"DINERS, DRIVE-INS, AND DIVES"..................
OK......... what is a cross country trip if you are not constantly figuring out where your next meal will be? Sweet hubby and I are no different. We have managed to stop in some sweet little, if not caloric laden, places along this wonderful trip thru Texas.
This is the wonderful BLUE BONNET CAFE, which is an institution in the wonderful little town of Marble Falls, Texas. It has been here 81 years and they are famous for guess what????? You guessed it!!!! PIE
Have you ever seen such a beautiful thing??? These pies are the Mt. Rainier of pies!!!!
The pies must be l2" high, I didn't have my trusty tape measure so I couldn't verify my guess. (O: (O:
The two biggest ones are chocolate cream and lemon, we had neither,
opting for the wonderful coconut cream and banana cream!!!yummmmmmmmm
And if that isn't enough they are also noted for their Chicken Fried Steak.
I think there must be more Chicken Fried Steak in Texas than anywhere else on the planet
Another little funky place we passed along the way.....the sign made me smile!!
And, if that weren't enough...........
Oh, lest I forget, BAR-B-QUE. We drove all the way to Llano, to see this little beauty.
Now.,.......there are also some sweet little antique shops in Llano, and I did do a little bit of looking and shopping, but we mostly went there to EAT!!!!
Even took some take-out for the next day!! All the locals filled us in on how to make it and what sauce to use with what.
No, this isn't an add for the Food Network (O: (O: but part of the fun of traveling is eating in little places and having great stories to share
I need to close now and make sure I have enough Gavisacon
for the rest of the trip. HAAAAA!!!!!HAAAAAAAA!!!
Want to apologize for not visiting each of you as much as normal, we have limited WI-FI service on this coach and it makes it a little difficult for me to always have dependable inter-net service.
