From time to time, I will contribute something to our e-magazine, PorchScene that may be of interest to the followers of my blog. This week is one of those occasions. As you all know, I have a deep and abiding interest in good food. Not just eating it, but preparing it as well. I have reviewed restaurants and cafes that I thought worthy of promotion, and I have posted recipes that I have found interesting, but I have never compiled a list of my favorite foods or my favorite places to eat. So, this week I’m remedying both of these oversights.
In this post I’m going to address my favorite foods and the types or brands I find to be the best. In the past I may have written a review of some of them, and certainly I will write more about them in the future. Here is a compilation of my favorite things to eat.

For whole flounder, broiled or fried, gotta try Blowfly Inn in Gulfport.

I’ll try Blowfly next I’m on the coast. Thanks,
Tommy, will you share Clista Haley’s recipe for pound cake?
Anne, I’ll ask Clista and email it to you if she is willing to share.
what’s your LDL level big RED
LDL-167, no statins, blood pressure 95/72, no meds, I’m a carnivore, grrr., eat what’d left of your heart out!
Tried to stop in at The Rendezvous during the Memorial Day weekend but it was closed, apparently for the holiday. Shucks! Have to try again sometime.
The Rendezvous is a tourist trap today. Sloppy service, ordinary food and the only reason I ever go is to get their Lamb Riblets, which I love! Try the Cozy Corner or Corky’s for ribs.
Thanks! I’ll keep that info in mind. Sounds like missing this opportunity was maybe a good thang!
