I took my kids out to eat at a place called Picnic in Houston, it is a nice small place that appears to be named after an old movie. It has a couple of picnic tables inside, but has a deli "feel" to it. We ordered some simple sandwiches and dined inside, it is hot in Houston this time of year.

We decided to look around while we waited for our sandwiches, and noticed that practically everything we picked up was either made in Texas or some other state in the U.S., now this was interesting to us, we normally don't see things made in the U.S. much less in Texas. It is a quaint place, with honey in mason jars (including some of the comb), that came from Pearland, Texas; corn on the cobb popcorn (you pop it in the microwave cobb and all) from Missouri, and wouldn't you guess...the tea and chips...Texas too. Thank you Austin for the Sweet Leaf Tea, and Plano for all of the Frito Lay chips. It became somewhat of a scavenger hunt, you know, like playing the license plate game when you go on a road trip. We didn't have any idea how many things were made in Texas, much less the U.S. it was nice to go to a place that had that down home country feel to it.
