They call it the Hill Country

In Honky Tonk/ Food on 11/16/2009 at 4:20 pm

Cruised up to the hill country this weekend for porch sitting and honky tonking.  Drank some Lone Star Light, people-watched at the Sean Reefer and the Resin Valley Boys show and sat at the drunk table at Arkey Blue’s Silver Dollar Saloon.  The sawdust was fresh at Arkey’s and a good range of tourists and locals were in the mix.  I consider myself a little in between since this area is a second home to me but I know very few people.

Usually weekends such as these are junk food-o-ramas but I restrained myself to only queso, dark chocolate orange cookies and flaming hot lime cheetos with bean dip.  And reduced fat cheese nips.  And cowboy stew with cornbread.  Marie Callender’s cornbread mix, of which I can not speak highly enough.  It was deliciously crumbly with a cake like taste.  The production process does not require eggs or milk, only water, making it the delicious default.

Fun and completely unrelated fact:  Apple seeds contain cyanide.
