Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Case's Vacation Journal: Peanut Butter That Looked Like Banana Cream

Posted 06-12-2021 at 06:33 AM by case44

I'd rather that the following snippet of my life be used to endorse a restaurant and not put it down. One of the three times I decided to stop at Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls, Texas, and ran into a strange predicament.

Oh, it didn't taste bad at all, by any means, but the following food item I'm about to mention did have an odd texture. After a recent dinner at the aforementioned eatery, I had decided to get dessert, and it consisted of a slice of peanut butter pie. And Bluebonnet is known for their many pies and their many selections. If you travel U.S. Highway 281 between San Antonio and Wichita Falls, then this place I'm talking about is a must-stop-at place for food, be it breakfast, lunch, or din-din. So, this pie was being brought to my table by one of the friendly waitresses at Bluebonnet. Once again, the item I ordered was a peanut butter cream pie.

It didn't look like peanut butter, for some reason. The color and texture suggested coconut cream, not peanut butter. Yellow peanut butter?? Banana? That is what it looked like from this writer's perspective, despite a whipped-cream topping and the obligatory chocolate syrup drizzle. Nevertheless, I ate it. There was a slight hint of peanut butter, but not near as much as I would have had at other places that did peanut butter pie a better way. Look, again, I'm not knocking Bluebonnet Cafe; they do wonderfully with their pies. It was good, but it was the most bizarre peanut butter pie that I've had in the history of ever. By the way, y'all should try them for dinner or for breakfast. You will not be sorry. Lots of fabulous meal choices with great history, too.

Friday of this week past, I came back through Marble Falls after two days in nearby Fredericksburg, and I flirted with the idea of trying another pie. I had to pass it up this time, but it was because I was still full from lunch at another location, and I needed to get back home. But I had German chocolate pie on my mind. I've had German chocolate cake before, but I wanted to see what a German chocolate pie would be like, especially the way Bluebonnet would make it. Banana?? Coconut?? Okay, probably not with German chocolate.

It'd be a safe bet that, in the future, I'll make my way back to Marble Falls. Along with great river scenery, you can bet that a slice of German chocolate pie would be in my offing.

    To note, that building which houses Bluebonnet Cafe is so dangerously close to Highway 281 that you'd have to hope a car doesn't go out of control and into said building. It's that close.

    Also to note, Bluebonnet dates all the way back to 1929. I doubt they were in their current building at the time, and it looks like something built in the 1950s or '60s. I'd have to find that out. Almost 100 years old for them.

    LOL. Sometimes, you do come across some oddities on your plate. I can't imagine chocolate on top of banana cream.

    Although that might not be a bad idea.
