I don't think I ate 5 lbs of bacon in a week while on the keto diet. 

Now, if you're talking cheese that's another story......

Well, you know, I
I'm newcomer, to Pennsylvania at least. Someone told me that local cuisine is the easiest way to understand the country, enjoy the real life. I love to find some places with country cooking, simple and authentic. Yeah, fancy places are interesting also, however, you can read any "glossy" lifestyle magazine for it ;)

That pictures took at My Son Rib Shack @Rt19 Waynesburg area and Stone House BBQ @US40  Farmington area.

Could you share yours findings?

I don't know much down that way, but if you are new to Pittsburgh you have to find some homemade pierogi and haluski.   There is probably at least one shop in Washington but honestly your best bet is to find it at a church fund raiser being made by 100 year old women in babushkas.

Thank you Mark, that's interesting. Actually, I remember that my Grandma cooked the pierogi and haluski at home- I still have some Polish blood in my arteries. Traditional American road-house style is my point of interest now.

You might be surprised that word "babushka" means in Eastern Europe the old lady, GrandMa in most cases.

Yes, the European word became the American slang for the head covering.   You could say "the babushkas wearing the babushkas."

In my house growing up and that of my Hungarian immigrant grandmother, babushkas were the colorful scarves that old ladies wore in inclement weather and every women wore in church, other than fancy hats, back when women were supposed to keep their heads covered every time they entered the main part of the church where services are held.
