Mom's Quilt Show Adventure

My two sisters-in-law came from their respective coasts to the International Quilt Show in Houston. Eating at the show is a chore, but I packed Gorp for us to eat on the floor and some fruit for our breakfasts. They ate what they wanted to at the hotel for breakfast and at the Show for lunch, but my own choices were pretty limited, both for breakfasts and for lunch.

At dinner, however, we did well. We were in town for two nights and I took them to PF Chang's the first night. Neither of them had been to one, so that was fun. The second night we went to Ruggles, which I had heard of but never been to myself. It is at 903 Westheimer and is in an old house, brightly painted inside. They have menus which feature dots of different colors for Vegan, Dairy Free, and Gluten Free. The food was spectacular. I tried both soups that my SILS ordered and particularly liked the Butternut Squash Soup, which was very creamy and flavorful. The other soup ordered by a SIL was a Crab Corn Soup. It was a bit too spicy for me. For my entree I ordered the Red Snapper dish with creamy avocado sauce. It was almost like a soup itself and was to die for. In addition to that, I was served a separate plate of sides -- a boiled potato, some au gratin potatoes, asparagus, a grilled tomato, some truly outstanding pureed sweet potatoes--and! I was assured that I could eat everything on my plate without worry. What a great place to eat!!!
