I seriously think I'm clueless to Oklahoma foods or I just never go and eat at hole in the wall places because none of my peers seem to be eating this stuff or even know what half of it is.
Dang you don't even know what your missing.

8. Meat pies= A bun with meat, taters and cheese inside. Sooooo yummy!!

9. Corn soup= soup with corn and beef or hominy and pork

10. Comods= Commodity food . Commod cheese aka govt cheese

I thought only NDN's ate commods! My cousin used to have a whole closet full of commods with no labels.

So when you opened a can you never knew what you were going to get. I remember we used to say, MAN, I hope this is pork or beef stew!

Our meat pies are meat and potatoes inside a frybread, deep fried.

We have some specialty foods for the ceremonials. I have never liked pecan pie, its too sweet for me.

That commod cheese was great. You would get 2 5 pound blocks a month. I never liked that funny lunch meat that came in a can though. YUK.

Do people in OK eat moon pies? For me, they're too sweet to eat on a regular basis, but they go well with a good hot cup of coffee.

My favorite non-breakfast grits are green chili cheese grits.........

We STILL eat all of that stuff... Except for the comods... Man what I wouldn't give to get my hands on some of that cheese again! I could (and would) eat myself sick on that stuff. Closest I have ever found is Kraft DELUXE singles, but it's still not the same.

First thing I ever learned to cook was biscuit gravy...at the ripe old age of 10. Over the years we have gone "up town" on the corn soup... now I add potatoes and ham.

They ARE too sweet for me anymore, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the originals out here. On the west coast you can only find "Scooter Pies"

Hey everyone!

So I am currently posting this message from the Motel 6 in Stillwater, Oklahoma! I woke up early (4 AM) this morning to catch my 7:05 flight to Memphis. It was a very small 50 seater from Northwestern Airlines. I couldn't even completely stand up in the darn thing. We had a short layover in Memphis then to Oklahoma City. The second flight was much better. Bigger plane and more leg space. Plus I was able to knock out a couple chapters of a really good book that I am reading for school. The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. I don't know if anyone has heard about it. But anyways, so we get our rental car, put on some country music and start heading north to Stillwater. It wasn't too long of a drive, it was pretty easy to get there too. And it gave me a chance to see the scenery around here. It's really nice. Very green and lush. Although I did notice that the soil here is very red like a clay color. Rather out in Maryland where it is more of a sand color. I don't know. Just a random observation. So we make it to Stillwater. Oh, by the way people drive really fast here! So we make it to Stillwater and check into our hotel room. It's Motel 6 so we got what we paid for. But it's alright it just means we can spend more money on food and such. Then we (my mom and I) figure we should go cruising around a little bit. We see some things we like and some things that we didn't like. But over all my first impression of Stillwater is a positive one. Then after cruising around and cruising on the OSU campus a bit we both realize that we are extremely starving because neither one of us have eaten since this morning around 6 AM! So we wanted to get a good steak but we settled for ribs at Rib Crib if anyone knows where that is. Also if anyone knows where to get a good steak here please let me know! After stuffing our faces full of delicious ribs we headed back to our hotel to take a nap since we really didn't get all that much sleep last night. And that brings us to the end of my adventures so far in Stillwater. So if anyone knows of any good restaurants or cool places that I should check out while I'm here let me know! Oh yea, so I realized that it is legal in OK to gamble so I asked the lady at the front counter at Motel 6 where a casino was and she said there was one in Perkins or something so I looked it up and unfortunately it said you have to be 21 to enter. Also she told me that you can't drink alcohol on holidays and sunday in OK too. What's up with that? And also that until recently you couldn't get a tattoo in OK either? That's silly! Well everyone thanks for listening to me rant and rave. I am tired so I'm going to take a nap. Yall take care!

Casey...I'm glad to heard your trip went fairly well.
There's tatoo Parlors all over OK.
I never heard about not drinking on Holidays or Sunday's either, but I don't drink so what do I know?
