Texas Barbecue

The same friend who told us about Toy Joy also mentioned Ruby's BBQ
as an authentic and yummy Texan place.
It is officially a dive, but a fun dive
(I personally like dives.)
Here's Emily dividing out the brisket we ordered--
it was amazing!
(It's been a really, really good food week.
After this I'm going on a celery and oatmeal diet,
I swear.)

We got seven different sides: beans, cole slaw, mustard potato salad,
collard greens, garlic mashed potatoes, home fries and crawfish etouffe,
plus brisket, pulled pork and sausage.
(Pretty much a sampling of everything!)
It sounds like a ton of food, but it wasn't too huge,
and we didn't eat everything, either.
But it was great to try.
The collard greens were fiery spicy
and only Charles could eat them.
The garlic mashed potatoes and beans were also hot.
The sides and bread were just ordinary,
but the barbecue itself was great
(and served on butcher paper, on trays:)

Happy siblings!

It's been a great trip,
but I'm ready to come home.
