This week has been busy for us and Phil is a lifesaver - he has been manning the cafe solo in the mornings! We've also been closing a lil' bit early in the afternoon to get out to the fair grounds and set up before the fair starts.
I've been sampling the fair fare and so far this week have tried a funnel cake, corn dog, tater twister, rib eye steak sandwich, and a bbq beef sandwich. After the first couple bites the novelty wears off and the food leaves you hungry. PLUS, a sandwich is itty-bitty AND it's $5 or $7.50! It makes me miss our little cafe.
I would have traded the funnel cake, corn dog, tater twister, rib eye steak sandwich, and the bbq beef sandwich for one of Phil's breakfast burritos (only $4)!

Today we closed early because my Mom (Kim) and I are going to the fair!!!
In appropriate preparation we're having corn-on-the-cob for lunch. We'll probably indulge in a turkey leg or two (the booth across from us). My friend Jori of J.Bird studios will also be manning the booth with us.
Sorry we missed you for lunch today but come out and join us at the fair! Just look for the "Birds of a Feather" booth.
(It's free and parking is only $3)

Of course, I'm not claiming the title of gourmet chef or anything like that. However, I can make one hell of a blueberry cake!
Life is short and food is necessary - but hey... let's enjoy them both!

It's officially summer and what may I ask you is a better way to celebrate the fact that it's hot and sticky outside?
ICE CREAM - homemade and delicious!
Remember when it was cold outside, looking forward to those hot summer days - now you can dig on these cool treats and remember the chill.
The dessert pictured here has a raspberry foundation, a sweet scoop of vanilla in the middle, and a marvelous chocolate top.
I think tomorrow I'll make cinnamon ice cream!

Tuesdays tend to be more tame, thus making it a great day to try out a new menu item! Howzabout a garden pizza with fresh mozzarella, green pepper, anaheim pepper, onion, basil, tomato, and grilled chicken? I definitely don't mind turning on the oven for this dish!

First, Anthropologie is hosting a “Go Green” event on July 30th on the Country Club Plaza. There is a juried art show that day and the artwork exhibited will be available for sale. www.anthropologie.com
The second event at the end of July/beginning of August is the Wyandotte County Fair. I am teaming up with Jori C. Hebert (owner of J.Bird Studios) to host a booth at the fair! Both of us are extremely excited to show off some of our artwork and wares - as well as promote two fabulous locations in Kansas City, Kansas!! www.wycofair.com
So, if you are looking for an excuse to eat funnel cakes, search the coveted Anthro sale rack, or just something plain fun and interesting to do make sure to mark your calendars!
Hopefully we’ll see you there - Courtney
