The whole show was a "history" lesson about the dinosaurs (according to scientists not theologians). As the actor (a paleontologist) would describe the period or dinosaur a gigantic life size robot version would appear and move around. The robots were very lifelike and amazing!
I think Sheri and I had just as much fun as the kids did...
Then all of a sudden out of the trees pops a huge mall complex and the beautiful Hilton Garden Inn.
The hotel was nice and clean. There was a nice view of a creek, or swamp or something out my window.
Overall I ate pretty horrible. Twice we did have time to go downtown and eat at Fiorella's Jack Stack. A premiere steak and BBQ restaurant in Kansas City. It was awesome; fancy table clothes, exceptional service and the biggest ribs you ever saw. Here is a blurry picture of my buddy Arturo trying to eat one! Totally Awesome!
So they opened a new Fresh and Easy market by me. I was pretty excited as I pulled up and saw that they were finally open. I was not that thrilled once I got in. The prices were high and all of the produce and meats were pre-cut and pre-handled, then placed in neat little cellophane containers. Something about other people handling my food before I drop in into the pan is creepy. One of the things I enjoy most about cooking is getting the food from raw to prepared to beautifully plated. Out of utter disappointment I skipped buying anything prepared. I did however find the most beautiful ciabatta rolls. I made a chicken sandwich with them.

They were great! They sang all the good old classics like Neon Moon and some of the great new hits like Believe... Fun night!
I made it with some deliciously tender chicken thigh meat, wheat pasta, carrot, bell pepper, cabbage, peanuts, red pepper flakes and spicy Thai peanut sauce (yea I cheated with bottled sauce).
I cooked and cooled everything, then mixed together for a fresh, crunchy, and spicy salad... it was bomb...
