Kansas City

This past weekend, I made a trip to Kansas City to visit Naomi and her fiance, Bruce. And while we did some other fun things (wedding dress shopping, regular shopping, dog snuggling), the food was my favorite part. Probably not surprising.

One night, Bruce grilled up some pork chops, peppers with cheese and one very special pepper with an egg inside. It looked really awesome and I kind of want to try to make something similar, even though it probably won't be as good. This is as close as I can find in recipe form and it's making my mouth water. Must have it.

We also had seriously delicious barbecue (though officially as a Texan, I can't say it was better than ours) at this restaurant in a gas station. Yes, in a gas station. Only part of its appeal. It's called Oklahoma Joe's and I would highly recommend it if you're ever in the area.

I should've taken some pictures of all the delicious food I ate but my hands (not to mention my mouth) were full. Sorry!

  1. yayyy!! come back soon. and yeah..i feel the same way about the bbq. i really love it here, but i can't ever admit to bruce that i might like it more than texas. we saw a show where they did a bbq-off between the states, and some weird state won with tx and kansas maybe tied for 2nd. it was sort of lame. they must have made a sucky state win just so the argument could be laid to rest. alas, it is a major point of contention in this household...
