We’ve decided to explore the area on weekends. Last weekend we went to the BBQ Goat Cook Off in Brady. After looking at the house and land yesterday, we headed towards Dublin, TX. Dublin is about 30 miles from the land we were looking at.
The oldest Dr. Pepper bottling company in the whole world is located in Dublin, TX. The history is very interesting. We had heard about their Dr. Pepper floats and they were every bit as good as we’d been told. Dr. Pepper and Blue Bell ice cream . . what more could you ask for? And, the Dr. Pepper bottled in Dublin is all made with Imperial pure cane sugar vs. corn syrup. Some of the restaurants here serve the Dr. Pepper made with real sugar and I love those!
It was an interesting place, something every Dr. Pepper lover should experience and I think Vince and I might make frequent weekend trips there for those Dr. Pepper floats. Oh . . and they had root beer cake and Dr. Pepper cake samples. I bought a packaged mix for the root beer cake because the icing was to die for! I’m hoping I can come up with a recipe for making it without the kit because it was a bit expensive to buy . . and I think I might want to make a root beer cake every day!
From there we went to a real meat market also in Dublin.
There were funny men working in there. Check out the critter on the wall. They’re everywhere! Houses, businesses . . we don’t have one . . yet! 🙂
It’s been so long since I was able to go to a good meat market, pick and choose the meat I wanted and know I was getting quality meat.
We bought meat for the whole week and I’m anxious to see if Vince notices that it’s better than what we buy in the grocery stores.
We did more exploring but I’ll share that in another post later. Don’t want to bore you with too much of our Texas explorations in one post!
