Propaganda & Stromboli

We are on our way to Disney World with the rest of the Eastern seaboard since it's Spring Break. On the way, we stopped in Santee, SC at Maurice's Barbeque. Great smoked pork with a tangy, sweet mustard sauce. And we are talking mustard yellow. However, the confederate propaganda was way over the top. Stickers, posters, flags, literature - even a book about Confederate Jews! To top it off, Maurice had his portrait hanging in the dining room with a Confederate flag in the background. As good as the BBQ was, I felt slightly nauseous.

In you are ever forced to stay in Palm Coast on your way to more interesting parts of FL, check out Caruso's Italian Cuisine in Old Kings Common Plaza. The decor ain't hitting on much (no sign of a Confederate flag, though), but the Deluxe Stromboli was fantastic! Light crust, fresh-tasting tomato sauce, good mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, sausage, onions, and green peppers.
