America is a funny place. All summer long, we will scarf down a mechanically separated pink colored slime in tube-form consisting of fat, cartilage, and “trimmings” affectionately known as the “hot dog”, but will shiver in horror when it comes to liver. It was ingrained into my head as a child, the nastiness of liver…
The perfect looking piece of Shoo Fly Pie. Windmill Family Restaurant, Morgantown, PA. Spring 2016.
The back of King’s Homestead in Lancaster (the Ronks location). Inside is a country and furniture store, but out back, they have a nice fish pond which extends a lot longer than this picture shows. You can feed fish and ducks, and have a seat on their deck and relax. Summer 2017.
