February 2017 Lifestyle Letter

My dad (Big John) and I were frequent visitors to CHAS.KINCAID GRO. MARKET (KINCAID’S) during the 80’s and 90’s. I was strictly a cheese and mayo only kinda gal and Big John was a “works” guy. One day our order was mixed up and I had my first taste of mustard, lettuce, pickle, onion, and jalapeno. Surprisingly, I didn’t die like I always thought I would. Big John made sure I was well rounded in my food choices (he is the original foodie) so I am sure that the “mix-up” was intentional. These days, when I go into Kincaid’s, I am tempted to order my mayo and cheese only burger. Then I think about that day and say to myself, what would Big John get, and order it with the works.

This month is Mike’s favorite issue, all about FOOD, and this man of mine can put away some plates. I have seen him eat a MAMA’s Size pizza to himself, eat everything on his plate then start on mine at Aventino’s and gorge himself on bread pudding at Buffalo West. All without gaining a pound. Fort Worth has a lot to offer when it comes to culinary delights. My restaurant buddies work hard to be creative and standout in this sea of food offerings. I personally choose local over national chains because I can feel the love and dedication in each meal.

As always, we hope you enjoy this month’s issue. I think I’m going to call Big John and see if he wants to meet in town for a Kincaid burger.

Hope to see you around town,
