10 Great All-Americans

Yummies, that is. It’s a pretty fair list:

1) New England clam chowder
2) Pastrami (New York)
3) Shoofly pie (Pennsylvania)(…apple pan-dowdy, makes your eyes light up, tummy say ‘howdy’! and no, that’s not part of the article.)
4) Smithfield ham (Virginia)
5) Po-boys (Louisiana)
6) Fajitas (Texas)
7) Chicago hot dogs (Illinois)
8) Chile verde (New Mexico)
9) San Francisco sourdough (California)
10) Olympia oysters (Washington)

(I do have a problem with Chicago hot dogs. HUH? New YAWK ring a bell?? Nathan’s? Hebrew National? YANKEE frickin FRANKS???)
The obvious, GLARing, you’re a ‘Communist piece of shit for forgetting‘ omission (duh, Duh, DUH)???

Roast Gobbler, plastic or otherwise.
You don’t get that no place but here. God bless America!

    I gotta say, overall, the Chicago dogs are better ths. Next time you guys visit, You’ll find out why.

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    If I want a chicago dog, you bet I’m heading to North Kackalacky.

    I’m partial to broiled Pacific salmon myself, rather than Washington oysters. Although I recall geo-ducks as being especially tasty.

  4. I tell you what, there JeffS! Old ‘he who shall remain nameless’ (Bingley thinks he’s a pudgey, wussie Irish boy, so I won’t ruin his weekend by mentioning Bobby Flay, who, by the by doesn’t sing counter tenor like some among us have lamentably admitted to) went to a fresh-out-the-river salmon bar-b-que some town puts on as a fundraiser on his show night before last. Major Dad and I both lost our minds, it looked that good. The incredible color of the fish alone was enough to spur copious puddles of drool to form.

  5. Crusader says:

    Yeah, odd as it is, they are good here in NK…
    Though there have been days I would have killed for a roast beef on white bread from Place By The Tracks….

  6. Major Dad says:

    Anybody vote for Chili Three Ways? (Cincinnati).

  7. Shannon says:

    Mmmmm. Cincy chili.
    Maybe, some day, Nevada can get on the list for the 99-cent shrimp cocktail.

  8. The Real JeffS says:

    Oh, and let’s not forget fresh Alaska halibut steak, grilled to a perfection! MMMMMMMMMMM! I’d like to say I caught it myself, but I was suffering from motion sickness, and handed my permit to my buddy.

  9. The Real JeffS says:

    And, Mr. Bingley? I hope that you savored that salmon. I really do……….drool

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    I would not dream of denying you of salmon, JeffS.

  11. The Real JeffS says:

    Tsk tsk, Mr. Bingley. So UnAmerican of you. Still, you like Chicago hot dogs, so there’s hope for you yet.

  12. Dave J says:

    Can we have all ten of those in one meal, please? [wipes drool from chin]

  13. NO you may not. You’ll be looking at purchasing a whole new wardrobe for that swank new job of yours and need to cut a dashing figure.
