Obama and I are SO on the same food page.

Just a few months ago, when I was in Evanston, Illinois, my whole family was being super-bitchy so we had to stop and eat somewhere. We stumbled upon Dixie Kitchen & Bait Shop, which turned out to be TOTALLY ridiculously amazing in every way and now one of my Chi-City faves. They give you johnny cakes (pancakes that require no syrup for those unaware) for free, are awesome for all things southern and fried, and have pecan pie that might make you cry.

So I was totally stoked when I stumbled upon, in all its glory, then-Senator Barack Obama adorably food-reviewing this awesome joint on a local show called Check, Please!. Dig it!

They are going to play it on some radio station all the time now. And on inauguration day. I think this means everyone should eat johnny cakes that morning or something, which I'm totally cool with.
I kinda need fried chicken now.
