Where I stayed
After too much roadside fast food, Lee's body decided to rebel and our one night stopover turned into two. In hindsight, this was actually a good thing. We both really enjoyed the downtime and caught up on some much needed rest, TV, books and internet. (Lee: 12 hours of pain: not a good thing.)
On our final night in Salina, Lee's stomach was feeling much better so we decided to check out the highly-recommended Mom's Cafe. Now, Salina is a very small town with not much in it, so it was either Mom's or more fast food (which neither of us were very interested in)
Then there was the scones! Certainly not what we expected... nothing like a scone from Australia. Instead, this thing was like a doughnut that looked like a potato scallop. It came with Honey Butter which we were told had to be spread on top of the scone before consumption. Again, we both did as we were told and poured some trans-fatty honey butter onto our fried delight. I have to emphasise that this is NOT a good choice for anyone watching their cholesterol, but as a treat, it was absolutely delicious. Apparently these "scones" are an institution, with people coming from miles away to try these from "Mom's" and now we both understand why.
After a truly awesome dinner - with great home cooking and a second night's sleep in a warm comfy bed, we both felt totally refreshed and ready to resume our US adventure.
Onwards to Maple Canyon! Wagons-ho!
