  1. You were on the Riverwalk! we used to live in San Antonio.......brings back memories! Sounds like you're having a blast. Live it up!

  2. I almost jumped through the monitor to get to that caramel cake! Oh dear!

  3. Hi Christy,

    I've also been on the River Walk in San Antonio. Also went on a boat to check the outdoor theatre. Love your wanderlust post and especially your caramel cake. Where can I find the recipe? Please, please, please!!!

    Anne-Marie :D

  4. I would love a slice of the pork loin and cake.

  5. Yum! Traveling the country plate to plate! Great post!

  6. That looks wonderful! My family and I are all about exploring, and cuisine is always top on our list. My boys always say we should be overweight because we love food network and are big diner explorers. Have a great time!~

  7. Great post and photos! Everything looks delicious!

  8. what a fun trip for sure.. I love Texas..

  9. I've been awake all night so I could devour all you've shown us. I am a Southern girl though I've lived and traveled all over. I went to nursing school in New Orleans and lived there for several years after...San Francisco has been my home for 33 years now. I think both those cities have the best eating in the US.

    In my hometown of Columbus, GA, there used to be a bakery that made the most fabulous caramel cake with a frosting that looked like that! I've not seen another in years.

    Safe travel.

    At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon!
    ( Poems about the things that have been important to me in my journey through life, some humorous, some sad, some that may have meaning to you as well )

  10. How fun! I love that you are eating your way around the country.

  11. Oh to be able to travel around the states like that. I will have to go with friends when I retire because my hubs is a homebody. I can get him to take a long weekend away once a year and that is it. Its pretty sad because he gets almost 4 weeks vacation. He uses it to work around the house, help our grown daughters with work around the house and a little golf now and then.

  12. i'm not one for road trips but that food looks divine :D

  13. What a great trip! I'm jealous!

  14. OK, I'm gonna be honest here.

    I could barely read your words for drooling over the picture of that caramel cake.

    What a wonderful stop on our journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "W".

    Not only did you make me starving but you brought back many happy memories of trips to the same places.

    Alas, though, I have never had caramel cake!

    Thanks for helping make these meme so wickedly awesome!


  15. wanderlust - love that word but I'm doubt it fits me

    those food looks quite tempting!

  16. What a wonderful trip. There are gastronomical delights to be found everywhere, but I think the South has the best food per square inch of anyplace! Great photos, I'm drooling over that caramel cake. I feel Mississippi calling me home :) Kathy

  17. What a great post. I love the looks at the local cuisine. Looks very yummy. Have fun. Good W post.

  18. awesome trip to go...

  19. I'll have a little of everything, please!
    I love your description of your wanderlust - what a wonderful way to indulge that habit!

  20. That sounds like so much fun. I love road trips with my hubby! He, however, doesn't have wanderlust is rare. I love to visit historical things and quaint stores and I love local cuisine. Great post. Have fun!

  21. The best part of travelling is the food! That cake is scrumptious looking!

  22. Oh my gosh. That carmel cake is to die for.


  23. Unfortunately, I would need more than a car to get to any of those places; which is a shame because that food looks delicious!

  24. it looks like so much fun.......what a great way to see the country and eat great food too! that caramel cake.....oh my gosh!!!!
