Saturday was a little insane, food-wise, at least when I put it down on paper. I didn't end the day feeling like I ate all that much, though. On Sunday we were pretty lazy, but we did take a family walk with the camera so I could take pictures of things besides the cat. Those pictures will be mixed in with our day Saturday.
It was sunny and in the 70s, so we went to a nearby lake.
Some kids drew all along the path we walked on.
After breakfast, we made our way down to another Houston suburb to have lunch at Killen's BBQ. We got there early, grabbed a number to secure our place in line, and then wandered around a nearby Walmart to kill time. We got back before the doors opened and got through the line really fast. I got some of my favorite creamed corn, but the corn was overcooked and the turkey wasn't as perfect as it normally is. The brisket was good, though, and the burnt ends special that Andrew ordered was fantastic. Maybe it was just an off day. For the record, I took about half of my meat home.
After lunch, we made the long drive to our old suburb because I really like the mall out there (it has a lot of outlets). I found lots of casual stuff, but none of the work stuff I was looking for. We made a quick drive past our old house, then went to my beloved Costco. Our membership ends next month and since there isn't one nearby, we aren't going to renew. This kills me! Apparently if someone buys you a gift card, you can shop without a membership, so I'll likely try that when I need a fix. I was way too excited to leave with 30 rolls of toilet paper.
I love this short trail that runs through our neighborhood.
We had to go to the drive-thru of our favorite bakery while we were in the area to grab a snack for later (cupcake for me, cookie for Andrew). Andrew was in search of a beer and he thought this empanada place we used to love might have it. They didn't, but by this time we were ready for a snack, so we had an empanada. We headed toward our house, then decided to stop at Half Price Books to look for records (total bust) and then ended up making a long detour to get back to our part of town. A place near our house was supposed to have the beer he wanted, so we stopped in. They didn't, so he settled for another beer and I got a glass of wine. As a plus, the place was pretty cute so we'll likely be back.
He realized he wasn't the star of the photos so he jumped up to make sure I was paying attention.
After a stop at one more store (for more wine), we finally went home to have our lunch leftovers for dinner. It was a good day. Maybe now people will believe me when I say I'm willing to travel for food...
