A meal fit for a previously Texan.

Faye and I paid a visit to Traylor Parker’s Real Texas BBQ. I had the Smoked Brisket Sandwich with Potato Salad and McCaunaghey’s (vinegar) Cole Slaw. Faye had the Smoked Turkey with Cornbread Stuffing Sandwich with Baked Beans and Creamy Cole Slaw and a side of Cranberry Compote.

Everything tasted much better than it may look. We will be back.

A very good meal.

We got take-out from a Jamaican place. On the left (from left), jerk chicken, rice and beans, coleslaw, pork rolls with a spicy dipping sauce. On the right (from left), the rise and beans, coleslaw, dipping sauce with the pork rolls, and curry goat. Delicious.

Oh and at bottom: Lucy expressing a desire to expand her culinary horizons.

Look at the bun.

Faye and I recently had lunch at Cowbell Brewing Company in Blyth. I ordered the Smokehouse Burger, with Bacon Potato Salad as my side. Neither disappointed, though the side would have been even better if it were served warm.

Look at the bun.

Dinner.

We recently travelled to Toronto for a weekend in the Big City. After delivering the dogs to our boarding kennel we rode VIA (the Canadian passenger train) and chose Business Class for the trip there. That meant we were treated to dinner – for me, cod in a tomato and caper sauce with green beans and potato wedges, an olive roll, skewered cheeses and cherry tomatoes, and strawberry slices with strawberry ‘squish’ topped by a mint leaf. All washed down with a glass of pleasant white wine.

What a civilized way to travel and so much less stressful than a three hour drive in the dark on very busy freeways.
