We’ve had a pretty easy weekend. Yesterday we went on a drive around some of the neighborhoods in Roundrock directly south of Georgetown as well as some of those in Georgetown itself. We found a bunch of pretty good neighborhoods with some decent houses. We aren’t any where close to settling down but figured that this area was one of our prime options since we are close to Fort Hood and therefore can get back on Tricare Prime for medical purposes. What we would be looking for is 1000-1200 square feet probably with an open floor plan for kitchen/dining area/living area. Neil would prefer a townhouse over a regular house since he doesn’t’ want grass or leaves or snow but he’s willing to just pay a neighborhood kid to do that if he has to.
Afterwards Neil made some chicken enchiladas for dinner; chopped up the leftover chicken from the other night and rolled it up in some tortillas with pepper jack cheese. He made a sauce of onions, flour, and half and half. Piled some jalapeño slices on top of the tortillas in a pan, covered with sauce, and topped with a mixture of cheddar and smoked gouda (hey, it was leftover and this was a whatever is in the fridge kind of dinner) and baked it for 20 minutes to make it all bubbly. Quite tasty. We split them with a beer.
This morning we went to Mass at Saint Helen’s again and had a whole ‘nuther interpretation of the Mass order; the priest must have flipped two pages instead of one during the Eucharistic prayer and we spent the next 10 minutes fumbling around a bit. That was after his harangue about tithing to the parish for 15 minutes and then your regularly scheduled 20 minute sermon.
Tonight (well, this afternoon actually) we’re having a Dark and Stormy and then are headed off to Monument Cafe for dinner. This is a place that Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-ins and Dives featured. Tomorrow we’re going to Dos Salsas for dinner; it’s supposedly the best Mexican in town
Tomorrow’s another work day for Connie…Neil is going to do laundry (funny how that stuff doesn’t just go away) and break down all the campsite stuff except for dumping tanks. Air up the tires, take down the flagpole, take down the slide topper support, take the tire covers off…the usual stuff.
Tuesday we’re off to Denton TX right outside of Dallas (well, Plano actually) for a week.
