Rib at Snow’s BBQ

IMG_7935.JPG

Oh yeah, this rib tasted as good as it looks. This was from an early Saturday morning run to Snow’s BBQ in Lexington, Texas. Snow’s was once proclaimed the #1 BBQ joint in Texas by Texas Monthly magazine.

This place only opens Saturday mornings at 8 AM and only stays open until the meat runs out. That usually happens before noon. That means, barbecue for breakfast. It’s not as bad as it sounds. I usually eat a little bit there and take a whole bunch home. Anyway, on this day the TV Food Network was filming for a TV show. Unfortunately, I don’t know which show.

Dover Sole

My wife came through big on dinner Wednesday night. She prepared some wild-caught Dover sole (a mild white fish) stuffed with artichoke hearts, asparagus, squash, red peppers and butter. It was topped with lemon slices, wrapped in parchment paper and steamed in its own juices in the oven. She served it with white rice and asparagus spears that she sautéed in EVOO with fresh garlic.

The weather was nice, so I fired up the grill.

Buffalo Chicken Po Boy

A Buffalo Chicken Po Boy from Turf N’ Surf in Austin, Texas. Very pricey for the casual nature of this food stand (you order from a window on the sidewalk) but the food has never disappointed. I’ve eaten there a few times now. Always a great meal. This was my first foray into the “turf” part of their menu.

Veggie Kabobs

Grilled up some veggies recently. Kept it simple. I sprayed some EVOO on them, ground some sea salt and pepper and sprinkled some Balsamic vinegar on them. Delish.

Asian Seared Tuna Salad

Asian seared tuna salad from Galaxy Cafe in Austin, Texas.  Sesame crusted, wild-caught, medium rare tuna steak over a bed of mixed field greens with cucumber, edamame, crispy vermicelli rice noodles & a side of sesame soy vinaigrette.

Did you miss me?  I took a break.  My apologies to my newest follower, Pratik.

Lunch at La Traviata Italian Bistro in downtown Austin, Texas.  I love most any kind of pasta alla puttanesca.
