The Weekend Gourmet Dines Out...Featuring La Gloria Ice House
The Weekend Gourmet started as a way to share recipes with my family and friends…but it’s grown beyond anything I ever anticipated! I’m having such a great time, and I’ve made so many wonderful friends through the food blogging community. I’m happy that I have readers from all across the United States…and the rest of the world too! However, I recently decided to add a monthly feature specifically for my Texas-based readers….not that the rest of you won’t enjoy these posts, though! I live in San Antonio, which is in the middle of the state and 70 miles from the capital of Austin. Between these two cities, along Interstate 35, there are some fantastic restaurants. San Antonio is a big tourist destination, so I’m adding a monthly post spotlighting a local restaurant. I’m going to include the entire SA-Austin Corridor in my definition of “local.” Today is my first post in this series.
