don’t mess with Texas

I’m currently waiting in the San Antonio airport for my flight to Atlanta. I had such a great trip–a huge thank-you to Silas for arranging everything!

Here’s the rest of the trip:

Heather and I headed out Saturday morning off on our own with plans to get a hotel and schedule some spa appointments.
Our first stop was the Magnolia Pancake House, a famous breakfast place around here and a feature on Guy Fieri’s Diner’s, Drive-Ins and Dives. We split an omelet and the apple cinnamon pancakes with hash browns-amazing!

We spent the rest of the day stopping by Central Market, an awesome grocery store here where I picked up some homemade tortillas, tortilla chips and chile- and margarita- flavored dark chocolate, as well as getting manicures and pedicures.
We headed to Salt Lick, a well-known BBQ place here also featured I the Food Network. We sampled their wine at the tasting room while waiting for our table.

After splitting ribs, brisket, sausage and cobbler we headed to Gruene Historical District where we were staying. We went out that night to Gruene Hall, the longest running dance hall inTexas, to listen to some music before heading back to our room for wine and cheese, goodies we found at central market.

Oops! Plane is boarding! Will continue Texas highlights later…
