If you’re anywhere close to Johnson City over the holidays and would like to get a healthy, organic, fresh lunch, you’ll want to eat at LADY BIRD LANE CAFE.  Their menu has lots of variety and my salad was one of the best I’ve had in the Hill Country.  I met my friend for lunch a few days ago and our salads, soup, and sandwiches were delicious—and fresh….really fresh—like Whole Foods kinda fresh.  They also have daily specials and if you’re taking kiddies to the Science Mill (next door), you will love the “Little Scientist” menu.  It’s right off Hwy 290 at the main intersection in downtown Johnson City.  They’re open Wednesday thru Saturday, 10am till 3pm.  Sunday hours are 12pm till 3pm.  In fact, after all the heavy Thanksgiving food, hopping in the car...

( I say a few weeks….it was before Denny’s knee replacement surgery.  That’s when our lives came to a dead halt.  You’ve probably noticed I haven’t been posting!). Anyway, back to Ole’s and the margarita tasting.  It was a job someone had to do and my only response was I may be over qualified.  As I’ve said before, Oli’s is the best Mexican food around and you’d be surprised to hear how far people drive to get good Mexican food.  (Remember...
