Continuing the Deep in the Heart of Texas series...
After the Food Conference was over, we checked out of our hotel in San Antonio and headed south to our friends' home, the very hospitable E family, where we had been invited to spend a couple of nights.
It was very interesting seeing the Texas countryside and getting a feel for the area. Here's one typical scene we saw away from the city, and I asked Tom to stop so I could get a picture:
We traveled down many different country roads and finally reached our friend Erich's and his family's home (below). I especially loved seeing all the Texas decorations--inside and outside their home!After we arrived we talked with our new friends, the Wahlquists, who were also visiting. Here's Sarah talking with Beth (our friend Erich's fiance) and her mom:Sarah and Beth:Some of the guys talked in the yard and got acquainted as we waited for the E family to arrive home from the conference: Mexican Haystacks was a perfect choice to feed a crowd. Here's the lineup of folks filling their plates:Edited to include a picture and instructions for Mexican Haystacks:
Add: pinto beans, chili, guacamole, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream.
Some people add: cucumbers, raisins, pineapple, and olives.
And the guys waiting their turn..."ladies first!"Seated around the table: Erich's parents to the left talking to another guest, but I can't recall the name; Erich; Beth and her mom; Tom and Deb; and Hannah. Below: the L family from New Mexico had also arrived after the conference and spent the night before they headed back home. We were able to get acquainted with yet another new family. Our friends were very accommodating and hospitable, hosting three different families during and after the conference. Thank you again, E family!
