Pinteresting Tuesday – Old vs. New

Yikes! I’m a day late again on my Pinteresting Monday, so we’ll just call it Pinteresting Tuesday this time. We’re still in St. Louis on our house hunting trip, and we just put an offer in on the house we want. Now we’re waiting on pins and needles waiting for “the call”. Fingers crossed! I’m sitting here in our hotel room with the little guy watching Sesame Street, while I try to get this post up. I didn’t have to think too long about the theme I wanted for this Pinteresting post.  Since we’re moving to St. Louis, home of some very tasty local dishes, and moving from Springfield – also home of some very tasty local dishes. I thought Old vs. New would be perfect!

Anyone from Springfield will be able to guess the number one dish we’re known for…Springfield Cashew Chicken!  Another yummy treat that’s lesser known is our Pineapple Whip. As soon as the weather warms up, I’m impatiently waiting to see the little yellow trailer stands that go up in a few select locations around the city. People, this stuff is heavenly nectar. If you come to Springfield for no other reason, come to try this delicious concoction. I’m not really sure how they make it, and I don’t care, my main concern is how fast I can shovel it into my mouth. It’s not really ice cream, not custard, not really yogurt, and not sherbert, but kind of a hard to explain mixture of all four. It’s dairy free, but really creamy, and when it starts to melt a delicious puddle of pineapple juice forms in the bottom of the cup. THIS is my favorite part. Enough said.

Now onto St. Louis! Of course you have your Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, this stuff is sinful and oh-so-worth it. I love all the different variations you can try. Another local St. Louis dish is Toasted Ravioli. Generally, some type of meat or cheese is wrapped in ravioli, then breaded and deep fried until the shell becomes slightly crispy and golden brown, this is the reason for the toasted name. Add a bowl of tangy marinara sauce for dipping and you have a finger licking good meal!

Note: I've just started having these annoying text enhance links show up in my posts, and I can't figure out how to remove them. Bear with me while I get it taken care of. :)
