Bandera Wedding

I spent the last weekend in Texas at my neice's wedding. It was sweet and uniquely Texan, being in Bandera which is the Cowboy Capital. The ceremony was held in a grove of gigantic live oak trees, sitting on hay bales covered in quilts set in concentric circles. The guys and gals wore boots, groom was handsome and bride was especially beautiful, just saying...
I almost didn't go, I had just returned from trips to Oklahoma, Washington, and Tennessee; then at the last minute I decided that I just couldn't miss seeing that girl walk down the aisle on her dad's arm. Well, some times you procrastinate and miss a HoneyPond, thank goodness I threw caution to the wind and got myself to that wedding.

Reception was at the Williams Creek Depot in Tarpley, which just happens to be owned and operated by the bride's family. The food was absolutely lip-smacking good; Poblano Mac & Cheese, Sweet Potato Rolls, Cornbread and Bar-B-Que Ribs washed down with Sangria, followed by Chocolate Fudge Pecan Pie. Oh my, Oh my....Well, here I am a homesick Texan wishing I had one more helping of that Mac & Cheese. So I googled Poblano Mac & Cheese and "lo and behold" what should come up but Sweet Life featuring The Homesick Texan Cookbook with a recipe for Poblano Mac & Cheese. Now I can't be sure that it will be as good as what I ate at that Bandera wedding, 'cause the atmosphere was half the goodness, but I'm sure gonna give it a whirl. And I also whirled on over to Petite Hermine to see what other goodies I could find while I posted for the first time to their Sunday Goodies.
