Photo Friday, a Feast for the Eyes, Mouth, and Soul



If you are ever in Castroville Texas.....eat here. We were 3 1/2 hours into our drive, on our way to visit my son Lee. We left our little dog home this time so we were actually able to go inside a restaurant to eat. It is always fun to leave the main road and look around the town square when you travel. We found a gorgeous restaurant on the edge of the block.
My meal: a grilled pork chop, green beans with garlic, sweet carrots, roasted potatoes, brown gravy and a homemade roll with real butter.

 We didn't see the restaurant at first because it looked more like an antique store in a restored house. Isn't it pretty?
 Here's a clue!
 We were seated and a beautiful cat came to sit outside our window.
 The view was wonderful through the other window too.
 Each room in the house contained small, private tables. Little lap blankets were placed on each chair. We sat by this fireplace.
The entrance hallway is in the center of the house. The door leads to the kitchen.

We were hungry and a bit tired. This wonderful food, served in such an inviting atmosphere refreshed us....and nourished us in more ways than one. It was an unexpected experience in this small town, almost in the middle of nowhere.

Looks wonderful ... and yummy. How come we didn't get a pic of Uncle Mike's food? What'd he have to eat??

I think you have such a interesting blog. I am a new reader - and I liked what I saw. These cookies were delicius. I could smell these even so far as to Finland. And all of your food (which you have captured by camera) looked sooo good... I am hungry now!!! I keep blog too- here in Finland - it's about home (interior decoration and about many other things) where angels are welcome .... and people too of course.
I am 40-year old woman, and I have one adult child.
