Oreos

I would like to celebrate two things: Spring time and Oreos!  Besides these Spring Oreos, I’ve also gotten to try the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreos and they are amazing.  Next stop, Red Velvet Oreos…

Westside Local. Super Legit!

Westside Local in Kansas City was amazing.  What a fun, relaxed atmosphere tucked in away in a older building of KC.  They believe in supporting local businesses and farms in the area.  I love their farm-to-table mentality and it shows.  Everything was fresh and delicious.  We started out with deviled eggs, spinach and artichoke dip, and the pint of fries.  Deviled eggs were awesome and the fries, well, were just fries.  Westside does make their own sauces, including ketchup, so that was a bonus with the fries. The spinach and artichoke dip came out cold –which was an interesting take on the dip, but totally tasty!  As we tore through the starters, we weren’t sure how far we would get through our entrees, but we managed.  🙂 I got the Windhaven burger with local green, Shatto cheddar, local beef and ham, garlic aioli on a asiago bun, with a side of potato salad.  Will. Be. Back.

Yasss! The Burger Stand!

IMG_1762Got an opportunity to go to The Burger Stand in Lawrence.  Love this place!  Instead of a burger, I decided to try something new and got the Barnyard: chicken, cheese, bacon, and avocado –hold the sauce.  This sandwich was legit and you can see why this might by my norm when hanging out at the Casbah.  On the side were the best truffle fries a girl could order.  Those were gone immediately.  🙂
