Popcorn is not just for movies anymore

Popcorn is one of those extra expenses that go with movie-going. How's a fellah gonna watch Captain America save the nation without a large tub of salty, buttery popcorn to get him through all those action scenes?

TV food shows not what they used to be

I watch a lot of reruns of The Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," in which chef Guy Fieri travels around the country, showcasing hometown restaurants the locals love most.

Maligned Spam is versatile, packed with memories

Computer geeks have their own language. It's interesting to me that so many words in geek language are food-related, like microchips, bits, bytes and, especially, spam.

Shrimp is king of the shellfish

One of my first jobs was cleaning tables and washing dishes part-time for a seafood restaurant in Sneads Ferry, N.C. The Riverview Café didn't pay much, but they offered an always-hungry teenager the best bennies package in the world - all the seafood I could eat.

Pimento cheese is Southern caviar

Salted sturgeon eggs ought to taste something like the mullet row I used to eat when I was a boy. But since caviar sells for about $50 an ounce, I'll never know.

'Best breakfast in town' -- yeah, right

The large billboard could be seen half-mile away when traveling north on I-95, near the town of Dunn, N.C. The colorful ad depicted a large dinner plate with two eggs over-easy, several slices of bacon and a generous portion of good ol' Southern grits.

Vindicated over once 'bad' foods

This column, "Around the Table," has celebrated a number of foods the so-called experts tell us are bad. I quietly but forcefully tell these control freaks to leave me alone. I'll eat what Georgia boys have been eating since 1733. I have a wife and a mama; I don't need a nanny.

Bologna conjures up fond memories

I like bologna - the mild sausage made from beef or meat scraps (beef, pork, turkey and/or chicken), not baloney, the mess you hear from TV infomercials about snake-oil pills that increase your memory, help you lose weight, fight bad breath and increase your personal wealth.

Tomatoes are terrific summertime treats

Every day, twice a day I check my garden to see if I have any "maters" ripe and ready for picking. In less sophisticated parts of the country, this veggie-fruit is called a tomato, but I live in Georgia, so I call them maters.

Doughnuts are poor man's dessert

It doesn't matter if you spell it donut or doughnut - these little ring-shaped dough cakes are deep-fried and smothered in sweetness. Donuts are a poor man's dessert.
