Celebrating an engagement

During our trip last week, we chose a night to go out to eat. It was to celebrate Sarah's and Rusty's engagement.

It's not surprising that Sarah picked one of Guy Fiere's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives to eat at. She watches the Food network all the time.

June 2009, we ate at
Cattlemen's, when meeting Rusty's parents.

January of this year we ate at
Eischen's. So it was only appropriate that Sarah pick another one of Guy's favorite restaurant's to try. This time it was Ingrid's Kitchen. For more than 30 years, Ingrid’s Kitchen has been one of Oklahoma City’s favorite choices for the finest in German food, as well as other European and American specialties.

In 1950, at the age of 15, Ingrid Quitz escaped Berlin by crawling across the border to freedom. In 1977, she opened Ingrid's Kitchen, eventually moving the business to 36th and Youngs - its current location in the heart of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The young refugee’s dream to make Ingrid’s Kitchen a landmark is a dream come true.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

You order from the counter. Here they are looking over their choices.

It was Wiener Schnitzel for Sarah and her Dad, complete with Sauerkraut, Red Cabbage,
and German Potato Salad. I had the same sides but I chose a smoked pork chop. Rusty being non-German, opted out of the sauerkraut and went for a sausage sandwich.

After our meal we had this case to look through for dessert.

And this case too.

But in the end, we chose a carry out. I had a spice bar made with molasses, raisins and cinnamon with a powdered sugar glaze. Sarah and Rusty shared a big almond cookie, actually two cookies with a layer of raspberry jam in the middle and then dipped in chocolate. It turned out to be a two day cookie. Did I say BIG?
It was a great evening and we are so happy for Sarah and Rusty!!! CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to the happy couple. All that food! I'm about as German as they get, but I don't enjoy German food (much to Jim's dismay).

I'm looking forward to geting busy on those table runners. Just say the word!
