ks treats

Wow. It's been a month since my last post. I've been really busy with the end of the school year (almost done!) and traveling. We went to Kansas for a long weekend and had a great time with all our friends there. And we also ate A LOT.

Lunch: we tried The Burger Stand at Dempsey's. If you live in the Lawrence area, I very highly recommend you go there. We can't eat any other burgers for awhile. These were that good.

Matt's: Kobe burger with pickled red onions, truffle butter, and microgreens on brioche bun

mine: blackened patty with Maytag blue cheese, Granny Smith apple chutney, and microgreens on brioche bun

Truffle Fries: potato fries tossed in truffle butter and Parmesan cheese with roasted garlic/Parmesan sauce, homemade cherry-pepper ketchup, and guadillo chili dipping sauce

Everything was unbelieveable. We had amazing wine at our friend's family's vineyard in the afternoon. Then, dinner: THE best onion rings from Free State Brewery. We had been craving those for some time. Unfortunately, no pictures.

Dessert: one of our favorite Lawrence restaurants, Pachamama's, with one of my all-time favorite desserts.

Molten Brown Sugar Cake with seasonal berries, fromage blanc sherbet, berry coulis, crunch, and almond tuile

And this was all in one deliciously hedonistic day!
