As we are heading toward San Antonio, we made a point to fit in a couple days to stop in The Woodlands to visit Justin’s brother Travis and his wife Emily, as well as the friends we have made in this area just north of Houston.
We are enjoying this family time, hanging out, sharing some meals, exploring Houston, and petting kitties.
We are also getting in some good eats!
Trav and Em introduced us to Bubbies ice cream, which is ice cream, formed and wrapped in mochi, a glutinous rice paste, with a consistency similar to rolled fondant or marzipan. These were really delicious, though the texture took just a minute to get used to, kind of like biting through a Starburst candy.
And while we were out and about today we stopped at Sprinkles for cupcakes after lunch. Quite tasty, and the Lemon Coconut was especially well received by the guys, though I will always be partial to chocolate and peanut butter!
