A “REAL TEXAS BARBECUE” LUNCH MADE US SKIP BOTH BREAKFAST AND DINNER

IMG_2567

Elizabeth and I normally don’t eat lunch. Or, if on very rare occasions we do, then we skip breakfast. Today, however, we had the kind of a lunch that made us skip both breakfast and dinner. A first, for both of us… 🙂

What happened?

This morning, Elizabeth had to go to an appointment. It was all the way down in Gilbert. That’s about 30 miles south of Eagle’s Nest in North Scottsdale. To make the “out of town” trip worthwhile for me, she invited me to join her afterward for a real Texas barbecue – at Rudy’s Barbecue & Country Store in Chandler.  That’s another 16 miles farther south from Gilbert.

“Better be good,” I thought. “I am joining you against my better judgment,” I told her.

Well, it was worth it.  It was better than good. Which is why we are also skipping dinner tonight. 🙂

Elizabeth said she got to know this typical cowboy restaurant from the time she lived in San Antonio in the early 1970s. She is originally from Corpus Christi, but also spent some of her early years near the Alamo.  In other words, she know what “real Texas” really means. 🙂

ALTZAR’S DAY AS “COWBOY”

It was my first “real Texas barbecue” at Rudy’s.  So I felt I had to dress the part – as a cowboy. Besides, I’ve only worn my “new” cowboy boots twice in Maui and NEVER before today here in Arizona.

I told Elizabeth these boots are made for riding, not walking. The high heels made me feel as if I was wearing some stiletto shoes. Like a fashion model, I had to learn to walk all over again. 🙂
