Hill Country Style

I love the Texas Hill Country in the fall. The change of seasons are not are noticeable in town, but once you leave the city of San Antonio and head to the rolling county sides, the colors of the falling leaves are in full swing.

One of my favorite Hill Country towns is Fredrickburg. I have always loved to visit and love all of the German style architecture, not to forget the German food.

Today while looking for pictures to post, I found my Hill Country Dream House. Just a cool $3,200,000.

Friday Night Lights

I can’t believe that our football season is already over and we have completed our first nine weeks of school. I must confess our football team didn’t win a lot of games, actually they only won two games, but the kids always played a good game. I am always amazed at how a sport teaches some of the best life lessons that we carry with us for the rest of our lives.

Thanksgiving Dinner

My Mom decided after last year’s family fiasco that she has sworn off making Thanksgiving Dinners. Therefore, everyone has decided to come to my house here in San Antonio. At first I was excited. Then reality has set in. I think that it dawned on me last night that I have no clue how to make the traditional turkey and dressing dinner. It is times like these that I wish my grandmother were still here.
She was the total Southern Belle. I can still remember her famous brunch meals when I was a child. She would be in the kitchen for hours making all of our southern favorites, homemade biscuits and red eye gravy, fried chicken, salt bacon, bacon, eggs, you name it, it was there. You would be so full that you just had to take a nap after wards. Thanksgivings were a lot of the same, but with a Bloody Mary’s before the meal . Oh, and a turkey!
Don’t get me wrong, I know that this is an opportunity to start my own traditions, to form my own memories with my family, I guess it is the fear of the new, the failed dressing or the burned turkey. But there is also the fear that if it is too good, I might get stuck doing it every year!

For now I am off to look at table ideas. Here are just a few.
