Lately I’ve been getting Honeycrisps. I like a sweet apple with a hard crunch. They’re pretty consistently good.

Cameos and Braeburns can be good too. The Braeburns are a bit tart. Good for baking in pies or apple crisps.

So I have had no luck here in Arkansas finding Arkansas black apples. Most places have never heard of them. I called whole foods in Littlerock and they didn't have them either. Wal mart said no as did the other local markets. I stopped at a roadside market on the way to my hike today and they hadn't heard of them.

I bought a fresh peach for desert, some jalepenos, a BIG tomato and some raw honey from them though. I also saw a fresh eggs sign at a house on the back road to the hike and bought a dozen fresh eggs. So at least I have something to be happy about :)

My buddy found a produce vendor in Littlerock who can get them and will ship to my house. He said they were out of season for a couple months yet.



Chick-fil-a has the best biscuits in the biz. I had a rare chance to stop in and it's as good as I remember. Screwed up my meal plan for the day but eff it!

Sometimes it's good to switch up your meals. ;) Last night I had fish (cod) and American fries with a small salad, while my wife had a Burrito and corn chips. Our daughter had a chicken Monterrey sandwich with fries, while our son had fish and french fries. It was our anniversary.

I've never had one. Even better than popeyes and church chicken?

So far as apples pink lady is my favorite, fuji 2nd, and honeycrisp 3rd. I've never had better than pink lady. Never tried the black apple.

Anyone ever grill up hot n spicy spam slices? Mercy that's good eating with around 3/8" deep cuts! 1/4" deep is too chewy and 1/2" deep is too mushy in the middle. I like it better than their jalapeno version. :licklips:

I never got a chance to try that dragon fruit I bought the other day. I did see our local store had a couple apple varieties I haven't se4n around here. I bought a couple and will have one for breakfast tomorrow and give my thoughts.

Little girl and I made chocolate chip brownie bars and lemon bars to go with the cheddar brats and pork chops I grilled tonight. Fat and happy :)

94 was it as good as you hoped? I've never had them.

Grilled up a big plate sized T bone. Was good and tender but I've tasted better. I spent only $5 on it so was worth the risk! Finished with a salted sliced tomato and red grapes.

Makes me think back to my childhood in that to this very day the best sweet cornbread I've ever eaten was served by the cafeteria at Thunderbird Hills Elementary school in San Antonio when I was a kid. Nothing has come close since. :licklips:

Enjoying sliced salted tomatoes lately along with mandarins, bananas, red grapes and fuji apples. The cantaloupe wasn't quite ripe enough though. Also been eating a lot of little roasted chickens too. Good stuff.

I know what you mean. A friend of my dad's wife served up some okra for dinner, and that stuff was yummy. Of course, she was from Texas, but it was my first time trying it. Everything since just wasn't the same.:licklips:

Supper tonight. Meatloaf, fresh steamed green beans tossed with a dollop of bacon grease, and lightly mashed taters with butter, salt, and pepper. Simple, but absolutely delicious! And for dessert, I made some more of those blueberry muffins I posted recently. :licklips:

So this is my last week around this part of Arkansas for who knows how long and I decided to eat out a few nights.

Last night I went to lake Quachita and decided to find something down home. I drove the back way around the lake deep into no cell signal territory to a cool down home store/grill that has been serving food and having live music on Saturday nights since the 50's. Too bad I wasn't there on Jam night. Good hand formed patty greasy cheeseburger and interesting locals here---

Tonight I went to "the best Italian in Arkansas"

Prime rib, homemade potato soup, and fresh broccoli after a fresh salad with raspberry vinaigrette and bread. Very flavorful. Heavy on the salt for the crust on the prime rib which is just how I like it. Really excellent and a deal at $31 all in with a substitution charge for the soup instead of some form of potato. I have seen places of this caliber charge $40 or more just for Prime rib.

They had a free concert down the block. Just a nice Saturday night.




I topped it off with a caramel cannonball blizzard from DQ. Definitely went backwards on my weight loss today but that's ok. I'll work it off tomorrow.

You're real close to Russ there, maybe twenty miles away. Maybe you should pull into the resort and pull a Caddyshack on him. :lol:

It's more than 20 miles but I have thought of it. It's a bit more trouble with the Monaco. It would have been perfect if things had worked out for a meet with me being close for the last couple months.

I have been hoping Russ would post up some more of his awesome creations, been missing the drool worthy food porn :)

That's a nice slab of meat they gave you.
