Would you like lard with that?

Part of traveling is experiencing local culture, and so we felt inclined to visit the International House of Pancakes during our recent trip to Florida. We knew American portions were generous, and the food was sometimes pretty unhealthy, but were quite unprepared for what awaited us.

The picture on the left was taken from the menu. So that's dipped in batter, then fried, then smothered in gravy. Plus pancakes. I felt my arteries hardening just by breathing in the atmosphere.

I did have some pancakes and syrup though. When in Rome, etc. At least I didn't have cheese. Unlike Will.
