A Little Sustenance for the Road

You would think with all of the food they offered us at every turn during the conference that by Sunday morning we would be anxious to go at least a few minutes without eating, but fortunately this wasn't the case.

Ingrid's Kitchen, 3701 N. Youngs, Oklahoma City (405-946-8444), has a Grand Island connection. My companion from the CVB in Grand Island knows the owners sister, so it was only fitting that we stop in for their Sunday brunch. This unassuming diner has been in business since 1977 features an authentic German bakery, delicatessen and restaurant. The Eggs Benedict on the Brunch buffet are some of the best I've ever tasted.

Guy Fieri featured Ingrid's Kitchen in the Home and Away Episode DV0805 of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. The episode originally aired on February 1, 2010. Ingrid's certainly isn't a Dive!Since we had to get on the road for the eight hour drive ahead of us, we walked in just as they were unlocking the doors at 9:30. Don't let the open tables fool you. By the time we walked out, the place was really starting to fill up. Just look at this dessert table! I really should have walked all the way home after finishing up brunch with a serving of the Chocolate Volcano Cake and Bread Pudding with Brandy Sauce. As it is, I am OFFICIALLY dieting! Tanking season is coming and I still want to be able to float down the river, and then there's that White Water Rafting trip after my son's wedding in Idaho. Gotta look good. After this, it was nothing but a long drive through the beautiful heartland of America. We skirted the Flint Hills of Kansas, but were anxious to get home, so no side trips.

Thanks for stopping by. The coffee is always on.
