a little southern place near there.  The must-eat food for Alabama is fried green tomatoes, and after missing out on the Kentucky Hot Brown, I was excited to finally be able to check one off.  As I was driving, though, M… Continue reading Must-Eat Meals: Alabama – Fried Green Tomatoes (or at least we tried)

Must-Eat Meals: Kentucky – Hot Brown (or not)

The must-eat meal of Kentucky is the Kentucky Hot Brown.  Since we were spending the night in Elizabethtown,  I had done some research and picked out a place to get a good one.  So we were headed in search of this place when we discovered that there was a problem.  There was a classic car… Continue reading Must-Eat Meals: Kentucky – Hot Brown (or not)

The Must-Eat Meal: Kansas City BBQ

It was almost time to head out of Kansas, but before we did, we needed some lunch.  The must-eat meal of Kansas was, of course, BBQ. Barbecue is such a regional thing that it shows up on the must-eat list several times: Kansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and possibly Missouri if you go that route… Continue reading The Must-Eat Meal: Kansas City BBQ
