Alcy, Debi and I got together today for our Christmas dinner. For a long time Debi has been wanting to take us to Snappy’s in Katy, today we made it. Snappy’s is the type of café that you generally find on the square of some small town far from the likes of Houston. Just good food, community comradary—a great place for the locals to get together. No snobbery, down to earth, my kind of place to eat.
Alcy ordered waffles and grits (remember she is from the north so grits is a stretch), Debi ordered a hamburger and I ordered something that I dearly love but seldom find on the menu—liver and onions with cream gravy.
When I placed my order the waitress commented, “Oh, the anti-Christmas meal.” Alcy and Debi thought that very funny. I wasn’t aware there was an anti-Christmas meal but the comment does bring up a question: why is liver and onions any less Christmas than waffles or hamburger. I enjoyed it but there was way more food than I could eat so I brought the remains home for the dog. Of course, I don’t have a dog.
I have a great life, a very blessed life and wonderful friends. Only one thing is always missing.
