Because Kelli and I went to Austin for our Girls' Trip this year and WOW does that town have some delicious BBQ.
|So it just looks like a pile of meat. BUT IT TASTES LIKE HEAVEN SO CAN IT.|
Not that I'm cheating on Kansas City, home of my beloved Bubba and Jack Stack - maker of the finest burnt ends a woman/man/rabid monkey on a bender could possibly want - but lord knows I do love Rudy's.
|Also, I got to introduce Kelli to the concept of ordering food by the pound. Good times.|
And I will put that on the record - my favorite BBQ in Texas is Rudy's.
|Call it The Worst all you want, Rudy's people, we all know the truth. Also - cattle prod.|
Though the guy from whom we rented bikes thought that was ridiculous, apparently.
|His dog, however, did not judge me for my favorites. Good puppy.|
I do so love it when someone asks you what your favorite *anything* is and then proceeds to immediately discredit you as though you're some sort of retard.
Because you couldn't possibly be trusted to know what your favorite things are. No - that is for others to know and for you to feel incompetent about.
Please, hippie man, tell ME what *I* like because I have no idea.
Anyway, enough of my ranting. Austin was delicious and also rad.
|Although, mainly delicious.|
|The ice cream...uh...melted before I could get a photo.|
|How perfect does this burger look? Not as perfect as it tasted, FYI.|
|Highly recommend The Snack Bar, if only for the fact that they have flash-fried Brussels Sprouts.|
|Oh - also, you can get a Shandy. Divine.|
|Black's Barbeque in Lockheart - worth the drive. Also, that's banana pudding with Nilla Wafers, not eggs.|
And chat and chat and chat and chat.
Once a year we spend four days together and LO it is a busy chattery time. I doubt anyone could stand to be within earshot of us the entire time.
It's divine. For us. Less so for anyone who has to listen to it I imagine.
I feel all caught up now. And also full.
