This weekend was a happy one. I was fortunate enough to spend it reading, rearranging, and eating delicious meals. The highlight of the two days was my special trip across the heartland that allowed me to indulge in the quaint cookings of The Blue Owl (http://www.theblueowl.com/).
I had visited The Blue Owl a few years back, after hearing stories of their nine-inch high pies. Not only were the desserts mouthwatering, but the country-cooked meals reminded me a place we used to eat at when I was younger. This time dining, I opted for the fan favorite of chicken-fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy. Not the healthiest choice, but boy, was it tasty! The biscuit was so crumbly, gravy so creamy, and green beans so flavorful. The crispy coating on the steak crunched nicely in contrast to the velvety potatoes. Sadly, I only experienced the cakes and pies on the lonely side of the glass displays.Happy Spring!
