I can just about feel my stomach growing!

When I taught I rarely sat down, didnít have much time for lunch, had salads almost every day, and drank a lot of water.

My retirement passion has become searching for bakeries and local foods when we travel. If there is a bakery along our route I will find it. I found an Italian bakery in Nebraska that has amazing pizza, the best cinnamon buns in Estes Park, Colorado, perfect little bundt cakes in Texas, my favorite donuts in PA, and Florida has the best Mexican bakeries. I discovered I donít like breakfast burritos and a really good danish can be hard to find.

The best pork tenderloin sandwiches and most tender corned beef is in Sedalia, MO and Mollyís Pub in Lancaster, PA had the best blackened chicken Iíve ever had.

Tell me what to eat if Iím in your neck of the woods.

When you come to Texas eat Tex Mex food and drink margaritas. Very yummy!

Barbecue in Texas is great too!

(Then you can try barbecue in North Carolina. My brother-in-law, from North Carolina, claims it is the best. Needless to say, we have little competitions when the family gets together. So far, Texas is still preferred by the Texas part of the family. )

We found a diner in Texas with the good BBQ, great coleslaw, and cornbread. DH and I canít remember the name and had a discussion if it was in Amarillo or Dallas. Oh well...we just remember it was the best!

If you come to San Diego, try all the different versions of fish tacos. The original ones (just across the border in Baja California) were lightly battered and deep fried, but now you can find them deep fried or grilled in holes-in-the-wall Mexican places and upscale restaurants.

You can come to MD and have crabs. Soft shell crabs are my favorite kind.

Seafood! Salmon, swordfish, cod, haddock, clams, mussels, lobster, calamari, scallops and more. You have to try clam cakes and chowder and fish and chips too. Lobster boil on the beach...lobster, corn, sausage, potatoes, clams and more. Oh, and not forget the oysters on the half shell. SO good.

Agree with cvt that you can't go wrong with most fish tacos in So Cal. A glass of white wine (or something with tequila, or even a nice IPA) and the sunset as you greet the balmy evening with flip flops and casual jeans or shorts.....don't forget you can get a cooling marine layer at night, though. There are lots of good Asian cuisines here, too - whether Filipino adobo or Korean BBQ or sushi.

What a fun idea to pack on the retirement pounds and write a book of your travels at the same time.

Come to Georgia and try the pecan pie and peach pie. Guaranteed to add on some pounds!
