Amigos Tacos

I have grown up with a love for spicy food, especially Mexican cuisine.  I don’t even know if this is the same place or not, but there was a little place across the street from the library in Plano, Illinois, where you could get authentic, homemade tacos.  I learned about the power and heat that was possible in salsa verde in Amigos Tacos.  Whether this is the same one, same family or just same name, it is one place I thank for giving me an appetite for Mexican food!

Texas Barbecue

I can’t recall the names of any specific locations where I enjoyed barbecue in Texas.  That’s because all of them were so good!  The smoky flavor.  The amazing sauces! Beef!  Beef!  Beef!  If you have a favorite, please list it here and explain why it is so unique or your fave.  And then find a way to get me down to Texas so I can sample some and be the judge of your pick myself!

Pappasito’s Cantina

I have a boss and several co-workers who have lived or are from Texas.  One place they often miss is called Pappasito’s Cantina.  On a trip with them a few years ago, I enjoyed the opportunity to visit Pappasito’s and devour some sizzling fajita’s.  I then returned my friends’ favor by sending him a picture of me enjoying Pappasito’s in the Dallas airport on a different trip a few years later.  Whether you enjoy the blessing of living near one or you happen to catch one on your travels, I recommend you grab a friend and get some fajita’s at Pappasito’s!

Cream Tea in the Cotswolds

During the time my wife and I lived in England, some good American friends who are missionaries there took us to the Cotswolds for a very enjoyable day that included cream tea.  The heavy cream, scones, jam and British tea are part of a delightful memory I relive on cool autumn days.  Our experience there has led my default hot tea choice to be British with sugar and a splash of milk.  Unfortunately, I have never had a cream tea like I did in the Cotswolds.
