What I Ate: turkey burger with sweet potato fries at TruFire in Colleyville. So delicious. Their house made ketchup was almost better than my favorite (whataburger ketchup).


Photo of the Day: a collector’s button I got at the State Fair of Texas! I’ve been going to this fair since before I can remember. The school district would give us free tickets and a day off of school to go! Look for a post later with some sweet food pictures.


Photo of the Day: Snapped this at Third Monday Trade Days in McKinney. I love these marquee letters and wished I could have bought them all! Someday…


Love my home state!


Delicious cupcakes from Sugar Queen!

My life



my car failed Texas inspection.


So, I’m spending another night in Texas.

Which throws off pretty much my whole weekly schedule.


I have a cold.

The drama queen is off to blow her nose and edit some video.

Redneck Spaghetti


…is what I had for dinner last night!

Too hungry, no pictures. (Is that the food blogger’s form of tl;dr?)

(‘too long; didn’t read’ for the uninitiated)

Redneck spaghetti probably goes against everything Italian food stands for. Except deliciousness.

Its politically correct name is “chicken spaghetti”, and the chicken is probably the only redeeming quality as far as health that this dish has. I mean, it’s ingredients include mass amounts of cheddar cheese, noodles, and a can of Rotel. (Please tell me you guys know the wonders of Rotel + Velveeta + ground beef queso? It better not be a Texas thing. The whole world needs to know about this guilty, guilty pleasure.) It’s basically queso with chicken and noodles. And some olives and onion.

And it was served with huge hunks of bread with more cheese melted on top. And I had feta cheese on my salad (like 3 spoonfuls). I’ve definitely got my calcium for the next 5 years…

Anywho, find a recipe and make redneck spaghetti when you’ve been freshly fired or dumped (or you found out that Nora Ephron died, WHAT THE HECK, so sad). It’s Southern comfort food at it’s best.

(For real, my grandmother was talking about how many funerals she’s been to where this was a main attraction.)

Bon appetit!

God bless Texas.


I’m home! Finally back in the 972/214/469. Time to lay on the couch, watch some trash tv and cuddle with my dog. Can I get an amen?!

Unfortunately, because I have no brains, I left my computer charger at school, in my boyfriend’s apartment. So…no extensive blogging until this weekend, when I can drive back to Nompton to get it. Until then, PictureFest!
