Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of take-home meals and baked goods at Miss K Bistro and Catering, in Port Aransas.
The fresh-fare-minded chefs at Miss K craft a collection of carryout casseroles and sweets to augment the menu of home-style eats. Heat-and-serve to-go casseroles fuel two to three stomach tanks, replenishing low stores of meat, cheese, and veggies ($9.99 each). Fanchone's meat lasagna corrals sauce, noodles, cheese, protein, and gumption into a single pan, empowering eaters to assert forks into noodle flesh without batting an eye. While spinach steals the spotlight in the spinach lasagna, beef-noodle stroganoff and cheesy meatloaf provide precooked hamburger helpings to hapless cooks. The french silk pie swaddles tongues in sweetness ($4.99/slice, $24.99/whole), and specialty desserts such as the Naughty caramel brownies disobey diets with morsels of caramel and duplicitous dollops of double chocolate ($3.99). Within the eatery's periwinkle-painted edifice, a three-tiered dessert case provides a panorama of sweets to ogle or oil paint, including cakes, pies, and cookies.
