    Yeah they’re pickle chips that’s fried and, depending on where you get them, coated with salt. Yummy!

    Hahaha the first time i hd burgoo i was like why are they callin brunswick stew this crazy name. In NC it is brunswick stew. I am not a bread puddin fan because most jas raisins in it. Raisins alone not cooked are just dandy but they should never be cooked in anything. Ick! I do occasionally make it but omit the raisins. I will also make hubby oatmeal raisin cookies but leave a third of the batter plain for me cookies. And WHAT is up with raisins for sweetener in applasauce!?!?!

    Wow! Lots of yummy stuff!
    California has lots of good food but most of it is *borrowed*. My favorite foods are things I found in Hawaii. Kailua pig, malasadas, Zippie's chili and rice, chicken long rice, mahi mahi...
    Most of it came from somewhere else and has been adapted.
    Mexican food was a whole 'nother thing there. Very bland even for me and I don't do spicy. When we came to the Mainland for Christmas; Taco Bell was a treat.
    When I visit my sister in Arkansas it's extra hushpuppies and sweet tea with that catfish!

    I'm in South Louisiana. I cannot leave for long because I go through shrimp withdrawals.
    All the food is wonderful. I have to carry seasoning, hot sauce and coffee with me when I travel....after getting used to the level of flavor here, the rest of the states' food is bland.
    I even use remoulade as salad dressing. But I don't like sweet tea and it can be difficult to get unsweet tea. We have Sonics but no one gets the food, just the slushies and frozen treats. KFC is not that big here, Popeye's is more popular. And for the adults, there are drive-through frozen daiquiri places.

    Here we do the Indian pinapple and cayan pepper and spice. Also we have the traditional rice meat potatoes and vegetables. But my faverite is banana salad. Banana, condense milk, cream, chilli powder and mayonnaise. I add some green pepper and onion. Adds some bitter to the sweet and tangy.

    Hey, does anybody here eat hot chicken sandwiches? You take a piece of white bred, put some cooked chicken (usually done in the crock pot) on it, then put gravy, another slice of bread, and cover the whole thing in gravy and then canned corn. You eat it with a fork because it's so messy. It's delicious!

    Banana salad sounds like something I'd like to eat. We are pretty big at trying out new foods.

    Definitely eat hot chicken sandwiches but without the corn and sometimes with butter on the bread. lol. And we have it with turkey too, a favorite with the leftover thanksgiving turkey.

    With the cold weather around here I'm craving soup. Want to make some Pho. You have to boil it for 2 days+ and the house will smell wonderful the whole time. And no matter what I could always eat spiced pulled meat with coleslaw sandwich. I can't think if that has a name right now.
