Eat, Drink and be Merry!

This day is a journey , this very moment is an adventure. Rebecca Pavlenko

We all need food to survive so it only makes sense that food would be a vital component of our journey. In our old 9 to 5 life that meant cooking and lots of it. Don’t worry we will return to that but with the combination of long hours, hard labor and some pretty crappy weather recently we found ourselves eating out far more than we ever have in the past. I have enjoyed finding local culinary delights and thankfully the workout that Amazon supplied didn’t cause my waistline to suffer from too many orders of pasta, pizza and fries.

Hands down our favorite restaurant was Big Joe’s Pizza and Pasta in Haslet, Texas. We quickly shared our find with neighbors and coworkers so it wasn’t long before you would run into each other there, send teasing photos of your dinner or get jealous at lunch when someone had leftovers. Chicken fettuccine Alfredo will just never be the same, I’m glad I found you but no other can compare.

Another favorite was Rooster’s Roadhouse in Decatur, Texas, they had amazing burgers, chips, and banana pudding how can you go wrong with that combination.

In Denton, Texas we found a great watering hole at East Side Denton, complete with food trucks, we also enjoyed the scenery as we strolled around the charming downtown. East Side Denton had over 80 taps with the majority of them being from Texas. One of these beers was from Austin and we can’t wait to go to the brewery to sample Metamodern Session IPA straight from the tap at Oasis Texas Brewing Company.


In Fort Worth we worked up an appetite doing a little shopping for the birthday boy, we lucked out and found Blue Mesa Grill in the same shopping center. Jamie had the chicken, avocado, and bacon wrap with the painted dessert soup which was two soups in one, black bean and corn chili chowder. I had the steak street taco with the chicken mini-adobe pie (chicken, cheese and roasted peppers baked in a dome of corn masa, topped with three chile and chipotle cream sauces).
