because what is life without good food?

Travelling Foodie

A Foodie Goes to Lincoln, NE

What does a foodie mom do when she takes her son to a TaeKwonDo tournament? … she watches her son compete, then makes sure he has everything he needs and while he is busy judging, she sneaks out of the tournament, has a nice lunch, takes a few pics, then goes back to join all our friends at the tournament. Come along … I’ll show you … well just the “lunch” part … that’s what you wanted to see anyway, right?

First, I had to run back to the hotel to check out. This bike sculpture was just in front of our hotel. Isn’t it cool?

There are still flowers blooming in Lincoln! In November!

I love this purple one …

I wanted to eat at “The Dish”, but it’s not open for lunch on Saturdays (Boo!) … so I found the Blue Orchid, a pretty little Thai place not too far away …

When you walk in, this is what you see: green walls, white tablecloths, blue glass, silver pitchers and real flowers on every table.

This one’s my table:

I ordered the Yellow Curry with Chicken. The lighting was not the best for the picture, but the taste was divine:

And I found a beautiful tree on the way back to the tournament:

The clouds were spectacular today too … see them peeking out behind the tree?

My whole day was gorgeous, but now I’m home and I’m exhausted! Goodnight my friends.
