Happy birthday, Texas!

After our busy day celebrating Dr. Seuss, we topped it off with a down home Texas meal.  The menu was inspired by all things Texas:
~chili (the state food of Texas)
~cornbread muffins
~pecan pie with Blue Bell ice cream
~Shiner beer (and root beer for the kids)

The girls thought it was cool that we served their "beer" in a bucket, and they enjoyed my spicy chili.  There's just something to be said for some Texas home cookin'.

My hubby is a native Texan and so are our kiddos.  This is something we find great pride in.  And, as they say, I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!  To quote one of my favorite songs, "When I was two I moved to Texas, sad to leave the United States..."  haha!
