A few weeks ago, I headed to the Round Rock Outlet Mall for a new event spearheaded by my friend, Lauri. Eat Drink Shop Texas is a local market that takes place in the front of the mall near the entrance on the third Saturday of each month. I missed the first one because I was working, so I was really determined to make it to this one. There were several tents with foods, natural products, and crafts all made in Texas. I was hoping to take Mike and have lunch, but things didn't work out that weekend. So, I decided to check it out by myself.
I didn't really need any crafts or natural body products, but I'm always up for food items. I purchased some raw local honey from Bubba's Bees. I've had this honey before and it tastes so much better than the stuff from the store. Now I just need to make some biscuits to put it on!
I stopped by the Savory Spice Shop booth. I've been to the store multiple times and have loved everything I've tried there. On this Saturday, she was handing out free samples of the California Citrus Rub. I baked some chicken and put this on the chicken breasts. It was great and definitely added a little bit of a kick to my chicken.
Finally, I do live in Texas, so I had to check out the Texas Sizzle All Natural BBQ sauce. I tried it and it was sweet and smoky deliciousness. I also liked that it was missing most of the preservatives normally found in sauce. The other cool thing I loved was that a dollar from each bottle was going to help flood victims in Wimberly, Texas. This sauce was a perfect combination with my super easy pulled pork from HEB and I have plenty of sauce leftover for my other endeavors.
So, if you're looking for something fun and local to do on the third Saturday of the month, I suggest you head over to Eat Drink Shop Texas. You never know what you might find!
