The first leg of vacation my husband and I spent in hot, hot Palm Springs. The best way to escape the heat was to duck in and out of stores, movie theaters and restaurants. I must say the sunrise and sunsets in the desert paint the landscape in beautiful pinks and oranges, nearly making it worth the heat. Another thing I was thankful for was that this desert heat was very dry. Once out of direct sunlight, the air was considerably cooler.
Babe's which is a Bar-B-Que and Brewhouse. We had been here before with friends a few years back on Christmas Eve so we knew what to order this time and let me tell you, our taste buds were in heaven!
To start we ordered barbecued chicken thighs that were oh-so-moist, served on a southwestern rice pilaf. That, plus the enormous caesar salad we shared, made us glad we had decided to share the entree. We ordered the St. Louis ribs and short ribs combo which was served with two sides of our choice: sweet potato fries and half a baked yam covered in honey butter. I'm hungry just remembering it all.
