San Antonio

What a wonderful, refreshing, family vacation.  It has been a while since we have taken a family vacation, no one else along, just the 4 of us.  It was so nice.  We decided to visit San Antonio.  One reason was the giant cinnamon buns Phillip saw on Food Network that were at Lulu's in San Antonio, that was one thing specifically that he MUST try.  Of course it was delicious, enough for the 4 of us for two desserts.  LOL.  But we saw so much more.  I had not been to San Antonio since Officer Basic back in 1990.  Much touristing going on.  We all decided that our favorite place to eat, even with all the rave reviews of all the other restaurants was....Green, Vegetarian Cuisine.  Just delicious!  I think we could easily stick around and go back to that place every day and just go down the menu trying everything!  One interesting tid bit we found out while at Green.  The chef/owner of Green used to own Lulu's.  He needed a "health check" and decided to switch gears, instead of the chicken fried....etc of Lulu's, to start a healthy restaurant.....thus Green was born. So glad he did! (OK that was the very short version of the story, but if you visit Green you can read the long version).

Here are just a few pictures from our visit.
