Visiting another area of our vast country and enjoying the variety of regional foods is always a special treat! In the past few days my DH & I traveled to Houston, TX for our niece’s beautiful wedding.
While staying in The Woodlands, we took a stroll down the pedestrian walkway along the Waterway Koi Pond. Click here for info. Looking down into the Koi Pond, various sized Koi swam gracefully. Some were very large and in an area close by, little fish vigorously swam. An informative young boy and his mom were also admiring the peaceful scenery. He told us where to look for the baby fish.
While standing on a walking bridge overlooking the pond, beautiful colorful Water Lilies bloomed. Gazing down we could see the leaves and buds of the plant below the water’s surface. A gentle breeze caused ripples in the pond. How gorgeous and tranquil!
And it is a bit of info to share with school groups when I give my Japan Tours at the Quadrangle. Who knew I would bring back to MA some info for my tours?
Each day we ate delicious food! Avocados were part of a meal – sometimes mashed and at other times sliced or cut in chunks as part of a salad. Yummy, this is one tasty fruit! Yes, they are available to me in my grocery stores, but I never purchase them – just walk past the display in the Produce aisle. Well, that is to change. A couple of slices of Avocado on a Tuna Salad Sandwich would be so good!
Tomorrow, when I replenish the fridge guess what item will be on my grocery list! Do you have recipes using Avocados?
They are yummy!
We really enjoyed them!
