Jan 30, 31, 2012 Blessing Hotel & Spaghetti Dinner

Monday morning - take car to Craig's Tire to fix the lights on the car - the passenger side light was not working, and I got stopped Friday night and was given a written warning by a policeman...grrr.  So, after an hour and a half they said they needed to order a part, come back tomorrow. 

I came home and we decided to go for a ride - and ended up in Port Lavaca where we decided to drive on to Blessing, TX.  Our friends, David & Janet recommended the Hotel Blessing - and OMG were they ever right!  The hotel is fabulous, and they serve lunch on two old wood burning stoves, it is an all you can eat buffet.  It is truly amazing - for a Monday here is what the pots and pans held:  First of all, lots of salads...tossed, broccoli, coleslaw with apples, applesauce, pickled beets, fruit salad, fresh yeasty homemade rolls, cornbread, and on the stove - green beans w/bacon, hominy w/jalepenos, corn, butter beans, spinach.  Mashed potatoes and fluffy rice.  Beef tips with mushroom gravy, roast beef slabs, country fried steak, pork chops that were 1.5 inches thick, breaded and fried...apple cobbler and cake, ice tea and coffee...and the bill was $17 for both of us!!!  WOWOWOWOW!!!! 

On the drive home David slept most of the way, he gets tired so easily any more - it is worrying but we go on :)

This morning it was back to Craig's Tire to get the light fixed.  I highly recommend this garage - they did the same thing that the Chevy garage did in Wisconsin the only difference is that the bill here was $43...and WI was over 200.  Hmmm, stay away from dealers!!!

This evening we joined our friends Janet & Dave at their RV park, Coastal Oaks for a spaghetti dinner - it was excellent, but the best thing about it was the company! 

We are now snuggled in for the night, and tomorrow we head down the road to Mission TX, where we will continue to eat our way through Texas :) 

Dave and Janet - we had a wonderful week - and we'll look forward to seeing you in PA!!!
