|This is a Livermush with Egg an Cheese. A little egg and a lot of Livermush!|
It is what I've known growing up to be called "Scrapple" only better and tastes a bit close to sausage. Perhaps we could call it a cousin of Scrapple morphed with sausage spices, and different ingredients. When I asked the locals what spices were in there I got the "little this little that" response and so I think this secret recipe must be highly protected at best by the citizens of this area in North Carolina. I even found out the annual "Livermush Festival" is a big to-do. Whatever it is, it's not as fatty as scrapple, doesn't have as much grease, and is darker in color. Did I mention good? It's damn good.
|Tons of vintage cars were lining the festival grounds.|
Now the cars are a usual staple every year at the Shelby Hog Happnin'. Of course they are placed far away from the smoke of the BBQ pits and smokers so as not to get all dirtied up. I am real glad this pink one wasn't for sale because I would not have heard the end of it.
|This modified car looks liked a piece of artwork.|
|"Size Matters" according to Betty Boop.|
|Very unique detailing and ornaments. Again, a fire extinguisher on this truck.|
|Why does this remind me of the Sanford and Son Truck?|
Time to Relax
All of this festival going was very relaxing to me, as I am used to being on the other side of the festival, having to work long hours in the food stands.
|I'm with Betty, size matters.|
