And as I remember from living there, pancakes (flapjacks) are not often a breakfast thing, more a snack. As are donuts.

Alas, out of the Green Dragon in Wilmington DE.

The folks there raved about the watermelon juice. I found it Meh. Made my won that was much better and slightly more sweet/lemony (added Ziegler Lemonade)

Same thing with their low-cal lemonade, just a Meh. Ok for mixers (4 parts Coke to one part lemonade or less. I much prefer Zeiglers from my local Giant

BBQ and hot sauces will go a long way. Anything cranberry or blueberry

If you have Portuguese vendors near you, try Chourico instead (pronounced Chor-ees). Has the fire of Chorizo w/o the crap. Linguica is its milder, garlicky cousin

Not to sidetrack the thread....my "famous" Woodstock story.

Me and two buds all 19 in the family motorhome well stocked for wine women and whatever set off. We get stuck on that damn highway for 3 hours! We move about a 1/4 of a mile, finally say "EFF it" and jump the median and go surfing in Narragansett for the weekend instead!

Actually, I have now gravitated to Marsala which I find a bit less harsh than sherry..both for drinking and cooking.

And the "cooking sherry" has no salt in it.....just a nice bottle from the local store......not the best; not the worst.
