Happy March!!

As it turns out, I don’t know what to write about this week! Dang it! I actually forgot that I had to craft some words for foodtrash until late this afternoon. Actually I ate a really scrumptious brunch last Sunday and I was planning on writing about that… but… I apparently didn’t take any pictures. Dang! I will still write about it I assume! I’ll just be sure to throw some other pictures in here!

So this brunch. Was so good. Like. Amazing. If you have never been to Smoke on Cherry Street (that’s the name of the restaurant) then you should make it a priority! I have not been there for dinner, but they have this Sunday brunch, and well you know, I’ve been there for that.

Now for this brunch I had a tough time deciding what to order. Biscuits and gravy with eggs and ranch potatoes or chicken fried pork loin covered in gravy with eggs and ranch potatoes. Ok, guess what I ordered!… Chicken fried pork loin, scrambled eggs, and ranch potatoes. Can I just say I wish someone was spoon feeding me that goodness right now. The chicken fried pork loin = perfectly fried, and the gravy that it was elegantly smothered in was so incredible!! Eggs… Well they were scrambled, but good. I mean, they’re eggs… And the potatoes, kinda spicy and served with a little bit of ketchup on the side. Idk what kind of ketchup it was, but it was not any that I had enjoyed before… And it was great!!

I was literally in awe of the food I was devouring!! I went animal on that brunch! They should have slapped a collar and a muzzle on me!

Moral of the story, go to Smoke for their Sunday brunch. I’m sure their lunch and dinner is good as well.

On another note, my girlfriend and I went to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory here in Stillwater. We got us some good chocolate creations!!

Chocolate covered Strawberry, dark chocolate covered pretzel, Irish cream truffle, milk chocolate truffle, and a cherry bomb!! That trip was well worth it! I love chocolate!!! Love it! Like want to pour it in my eyes I love it so much!

Well that’s all for this week! Until next Friday!

Food. Drink. Whatever.

Food and Good Company

Food has long been a reason for fellowship. Throughout history people have gathered together in order to hunt, prepare food, or feast. I mean, think back in your own life. Most of the time when you get together with friends does it involve eating? Well, for me at least, the answer is yes. Whether it is having dinner together as a family, going to lunch with friends or colleagues, taking customers out to a business dinner, or going out to eat with a significant other. This is one of the things I love about food! I think I love the “getting together with good friends or family” part more than I like eating it. Well, don’t get me wrong, I do like eating it quite a bit.

I think this is quite odd though. Eating is something that we have to do! If we, as humans, go too long without eating food I’m pretty sure, from what I’ve read on Wikipedia, that we die. Well, I guess we die anyways whether we eat or not, sooo I guess that doesn’t matter too much! Anyways, I think that it is odd that we have taken this necessity to survival and made it something that brings people together. Even though I find it odd, I think that it is great! Many great memories, for me at least, have been made around the dinner table. As I was thinking about what to write for my blog this week, I began to think of all the fun times and great conversations that I have had with my mouth stuffed full of food (although it is rare to find me with my mouth not stuffed full of food). What makes this an even more incredible thought, is to think about all the great memories that have been made throughout history around the dinner table, or dinner rock, or dinner tree, or dinner dirt, or whatever people used to eat on.

So, I think that is why I decided to write a blog about food. I thought it was because I love food (which, of course, I very much do), but I believe it is much more than that. It is the people you are eating, I mean, with whom you are eating, that can make a meal fantastic. Well, that is until there is only one roll of sushi left and you have to stab someone’s eyes out with a chopstick so that you can get it!!

To food and good company!
