Texas Bar-B-Q

I am a huge fan of beef and bbq. Tim and I have been eating Mexican food mainly when we eat out, because I'm not sure how great the Mexican food will be in MN, so far away from the Mexico border. But I had to have some really good Texas bbq before leaving Texas too. Tim, Katelin and I all went out to eat at Big Jake's last night. It's a great place to eat, and it was nice to go there again since that was who catered for our rehearsal dinner. We ordered a family dinner of ribs which came with a whole loaf of bread, and we got some corn on the cob and some delicious potato salad.

Is it sad that Mexican food and BBQ are on the top of things that I will miss from Texas? I am stocked up on TexJoy, so I at least have my seasonings for cooking up in MN.


  1. Now Dana,
    Your going to another place, but you can BRING the BBQ to MN. You can host your own BBQ Youth Night's in your home!!!! (now that you have all your spices :O) But make sure your backyard is big enough for a Huge Pig Roast grill!! LOL
    Glad you'all had a nice time, we miss ya!!

  2. No, the sad part is that it's hard to get good mexican food anywhere north of Okc. Tulsa is borderline and further than that is almost impossible. You may get lucky though and we hope you do! You may also discover new types of food you haven't experienced. Minnesota has milk in a bag-which is Amanda's favorite unusual item. (at least to Okies!)

  3. I do enjoy cooking for lunch after church. It's easy when we have a crock-pot. I'm sure some people will get a taste of TexJoy. :)

    I haven't heard of milk-in-a-bag. I'll keep my eyes and ears open for that. I'm real picky when it comes to milk, so I don't know if I'll try it. I'm hoping we'll come across a great Mexican restaurant...we'll see.
