Texas in April

Posted on: May 16, 2010

There is no place closer to heaven than Texas in April.  Every year the wildflowers come up with no help from anyone other than a higher power.  And they are always spectacular.

Take a drive along any highway in central Texas during late March or April every year and you are treated to a wonderful show of colors.  Oranges, many shades of blue and purple, yellow, they are all so beautiful.

Years ago, Blue Bell Ice Cream had an ad campaign that simply said something like ‘ice cream s0 good,  the cows think Brenham’s heaven’.  I think the cows are right.

We packed a picnic and enjoyed the sights and it was a great day.  And now we know that there’s no place like Texas, especially in April!

Picnic Lunch:

Turkey Sandwiches with Basil Mayonaise (remember to keep these chilled) – Your everyday turkey sandwich but jazzed up with basil mayonaise.  Gives it a little more flavor and makes it special.

Fruit Salad – mixed fruit with a honey yogurt sauce.  We dipped ours instead of eating it with a fork.  Lent itself to a more romantic picnic for the two of us.

Jolly Rancher Martinis – Mix at home, pour and enjoy.  For the adult crowd only..

1 oz watermelon pucker

2 oz vanilla vodka

1/2 oz sweet and sour mix

1/2 oz cranberry juice

Shake over ice and strain into glasses.

Then enjoy.
