Quick San Antonio Eats

We made a quick pop over from Houston to show my parents San Antonio on New Year's Day. The weather was absolutely dismal (rainy & hardly 40°F! Whaaaaaat, Texas?!?!) so we didn't get to truly enjoy the River Walk & Historic Market Square like last year with JB's parents...but we still ate well! :-D

We *had* to go to the sparkliest, kitschiest, most festively decorated TexMex restaurant on earth - Mi Tierra:
Annelise & I savored our creamy, cinnamony Mexican hot chocolates! Mmmmmmm...

Requisite pilgrimage to the Alamo:

"Man vs. Food" massive cinnamon roll challenge accepted!!! Happy healthy new year! ...Wait, what? :-P ;-)
We first saw these on the San Antonio episode of "Man vs. Food" at a diner called Lulu’s, famous for its chicken-fried steaks & three-pound cinnamon rolls. The rolls are made from a piece of dough that is SIX FEET LONG, rolled up like a burrito with cinnamon & sugar! We got through over 2/3rds of it...with six people. :-D We waited five extra minutes for the freshest right out of the oven = heaven!!! The BEST part (center!) came home with me. ;-)
