Idle Thoughts

Before the Friday afternoon cocktails take hold, I thought I'd share a quick post.

First, I'd like to thank my readers who suggested recipes for my idle squash. I've opted for the squash and black bean burrito shared by Marianne Wille. Marianne, thanks! I plan on preparing it tomorrow for lunch tomorrow.

Lately I've been thinking a lot about the Kansas Sampler Foundation's recent announcement. They announced the 24 finalists for The 8 Wonders Of Kansas Cuisine. I'm still digesting all of this, and I hope to comment later.

I've visited 9 of the 24 finalists, and I'm eager to try more of the restaurants.

Get out there, dine at these restaurants, and cast your vote.

Tomorrow, I'll be back in the saddle. I'll post about my cocktail, the Ramos Gin Fizz, barbecuing, and the squash and black bean burrito.

Queue up the Sinatra and dance cheek to cheek tonight,

We saw this in the paper the other day too! We were making a list of the places we haven't been so that we can make sure to hit them all eventually. Thanks for your comments over on Jayhawk Girl's Kitchen. Glad to have another Lawrencian around! Now I'll have someone on my RSS that can relate to what's going on here. Looking forward to reading more of the Greasy Skillet.
