While I don’t have a kitchen for the next two weeks, I’ve been eating well while on the road. For instance, my first bite after returning was the famous chips and salsa at Ninfa’s on Navigation:
The next morning, I stopped by Frank’s Grill in Houston and had this balanced breakfast of chicken-fried steak, fried eggs, potatoes, grits, biscuits, and gravy:
I then went to Central Market, where I saw these fresh picked beauties on display:
And then there was these tubs of local flavor, which made me search for the nearest spoon:
Though as much as I miss the food, I also miss that big Texas sky and always like to take a few moments just to tilt my head and stare at those beautiful clouds.
