We arrived home last night weary but refreshed from our short little vacation, but I was way too tired from all that driving to even think about looking at a computer screen. We put in about eight hours driving from Marble Falls through Burnet, Llano, San Saba, Goldthwaite, then up toward Hillsboro, Ennis, to Canton, and then home.
We didn’t do a lot of stopping, but we did have a very tasty lunch at the famed Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls. This little hometown cafe has had famous diners such as Texas governor Rick Perry, former President and First Lady George and Laura Bush, and our son and daughter-in-law Matt and Taylor Coker! They serve breakfast 24 hours a day but we chose to have lunch instead. And since this little cafe is renown for their sky-high meringue pies, we had to sample a piece of pie! After all, they sell T-shirts that proclaim “In Pie We Crust!”
Man, my tacos and Jimmy’s club sandwich were good, but that coconut meringue pie and that chocolate meringue pie were to die for! Check out that meringue! I washed mine down with a strong cup of joe and practically floated out the door. That place is on my list of places to revisit!
