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.

Andolini’s Pizza on Cherry Street

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.

Eats on the Streets

Oh no!!! It’s 9:03 p.m. and I haven’t written my blog yet!! Omg!! So many people probably checked in to read this wonderful blog and didn’t see a new post! Just kidding, just kidding. Nobody has looked at my blog today. Well, at least that’s what the stats say. So, what’s getting the foodtrash verbiage this lovely Friday??

Street vendors! Yeah, that’s right. The great ol’ American street vendor. They’re great! Who doesn’t love street vendors?? I for one do! Nothing better than getting a wet sloppy hot dog from a greasy fellow at a food cart (disclaimer: not all food cart vendors are greasy, and not all are men).

Now I’m sure all of my wonderful readers are thinking “why this topic”. Well, I will tell you why! Last night I made a stop at a hot dog cart and got me a wet, meaty, wiener! Yeah, this one was the bomb! It goes by the name “The Dirty Curty”! Let me tell you, it makes you feel dirty! Well only if you spill all of the chili and cheese on you, which I did not do for once! So I guess I didn’t feel too dirty. Now that I mentioned the Chili and cheese I should probably inform you of what this dog was topped with – cream cheese, chili cheese, and shredded cheddar! So freaking good! If your mind isn’t telling you that then you need to get a refund on that junk you’ve been using for a brain! Anyways, it’s good.

Yeah, I love food vendors. I’ve eaten at taco trucks on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere Arkansas, and I’ve eaten an Italian sausage off the side of the street in New York. Both were amazing. No doubt about it. If you are thinking that food vendors serve trash for food, well you may be right. But this is foodtrash, so that works for me. Here is my weekly brain spill for you – if you see a food vendor and are feeling a little empty in the gut, then fill that gut with some street food goodness. No second thoughts. Eat up!

Food. Drink. Whatever
