What wear in the heat.

What to wear in in 94° weather?  Pierre Mantoux summer tights of course! OK, other's might call them fishnets, but they are summer tights to me.
My Happy Birthday Elaines and a cheapy dress my friend was going to throw away because she moved to Brooklyn and needed the closet space. Thanks Liza!
I have a slight addiction to tights and gloves.  I would say I have a slight addiction to shoes, but really, why insult your intelligence and waste your time?  You are smarter than that, and would you really believe me?  
Hugs kisses and Shoes,
Rocio

¿Que ponerme cuando la temperatura llega a 34°? Las medias de verano de  PierreMantoux  por supuesto! Bueno, bueno tal ves otroz las llaman medias de red, o mallas de red, pero para mi son mallas de verano.  
Mis Happy Birthday Elaines con un vestido chimbo que mi amiga iba a tirar por que despues de mudarce a Brooklyn necesitaba espacio en su armario. ¡Gracias Liza!
Tengo una pequeña adicción a las mallas y los guantes. Diría que tambien tengo una adicción a los zapatos, pero ¿me creen? 
Besos y zapatos, Rocío

Holy Stilettos! Even shoes need sleep!





Holy Stilettos, Batman! What are we doing up this late?  Well, we are working on one very nice something or other for you, so please stay tuned and I think in a few hours after we go to sleep, we'll be ready to show you our fun little project!
Yes, we shoes like to sleep in our cozy little duster bags inside our cozy little shoe boxes.
Why did you think we came boxed like that?
Vanity?
Hah!
This way, we shoes won't wake each other when we come in late from partying and dancing with you all night.
Hugs Kisses and Shoes, even the sleepy ones, Rocio

¡Santos Tacónes, Batman! ¿Y porque estamos despiertas tan tarde? Pues estamos trabajando en algo lindo para ustedes, así que más tarde regresen para ver lo que les tenemos. Pero despues de dormir.  Y sí, sí dormimos, dentro nuestras bolsitas dentro de nuestras cajitas.  ¿Porque crees que llegamos en esas cajas? ¿Vanidad? ¡Nooo! De ese modo los zapatos no se despiertan entre sí cuando llegamos tarde de las fiestas depues de baliar con ustedes toda la noche! Bss y zapatos, Rocío

BBQ! Challenge

= A pretty fun weekend


On Thursday 3 of us took a road trip through Texas and tried three of Lockhart's barbecue places.
These were the rules:
We must eat at all 3.
No sides, just meat.
Enjoy and be ready for dinner in a few hours.

Participants:
The Chef
The Driver
and The Shoe girl



How Mustard As Sole travels:

First Stop:
Smitty's, our FAVOURITE

They serve it in butcher paper, and you have a choice of crackers or white sandwich bread.
No sauce.  The ribs were the best, but it was hard to pick.  Great smoke flavour, smoke ring, and extremely flavourful.  You do not miss the sauce or condiments when you have their barbecue.  YUM!
I personally did not care for the sausage, but that's because I am not used to eating this type.  It tastes like American breakfast sausage, the kind you get in patties.  Is it a Southern American thing?  The friend really liked it and said it was delicious.  The chef not so much, but that's because he also was just concentrating on the ribs and the meat  

It looks closed, most people parked in the back of the building and there is an entrance through the back.

When you enter through the back, you walk in by the fire they have on the ground:


This is the smokey delicious pile of meat and bread you receive. 

A close up of the sausage, brisket, and ribs!





Second Stop:
This place is more about the sides and sauce, but we did not have any sides, they did, however, have Mexican Cokes! So they get points for that! Oh, and they have bicycle and motorcycle (scooter) parking, another plus.








When you walk into this building, the first thing you smell is sauce.  It is a tangy and sweet aroma.  The ribs had a slight pineapple flavour to them.  The Chef didn't catch it, and I think the Friend was out by this point, but I got this slight pineapple sweetness.  I liked that.



Our final stop:

This is a huge building.  I think they might have planned to make this one an airplane drive through.
  

This place is similar to Smitty's since they are a result of a family split.
I found their ribs to be on the peppered side.  They are supposed to have the same recipe as Smitty's, but I think someone that day must have been experimenting with a Peppered recipe.  Their shoulder clod was DELICIOUS.





Here it is in a nut shell:

If you want the authentic experience, no forks, no sauce, walk out smelling of smoke, SMITTY'S is for you.  This is for those that are looking for the real Texan barbecue experience.  My favourite!

If you want that, and don't want to leave your airplane, then tell your pilot to take you to Kreuz's Market.  Same butcher paper, no fork, no sauce, and no smokey smell on your clothes and hair when you leave.

If you like sauce, then you should ride your bike (or scooter) over to Black's Barbecue, enjoy a Mexican Coke and take advantage of their bicycle and motorcylcle parking.  Nice shaded outdoor patio as well.  
Hugs kisses, BBQ & Shoes, Rocio
