In honor of the Mayan Calender and the end of the earth as we know it, my Roadfood
revelations led to another fantastic year...
Before I go any further, I want to dedicate this year's list to our late great Padre Rick Flynn
who passed away early in the year......we all still miss him dearly, and I know we will all be thinking of him in February at the next glee club event.
Like the last couple of years, I'm going to begin my list mid month with a teaser of "soup and pies" and then continue after Christmas and hopefully conclude by the new year....
As you know this is my list so I make my own rules. Like last year, The Best Standby's
list have to wait at least 3 years before they're eligible again and as you all know this is a "non-local list" this year I've expanded the term "non local" to anything more than 100 miles away.....(previously it was 50 miles)
This year wasn't a big "soup year" so my list is short...
So without further ado..... 6 stupendous bowls of soups/stews/ chili and gumbo (in no particular order) 1 Chicken Dumpling Soup Blue Willow Inn Social Circle GA
2 A Bowl of Texas Red- Texas Chili Parlor Austin TX
3. Gumbo- Casamento's New Orleans LA
4. Seafood Chowder Gilbert's Chowder House Portland ME 5. Brunswick Stew- Community BBQ Decatur GA 6. Mushroom Barley Soup Second Avenue Deli New York, NY
