Sunday Brunch at Pecan Street Station; Good Choice…

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I wanted breakfast, but I didn’t want to cook. The kitchen was configured for jelly production, and it just seemed like too much work to rearrange, get out all the starters and then make the breakfast I wanted.

It was going on mid-morning too.

PJ was toodling around […]

I Didn’t Know Sichuan, China Included Round Rock

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I often eat lunch at home, but every now and again I find myself “out and about” running errands and such just about the time the alarm goes off. The one in my middle, I mean. Years of working in the chemical industry taught me to […]

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Some days you get to travel internationally and never have to leave home…

Casa G’s for Lunch (Hint: It’s Awesome)

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I was out efforting some errands (I like that strange verb) and found myself up the freeway beyond my usual traveling space. I knew I wouldn’t get home in time to eat leftovers and still make my afternoon appointment, so I reluctantly caved to schedule pressure […]

Two-Steppin’ Country Music and Texas-Style Dinner in Belmont

Sometimes you come across a novel place way out in the country. (Or maybe, if you’re lucky, your friends find the place for you.) We’re not talking about fancy places in this category. But maybe the kind of food you grew up on. Comforting stuff, like chicken-fried steak, or frog legs; you know what […]
