Some vivid highlights of summer revolve around glorious road trips and delicious summer foods. Below are some amazing summer foods—from ice cream to incredible BBQ and fluffy biscuits—experienced on McCool Travel road trips—from Massachusetts to Virginia to Tennessee and North Carolina.
Road Trip Travel: Summer Foods
This biscuit was practically a meal in itself, but, of course, I also bought a chocolate eclair or doughnut. If I remember correctly, lunch was light that day.
Loved this setting. You can see the view from the swing here. I bought a bottle of wine and had a glass with my own snacks. attn winery owners: more vineyards should have swings like this.
The three meat platter from Jack’s BBQ in Nashville. Yum! What I remember is that Jack’s had the best sauces I remember from any BBQ joint. A couple of other pictures of Jack’s are here.
Stewart’s Key Lime Soda is a great drink to try with various summer foods. I try to have one (but only one) of these each summer. I leisurely sipped this soda in the peaceful courtyard of the Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.
The food is wonderful but I liked this picture of the sauce containers.
Not the best ice cream I had this summer—but the best ice cream I had that day!
I learned that grape jelly is the acceptable topping for sausage biscuits. Who knew? I certainly did not. I love learning new things, especially about authentic food.
These may have been the best tacos I have had outside of California. That is high praise l because I love tacos! Get this—they were only 99 cents each. Honestly, I would plan another road trip just to visit this food truck again.
I had a few lobster dishes this summer but this is the only picture I could find.
My go to ice cream flavor from Cherry Hill is the chocolate peanut butter cookie dough. It is the BEST flavor I have ever had. I got a Small size. The other two are Kiddie sized. This place has huge servings.
On another trip to Cherry Hill, I tried the Black and Tan flavor. Chocolate peanut butter cookie dough is still my favorite but it is worth trying other flavors. You know, just to confirm.
Another winery visit, another “trying to be artistic” picture. How did I do?
This was the second eclair I have had from Donut Friar. Seeing this picture will trigger some stomach rumbling dreams. This would be in my top 5 eclairs in the USA—but note that I have not tried them ALL.
