Food on Fridays: Brief Scenes from Texas involving Food

fof(smaller button below)

Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe.If you want, you can simply list all the orange food sitting in your fridge right now. You could even stage a still life photo to upload and share, complete with pumpkins and sweet potatoes. Anyway, my point is that posts like that are as welcome as menus and recipes.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post. It ties us together visually.Then plug your name and link into Linky Tools.

Food on Fridays with AnnLaity Lodge food is good.And I didn’t hold back.For one meal, they served us curried chicken, squash and salad:Note the generous portions I served myself.And brunch on Sunday? Honestly, I should be ashamed of myself:I piled it on.The hash browns were so good, several of us were actually talking about them hours later. The pink stuff at about 10:00 on my plate? Salmon! And can you see the gigantic blackberries in the fruit salad? Of course you can—apparently things really are bigger in Texas……including my appetite.But before I left Laity Lodge, I knew I wanted to take a picture of the poppy seed bread that L.L. Barkat referenced.It’s hospitality you can sink your teeth into.Thank you to the cooks and servers at Laity Lodge for preparing and serving these memorable meals (and many more—like the stuffed pork roast, and a beef and Guinness pie—all of which I greedily consumed but forgot to photograph).

    1. Mmmm, looks good! Doesn’t everything taste better when someone else prepares it?

    2. Those hashbrowns and blackberries sound amazing! I would have had to load my plate with those! Or gone for seconds! :)

    3. Laity Lodge’s food looks and sounds wonderful – what great hospitality. I clicked over to L.L. Barkat’s post where she referenced the poppy seed bread and I’m so glad I did, it’s a lovely, lovely post. Thanks so much for hosting – have a wonderful weekend!

        Hospitality is one of Laity Lodge’s top goals or values–and L.L. sure made the poppy seed bread sound divine. I cut two slices for myself after reading it! She has another post about it at her own blog, but I couldn’t find it.

        I do find myself sort of hankering for a slice of that bread right about now…

    4. What a fabulous meal, Ann! I doubt I would have been able to restrain myself either with such goodness. ;-)

      I linked up a new flourless cookie recipe, which I made into S’mores much to the delight of friends camping with us recently. Great concept for those who are gluten free and don’t want to fool with buying or making gf graham crackers. Well, great for all really! :-)

      Have a great weekend! Hugs,

        It was hard not to feel like a glutton–they put all of that good stuff right under our noses to bless us, and then I just went wild!

        Love your gluten-free creativity! (hey, that rhymes)

    5. I would have been piling the food high on my plate too! It looks good! :)

      • annkroeker says:

        Elsa, you can’t see the height at the angle of that photo, but it really was high. I mean, it was a mountain of hash browns. I think I put them right on top of the eggs to maximize my portion.

    6. Thanks for hosting!

    7. Mmm, that looks delicious! As much as I love cooking, it is still always wonderful to eat the amazing food cooked by others!

      Thanks for hosting :)

    8. I was sitting next to you when you took that brunch photo – yes, it was a mountain! Right next to the mountain I had piled on my own plate. So delicious. All of it. Every last bit.
