Dinosaur Valley State Park and Brussel Sprouts


Glen on the run

Glen on the run

A visit to Dinosaur State Park during Spring Break was probably not a good idea. The place was full of folks with their school age children; there was a lot of shouting and splashing, parents warning their children about getting wet or falling, children pleased to find the ‘biggest and best rock ever’ to toss into the river, people oblivious to the fact they were blocking the passageway for others. We could see evidence of a relatively recent flood and washing away of part of the river. I took a few photos including one of Glen being chased by a dinosaur. He did manage to escape—a small boy dressed in camouflage with a water pistol shot that pesky dinosaur.

 

 

 

 

TomTom does not recognize Hwy 287; I think he thought I was out in a field riding a donkey or something. He got very frustrated and a bit short with me. We stopped by Sabine County Hospital in Hemphill to sign some paperwork and then home.

 

Yesterday I cleared out one garden bed and began prepping it for the spring planting. That meant picking all the lettuce and the two Brussels sprout plants. They were HUGE and I could not cut the root off. I spent about an hour washing lettuce and another half an hour cutting the sprouts off. Some of the small leaves looked rather tender and so I sautéed them in some butter and lots of garlic for a tasty side dish for our evening meal.
