All Aboard The Gravy Train

During my last few trips to the North-West I have yet to the American staple of buscuits and gravy. For the uninitiated the term biscuit is not interchangeable either side of the Equator. Northern Americans use the term for something that is more scone like.  Our “buscuits” are their “cookies”. And the best way to serve this cultural phenomenon? If you answered “drown them in a gravy” you win/contract (hypertension).

Before you judge, this isn’t a daily occurence and I won’t go for another ride on the buscuit merry-go-round. But for the 10 minute window before my resting heart rate doubled, everything felt right in the world. Thanks to all at Pine State Biscuits. I opted for mushroom gravy over sausage gravy due to its superior health benefits.
Yes, and that is a piece of pecan pie. It had a crust akin to a meat pie but it was as good as it looks. I see why they call it soul food. 

Enjoy Australia Day, I need a long walk.

This blog started life as a series of emails with poor quality photography to family and friends whilst overseas to let them know I was still breathing.  It has since grown into it’s own little part of the internet.  A place where I ramble on about my love of travel and food.  Hopefully you find some enjoyment and inspiration out of it for future travel plans.  I have got a buzz from seeing it evolve into this flurry of pixels.
