A New Place to Eat!

There is a new eatery in town and we’ve been meaning to stop by and check out Frank and Lola’s Bohemian Tacos. I had the smoked chicken tacos on flour tortillas and Brad had the brisket on flour tortillas. Oh. My. Word. Absolutely the best tacos I’ve ever eaten. Anywhere. And that includes my own homemade tacos, which I haven’t made in ages. Brad thoroughly enjoyed the brisket and I’ll give that a try next time.

The chicken is shredded and topped with pickled red onion and cojita cheese with a side of roasted pineapple salsa. The brisket is topped with pickled red onion, shaved brussels slaw, cojita cheese and a side of tomatillo salsa. We both prefer the roasted pineapple salsa to the tomatillo salsa but that’s just our particular taste.

They have a huge fan blowing from the back of the restaurant and it was a bit noisy for my ears. I’d like to go back when the weather is nicer, and drier, and sit out on the patio to eat.

We had gone to Pottsboro to drop off a couple of caps to have logo patches sewn on them, my machine won’t handle that heavy fabric and patches, and were favorably impressed with Zippers Handcrafted Boutique. Very good prices! And Brad can bring in a windbreaker and get the back of it embroidered so he has a police jacket to wear. She can put another logo patch on the breast of the jacket as well. She charges $4.00 per patch and about $25.00 for the embroidery. Can’t beat that!

Then on the way home we stopped at Frank and Lola’s. All in all a great day so far. The storms have passed and the sun is trying to peek out. While we were away from the house I managed to finish the third mini skein that I had intended to finish before bedtime last night. We had hot cocoa last night. It made me sleepy. Brad went off to bed soon after and I fell asleep in the recliner with my knitting in my lap! Anyway, I’ve started the fourth mini skein and will do my best to finish that today. I’ve got some laundry to catch up on and nothing else to get in the way of what I want to do this afternoon.

The longer the scarf gets the more difficult it is to photograph when spread out so I folded it back for this shot. Loving the Autumn colors…

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
