I'll be making NY strips for my son and myself tonight ... I've got him for a month. Smile Baked potatoes and corn-on-the-cob for sides.

I love portabellas, they are my favorite mushrooms. That sounds great!

Free State has decent stuff... especially beer wise, DO order the sampler. However for burgers, I'm gonna recommend The Burger Stand inside The Casbah. They have a wide variety of meat burgers of course, and several veg burgers that nearly put meat to shame. These are some serious sliders, fleshed out by some serious gourmet chefs - these guys mean business.

Their Spicy Shiitake pretty much kills any competition, in my opinion. All their burgers are ridiculouly jucy... let's just say... you're gonna need a few paper napkins. They also have a variety of fries ... the holiest of holy: Truffle Fries. Get the small order or you will fall asleep in your food before you finish them.

Kim - I used to go to the SOMA (Society of Open-Minded Atheists/Agnostics) student group's public events, there in Lawrence. I haven't been there in 10 years, so I dunno if the same person is making it, but I had a friend who worked at The Mercantile and she made a vegan carrot cake in their deli that is quite literally the best dessert I've ever had. No eggs/milk/butter... Tofu frosting... AMAZING. Better than the real thing.

Ha! So funny - I'm an owner of The Merc - BEST co-op in the world. Thumbsup
And yep - member of SOMA, also.

Lawrence is a pretty smart place - people really care about community.... a free thinking community. That's why I spend my weekends there. Wink

Kim - Small world. How cool. Glad to hear SOMA's still kicking ass around those parts. Do you know SOMA's original university staff sponsor, Dr. Paul Mirecki, the former head of KU's Religious Studies dept? He was someone I considered a friend, and I lost touch with him after he was assaulted for making fun of "Fundies" on the SOMA message board, which got hacked by a Christian and posted publicly. (Also caused him to step down as head of the dept.)

My fiancee graduated from KU with a BA in Biology in 2006, and she and our son still live in Gardner. This month, they're coming to see me down here (arriving Sunday... hooray!), but I go up there every month or so, maybe you could show me Lawrence's latest goodies, next time I'm in Kansas?

Yay, fatherhood! Big Grin

I'm still trying to plan what I'm gonna cook for my son when he gets here, Sunday. I get him for a week, though part of that's gonna be down in Louisiana with my folks and various aunts/uncles/cousins, who are no doubt gonna be making me a lot of Cajun food (which my very Kansan son is unlikely to like, so it may take more preparation, come to think of it).

I see a LOT of starch on that plate. Bet he was happy. Looks good though.

Enjoy your time together, brotha. How old is your son?

Get used to it, bud. I taught my son to play Total Annihilation, now he challenges me to matches with a laugh, knowing that if I'm bold enough to accept he'll still whip my ass.

'Course, I'll be teaching him to drive a stick shift in these few weeks ... payback's a bitch. Smile

I had dinner with my co-workers tonight at a buffet. First time I had steak in almost 9 weeks. The buffet was okay, although my co-workers which included an Englishman, a Pilipino, a Thai and a Chinese thought it was amazing. The other American and I looked at each other and thought otherwise. They had a blend of western and eastern food. Highlight was the ice cream The spaghetti was the worst part of the dinner. It was basically grounded pork mixed with ketchup and tomatoes.

What's for supper? Beer.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.
