Tautology is my favourite "ology"

Defined as the "needless repetition of an idea, especially in words other than those of the immediate context, without imparting additional force or clearness, as in “widow woman.” Does "salsa sauce" count?

Wouldn't it be better if it was spelled: Tauttautology? Just for fun?

You Gotta Eat Here - Roy's Place

Good and honest on the outside, good, honest food inside [photo]
Continuing the series on eating at the places my sister tells me I gotta eat at after she watches Food Network Canada's "You Gotta Eat Here", here is Roy's Place, Claresholm, Alberta. Recently featured with John Catucci. Owner and Chef, Kieth Carlson, was a Chopped Canada runner-up and he shows why just because you didn't win a competition doesn't mean you aren't a serious and worthy contender.

This is a one pound sticky bun with a scoop of kaluha cream cheese frosting [photo]


I had the dill pickle soup (above) with the steak sandwich. Perfection! Everything was generously portioned, which is wonderful when you're travelling with a gigantor son who's low on blood sugar. The flavours were layered and complex but not pretentious.

It was a bit of a drive but worth it and I'd go back just for the sticky bun. Our server told us they've gone from making a dozen a week to 120. One bun is family sized even if one of those family members is a gigantor son.

Check out Keith Carlson on Twitter @roysplacerest, catch him on Facebook here and this is his website. Even better, if you're in the area, drop by.
