It’s Monday, it’s a new week filled with new opportunities. Grab a coffee and stay a while. Today on Hetty’s home kitchen it’s all about the Texan food culture and I’m super excited about it.
Texas is known for it’s good food and their food is always full of flavor and their known for their amazing steaks and BBQ related food. But it’s also a lot more than that; you have the mix of the south — Creole/Cajun but also German, British, African American, Native American, Spanish and Asian. The mix of flavors are many and the dishes are as assumed inspired by these food cultures. A lot of food cultures mixed into one. Just the way it’s supposed to be, take the best out of each cuisine, mix them together and you get the Texan food culture. Amazing to think about, and the flavors are so great and usually pretty spicy.
The hamburger was invented in Athens, Texas in the 1880’s by a man with the name Fletcher Davis. He owned his own little lunch counter, then later he and his wife later opened up a sandwich stand where they served meat patties made from ground beef served between two slices of bread, Bermuda onion and mustard, he would always serve the pickle on the side.
Another thing that is very popular in Texas is the brisket taco, something I think I would love to try while I’m Texas this fall. Yes, that is correct! I’m planning on going on a trip to Texas this fall to visit my Bestie, and to experience the wonderful culture that Texas has to offer. Nothing is decided yet, but I will do my best to try and make it happen.
The BBQ food in Texas is usually served with some sort of hot sauce, white bread, pickles, jalapenos, sliced onion and some sort of salad; rice salad or potato salad. When it comes to dessert pecan pie is a favorite amongst the Texan people, so is banana pudding and fruit cobbler.
I know for sure that if I ever visit Texas the food will be amazing and I’m looking forward to one day getting to experience the Texan culture and the food.
Signing off the kitchen today dreaming about the Texan food culture.
I hope y’all are having an amazing Monday and I hope to see y’all back here tomorrow for a new post.
Coming up tomorrow; Movie night Tuesday – favorite movie snacks of all time.
