Today is National BBQ Day and I am sorry (not sorry) but I have to say hands down the best barbecue comes from right here in Texas. We all have our personal favorites but the people have spoken. I decided to go online to find out what the fine folks of Midland-Odessa say is their favorite barbecue right here in the 432.
I know we all have our favorites in just about any category you could throw out. Favorite place to grocery shop. Favorite place to get a mani/pedi, get your hair done, boutique, place to grab a sweet tea. I mean the possibilities are endless because we have a lot of good stuff here in Midland and Odessa. And where do many of our favorite places for this or that come from? For me, to be honest I as
If you were to ask all of your friends and family, people in your circle what their favorite food is, I'm guessing they would say pizza, hands down! I would definitely say that is how it is with my clan, myself included. Therefore we are always on the hunt, am I right? Who has the best pizza in the 432?
I would have to say right off the bat I am not a Chinese food connoisseur by any means. I know what I personally like and the places I go to frequently. Leo can give you the scoop. Leo knows his stuff because Chinese food is his favorite! However, I do have my go-to's in Midland and Odessa. Check out my list and see if you agree these are the best?
Be real most of us will choose a Mexican food restaurant simply because they have good chips and salsa. How many times have you been out to lunch or dinner with coworkers or friends and if someone mentions a certain restaurant, a person in the group quickly throws in, 'no they don't have good chips and salsa!' It happens all.the.time.
Not all fries are created equal. It is up to you how you like your fries. Extra salty, steak, thin, crispy, crinkle, no salt, ketchup, no ketchup? I will go for crinkle any day but sometimes I like to change it up. Thank goodness for the many options we have here in the 432 to satisfy my french fry taste buds.
IYKYK-Barbecue is HUGE in Texas. Like if you don't eat it once a week are you even a Texan? I don't know how many times I have tried to decide with my family, what are we going to eat for such and such meal? At the very least, once a week, someone will say, 'mmm, brisket sounds good!' And there we go, off to find some barbecue. However, it has to be said, you have to travel for some really good ba
Ok who is ready? I think this time of year we all start to get pretty anxious for football season! These Friday Night Lights will be lit real soon and the time cannot come soon enough for myself and for so many in the 432. There is something about the lights, the roaring of the crowd, the band wailing and of course the action on the field!
Where have you been my whole life? I tried some of the best chili I have literally ever had in my life over the weekend. (And trust, I never thought anyone could top my momma's chili) This is brisket chili. As the owner explained, they ground up their brisket where it looks like hamburger meat and thus the masterpiece you see here.
