Friday Favorites

Some food-related (mostly) things we enjoyed this week:

Astros win!

 We fulfilled our Labor Day tradition again this year with a trip to Houston to attend a couple of baseball games with my parents. The Astros actually won (!), Dan got to annoy me play with a foam finger, and a good time was had by all. With the daily news too often reminding us that life is short, we are grateful for rituals like these that involve spending precious time with people we love. Here’s to many more!

Walker Bros.

 We finally made it to the highly-recommended Walker Bros. for breakfast, and it did not disappoint. It’s not called The Original Pancake House for nothing—their pancakes were some of the best we’ve ever had—and we understand why nearly every weekend, there’s an out-the-door line of people waiting to eat there. A bonus for us, in addition to the delicious all-American breakfast fare, was the diner-style atmosphere with cutely kitsch decor that fondly reminded us of this place near Dan’s hometown.

Two of our favorite things

Even though the calendar says September, kids are back in school, and football season has begun, we’re not quite done with summer. Take-out fried chicken at the beach was a wonderful way to spend a sunny afternoon the Tuesday after Labor Day. We’re hoping it wasn’t our final beach day of the year, but if it was, it was perfect.
