Finally back home! ; We went out of town for almost a week for a family member’s funeral and although I enjoyed seeing the family, I’m glad I’m home. Glad I’m back to my own kitchen! We ate out almost every meal for 4 days. That’s 12 restaurant trips! Ughh.. And probably 12,000 calories. It is really difficult to eat healthy while eating out, and even harder when others are eating unhealthy too. I did make a few healthy decisions like baked and grilled chicken over fried chicken, and I passed the bacon and opted for BBQ beef.

One restaurant that I haven’t been to in a while what Jucy’s Burger in Longview Texas. It was tasty! I didn’t eat a burger because I don’t like ground meat, but my husband and mother-in-law enjoyed theirs while the kids and I chomped on chicken. The fries were from scratch, and although a little greasy, they had a good flavor.

Another restaurant we had food from was Bodacious BBQ, also in Longview. We’ve been there a few times over the years that I’ve known my husband and I’m not disappointed. It’s no Rudy’s BBQ here in Austin, but it is mighty tasty. I ate BBQ brisket 3 days in a row its that good!

The funeral service was beautiful, and I know it will take all of us a while to come to terms with what has happened, but I feel getting the family together was beficial for us all.
