OK City and Alby

Wow... so it's definitely been a while. I am FINALLY getting to the OK City and Albuquerque legs of our summer road trip. So, here we go.

After STL, Yuri and I made a stop in Oklahoma City. We didn't really do much except stop by Mama E's Wings and Waffles, where we enjoyed some AMAZING soul food. I got the soul food special and Yuri got the wings and waffles. Honestly some of the best wings/waffles I've had in my life...

My soul food special: fried chicken, baked chicken, mac n cheese, mashed potatoes

Leaving our mark

The finished product

After OK City, it was a long and painful drive through Texas with zero scenery until we finally got to Albuquerque. Again, it was only a one night stay, but we made it memorable. We went to dinner at Macaroni Grill (a chain restaurant, but give us a break) and recapped special moments of our trip in crayon on the table. In the morning, we decided to hit up Sophia's Place for some serious breakfast eats.

Are we at the right place?

The menu

Amazing breakfast burrito... I believe it was carnitas (pork)

Huevos rancheros... I think this was also carnitas

After breakfast we were homeward bound, sad that our trip had reached its end, but full of memories to last a lifetime... and also determined to do something similar again!
