Welcome to another addition of Texas Tuesday!
This week we are talking about TEXAS food!
(Hey the State Fair is right around the corner)
One thing Texas is known for is food, maybe why me and so many others are overweight!
A staple of Texas is one drink in particular. We went to Dublin, TX last summer to visit the Dublin Dr. Pepper bottling plant and I'm glad we did since Dr Pepper took it away for Dublin.
If it' wasn't for my frequent kidney stones, I would drink Dr Pepper every day.
Everyone in my family LOVES DP. Even when my Nanny was in hospice, she asked for a Texas staple, Dr. Pepper.
Another Texas staple is something I can't make to save my life, Pecan Pie.
Now make sure you say it right because it's not PEE CAN pie,
It's PA CON pie. If you live in Texas it's essential you say this correctly.
Now I am a baker but you have to be a real Texan to make GOOD pecan pie and for me,
I just haven't found a recipe that lives up to my Nanny's pie.
Y'all know everything is bigger in Texas and in Amarillo, Texas, you can order a 72 oz. Steak......yes folks, 72 oz.
If you can manage to eat this Bad Boy and all the fixings, you get it FREE!
Just the thought of that much red meat makes me want to run for the hills.
Being that we are talking about BIG Texas Food, how about this bad boy:
Texas Toast is GIANT bread, great for grilled cheese sandwiches, oven bread, toast and you can even get Texas Toast instead of hamburger buns at WhatABurger, another Texas staple.
Lastly, one of my favorites:
We're having this for dinner!
