On Friday, we met up with everyone at the famous Gristmill overlooking the Guadalupe river. If you are ever in those parts you HAVE to stop at The Gristmill and have a chicken fried steak and a Shiner Bock. HAVE to.
The only thing better than the food and atmosphere were our dear friends that we've missed so much since our move to San Antonio.
On Saturday we drove to Wimberley and piddled around the local shops that this sweet little town is brimming with. We picked up some raspberry chipotle salsa, jalapeno mustard and Mildly Wild bbq sauce...all from local Texas vendors. We also bought a mason jar full of Praline Pecan Honey Butter...oh. my. word. This deliciousness on a biscuit will melt in your mouth!!!
After an afternoon of shopping we drove out to Driftwood for some world famous (I don't know for sure if it is world famous, but it should be) Salt Lick Barbecue. It is a Texas landmark and is some of the best bbq you will ever taste!!!
Just look at the pit! My recommendation is the sampler platter with sausage, brisket and ribs...yum!
Enjoying a beautiful central Texas 60 degree day and licking our chops thinking about the amazing bbq we are about to gorge on.
Next on list was to see Stoney LaRue at the legendary Gruene Hall. It was built in the 1880's and is the oldest dance hall in Texas. This place is full of true Texas charm and you can't help but feel all warm and fuzzy when you're drinking Lone Star, listening to some great music and hundred year old wood floors are creaking beneath your feet.
