We spent last week in Oklahoma visiting Tony's family. We had a great time. I love me some Oklahoma! I lived there for ten years, and I can honestly say that the best people in the world are from Oklahoma. I even married one of them!
As a bonus, on our drive up there, we stopped in Fort Worth to eat lunch at Spiral Diner.
Jackson and Olivia are all about dipping their food, so we decided to order a couple of appetizers for them to share. The Chip & Dip Party included salsa, guacamole, and cashew-based queso.
We also ordered them some hummus. It was a huge bowl of hummus! Even for a family of hummus fiends, we had to have most of it boxed up to take with us.
Olivia loves her chips and dips!
Jackson saw a picture of an ice cream cone on the menu, and started asking for ice cream. We were on vacation, so why not have ice cream at lunch? He loved his strawberry "I-Scream," as they call it.
I had the Veggie Wrap, chock full of greens, carrot, cucumber, peas, olives and raisins, dressed with some amazing ranch dressing. I was happy to be able to get a big serving of veggies while on the road. The wrap came with a side of pesto pasta salad, which was delicious. I love pesto.
Tony had the Sketti & Meatballs. It looked so good, covered in marinara sauce, pesto, and pine nuts. But, he complained that the spaghetti was overcooked. Mushy pasta is never a good thing. He did like the soy meatballs a lot.
I want to say thank you to the bloggers who have presented me with a Liebster award. Liebster is apparently the German word for "dearest" or "beloved." So, Christine at Christine's Chatter, Bethany at Bananas for Smoothies, and Cheryl at A Midlife Vegan+ -- thank you so much, ladies, I am honored!
