Well you know us, we make fun of everything and its hard not to resist poking fun at the obvious. But of course the sobering reality is that many of us struggle with our weight and having a higher awareness and interest in the culinary arts can make ‘watching your weight’ a lot more challenging.

63% of you prefer Bobby Flay?
If you’ve read KW for any length of time you know we’re very cynical about . . . well most things really. So generally speaking when companies conduct their own consumer surveys (95% polled love Kitchen Warfare, 3% can’t read, 4% can’t count) we tend to take them with a grain of salt. But that doesn’t mean we don’t like to read and ponder.
So up for roasting today is the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association’s (HPBA) national consumer poll on backyard barbecuing. After all …

Yep its time once again to pick the best Chinese restaurant in America. Actually since this is the 5th year and the contest starts in February and ends with an announcement the following January there doesn’t seem to be much time that we’re NOT picking the Top 100 Chinese Restaurants. But no matter everyone loves a contest, especially one that serves everyone’s self-interests. Restaurant owners get to remind us of who and where they are, we get to see what other people think of them and maybe just maybe …

This was mostly a really boring driving day, once again on the dreaded I-75. We got a few chores done before leaving town for our 13 hour drive home and I doubt I would have even mentioned today if the nicest thing hadn’t happened.
We ran out of gas (us, not the car) in Georgia between Atlanta and Marietta, at exit 261 (Delk Rd) to be exact. We found a motel and by the time we got settled it was just after 10pm which without a lot of hunting around …

Today we’re back in Old Town and its our last full day before heading back home. Mostly we ran errands and got the property mowed but we left time to try two local eateries that had been on our list since we got into town.
The first was the Homestead Restaurant, a locally owned spot in Fanning Springs that wasn’t here the last time I was in town. We drove past this place a dozen times and it was always packed with locals. We already had our dinner planned so …

On the way out of town we stopped at La Segunda yet again for a stock of bread to take back home and a hot loaf to enjoy on the way out of town.
This time our route took us up the west cost …
