Sure things are bigger and better in Texas, and local produce and products from Texas often taste better too because they’re fresh!
Speaking of taste, if you like to ‘taste’ before you buy a new product, you can do just that at your HEB. From March 2-15 , all HEB stores are celebrating Texas Independence with a Tex Fest, and it sounds like great fun.
Texas cheese makers, salsa creators, wine makers, you name it, will be in the stores with samples of their products for you to try. I got a sneak preview of some of the delicious sauces PLUS a taste of some of the Texas wines that will be featured.
This almond crusted salmon dish with Oaxacan creamed corn is amazing, and Ralph, the Wine Guy, shows you some of his favorite wines on my website.
I’ve also got a Watermelon Glazed Chicken recipe from Cooking Connections that is delicious in my recipe section.
