I also want to mention three of my very favorite eating establishments, all downtown on Oak Avenue, and all providing delicious, tasty treats. The Brazos Market and Bistro has about the best soup you can get anywhere; and with cold weather upon us, what a great place to go and get warm. The rest of the food is great, and they sell lots of interesting items and gifts.
Fudgy's Burgers and Dogs is going great guns, and if you haven't had one of Fudgy's Dogs – complete with every item but the kitchen sink – well, you just haven't had a dog! They also do a great breakfast, and the cook is one of the few anywhere who knows how to scramble an egg!
Another great place to eat downtown is the Black Horse. Those guys have a wonderful cafe with scrumptious food, and everything with a crust is simply to die for; Joe really knows how to make a crust!
Also, a great new shop in Mineral Wells is Merrimac and North, named for where two streets cross in Weatherford. They have a hair salon, wonderful and unique antiques, and lovely bakery items. They also serve hot coffee, and it's just an interesting place to browse!
Well, I have really only hit the highlights of some of our local shops here in Mineral Wells, but I'll bet you can get a gift certificate for any of these places; and what a great Christmas gift that would be.
So, with that, I will say, Happy Thanksgiving. I pray it is safe and memorable for each of you. We are very blessed to live in a hometown such as this, where we care about each other!
Thank God for Mineral Wells!
