Dear Loaded Baked Potato:
Butter, sour cream, cheese, bacon, chives, and ranch dressing (Yes…I said ranch dressing)… All mixed together harmoniously inside of a potato baked to perfection. Could I be dreaming? Is this really a reality? How could you be so filling, yet oh so delicious? How could you, a simple, starchy vegetable that has sustained society for hundreds of years, be mixed with a potpurri of toppings and change my life like you do? You make eating a steak THAT much better. You are mixed with a salad and provide the perfect addition of carbohydrates to my diet. Don’t let those Atkins diet crazies get you down. The Okie Foodie appreciates the rich carbohydrates you provide. You are an unfailing side dish, that can sometimes even be turned into an entree. You are the ultimate comfort food. Thank you for being you. Don’t change a thing and keep on sustaining human life as you have done for hundreds of years.
Dear Braum’s Ice Cream Cone,
There you are… In all of your sugary beauty… I drive all around Oklahoma and pass your simply decorated stores with the fun 80s photography pictures inside of hamburgers, banana splits, and cow pastures with your colorful pink ice cream cone sign out front and I instantly have a craving for a single dip of butter pecan in a waffle cone. I fight the urge to pull through the drive-thru, but your sugary goodness draws me in time and time again. I receive the perfectly crafted ice cream cone at such a cheap price (those east coasters pay upwards of $5 for ice cream) and I wonder if you have been sent to Oklahoma (and north Texas and Arkansas) directly from God to satisfy my sugary desires. You are simple. You are unchanging. You are an old reliable friend on a bad day. You make me very happy. Thank you for being you.
