Something Old, Something New
It was a perfect Houston day, a blue, no cloud in the sky, low humidity kind of spring day. With a little Buble-Sinatra mix on the stereo, we set out to make something old and something new for dinner. We fried up some shrimp with my Nana's recipe that I have made time and time again, an old southern classic batter made of buttermilk and cornmeal. For dessert, we tried something we have only had in restaurants, Tres Leches. It turned out scrumptious, using a recipe from Texas Highways magazine. The girls and I "styled" our cake with strawberries and a dusting of cinnamon. The man in the house was horrified that we did so.
