I’m sitting at the Northwest Florida Airport (read: a one terminal airport that is the closest thing for anyone living in the Northwest portion of Florida OR Dothan, Alabama) and I figure there is no better time than now to start off my blog…about cooking…while sitting at the airport…eating a stale bagel… while sipping on a vodka cranberry… Hey– you gotta start somewhere, right?
So why the airport, you ask? I am heading to my hometown of good ole St. Louis, Missouri for my bi-annual visit. I lived there when I was growing up until I moved to Phoenix for graduate school back in 2005. I’ve got lots of friends still there and my husband’s parents and family all live there. So the visit really encompasses friends and my most amazing and fabulous in-laws, Vicki and Don! And as a special treat– I’ll be able to see my best friend, Amee, before she and her amazing family moves to California!
So while this post is not directly related to food or cooking, I will be doing an awful lot of eating the next 6 days! And it all starts today when I get to town and I head to my favorite little bistro for some carpaccio at Bar Italia. Later it will be a Lou (St. Louis shorthand for all you non St. Louisans) classic of BBQ pork steaks. YUM!
The rest of the week will be a long winding road of new and all time favorite restaurants, a night under the stars at the Muny, seeing old and dear friends, and catching up all things St. Louis. Oh- and I need a new Cards cap!
So stay tuned for all the
trouble adventure I can get myself into!
