Anyone who’s driven along a Southeastern interstate will get the title reference immediately–it’s a nod to a Waffle House delicacy, the greasiest-but-most- delicious hash browns EVAH! I’m not sure but the "scattered" might refer to the potatoes themselves, the "smothered" refers to the addition of onions and probably the half-stick of butter per order (culinary tip: if you ever have opportunity to order these, make sure to ask for them "extra crispy"… otherwise, it’s a not-so-pretty-soggy-disgusting waste of calories…imho;) ).
"Scattered and smothered" also seems to express exactly how I’m feeling these days (and why I’ve been absent from the b-sphere); I imagine a lot net peeps can relate.
We’re on the road, visiting some of the sweetest nieces and nephews known to man, and I’m sneaking computer time long enough to check in.
Yep…….as usual, these days leading up to Christmas are finding me in typical form: Not suffering from my insanity, enjoying every minute of it 🙂
Can anyone relate?
Shame on you woman!!!!!
I LOVE Waffle House. We have NONE here. None. Oh what I wouldn’t give for the hash browns scattered, smothered, diced, and whatever all the rest are. I Love them with EVERYTHING!
Mmmmm….scattered and smothered….
I like them JUST that way.
oh golly i think those scattered and smothered might be just the thing to counter the effect of , um, a lot of celebrating last night…..
and yes, i can relate.
just wait til wednesday. it’ll be soooooo quiet.
i’m rather fond of well done “works”
I think we have a Waffle House somewhere in town, but I’ve never been. Now I have to go check it out. I’m all about the “extra crispy” and “half stick of butter” but the onions? Not so much.
Anyway, thanks for sharing your highly entertaining insanity with the rest of us. We enjoy it, too.
Oh…and Merry Christmas, etc.
We drive down to North Carolina every year and our first time we decided to try Waffle House on the way. All I have to say is how can a breakfast place not have Pancakes? I mean, IHOP has waffles!
I love potatoes…anyway they are served.
They give me hiccups. Anyone know the reason why? I’m stumped.
My dad called them Tators, spuds, murphys.
sounds yummmmmmmmmmmmm. my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
merry christmas, hon.
To Robin and Family,
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
