Just a few weeks ago, I ventured into Kansas.

I seriously wish trees like this grew outside my house.

That first evening we went to the Blind Tiger Restaurant. Although their website is a bit sad, the restaurant itself is actually pretty cool. It’s a bar and to my surprise, we found out that their German brew actually beat the Germans’ German Brew. Pretty cool!

This Thai Peanut Salad was my favorite lunch (two days in a row) at Juli’s Coffee and Bistro.

We hung out at the Burger Stand at College Hill the second evening. Drank a few brews and had a burger. My kind of meal!

The third evening we went to Chez Yasu French Restaurant. There were some appetizers to start that I didn’t particularly find appealing (creepy crawly things freak me out!)

…but I do love me a good shrimp so I was happy with some shrimp cocktail.

As my main entree (I feel like I should be saying “and for the final act, I present to you…”) I had herb chicken, green beans and potatoes.

That third evening, there were a few tornado warnings and you can tell from the sky that the weather was not going to be pretty. I can’t believe this is a consistent occurrence. I was worried about where I would go or what I needed to do IF a tornado actually happened.

Overall, it was a good trip and it’s always good to experience places completely unlike your own.
