Simply Irresistible…


And delicious!

Newell took me to lunch out at the Salt Lick in Driftwood, Texas today. It is one of my very favorite restaurants, but since he is a vegetarian, we don’t go there often. Their brisket is to die for…just look at that cook pit!

I had the brisket and potato salad — I’m a meat and potatoes girl at heart — and my wonderful husband got stuck with potato salad and cold slaw because even the beans were cooked with pork. That is true love when someone has such limited choices and still takes you somewhere because you like to go.

        

Last of my Brisket…                                             …and at least Newell got Blackberry Cobbler.

It was a lovely ride in the country too…though we were riding on fumes when we found a gas station. The rain had stopped today, and it was warm and slightly breezy. A perfect afternoon. Even if we had forgotten to change the clocks last night.

Came home and did laundry and consulted my next door neighbor on how I should plant things in the yard this year. Actually going to try and landscape a bit.

Then this evening was my favorite night of television: Once Upon a Time, The Walking Dead, and GCB. I actually did some work in my Office while I watched — sorting old photos, putting my saved rejection letters in order, going through stacks of paper. I think I feel safe in counting an hour of productive time today. That makes this week’s accomplishments look a little less barren. 😉

DAILY WRAP UP: 30 Minutes Front Yard + 1 hour Office = 1 1/2 hours on Sunday! 🙂

    Too funny. I used to work at the Salt Lick when I was 14 years old. Went back there myself recently. LOVE that place!
