Checking In

I know, I know...I've been away from the blogging desk. I've been working on gathering emails for my high school class roster because our 40th (yes, 40th) reunion is coming up this July. And as I've mentioned before, I have just enough OCD to keep me going in that direction.

Summer has finally hit here in Houston. It's May 7th and the temperature outside is 91. That means we had approximately 4 weeks where eating outside was a possibility. With the heat comes the humidity, the flies and the mosquitoes. And it'll probably be in the 90's now until about late September or early October but the flies and mosquitoes won't die off until the first good freeze. The 90's also mean the A/C will be cranking pretty much 24/7 and we can all say good-bye to lower electric bills.

Okay, back to eating. Since I've been "away" I've visited the following:

-Beck's Prime (we went to the Sugar Land location)
-Dry Creek Cafe (Yale St. in the Heights, Houston)
-Lankford Grocery & Market (near downtown Houston)
-Lola's (Yale & 11th Street in the Heights)
-Branch Water Tavern (Montrose/South Shepherd area in Houston)
-Bob's Taco Station (Rosenberg, TX)
-Roznovsky's (near 610 Loop in Houston & my old stomping grounds)
-Barry's Pizza (Sugar Land location)
-Live Oak Grill (Sugar Land)

Have also been to Five Guys (a chain but a darn good burger), BJ's Brewhouse a couple of times (originated in California), Panera's, NY Pizzeria...and I'm sure there's more, much more.

Man, I'm so behind...look at that list! Adios for now. Gotta rest my fingers up.
