Saturday is our regular night to eat out and since we will be leaving the area soon we headed over to what has become our favorite Mexican food restaurant: Con Queso's. The food is always great and the service friendly. I had the fish tacos and John had a chimichanga. On this particular occasion there was a gentleman there that I took to be the owner. I mentioned how amazing I thought the Chipotle Maple Sauce was that they put on the fish tacos. I also commented that I was going to try to recreate it - so he told me how to make it - sugar cane and chipotle - simple. He said that's how he believes cooking should be - simple - my philosophy as well! Good food doesn't have to be complicated. He also told me the secret seasoning for the fish - salt and pepper. Simple!
Sunday afternoon we had some friends show up and invite us to a favorite place of theirs to watch the cowboys game and have dinner - Brick House. We started with an appetizer - freshly made potato chips sprinkled with bleu cheese and served with queso. I am not a fan of bleu cheese but this stuff was yummy!
For the entree John had a burger, our friends one had steak & shrooms, the other chicken fried steak which was served with sausage gravy - all looked really good! I had the beer battered fish & chips, very good.
Despite the outcome of the game everyone had a good time. We will genuinely miss these two, they are great friends who are just fun to be around. Definitely have to stay in touch!
