Hi, We are Kevin and Sheryl, a couple who love life (hence the blog name)enjoy and love each other immensely. I retired from the Air Force in Jun 06 and Sheryl is a retired RN. We have wonderful children, scattered around the country. We have decided to become RVers and will be traveling the country talking about all she has to offer. So tag along with us as we enjoy life and all it has to offer.
If you are a fan of "The Food Network" then you have probably seen or heard of the Salt Lick BBQ near Austin, TX. Well we had, and since we are here just outside Austin and it just happens to be down the street a bit from us, BBQ for lunch was in order.
The Salt Lick is known for Good BBQ, but mainly for the open pit in the middle of the kitchen, just inside the front door. The sausage is hung over the pit for hours until time to serve. When you first walk in you are hit with that great BBQ smell and then get to see your meal right on the pit.
One of the pit masters serving up some yummies.
The final stage in the process, Pork Ribs, Brisket and Smoked Sausage.........man it was good. They serve it up with German Potato Salad, Cole Slaw and Baked Beans, more than enough food to keep you happy and your tummy stuffed!!! In our travels we have had a chance to eat at several places featured and recommended on the Food Network, and have mostly been disappointed, However we were pleasantly surprised by the Salt Lick. So if you are in the Austin area, point your ride towards Driftwood, TX and give it a go, you'll surly enjoy yourself.
We are staying here in the Austin area with Sheryl's bother and family. They have a couple of Shiatsu dogs which had a litter of puppy's not to long ago and all the puppy's were sold. Well, it just happened that one of the puppies was returned, because he didn't get along with their other pups. Of course you can see where this is heading......................yup Sheryl fell head over heels for the little guy, and I must say he tugged at my heart strings also. So after a couple of days trying my best to hold out, I finally caved and we now have a new member of our clan..............Scrappy Doo!!!
He is just too cute for words, and has taken to following me everywhere, as well as making my slippers his favorite sleeping spot. He'll be a welcome companion during our travels and I'm sure many hours of entertainment and love. Welcome to the family Scrappy!!!
