Cranky Franks BBQ – Fredericksburg, TX

Cajun French: le coteau (lu kō-tō) – hill

20150505_134200In the middle of the Texas Hill Country in German Fredericksburg, you can’t get much more German. We were searching for good German food which eluded us (maybe three years in Germany had something to do with not finding what we were looking for). But take heart, this was Texas. And in Texas you are never far from good BBQ! Then we see an ad for Cranky Frank’s BBQ.

Dos Salsas, Georgetown, TX

Cajun French: Samedi (som-dee) – Saturday


IMG_2838Our Saturday morning equation is breakfast out and a farmers market. Some mornings it is breakfast first and then shopping and other times it is reversed. The order does not matter, it is getting both accomplished that we look forward to.

Beaumont, TX Farmers Market

Cajun French:  le miel (lu mee-el) – honey

FlowersThe parking area was packed with police directing traffic and volunteers assisting in the parking lot.  The crowd was sometimes three deep and tables hard to see.  This was our introduction to the Beaumont Farmers Market.  In seeking out farmers markets as we RV around the country, Beaumont has an excellent start on a very active local farmers market.  We were impressed both with the produce offered and the local support.  Continue reading “Beaumont, TX Farmers Market”
