Texas BBQ

We discovered a new BBQ place called Texas BBQ.  It is true to form of the service station BBQ joints you find in Texas, however, it is not in an old service station building.  It’s over in the RIT bookstore plaza in Henrietta.

The portions are generous, the food is tasty, and the place is clean. The prices are reasonable too.  I had the 2-meat combo and Elizabethe had their huge, loaded, baked potato plus our 2 drinks and tax came to $30.

Dim Sum After 1pm

I learned in San Francisco’s Chinatown that dim sum is breakfast food.  As the Chinese lady at Dick Lee’s Pastries explained, “Dim sum breakfast food.  Like Chinese donuts.”

We stopped at the Asian Market to see if they had sesame balls.  They were sold out.

Glen’s Off

Glen’s off to California after spending almost a week here.  We had a great time together.  I told him to plan on spending more time the next time he comes here.

Vertigo

We came home and I took a rest.  I got up this morning and experienced a bit of vertigo (twice).  It’s the only time in my life this has happened, so I’m taking things really slow today.  It only happened when I got out of bed.  (First, when I got off the bed, and second whey I took about 6 steps towards the bathroom.  I may have just got up too quickly.)

I’ll be carefully watching my blood pressure and what I eat and drink.  While I think it might be related to my SHL (Sudden Hearing Loss) casual about this stuff.  I was fine the rest of the day, but a little cautious about how quickly I’d stand up.  (And, to think Elizabethe has dealt with this sort of stuff her entire life.)

 

Texas BBQ

Texas BBQ

One of the nice things about visiting Texas is Texas BBQ.  Texas BBQ is based on slow smoking the meat to infuse it with the smoke flavor and tenderize it.

Spencer and Jennifer took us to a local BBQ place that, like a lot of the one’s I’ve been to in Texas, was typical of the no-thrills places that concentrates on their BBQ.  I had pork ribs and beef brisket.  It was very good.  (Not quite as good as Texas BBQ in Pleasant Hill, California, but still pretty good.)

We spent a good portion of the day watching the grandchildren play with their ducklings.  Spencer bought a chicken coop and put it together for the ducks.  (We joked about how they probably won’t use the roosting rods inside the coop.)

When I asked their names, Spencer said, “Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner”.

I suggested, “Orange, Smoked and Crispy”, but the grandchildren like, “Huey, Dewey and Louis”, the best.
