Texas Eats


It's the middle of the night in Japan, and I am completely jet-lagged and hungry! What's a better thing to do than contemplate food? Tonight's special feature- Texas food.

Some of our culinary adventures in Texas include all these lovelies...

Hamburgers on the road from College Station to Abilene


Chicken Fried Steak and Coconut Pie on the road from Abilene to College Station. Can you believe I didn't even get the name of this place? I'm a little devastated by that as I sort of fell in love with that dessert...


Famous Chicken Oil restaurant in Aggieland... this is my kind of place. I love how the shack looks like it should be in an old movie about the wild wild west... the inside decor was really fun and of course, I had to eat another hamburger.






Beautiful fondant almond cupcake at Jen's Birthday party...

At a proper Southern ladies lunch hall, Victoria's in Huntsville, Alabama (where my family lives), cheesy chicken casserole plate and salad sampler plate.

Chicken casserole, homemade yeast bread, cranberry jello salad, and copper pennies (carrots marinated in a spicy sweet sauce)
Chicken salad, macaroni salad, pumpkin bread, homemade frozen strawberry yogurt salad

Back in Texas at a divey Mexican place on the side of a back road... Nothing better than a rainy day and Mexican food. I love Tex-mex restaurants each have their own personal recipe for salsa. Theirs was served warm!


Finally, a generous T-bone steak at the Longhorn Tavern. Oh, and a heaping portion of peach cobbler with Blue Bell ice cream too...



Okay, so needless to say, I gained 7 pounds while we were stateside. It's a perfect timing that I enrolled in a boot-camp fitness class starting Monday morning bright and early for 3 months!

Also, needless to say, I am no longer hungry, but ravenous, so it's time to fix a little comforting nighttime snack. Should it be the cream puffs or the potato casserole? Hmmm...

What's your favorite thing to eat in the middle of the night?

The food looks terrible for you but so good at the same time :)

Anil,
I know, it's one of the great tragedies of life! Why can't feel good food be healthy too?

Crisps are my downfall...not just in the middle of the night, but anytime, really.

NB - translation note - I think they're "chips" in US speak.

Salty, crispy, loveliness...mmmm
