Summer Eats, Drinks and Food in General
by Yuuken Fukkov
I don't know if you would call this a "delicacy" or not but southerners seem obsessed with sweet tea, they drink it by the gallon. 1 lb. minimum of sugar per gallon seems to be the norm. Then wonder why their kids ping off the wall, then nap throughout the afternoon. It's called sugar crash people...
I don't believe that it would be possible to pick just one place in the world to find great food. I like to seek out the the "mom and pop" places and sample their signature dishes that keep people coming back. There are so many different delicious treasures to be found all over the United states and I am sure this is true all over the world. Whether it be the greatest piece of pie or other dessert, could be BBQ, soup, Hamburgers, steak, yes *gasp* even salad... The world is a treasure trove of great food just waiting for you to go and sample it. You haven't lived until you have sampled an authentic Philly cheese steak from one of the many great proprietors of Philadelphia, or a "Fackin hawt dawg" from Coney Island. A big Texas steak with all the trimmings. Wash it down with some Tennessee whiskey, Kentucky bourbon or some good ole homemade wine; Some fresh squeezed lemonade, a cold Mtn Dew or yes some blessed sweet frickin tea.
Do yourself a favor and explore your community and surrounding areas seek out the small family owned restaurants and sample their cuisine, you would be surprised at the amount of culinary gold that's sitting right under your nose just waiting for you to find it. Next time you want to roll through the drive thru and pick up your instant McGratification, say not this time Ronald, up yours Wendy, I'm going to sit down and have a great meal with my family.
