    1. I’m so happy to see this! I was wondering if you were going to blog about any of our adventures this time around. 🙂
    2. At FuD, always get the nachos. THEY ARE TOO GOOD.
    3. Did I ever see that last photo of us at Gambal’s? I think it’s new to me! Love. Stealing.
    4. Sorry I appear to be elbowing you in the aforementioned photo…
    5. Come back here now and I’ll bake you another pecan pie. <3

      6. It’s a cute shirt. 😉

    Pecan milkshake followed by a pie?! It’s like a heaven sent trip. I make peacan pie… but we call it Kentucky Derby Pie and it has chocoalte chips and bourbon. Tasty.

    I do love the look of that homemade pecan pie. When you’re constantly hopping from one city to another you need to be traveling light and so I’m not at all surprised to see the same outfits popping up time and time again. Having said that, I’ve had my butt stuck in Sydney for decades and I’m always guilty of wearing the same attire! What’s my excuse? xx

    I realized when looking at the picture of you at FUD that I have one of me in the same spot. So even though we’ve never been there together, now it’s almost like we have… just in a parallel timeline!

    It’s too bad that your sandwich was so underwhelming! Amber is totally right. The nachos are a necessity. Also, the next time you’re there, try the Eggy. It’s not something I’d ever considered ordering until I was there in July. The server raved about it, though, and said it was her favorite thing on the menu. Anyway, it’s incredible!

    I’m not surprised to hear that Amber’s pecan pie is off the charts!

    Numerous occasions wearing said-top aside, might I say you are looking GORGEOUS in that photo. And even though I may be a little less commenty at the moment, I am always lurking reading your wonderful posts (jealously).

  6. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh I could almost taste that texture as you described it. In fact I think I was involuntarily chewing while reading it!

  7. CCU

    The homemade pecan pie is what I need right now 😀


  8. Sarah

    That pecan pie looks just perfect. That is all.

  9. Iron Chef Shellie

    lol! it’s a good top ey!
    zomg the food looks so good! <3

  10. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Such a stunning pecan pie. And you two ladies look gorgeous together in that photo!

  11. Allysia

    Like drinking a sandwich…gross simile, ha ha! That’s too bad though, at least there was rye bread. And good company!

  12. Helen (Grab Your Fork)

    It’s always a good sign if life is too busy for blogging! But I’d clear all my schedules to have a forkful of that pecan pie! Argh!

  13. Shenandoah Vegan

    That is wonderful that such a restaurant exists in such a meat-centric area. Doubt I’ll ever get to Kansas City, but now I know I’ll be okay if I do. I enjoy a gloopy sandwich.

  14. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I have started to plan travel / holiday packing purely based on what clothes I took last time, because I have also been wearing the same set of clothes for a great many years, and it starts to seem a little odd when I’m in the same jumper in, say, Tasmania and then also Europe and then also Queensland! I’ve started doing the same to Mr Bite too…he’s even worse than me (or better than me, depending on how you classify minimal clothes purchasing and wearing them until they fall apart).

    Glad you’re enjoying life without the pressure of frequent blogging 🙂

  15. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Mega cute shirt. Of course you’ve hung onto it all these years 🙂

  16. FoodFeud

    I love the name of FUD. It thereby follows that I would probably like everything on the menu too, no? Glad you had some memorable times if not fantastic food.

  17. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    Ohh are you working again that’s why you’re having less time to blog? That pecan pie looks perfect! I’ve never had a good one!

  18. Heathy

    So nice that you get to visit with Amber again. I want another visit with you already!! 😉 FUD looks awesome, i would have ordered the nachos too… but your jakfruit tune-rah has me intrigued! And that pie… oh goodness!!!

  19. Emma

    Thrillanaise sounds like a rap group that your [hypothetical] mom wouldn’t want you to [hypothetically] listen to, cause she’d heard bad things about them from all the other moms.

  20. Sam

    lol “gloop leads to an extraction pipe.”

  21. Louise

    I love that you started with high-vegan (what is that BTW?) and take us to Augustus Gloop that great big greedy nincompoop. Fud makes me think of Gary Larson- just google image cat fud. That pecan pie looks magnificent.

  22. msihua (@msihua)

    Are you asking for clothes donation? Hee hee.. and you are looking gorgeous honey cakes!

    This, this here – “Sadly, though, this was overall too gloopy for me. It was Gloop City. A gloopapalooza. The moist tune-rahh would have been fine on its own, as I did like the taste, but with the dillanaise and “thrillanaise” to boot I suddenly felt like I was drinking a sandwich. Plus, if Roald Dahl has taught us anything, it’s that gloop leads to extraction pipe.” – is one of the funniest reviews I’ve read in a long time. (As you can see I’m catching up on my blog reading!).

    Oh, and I love that top.
