The Road Food

It is always fun when I’m around new people who don’t know I have a blog or didn’t know I took pictures of food. I always get strange looks. Sometimes I’m not sure what to think of those looks… but it is what it is.

Friday night while we were waiting on the bus to arrive, we decided to eat at the Denny’s at Flying J where we met the bus to load up and head for Houston. Deb knows I take pictures of food, so when I snuck this one in, she just laughed. I asked her if she felt special. She had Chicken Fried Steak and eggs.

I couldn’t decide what I wanted so finally thought, Biscuits and Gravy which came with 2 eggs any way and hashbrowns. It was just meh. Not bad, just not great, just meh.

Hubby went with the Crazy Spicy Skillet. Crumbled chorizo sausage, jalapeños, sautéed mushrooms, and fire-roasted bell peppers and onions blended together with seasoned red-skinned potatoes on a sizzlin’ hot skillet. Topped with grilled chicken breast, shredded cheddar cheese, and a spicy five pepper sauce and pepper jack queso.

Dan and Carlene met us at Denny’s (they ate elsewhere for Jason’s birthday).  Dan took the feathers off his hat he was wearing and placed them on my head which called for a photo montage. Deb stole the straw out of my mouth I was chewing on and then I tried to smile for a picture. The camera WOULD NOT TAKE. Finally I stuck my tongue out and it took. Of course.

Saturday morning we had to switch drivers around Ennis. So we met the day driver at the IHOP in Ennis. We called 30 minutes out to notify them we had a large bus coming. At that point they only had one server and one cook but even at that… food came out quickly. They did awesome!

I’m totally a morning person….

I had bacon, scrambled eggs, and 3 pancakes. It was all good but I wasn’t very hungry at 6amish in the morning.

Hubby had 3 eggs over easy, hashbrowns, sausage links, and pancakes.

Dan went for the 55+ breakfast sampler. eggs (scrambled), ham, bacon, sausage links, hashbrowns.

One of the Red Coaters had a birthday on Saturday so we had to sing Happy Birthday to her. She also wished for a win because, I mean, why not, right?

The tailgating food made the Chiefs post because really…..

On our way home we were trying to find somewhere to stop and eat that would get us in and out quickly. They finally chose Golden Corral. We called ahead to let them know we were coming. They were okay with that and put out more food. They said that they were pretty bare and had decided to not put anymore food out until we called. The food was okay.

And that was our trip in meals!
