I have to admit, I'm one of those people that has a hard time branching out and trying new things when it comes to going to our favorite out of town restaurants. Take Norman for example. This weekend we did what we always do: Friday- Arrive late. Go to BJ's Brewhouse and eat dinner and have a microbrew. Saturday- Go eat at Ted's Cafe Escondido and feed our faces until we're miserable and need a nap. Take a nap. Saturday night- Usually go to The Mont. Sunday- go have brunch at Seven47. Either that or squeeze in ONE more meal at Ted's. If I were able to stay longer I'd also have to include a trip to Johnnie's Char-Broiler and have a theta burger, or go to Fuzzy's Taco Shop, or Victoria's Pasta Shop.
Do you see a trend here? I love to eat. It's why I'll never be skinny.
Because I live so far away from my favorite places I try to replicate the recipes. Here's a couple of Norman inspired recipes.
It goes without saying that when we're at Seven47 we're going to have the matchstick fries. Here's my shortcut take on those:
My next copycat recipe attempt will be eggs benedict inspired by Seven47. It was amazing! Sweet peppered bacon, shaved ham, poached eggs, and an out of this world hollandaise sauce. I'm determined to figure this out!
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest!
