Jane and I had a quick trip to Wilmington to see my brother over the past two days. On the way home, we stopped for breakfast in Burgaw, North Carolina. It's a sweet town with a thriving main street and lots of friendly people. This beaming duo welcomed us to the Alley Cats Cafe in the lively old downtown.
Even though we're mostly vegetarian, Jane had to try what our waitress (newly relocated from Florida) said the locals eat in droves: liver sausage. "It's fresh, you know, from the plants around here," said the waitress.
Growing up in northern Maryland, Jane called it scrapple. Her father ate it with molasses. Our waitress, who said she couldn't bring herself to try it, brought hot sauce cause "that's what most folks ask for down here." It was tasty just as she had predicted, even without condiments.
