Fried Salsa!

Fried Salsa! Bless the energetic man behind the counter that told me to try this. At the Texas State Fair unique foods is the name of the game. Fried Salsa was one of the best fried foods I tried all day. It’s also one of the foods I wish I could make in my kitchen, but I feel intimidated. It was 10 o’clock in the morning when we arrived at the fair and it was 10 o’clock when we tried this creation. Some people went in there with the mindset that it’s too early to eat fried salsa, but my mindset was it’s never too early to try something new! Fried Salsa is salsa encased by tortilla chip crumbs with queso sauce on the outside. An extremely brilliant idea and a tasty one too. Lovedit!


Stay tasty, Ellie Grace

Birds Actually Fly South

Notice in the picture there are black dots on the electric wire. No, this isn’t a joke. That’s real life. Those are birds. Compare to Virginia Texas is way down south. I had totally forgotten that birds fly south. I never really thought about where south was, but being in Texas as it grows colder up north the birds are everywhere. I will never forget that now and I will never forget my first Whataburger. I was in the Whataburger drive thru, waiting for my burger to be ready when all of the sudden I see a flock of what looked like a million birds. No, I haven’t see a million birds before, but I’m sure million birds looks like what I saw. They were all in the air and there was more and more and more coming. It remind me of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie Birds. I had to watch that movie in high school and I still haven’t forgotten those children being attacked by birds. It was so crazy that I was laughing so much I was crying. I totally could not believe it. Oh, and the Whataburger wasn’t anything spectacular. It was alright. I’m happy to say I’ve tried it.

Stay Classy and watch out for the birds!

Crackin’ Crabs

For some reason I’m in love with this picture of me at Joe’s Crab Shack. You can’t tell at all that I did in fact wear a dress to the crab shack. Before anyone starts to judge the fact that I wore a dress let me tell you why I did it. I’m a slender girl who loves wearing jeans. Jeans are my favorite thing, but when I eat I always get a food baby. The smartest, most attractive way to be comfortable with a food baby is the maxi dress. Of course Texas has amazing weather so I didn’t look totally out of place, though I did look a tad dressy for the restaurant. So, what did I eat? I had a pound of Snow crab legs, half pound of shrimp, sausage, corn on the cob, and fries. GIANT FOOD BABYYY! Now, I don’t understand why they put the sausage in the basket. It’s as if to say that I need a intermission from all of the seafood. Something to get me through all the seafood I’m eating. I wasn’t sure why we put that in there, but I did eat a little of it. Had an amazing time.  Hopefully when I get back to Northern Virginia I’ll be able to go out to our Crab Shack!

Stay Classy, Ellie Grace.

I’m In Texas!


I’m here in Texas this month enjoying everything that Texas has to offer. I was confused about Texas even as I made my first journey from the airport to the house I am currently staying in. There seems to be one giant highway that goes down the middle of Dallas. Then, there are sub counties or smaller towns. I’ve been all over the small little towns. I was in Little Elm, The Colony, Frisco, and more that I can’t remember the name of. The one thing that has been a big theme of my trip here is to try the food. Since I’m from Northern Virginia a lot of these fast food places aren’t familiar to me. Every time I tell someone I haven’t been to a certain place they look at me shocked as if my whole life has been a lie or a waste. It’s not that I’ve been under a rock it’s that the 13 original colonies have no room to build anything else because every piece of land is historic! Anyways, there’s a pretty blue sky with no clouds in sight and the sun is calling my name!
