A quick weekend getaway to Houston to see family also meant indulging in the finest local grub Texas had to offer.
We sampled everything from succulent, unpretentious BBQ at backcountry, folding-chair decorated barbecue joint, Rudy’s to sinfully baked fresh bread and juicy Angus steaks at Taste of Texas, Mexican-inspired chow at Escalante’s, and Italian gelato at Paciugo’s Gelateria.
Here are some of our favorite shots…

Sticky, fork-breaking pecan pie
First time encounter with a “buttermilk” pie. Tastes just like butter and milk.
Grilled vegetables that almost had me contemplating becoming a vegan.
Best crab and shrimp enchilada ever. Don’t care if the shot doesn’t do it justice. It was on cheesy point.
Tres leches – The dessert of the Mayan gods.
That black cherry gelato had my name all over it. I had to pay homage with two separate visits in three days.
And finally, 16 ounces of pure unadulterated bliss.
