Just left the McDonald's to use the restroom and it was a long line in there waiting on more pancakes to be made...I wanted to tell the last lady in line so bad that I had some sweet apples in the car but knowing how 99% of Mississippi folks think, there's no way an apple can compete with a hot stack of pancakes drowning in maple syrup.

So I just went on my way shakin my head. Nothing I could do but observe and leave.

I bought me a Southern Traditional Cookbook a year ago, and just look at the fattening ingredients to so many of those dishes, lots of sour cream, lots cheeses, half & half and whipping cream, but I can't resist making some of those dishes/desserts, occasionally, as they're so delicious.

So, one week, I lose weight, as always, stir-frying chinese dishes in the wok, and then I treat myself, another week, to some sinfully delicious Southern dish, and damn the results!

Oooey! I'm just finishing up some double chocolate brownies, sprinkled with bourbon, then topped with vanilla frosting, and if that isn't enough, a chocolate frosting atop the vanilla frosting! Southern Sweet Cream is next on the list!

Take away the fast food chains, and go back to the traditional southern cooking, and it may only increase the obesity level!

You don't have to eat traditional Southern food to get obese, try some traditional nevada food.

"Nevada has the 32nd highest rate of adult obesity in the nation, at 25.1 percent and the 11th highest rate of overweight youths (ages 10-17) at 34.2 percent, according to a new report by Trust for America's Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF)."

That's not real maple syrup. It is very expensive compared to the corn-syrup based products Southerners buy. Try finding some real sugar cane syrup from Steen's in Louisiana.

God bless,

Yep, until the local Walmarts started carrying it, I had to smuggle in my Blackburn's to Chattanooga. Gotta love high-fructose corn syrup on hot pancakes!
