Medic alert

Lard. Re-fried beans. Tortilla strips. Jalapenos. Scrambled eggs. Onions. Hot sauce. More hot sauce. More lard.

Can you tell? We’re back in Texas.

After crossing the Oklahoma line, we stopped at the first WHATABURGER that the GPS could find. For nearly two years, we had been without.

Once we got to Austin, the menu included BBQ (brisket, short ribs, and chicken, oh my). Add in piles of Tex-Mex, migas, top-chopped, Blue Bell ice cream and Shiner Bock.

In a casserole, I think. I don’t rightly remember. Nothing against the Minnesota hot dish. But this is soul food.

Repeat often. Aids the digestion and soothes the naps.

Welcome back. That great food is no longer on my diet. Unfortunately.

But I am 25 lbs lighter than a year ago.

I'm glad you're back home, George, and look forward to seeing you as soon as time permits.

Now you can quit writing about the frigid weather and start writing about the soul of Austin the way you captured Minneapolis.

After so much time on Facebook, I keep looking for the 'LIKE' button on BoA. We are sooo glad you are to this part of your homes. Texas is left again!

Dang, that all sounds really good. Off I go to my fridge to see if there are any jalapenos left for my eggs.
