It is a regional thing.

Rarely do you find a person here that has heard of a Frito Pie or even Okra.

I'm learning new things as well.

Never heard of a lug. Now I know what one is. (A wooden box for transporting fruit or vegetables.)

Hot Beef Commercial? Nope. Not an ad for hot beef. (Open faced hot beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy.)

Dinner? (Lunch, not supper.)

But one of the biggest surprises of these regional things is a food I wrinkled my nose at. I may have even said, "You've got to be kidding me."

Are you ready for this one?

Cheez Whiz on cinnamon bread.

I KNOW! Yick.

It is usually served as a finger food at get-togethers. And often with a slice of green olive on each piece.

But I like it. A lot.

David's Aunt had her 80th birthday party today. I didn't have any cake. I had three slices of cinnamon bread with Cheez Whiz. AND I brought four more pieces home.

Oh, my-lanta. Good stuff.


  1. You should introduce the folks to Dr. Pepper with peanuts poured right in.

  2. And that was after how many drinks, exactly?
