Indiana part 2

Woo hoo part two!! For dinner that night we went to Zydeco's in Mooresville. We had to sit at the bar because they take reservations and we didn't have any. They are only open for dinner. I guess they are opening the other side of the room and will no longer take reservations. I can't wait to go to this place again!! I have been dreaming of the BBQ shrimps Boutte with tasso. Holy cow was it delicious!!!

As I said earlier, they are opening the other side of the restaurant and making it the bar. They are having all the customers decorate oyster shells which they will coat with clear paint and make into a wall - so cool!! mine has a  j  a heart and an s. Scott's has a seal on it and it says seal'd with a x - fun! next time I go there I hope to take a picture of the completed wall!!

funky place

 The owner was very friendly and the people who waited on us were great!! We had bread pudding but it wasn't great. Scott had a hurricane - wicked rum drink!! Delicious!!
We had to get back to our hotel and pack. We left at 4 or 5 am - too early to remember. We had rain on the first part of the drive and sun the rest.

We stopped in Kansas City MO and ate at Happy Gillis the name is a misnomer because nobody that worked there was happy at all. Cute place and good food but the staff was seriously lacking. We were surprised the place was packed - guess the food speaks for itself and you don't go for the people. We didn't have anything that Guy had because they change the menu quarterly. I also saw no signs that he was there - no posters or spray painted Guy heads - nothing. Maybe I didn't look around enough.

neat idea 

cheddar and bacon with apple. white bean salad - delightfully spicy! 

long cooked broccoli with mozzarella  almond and tomato 

roasted turnip and tomato with a dill yogurt 
We got home around 9 pm exhausted!! We unpacked, showered and went to bed!! It's nice to be home. Scott will be gone the 6th-10th - in NC for training. He comes home and loads up a truck and leaves. He has to take possession of his apartment between the 13th and the 18th *sigh*
Hope you all have a good week - eat something fun!
