Heyyyy!! So I forgot to post last week. So I apologize to all my billions of fans. I know you were checking every 10 minutes all day. Well, I’m sorry. Now it’s time for Breckenridge part 2.
We hit the slopes bright and early, if getting out there at 10 in the morning is considered early. We decide to start off the day with a little bit of an extremely overpriced meal. So we grab a bite at a place called Ten Mile Station. It was so, so, not too bad but hey you pay to eat on the mountain. I think I got a vegetarian calzone. It he spinach on it. Yeah, nothing special.
Enough of that. During the evening we decided to grab a bite to eat at a place called South Ridge Seafood Grill. It was amazing!
When we arrived we did not have a reservation. Luckily there was room at the bar and we all ate there. I will begin by saying that the bartender that took care of us was amazing. Probably the best service ever. No doubt. The food was equally amazing.
For an appetizer we got some sort of tuna dip with pita bread. Bombin. Very fishy tasting… But it’s tuna dip it’a supposed to be fishy. We had another appetizer but… Yeah I don’t remember. It’s been a few weeks. I’m sure I will remember right after I finish this post.
Main course equals lamb meatballs! What? Yeah. You want them. I want them. Everybody wants them. They came with this stuff called polenta. I had never had it before but it was good. Supposedly it’s like grits. I know I probably sound like an idiot because I have a food blog and don’t even know what food I was eating. Lamb meatballs. That’s all you need to know.
If you want to know exactly what it is then check out the menu on the link above.
Dessert was some homemade espresso cake thing. I totally should have not procrastinated on this blog post. I would actually be able to remember what I ate. I do remember it was crazy good. It was pretty much like a mousse cake or flour less chocolate cake with an espresso anglaise. Yes if they have it I would recommend it. Just eat it like a cake cannibal. Make a mess. So what it’s a nice restaurant. Eat messy.
Last week was spring break. In honor of this wonderful escape from life, we made an escape to the lovely town of Breckenridge, Colorado. What could be better than a week of snowboarding?!
So we headed off at midnight on Saturday night and arrived in Breckenridge just after noon on Sunday! On the trip there we stopped and had a wonderful breakfast at… Wait for it… McDonalds. Hey sometimes a sausage, egg, and cheese McGriddle is the fuel you need to crank out the final hours on the road. So yeah, we get there at noon or a little after and we are ready to chow down.
We stop to eat at this joint called Empire Burger! Of course I forgot to take pictures. I know. Spank me. Well, this place was pretty tasty. Of course, we had to wait for our whole party to get there before we could be seated so we had to stand in a tiny entry way by the door until the last member of the party got there. They should have seated us. No doubt.
Still, the food was good. They had some absolutely incredible onion rings and some coma inducing fries! One of the best parts was the sauces you can get with the fries and onion rings!! They were great. Leave it to me to forget what sauces we tried, but I’m sure all of
them are fantastic. The burger was pretty good too. If you read my last post you know how much I love a good burger!
Then a little bit after eating I just so happened to fall asleep until 8 or so at night. By the time 10 rolled around, I was ready to eat again. So, off we went to find another place to stuff our face. We stopped at a little taco place called Lucha Cantina! Yeah, it was great! They only had their late night menu when we got there, but that was good enough for me! I got a chicken burrito and crammed it full of everything that I wanted!! They cook it up, roll it up, and then grill the burrito.
So amazing!! Way better than places like Qdoba or Chipotle (which I love, don’t get me wrong)! The ingredients were just so fresh and delicious! No better way to end the night than eating so much burrito you start to speak Spanish!! Yeah, that was awesome!
After stuffing myself as always, it was time to return to the hotel and sleep away the night. The next day was the first day to hit the slopes!
Yeah, I know it’s 10 at night and I’m finally getting around to writing this! You should be lucky I’ve been so diligent to post on here every week. But what can I say? I love doing this!! I wish I had the time to write on here every single day! You all are probably glad it’s once a week! Plus, I would have to start thinking a whole lot to come up with something to write every single day!
Anyways, this week I am going to be talking about one of my favorite local pizza places – Andolini’s! I know there’s one in Owasso, but I have never been there! The Cherry Street location is the spot I like to visit! The reason being that it is closer to my home and I just like Cherry Street!! This place has a pretty good atmosphere! It’s a cool place with exposed brick walls and a partly open kitchen where you can see the pizza dough being flung through the air, and sometimes dropped on the floor, picked up, and made into a pizza crust. I’m just pulling that leg of yours! Yes, you can see them tossing that Pizza dough around, and they do drop it sometimes, but they throw that dough away. It’s pretty entertaining. Which is something that is needed because if you come between 5:30 and 9 or 10 on a weekend night, be prepared to wait a little bit.
After that wait, be ready to order up some appetizers! The garlic knots are so great! They’re covered in butter though, so I would be worried if they weren’t great! Also, the mozzarella slices are tasty tasty! Then, when it comes to the pizza you can’t really go wrong! Last time I went I got the Pizza Rustica and it was ammmmaaaaazzzzziinnnggg!! It’s made Tuscan style with ricotta, mozzarella, prosciutto, sliced sausage and spinach AND the crust is folded over the top of the filling (not quite calzone style). I’ve had many other pizzas and a Stromboli (which you will need to share with somebody unless you live in a zoo, have floppy ears, and are named… Ok if you’re a freaking elephant ) there and it was all drool inducing.
Now we can’t stop there! Oh no. The dessert is fantastic as well! So fantastic that we have gone there for simply their desserts. The Italian butter cake and Oreo cheesecake brownie = mind blown! I will say that I am pretty sure I have figured out how to make the Oreo cheesecake brownie though (but don’t tell them that). Nonetheless, if you aren’t on the verge of death from eating too much after leaving Andolini’s, then you aren’t truly living. Get American! Eat pizza and gorge yourself!
P.S. Sorry I didn’t take too many pictures. You can spank me for it later.
Yeah I know that is a picture of a single bagel! Well technically it is a “breakfast bagel” from the Old School Bagel Cafe in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The breakfast bagel is exactly what it sounds like, it is a bagel with either sausage or bacon, eggs, and American cheese. This one was made using an everything bagel, but you can have it in any bagel you want. Today I got it with a jalapeño bagel and last Sunday I got it on a chili bagel. I love these things. Matter of fact, I devoured one this morning (the one in the photo was consumed about a month ago), and I mean it didn’t stand a chance.
So, bagels! What makes those little doughy masterpieces so amazing! It must be the hole in the middle (that’s what she…)! Now I know that there is a rumor going around that New York bagels are the best. Well, they are pretty dang good! When I was in New York City I made a stop at a little place called Ess-A-Bagel! Yes, that bagel was great! I can’t recall exactly what I got but it seems like it was simply a bagel with cream cheese. Yeah, it pretty much proved that the New York bagel is the best.
Yet, let us not get too far ahead of ourselves in drawing these conclusions! The Old School Bagel Cafe has bagels that are just as good or at least come pretty dang close. Yes, yes, the breakfast bagel is a favorite of mine, but the bagels with cream cheese are simply TO DIE FOR!! I got the blueberry bagel with honey almond cream cheese and I ate that thing as hard as I eat things. Yeah that made a lot of sense. I know I just ate a bagel this morning but I’m already craving another.
