Baboo’s first party

After what should have been a 30-minute trip to Grapevine that took 2.5 hours due to an accident on the highway, I arrived at the house of my Baylor roomie/Maid of Honor, Lindsay.  (Oh, her husband, Jason, lives there, too!!)   We have had quite the fun time catching up, eating all kinds of tasty treats, and playing with their not-yet-4-month-old Goldendoodle named Dakota.  Last night, Lindsay hosted an amazing dinner/shower for Baboo and invited 3 of our best Baylor friends.

If you look closely at the first picture, you’ll see that Linds came up with an ingenious (and inexpensive) way to anchor the flowers:  green peas!!   The picture on the right shows the neutral-colored (and somewhat Baylor colored) cookies that were incredibly tasty.  And in the middle, we have the guests:  my BU roomies Rachel and Lindsay on the top, the infamous Rosemond, who lived across the hall from me freshman year, on the left, and Fran, with whom I started kindergarten in Houston and got to spend our college years together as well, on the right.   About 30 minutes into the chat-fest, we realized how old we sounded discussing recipe swaps and breast pumps.  A far cry from our conversations of a decade ago when we first met!

So I flew back into Dallas on Thursday evening after being able to jump on an earlier flight from Amarillo.  I arrived, found the car my parents had left me, and took to the roads as fast as I could to make it to one of my favorite Texas destinations that probably makes the skin crawl of many of my contemporaries.  Yes, it’s Luby’s cafeteria, where I lower the average age by at least 20 years.  And yes, they stop serving at 8 PM!


I snapped this picture before I ate so I could document the ultimate meal that I’ve been eating for many, many years.  Here’s the winning combo:  fruit salad, a LuAnn platter with baked cod almondine (w/tartar sauce), macaroni and cheese, and broccoli, some sort of bread product, and the piece de resistance– the custard.   Ah, a little bit of Texas heaven…
