Diviner and a movie at the same time.

I’ve seen the largest menu ever.

I located Cafe Gouda during a search prior to a recent trip to The Smokey Mountains. The online menu listed several items that I wanted to try.

Upon walking in and to the order counter we were presented with a huge chalk board full of items.

The Café Gouda menu offers both traditional and unique dishes, serving delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Still craving a steak

20140327-164040.jpg

After I decided not to get a steak during my visit to a steakhouse last week, the craving for a grilled dinner reappeared. A trip to Texas Roadhouse seemed appropriate on this Saturday night. We managed to arrive just in time to avoid the 45 minute waits. Fifteen minutes after checking in we were seated and browsing a menu. I determined not to let the descriptions of the non-steak items to distract me again. When my meal arrived it was one of the best looking steaks that I had ever seen. This was meant to be and I enjoyed every bite.

Chicken at a steakhouse.

.20140327-163307.jpg

Have you ever entered a steakhouse craving a nice juicy grilled steak and ended up with a plate of chicken and rice? This is what I did during a recent visit to Long Horn Steakhouse in Rock Hill, SC. This was after a day of riding a couple of hundred miles and it was well past lunch time. After reviewing the menu the Spinach Feta Chicken jumped out to me and I had to try it. I was not disappointed

Swan Lunch

We took a lunch break from meetings and were led to an area with a great selection of food and dessert.   Tables were setup outside for us to enjoy the warm Florida weather.     The prime rib and pasta salads knocked out my hunger, but the highlight for me was dessert!    The key lime mini pies were the best.  I considered sneaking a few out to snack on during the remainder of the days meetings.

The Flying Biscuit

Raleigh restaurant The Flying Biscuit has a unique menu with many selections even a picky eater like myself would enjoy.

It too a while for me to decide what I wanted to order.   Breakfast for lunch: Red velvet pancakes, grits bowl with egg and sausage and biscuit with cranberry apple. Mmmm good.

How Many Biscuits should a biscuit maker bake?

The night before opening day, the biscuiteers all gathered around the biscuit making table to plan their first batch of biscuits. How many biscuits should we make tomorrow morning?

The baker figured she had ten friends who would stop by. Other biscuiteers thought they could round up fifteen guests each. The owners thought they could round up a dozen or so and they wanted to make a few extra – so 90 should be plenty…they didn’t want to have too many leftover.

The next morning at 7am, The Flying Biscuit served its inaugural breakfast. Customers got their first taste of those now-famous “flying” biscuits. The first batch of biscuits sold out at 11am, and The Flying Biscuit had to close the doors for the day, wondering if 120 biscuits would be enough for day 2.

As the story goes they were wrong again. On an average week now, the biscuit makers bake close to 5,000 biscuits per location.”

Cowfish. The name drew me in.

I’d heard of Cowfish and after numerous suggestions, I decided to give it a try.

Fortunately I was in a burger mood and chose the The Texas Longhorn
Beef burger topped with pepperjack cheese, then piled high with crispy onion strings and jalapeño bacon. Drizzled with tangy BBQ sauce, and served on brioche with lettuce and dropped the tomato.

This was my first taste of jalapeño bacon and I loved it!

The burger was amazing and the addition of sriracha chili sauce made it perfect.

“And so was the ‘tail’ of the cow and the fish
From two separate places they had but one wish
To bring to the world in a way, so delish
An unusual place to enjoy a great dish”
