What America Runs On....

Kiev 60 Arsat 80mm f2.8 Fujifilm NPH 400 Pro Arista C-41 - Sugar, Meat and Carb, the America Travel Diet for as long as there have been roads and diners beside them. It is a shame when I travel these days, there seem to be fewer and fewer of these roadside slices of Americana. Who could argue with a nice thick slice of Country Ham and an ice cold Pepsi.

Food with local flair has slowly given way to mass produced chain restaurant fair or bag and dash fast food served through a window. No BBQ "Jumbo" Hoagie Burgers, Hot Dogs or Pork Spare Ribs insight. Somehow I just do not trust and international fast food chain when they tell me their biscuits are "Home Made." They are not Grandma's biscuits, the recipe passed down through generations, and lovely made by someone cooking because they want to, not for a paycheck. I still occasional like to find a place with the steak and eggs are fried in bacon grease and with a bottomless cup of strong basic, no name coffee.
