Let me start out by saying I love to eat. I think it's one of the things God wants us to enjoy in life. Yes we do need to eat healthy, but we also need to indulge once in a while. Growing up with brothers and sisters in a family that did not have a lot of money, it was always a treat when the ice cream truck (Mr Softee) came around. And of course one of those rare times where we all got steak for dinner. It made me appreciate good food and realize it is one of the fun things in life to enjoy. I do LOVE my Chicago pizza!

USA Today put together a list of things you need to eat when you're in Michigan.

Of course, Detroit pizza is on the list. I am a big fan of the Detroit Deep Dish.

Another thing you should try is Vernors. It's a Michigan favorite, and yes you may spike with whiskey or vodka to taste.

Something you might not know about already is Chipata. You can find one of these closer to home at Pizza House in East Lansing.

Finally, you know Better Made Potato Chips are on that list. These are a delight have been around since the 1930s.

I know, I know. I'm making you hungry.  I would love to know what your favorite Michigan food is, so please share.
