Are you ready to rock? Because here comes this week’s rundown of Tulsa blog posts worth ignoring the laundry, the dishes and/or your personal hygiene routine for another 30 minutes or so.
That’s Baloney! I want to start today with this little tidbit from a blogger known around town as Jonni Baloney. Because I’m sure she’s not the only person who has had to explain to someone else, child or otherwise, why exactly a vehicle is sporting decor from its hitch made to look like male underparts. Welcome to Oklahoma, baby.
And yes, someone please get to work on Jonni’s car boob idea.
Tulsa State Fair wrap-ups. Relive the 2010 fair with Cindy’s Clipboard, Tulsa Food Blog and Michael Cooper with This Land Press. The Real Housewives of Oklahoma has a post about the fair, too, complete with a fair sighting bingo card. Oh, and Dana and her four children (four! Including a set of red-headed twins!) made it through the fair, too, though some pantslessness was involved.
Tulsa Food Blog. Speaking of TFB, check out the awesomeness that was going on there this week:
- Getting Fresh at Compadres Mexican Grill (one of my new favorite restaurants, too);
- Tulsa’s restaurant week continues at five Tulsa restaurants;
- Learning to make pasta with Chef Bowen at Sage Culinary Studio (pasta, Chef Bowen and Sage Culinary Studio? Amazing overload!);
- The review you’ve been waiting for: Rex’s Chicken.
This Land Press. And speaking also of This Land Press, check out these posts from Oklahoma’s newest journal:
Running Tulsa, by Jessica Baxter. I love what Jessica says about how running can be an organic method for urban exploration.
The End of Circulars, by Lindsey Neal. Lindsey talks to Gerald Buckley about Grocio.com, a Tulsa-based company that distributes grocery circulars. Could the proliferation of smartphones mean the end of paper coupons? Read on.
And So She Blogs. Carrisa makes it through an interesting moment in the bathroom at Mimi’s Cafe. My thought? I am totally going to do stuff like that when I’m 80.
Tulsa Gal. Nancy hatches yet another Tulsa history mystery, this time about Tulsa’s war memorials.
Tulsa SPCA. Am I the only one who oooos and awws over the animals featured on the Tulsa SPCA blog? Makes me want to buy a giant farm and adopt and feed and love them all.
The Noshery. Meseidy gave a fall table dinner party that got her to the next round in the foodbuzz Project Food Blog contest (which is a big damn deal, by the way). It’s no wonder – practically everything she made was from scratch, including the ricotta cheese. Seriously. If you love food, you absolutely must read this blog.
The Art of Manliness. Brett and Kate serve up a list of 19 common edible plants. Which is always good to know, if you ask me.
Crash Test Mommy. Jenny acknowledged in a post last week that starting to write is hard. But, start we must, and Jenny has the encouraging words to get you going.
Global Table Adventure. Food from Chile and China – that’s what’s on tap at Sasha’s Global Table Adventure, a blog that charts a Tulsa family’s journey through 195 countries, one meal at a time.
Vegging Out in T-Town. Hear ye, hear ye, vegans of Tulsa: Brigid at Vegging Out in T-Town has found vegan, gluten-free crepes at, where else, Mod’s Coffee and Crepes. Now you can feast your eyes and your face.
