My husband was invited to go to a conference for work. You can imagine how excited I was when I found out wives were invited to come along. I love to travel in general, but when it is an all-expense paid trip, I love it even more. The conference was originally supposed to be in Seattle and I was extatic – one, because I had never been there, and two, because the food is rumored to be pretty phenomenal. I started researching where we would eat, what we would do, and where we would go, only to be told a few weeks later that the conference was cancelled and we would be attending a new conference – in Dallas, Texas.

I was a little disappointed. After all, I had done research for Seattle and I knew exactly where I wanted to go. However, I quickly got on board for Dallas and I’m glad I did because it was a very rewarding trip. The conference had some great speakers, we saw some really cool places, and the food was actually (I have to admit suprisingly) very good. I do love Southern food, but living a few years in TN, I have to admit, sometimes it gets a little boring (and a little fattening). So I was expecting much of the same in Dallas. I’m glad I was proved wrong.

So, here it is, my very Texas-y blog about all the things I experienced in Dallas (mostly food related).

Portabella fries – I think I’d almost have these over regular fries

I ordered a Greek Salad to be healthy – then ordered some mac and cheese and potato cakes. I don’t regret it at all.
Some kind of doughy bread that’s traditional to Texas
Elm Street – now famous because it’s where JFK was shot.

When in Rome…
A Buffalo Quesadilla

You can’t go to Texas and not eat some good Tex Mex food.

All in all, a great trip.
