Thanks a million CheeseWit. Really enjoyed the read. Congratulations! Now I must go and find something to stop this growling stomach you caused.

Bushie,
I'm ready. We could take the long way up to Memphis (US -61) and then cut across on 1-40. If we eat five meals a day, which seems reasonable to me (and keep it limited only to places previously listed on this site) I calculate we will be there by Christmas.
I'll let my wife know I'll be gone for a while and go ahead and get my appointment at Rancho La Puerta to get detoxed and defatted." />

Good idea, MM. But if we're only going to eat 5 meals a day, then let's be sure and pick up some snacks.

Since we'll be going up I-40, let's stop and crash at Sundancer's place, just until he runs out of brisket, pork butt, and Canadian whiskey.

CheeseWit, why don't you plan on coming back with us when we return in the Spring? I'm sure Jane will be ready to get you out of the house by then, anyway!

Bushie and Mayhaw Man: Sounds like a plan!! I'm glad you'll arrive up here with stretched stomachs as we would be averaging 3 cheesesteaks a day. We'll also need room for soft pretzels and Tastykakes.

I feel terrible.............I feel like a Roadfood traitor!! After reading all posts about Tastykakes, I went out and looked for some and found them in all the local supermarkets.........I bought 3 different kinds and brought them home. I got a large glass of milk and sat down and I am so sorry to report that I was not the least bit impressed! I would rather bake up a batch of "whatever" and call it really good!!

What did you get? In my experience, only the chocolate cupcake is really worth writing home about, and even that, only when it's fresh.

I bought some butterscotch, some with peanut butter and some kind of jelly thing............none to my taste! But my 3 and 5 year grandchildren gobbled them right up and asked for more. At that point, I baked a double batch of my banana cupcakes and that has kept them quiet!

I wish I could say the right words about "my" butterscotch krimpets, but since I can't eat them anymore, I probably shouldn't feel insulted...they were just such a special, comforting part of my entire childhood, adolescence and adulthood. I always knew krimpets were there. Jelly wouldn't do it, chocolate cupcakes were for my brother. Peanut butter kandy kakes, or tandy takes (both names were used) were not for me, and I still don't like peanut butter and chocolate together. But butterscotch krimpets...*sigh*. The best. How I loved the days when I could sit with butterscotch krimpets watching Sally Starr...

Anyway, I'm done about that. CheeseWit - your wedding reception food sounds very classy, and I'm guessing (now I might be wrong) that since no (red) meat was mentioned in it, that you might have used a kosher caterer? Just a guess!

Anyway, your wonderful food tour/honeymoon makes me want to plan mine now, and now I realize...I don't want to fly off and go to some compound someplace. I want a roadfood honeymoon!! Down South and maybe to Chicago, where "Mister" Bill was born & raised! You all will gasp - we want to bring my daughter with! Before you all laugh hysterically, she has actually been part of our honeymoon plans for awhile now.

Now we gotta set the date!

Yes, shaynas mom, we used a kosher caterer. It was a dairy menu due to our choice of a buttercream frosted wedding cake. The food was actually very good and I don't think anyone missed pigs in blankets or roast beef.

I found this site while looking for information about Julia Child. I just had to register to add my two cents about Tastykakes. I grew up in Philadelphia where Tastykake reigned supreme. Did I ever love them!

My all time favorite is the Lemon Pie with the chocolate cupcake and butterscotch krimpet as runners up. I must admit though, that I think they were bigger and better when I was a child. It could be because my tastes have changed, but I really think the recipes have been modified to their detriment. Anyway, Tastykakes are probably one of those regional foods that bring back great memories for those of us who loved them long ago, and now cause those who did not have that long ago experience, to wonder why.

I enjoyed reading about the Honeymoon Roadtrip and the Cooking Show comments. I too am over Emeril. I love Jacques Pepin, Julia Child, Barefoot Contessa, the Great Chefs series among others and Martha Stewart (her alleged real life personality and current troubles notwithstanding).

Have I missed a discussion about her program? I agree with the writer who said the show is somehow comforting. I think the show offers lots of good information and ideas. It would be sad to see it go because of unrelated problems. What are your thoughts?

Thanks for the site. I look forward to lots of fun and information.

Thanks NancyPeter!! I've read your comments about places in South Jersey with interest. As you may know, I live in the area and am originally from Phila. My mother and my sister live in Cherry Hill.

So, CheeseWit, if your mom & sister live in Cherry Hill, have you been to Chick's for their "famous" cheesesteaks lately Can't believe I've lived in Voorhees for ten years & just got there recently...

Hey y'all, I first want to apologize for the delay in posting this picture, but better late than never. I just felt I HAD to put it up here, because I think it's such a great shot.

Anyway, here are two lovely people, on their honeymoon, at the Ogunguit Lobster Pound in Ogunquit, ME.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Mr. and Mrs. CheeseWit (JaneDough):

Great Pic Jane dough and Cheesewit. It certainly appears that you were having a great time. The only comment is that you should have at least one more lobster.

Paul, we were having a great time. We paced ourselves lobster-wise. Nice 1 1/2-1 3/4 single lobsters that night...more the following day and night.

CheeseWit:
Great thread regarding an even greater adventure. I whole heartedly agree with your praise of the Maine Diner's WARM lobster roll. No leftover, mayonaise-based lobster rolls for me. MD's warm lobster roll in a split frankfurter roll and accompanied by warm, drawn butter is unmatched. In fact, I believe my quote many years ago of it being "the best damn lobster roll on the planet" is still on the menu. (God, I'm so friggin' modest.) Congrats on the nupitals!


Mayhaw Man:
Speaking of blueberry ales, there is a microbrewery in Rockland, Maine making this very same beverage. Their name escapes me, however, but how many microbreweries can there be in Rockland?


All:
Speaking of Rockland and although I don't believe it has yet been reviewed by the Stearns, anyone in that neck of the woods should check-out The Brown Bag in downtown Rockland next time they're in Down East looking for a great breakfast.

A'yuh!

Thanks, CW. I found that picture again the other day, and I just couldn't resist. Now, the next question is, how long before we have some other little "Cheesies" running around the house?

Boy, you really know how to start trouble don't you? I have two teenagers and that's enough for me.
Jane and I do have a little one around the house. His name is Winnie and he's a Bichon Poodle mix. He's 10 but is in great shape. I'll send you a pic soon.

BTW Bushie, the teenagers may be CW's little "cheesies," but Winnie was my contribution to the mix, and trust me, he's got his own personality issues. But he's a true Roadie runt; loves to drive in the car, and has pretty particular tastes... well, as long as what you feed him contains some kind of meat, cheese, chocolate, chicken, cheese, fish... did I mention cheese? (Yes, I KNOW chocolate is bad for dogs, but a little every now and then hasn't hurt him. What's a pastry chef w/ a whining dog to do? I couldn't deny my baby a Toll House chip or two!)

Cheese and Jane,

What a fantastic picture. Couldn't help wondering though (Pwingsx is a hopeless romantic)....were you two holding hands under the table? Kind of looked like it.

Here's hoping.....*sigh*...........

Yes, we were holding hands under the table-you caught us! It was interesting that our seating arrangement had us next to each other as opposed to across from each other.

From one hopeless romantic to another... yes, Pwingsx, we WERE holding hands under the table. (Good thing Bushie didn't post the hot tub photo -- YIKES!)
