I don’t know about you, but I think about food all of the time. (Except when I’m eating.) So….. I was very happy to celebrate my recent poker victory at a wonderful new Hill Country restaurant called VERDE’S MEXICAN PARILLA. (Parilla means “grill.”) Unlike THE PRESLEY PLOT, there’s no cover, but they do have a great story to tell. Cody Kidwell is the amazingly talented chef, and if you ever want to sample the best bacon wrapped quail on earth, then drive over to Hamilton Pool Road and pull up a chair on their lovely outdoor patio. (And don’t forget to order the tequila cheesecake!)
Now for some Elvis Presley Food Trivia…..
What was the King’s favorite snack?
A. Priscilla Presley
B. Possum & grits
C. Peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwich
If you chose A or B we need to talk. The correct answer is C. (Everyone knows that Elvis was a health nut.)
And since we’re on the subject of Elvis Presley, I wish to extend a warm welcome to our newest Elvis Presley Fan Club groups….. Elvisworld@yahoogroups.com…..Kostas20052002@yahoogroups.com…..Elviest_ Group@yahoogroups.com…. and Elvis_101@yahoogroups.com
If you get a chance, please support these wonderful groups by leaving them a nice message. They all do a great job of keeping the memory of Elvis alive. Thanks again, folks!
By the way, I haven’t mentioned the Nobel Prize for Literature (and my apparent snub) because I have requested a re-count of the votes from a guy named Sven. (I will keep you “posted” on the outcome.) In the meantime, please join my Norwegian boycott by not eating pickled herring or grilled reindeer. (This should be fairly easy.)
Have a great week and be careful out there!
Love to all,
How much of a discount did Chef Cody give you for your shameless product endorsement haha…. I have heard that reindeer meat is actually pretty good. Too much comparison to eating Bambi, though – except in this case, it’s Rudolph! Love hugs & kisses from Nashville, Father of the Bride! “Suze”
