"OMG! Look at the size of this thing!" Well, I said that quite a few times during trips to the US! (No sniggering in the back!)
Most delicious though…

Welcome to the south where we’ll fry anything. Would you like a side of lard with that?
I went to high school in upstate NY, and Texas red hots was the thing. By the time I went back for my 20th h.s. Reunion I’d forgotten all about them, but that’s what was served at the picnic/family day.I miss the Texas Red Hots. I grew up in Western NY, and ate at Ted's many, many times. They don't sell them where I live now. It's also near-impossible to find good chicken wings, so I make 'em at home!
I remember a past presidential campaign where somebody, I think it was Dubya, was at a fair in the great American heartland, where they partook of a deep fried stick of butter on a stick, like a popsicle.So far I've managed to dodge a delicacy I see offered at a diner a couple counties over when I've been traveling through there on the way farther up state:
deep fried macaroni and cheese?!?!At first I thought it was a joke. Apparently it's not, you can even find images of it on the net. So I guess it's a thing one might file under heading of comfort food, at least until their first cardiovascular incident. Let me not judge though. It's not like I don't go for a bowl of pasta, olive oil and romano cheese at midnight now and then.
We have not forgone delivery. We’d have starved to death weeks ago otherwise. Just last night we got delivery from Burger King. I know I can make Beyond burgers myself, but it’s not the same as getting the Impossible Whopper and just throwing away the bag.Speaking of deep fried foods, we still haven't had any fast food since January and my wife is trying to talk me into getting takeout. We've lived like hermits this entire time and I really miss not having to cook and do dishes every day.
I have done that. I'm sure there are tons of people younger than me who'd be amused at my belatedly discovering that you can order BK online, use Apple Pay, drive up there, announce your pickup order, pull up to the window, wait about 30 seconds, and drive off.We have not forgone delivery.
