Deep In the Heart of Texas

Last Saturday, Cecil was finally starting to feel better and we felt safe leaving him home by himself for a little bit.  We decided to head out to Texas Land and Cattle.  We had passed it several times and mentioned wanting to try it.  I was excited to see upon arrival that there were a couple of groups of kids going to the prom there as well.  They looked pretty cute.  The menu was pretty broad and had lots of choices, but we both wanted steak.  We each ordered filets, but with our own unique touches.  Mine was the smaller size with BBQ seasoning cooked medium well.  Mike went with the larger size, cooked medium, and seasoned with salt and pepper.  That's where the similarities ended.  For my sides, I ordered the side salad with a cilantro lime vinaigrette dressing and the jalapeno cheese grits.  Mike went all out with the carbs and ordered the mac and cheese and fries.  The food came pretty quickly and everything was delicious.  The steaks were cooked perfectly and well seasoned.  My salad was pretty basic but I really loved the dressing.  I will have to find a recipe or a place to buy a similar version.  I also enjoyed my grits.  They tasted just like my favorite cheese grits with an added kick of well chopped jalapenos.  Mike's sides were good too.  I really liked the mac and cheese and was impressed by the unique shape of the pasta.  It was definitely a good meal and was nice to get out of the house for a bit.  We look forward to going back and trying out some of the other options they have to offer.
