"What do you want for dinner? I need something picturesque; I'm supposed to take a photo for the picture challenge."
"Brisket! Brisket tacos."
"What, to make Breda jealous?"
And so, I ran with it:
(I'm not one of those people who complains about all the store-brand stuff HEB sells.)
It occurs to me, belatedly, that Borepatch is quite fond of brisket as well. Perhaps I'll have to pack some in dry ice and ship it to him once he's back in ATL.
And I know the picture was just supposed to be dinner, but here's dessert (I actually don't eat much dessert; plenty of sweets, but few desserts):
One of the selling points of Bluebell is that they are "still 1/2 a gallon!" I'd rather pay $5.75 or $6 for a half-gallon of Bluebell than deal with the grocery shrink ray Edy's got hit with. (I think Edy's ice cream is about half air these days anyway. Tastes like it.)
This is "chocolate covered strawberries." It does indeed involve chocolate, and strawberries, but for some reason not actual chocolate covered strawberries. Dunno why I'd think to find that in the ice cream, right? It's a minor 'plaint, though, because the stuff is just as good as you'd think. My favorite from them, though, is their coffee flavor.
