The weekend turned out to be far more than I anticipated. Originally our plans were to work around the house on Saturday and participate in our chapter skills day on Sunday. We got up early Saturday morning and the temperature was a nice cool 65 degrees and was only supposed to get up to around 85 for the high. We didn't want to miss out on the nice weather so we planned a short 248-mile ride to Strawn, TX to have lunch at Mary's. They are well known for their chicken fried steak and Margaret had never been there. So off we went with chicken fried steak on our minds! And the ride of course!
As usual, the food was wonderful, Margaret ordered the small steak and I ordered the medium portion. They have a large portion but I simply cannot imagine eating a monster like that! Even the medium one is gigantic. There is nothing fancy about Mary's though, just good food and good value. The destination definitely makes for a nice short road trip with a purpose. On the way home, we went through Stephenville, TX, and saw a lot of possible reasons for going back there. A lot of antique shops lined the road as well as some restaurants that I thought might be good to try.
