Father's Day Giveaway: Win a KettlePizza Pro 22 Kit

I grew up in the early 70's in the Midwest. My father's pizza mistake, as is some of the other post here, was that he was set in is Midwest ways and Pizza as well as other "Foreign" foods would not do. As a young 10 year old foodie back then I put in my request for an "International Night" one night a week from my Mom and spaghetti & Old El Paso tacos didn't count. I let the Chung King slide because there was no way Mom could find the Chinese ingredients in Northern Indiana. It was a tall order for a young Mom in the seventies.
On "I Night" Mom would make my "Foreign meal" and still have to pan fry my Dad a steak or pork chop & pour off the rendered fat in a coffee cup. She served the cup-o'fat on the side so that Dad could dip his white bread in it as he enjoyed his dinner. The funny thing is, after all these years, I think I saw version Dad's "meal" on the Girl & the Goat's menu a couple of weeks ago in Chicago. Maybe it was my Dad that was the one that was way ahead of the foodie curve back then? Go figure. I miss him. Happy Father's Day!

A while back I made what I called the I-69 Truck Stop Cheese Cake. The idea was a cheese cake based off a truck stop breakfast. The layers were (from bottom up), A crunchy caramel waffle crust, strong black coffee mocha cheese cake filling, a maple pancake, an eggy vanilla filling, another maple pancake, black coffee mocha filling and top it off with 3 strips of crumbled, salty bacon. That's a big 10-4 Good Buddy!
