Food Porn in The 'Kan


The Chows were talking today that changing my diet was the best thing that ever happened to them because Bellemaison in now never out of turkey hot dogs. Those Chows know and savor their delights.

It's been a good year here since I embarked upon a journey of healthiness and from time to time, some of the old habits still pop up, typically when The Christ Child makes a cameo in The 'Kan. When he does, we indulge in food porn. What? You're shocked? Oh grow up. We have huge appetites around here. We hike and bike and run and walk and lift and ski. But we love to eat. Herewith are some of the favorites; and if you're ever in The 'Kan, we'd LOVE to pleasure you, so pick one. It's yours, our treat.


Hooligan and Hannigan Corned Beef Sandwich with fries and ranch dressing O'Doherty's Irish Grill cooked by Tim O'Doherty himself, this is a feast of grease and salt

Orange rolls Spokane Club with a pat of real butter with each bite, why not schedule the angioplasty for right after?

Chicken, huumuus and feta pita Pita Pit Had to give 'em up for Lent but since Easter, I've had at least one every day

Calzone Pete's Pizza Ricotta, Pepperoni, mushroom and black olive with that crust. I don't think speaking of that crust is consistent with the decency standards set by Blogger.com.

Hash Browns and Gravy Frank's Diner Hard to know whether to smear it all over yourself and roll in it or to eat it.

Rare roast beef Spencer's Steakhouse Prepared to perfection; leaves you in a perfect stupor.

Gray Goose Martini, dirty Peacock Lounge chilled icy glass; flawless execution; utterly sublime.

Hot chicken caesar Salad Shenanigan's gives us a shudder of pleasure just to list it.

Pea Salad Clinkerdagger's cold, crunchy, carumba!

Grilled Chicken Burger w/tomato chutney Sawtooth Grill uniquely tasty and messy


Butterflied Coconut shrimp Luna served with orange marmalade, will spread anyone's wings and then leave 'em limp.

Arroz con Pollo Fiesta Mexicana gooey with cheese and sauce and pleasure.

Fish and Chips Dick's another veritable feast of salt and grease but with indescribable ambiance.

Teriyaki Chicken Mustard Seed sweet, salty, sensational.

Calamari Caesar Salad Twigs oh, yeah, this what I"m talking about! lunchgasm

Turkey Sandwich/popcorn Domini's the lunchtime coma-inducer of downtown.

Hot Dog Frank's Franks just like on the streets of Noo York Citty!

Onion rings w/tartar The Onion tangy dill pickle tartar with greasy crunch.

Ginger Creams Something Else Deli spicy cake and cream gives your mouth a rubdown.

But I've saved the best for last: cheeseburgers. We get those at JBelle's on The Patio, complete with lettuce and tomato, thick sliced onion and dill pickle and sesame seed bun. Food for the Gods!

You know, we may be as onery as hell in our family, but damn, aren't we all good eaters?

Now, this might not be high on the list for some. In fact, it might have not made some people's list, but what about the Big Zipper and a tub of fries from Zips? There's nothing like celebrating a victory over Mead with a greasy, dericious burger, fries and milk shake. :)

jb3ll3 said...

hmmm.

All I can say about that is this: some of us don't have the metabolism of a race horse, say a state wrestling champion, so we have to stay away from Zip's. But if I were to list a Big Zipper and a Tub, I'd note that it's a tub of trans fat that feels good, looks bad, a real reward at the end of a quest. That be okay?

To me, eating is an investment greater than any of the other ones out there. I'd rather stuff a nice piece of deliciousness down my throat rather than a rice cake or a piece of cardboard.

BB, you remain, deliciously easy. :) xxxooo

You know what I feel like right now? a big piece of crazy, crazy chocolate cake; guaranteed cholesterol spike of 80 points!

off to see the other felons in my life....

It's been further pointed out to me that I missed the fried green beans at Gordy's and the deluxe Foccacia at Rock City
Grill. So many calories, so little memory.

Please send your recipe for arroz con pollo. I've tried a few so far but have not found THEE one. Until then the search continues.

Oh, and I think I'll try the coconut shrimp. I have a wicked hankerin to satisfy a certain someone and then leave him limp ;-)
