I had to hit the 'burbs this weekend for the Katy Budget Books Semi-Annual Sale in Katy, Texas. Dolla books make me holla, y'all. Brother's Pizzeria though makes me squee! And, since I rarely see The Chapa anymore, I made him meet there for lunch after I scarfed up some books at the book sale.
However, the spaghetti with meatballs, with it's chunky, fresh, not too sweet marinara is amazing. It's a simple sauce but it's delicious. I woofed it all down. Ok, not really, but I came close. They offer kid's meals now so, next time, I will have to do that so I can eat more pizza. Holla!
Sunday consisted of our usual House of Pies visit and try as I might, I continue to choose the Waffle Platter. I rarely finish it
For Sunday dinner, it was made up of rice, beans and fajitas. I used old reliable corn tortillas to make tacos while the BNC used Romaine lettuce to make his. Whack.
My rice was perfect this time and I used part of my last batch of frozen beans. As for the fajitas, or skirt steak, I cooked them with some sweet onions. When they were almost done, I added a touch of tomato paste, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes for that slight kick to the teeth that you sometimes need until you bite down on a tiny fleck, cause you're lucky like that, and you vow to start using the SMIDGEN measuring rather than DASH.
Good stuff. Good weekend.
