My very cute and civic-minded roommate had jury duty this past week, so for the first day lunch break I picked her up, and we went to lunch.
We tried an OKC institution that used to be called Kaiser’s Ice Cream, and is now called the Grateful Bean, but they were closed Monday’s. We made a trip across the traffic circle to Brown’s Bakery to pick up some doughnuts and cookies, and then headed more around the circle to McNellie’s. It smelled pretty good.
I started off with some Chili as my soup. It was very chunky, and not too bad at all. Since the temperature outside was 41F, it hit the spot. I also got the Cottage Pie, with mashed potatoes on the side. Cottage Pie is essentially Shepards Pie, and so had mashed potatoes in it. I didn’t finish the side order, but they were good. The Cottage Pie was really good, not too spicy, but hotter than heck. It had some peas and carrots in it, and the gravy in it was a good complement.
Raegan got a BLT, and she was very happy they had Sweet Potato Fries to to with it. The BLT was more BBBBLT, she took some of the excess bacon off and I ate it. It was a thick cut, with a lot of maple flavor.
We both got iced tea, which was good.
We ended up the meal with a scoop of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.
Our check was $27.60.
