We're not in Kansas anymore


We just got back from Kansas City.

My hubby works from home as a "Freight Agent" and did so well last year, that we got invited to the awards weekend. 

This is our second time in the last couple of years, and both times have been a lot of fun.

They set us up at the Hilton Doubletree and pretty much supplied whatever we needed.

 On our down time, we ended up going out to lunch here.


It's a place called Grinders.

When ever we go out of town, we always search for places that Guy Fieri has visited doing his 
"Diners, Drive-inns and Dives" tv show. This is the first time we have actually been able to find one. I was excited.

I had seen this pizza on the show and thought "man I want to try that".

So I did, and it was AMAZING.


It's called the "Bengal Tiger" and was inspired by the flavors of Northwest India. 
This pie starts with a rich green sauce topped with tandori chicken, real crab meat, and the unique flavor of hearts of palm and cilantro. 
I ate it with sliced pepperoncinis which only added to this pizza's "deliciousness" perfectly.
Definitely a "must try" if you ever get the chance. 


They were having a special on Bloody Mary's at the time so that was a given. 
They were really good.



I tried to get some good pictures of the place, but my camera wasn't cooperating and it had nothing to do with the Bloody Mary.


Would definitely go back again.  If you have kids with you, they have a "Grinders West" that is right beside this one and is more family friendly.


We also checked out the River Market downtown.


It was more like a drive by, but it looked like it would be fun to investigate.

We were on a mission to somewhere else.


Guess which way we turned.


It was too close not to check it out.


Didn't stay very long. Luck was not our friend that day.


Look what we returned to when we got home. 


Azaleas in full bloom. Gorgeous!
