Tuesday . . .

We left the park this morning about 8:15 heading down to Clear Lake. Unfortunately our timing took us through some of the heaviest Houston traffic, but we made up for it by having lunch at Twin Peaks after the appointment. And this time our favorite waitress, Lauren, was there.

Jan got her usual Chicken Ranch Sandwich with the Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce, while I tried something new, the BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders, and of course, my usual Venison Chili.

The sliders were really good, especially the tart slaw on top. The only weakness was that the BBQ sauce could have been a little spicier. But then that’s just me. I think pretty much everything could be spicier.

After a delicious lunch, we did a few errands, including stopping at the storeroom to drop off the floor dolly that I used for the washer repair last week, and then getting the truck washed at our favorite place.

Next up was a stop at Buc-ee’s for some of their great Cranberry Nut muffins and a couple of coffee/cappuccinos, and then on to Barnes & Noble, for a magazine Jan wanted.

After a quick Wal-Mart stop, we headed up to Katy to Brandi’s to pick up my new Fantastic Vent fan, and an Amazon package that had come in. And of course, our visit had to include dinner at Little V’s Vietnamese Bistro.

As a special surprise, Brandi’s BFF, Shawna and some of her family, were able to join us. Brandi and Shawna have been best friends since the early 90’s, before either of them were married, and with Brandi and Lowell’s move to Katy, they now only live a couple of miles apart.

Some of us had a little something different this time. Jan had the Fresh Pan Grilled Tilapia, and Brandi had the Crispy Salmon, while Lowell and I stayed with our favorites, Pho, and Shaking Beef Bowl, respectively.

Why mess with perfection.

While last time the owner had us try the Grilled Artichoke Hearts, this time it was the Curried Prawns. And this coconut curry was probably the best I’ve every tasted. Along with the huge prawns, the dish had onions, green peppers, red peppers, and broccoli, plus steamed rice. A really fantastic dish.

When it came to dessert, we were disappointed to find out that they were out of  Crème Brulee, but this Crispy Fried Banana and Walnuts dish, more than made up for it. The perfect end to another great meal.

Finally, about 7:30, after saying our goodbyes, and getting Landon hugs, we headed north to Conroe, getting home about 9pm

A long day.

Tomorrow, fan replacement on the roof.

  2. Janice,

    Actually I don’t mind heights. In fact I like them.

    Of course I say that now, until I fall off.
