St. Louis Art Museum & Gooey Butter Cake

We took the kids to the St. Louis Art Museum. They really liked it and that was cool to see.  It was nice to share something we love with them.

 I read that Gooey Butter Cake was a must in St. Louis. Any cake sounds good to me. Gooey Butter Cake wasn't good, Gooey Butter Cake was amazing! We tried a bunch of different flavors. Original was my favorite. Oh man, I'm going to be dreaming about this stuff for a long time. It was gooey, buttery, sticky and wonderful.

Ted Drewes Frozen Custard and Mama Toscano's

Everybody I talked to said I had to try Ted Drewes Frozen Custard. This kids were happy to make this stop. The place was pretty cool. Plenty of parking and they had a great system moving tons of people quickly. The frozen custard was great too! They had so many flavors it was hard to decide. I went with Cardinal Sin, tart cherries and fudge. If I'm ever in St. Louis again, Ted Drewes is a must.

I knew toasted ravioli was a St. Louis thing so I searched the internet for the best in the city. Mama Toscano's was always the first to come up. Later I found out that Alex Guarnaschelli picked this place for the "Best Thing I Ever Ate." I knew I had to give it a try. We went there for a quick lunch after a visit to the zoo. We got two orders of toasted ravioli and sat outside. The ravioli were good, really good. I'd definitely go back but I don't think it would be a must. While pretty damn good, they reminded me more of a decent pizza place appetizer than the best thing I've ever ate.

Meet Me in St. Louis

I've been wanting to take the kids on a trip and Memorial Day weekend presented a great opportunity. We loaded the kids in the minivan and went South to St. Louis. So I guess that means you're gonna be getting quite a bit of St. Louis in the blog for the next couple days. We did some fun stuff and had some cool meals. The kids had a blast which is all that matters.

So it seems if we're talking St.. Louis we should probably start with the Arch.
