It’s no secret that I am a fan of Z’Tejas Southwestern Grill.  I’ve been invited for media tasting many times.  But I’ve also come back here with Allen regularly for lunch, dinner and happy hours.  Z’Tejas has one of the best Happy Hour in town.  You can sit in the entire dinning room, not just […]

    OMG. I LOVE me some Z’Tejas!

    I used to work in the area and would frequent the establishment…FOR THE CORN BREAD ALONE! Haha.

    As a vegetarian, it’s nice to see that the Summer menu has a couple of seafood dishes to choose from – YUM!

    I may have to go out of my way for some!

      I know! I love the corn bread so much! I have to stop myself from filling up on it so I can enjoy their entrees. They are always so nice to pack it for you to go, too! You will love the crab cakes and blackened Tilapia!ReplyCancel

Let’s face it, sooner or later, our hair is going to go gray.   But that doesn’t mean we have to show it.  How often do you color your gray?  Every 8 – 10 weeks?   But don’t you hate the ‘in between’ gray?  It’s not enough gray to color but enough to make you feel conscious […]

    I try any coverage product I can get my hand on. I just wish/hope/pray one day I will find one in a dark red.
    But I usually use a dark brown. At least it looks like brown is growing out – and not grey – so there’s that! ;) ReplyCancel
