Just spent the afternoon making an okra gumbo with shrimp, chicken, and sausage for some friends. And filé.

Blueberry cheesecake for dessert. They gave me a piece to take home. Mmmm!

I roasted a chicken and cooked some asparagus.

Ice cream sundae for dessert -- vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, home made caramel sauce, whipped cream, Spanish peanuts...

And the obligatory cherry on top. Smile


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Chicken and dumplings, green beans, corn bread and hot blackberry cobbler.

LIKE! If you ever happen to be passing through Kansas on I-70, there's a town called Lawrence between Topeka and Kansas City that has the best Portobello Burger. The town is apparently known for having a high vegan/vegetarian population, and so I guess it demands quality, but Free State Brewery's portobello burger was enough to make me almost want to give up meat burgers! Almost.

I live in Lawrence on the weekends and yes, it's foodie Mecca! Thumbsup

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.

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!

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?
