Texas FOOD Overview
Man have I spent a lot of time in Texas over the past few weeks.
HOT AND HUMID. But, great people and fun times.
Austin twice and then Houston for a dear friend's wedding.
Anyone that complains about LA being large and in charge has to drive through Houston. The word "Sprawling" comes to mind.
All good things to report. Food First. A few good stores in a second post a little later today or tomorrow.
