I have a new food find from southwestern Virginia! If you are heading down Interstate 81 toward Roanoke, Blacksburg and points south, take a quick detour toward Daleville (Exit 150B - Route 220) to some heavenly donuts! Blue Collar Joe's is an old service station that sits on the opposite side of the road and is soooooo worth the u-turn! The donut case reads like a cross between Ben & Jerry's and Willy Wonka with flavors such as Chocolate Cheesecake (a "hole" stuffed with cheesecake!), Glazed Apple Cider, Nutty Buddy, Black Forest, Blueberry Pancake Breakfast (with smoked bacon), Botetourt Bog (triple chocolate) and German Chocolate Cake. These cake donutes are treated like... well, little cakes. Each one is beautiful and delicious.

Really, really, really make a point of stopping in if you're in the area.

Note to self: building pictures are nice, but try to refrain from jumping on the food until you take a picture of it too.

The country cousin of the French Dip is coming to the cafe today - The Smithfield Dip roasted pork loin and savory vegetables sauteed in sage butter and, like its European kin, is also served with a side of essence - in Virginia we call pork essence gravy! And although you are welcome to any of our regular side dishes, The Smithfield Dip will come with a side of fresh green bean salad made with feta cheese, toasted walnuts and a light vinaigrette.

Make sure to stop by and pick up a cup of coffee for the road. Rumor has it traffic will be horrific especially if you are heading north.

And a bag of cookies will make a welcome contribution to the Thanksgiving dessert buffet. You do have a dessert buffet, right?
