Country Fried Pflugerville

6 Oct

It’s been a long couple of weeks, with me traveling eyeball deep in work and the Mister suffering through two root canals and a tooth extraction. Despite having just come off the heels of a delicious Austin Restaurant Week (more on that later), I decided to treat him to dinner as a way of saying thanks for holding down the household duties… mostly. I mean yes, it’s a mess, but he didn’t burn the joint down; he even went to the grocery store a couple of times and bought actual food and necessary toiletries, instead of bubble gum, M&Ms and tube socks.

Anyway, I had a $40 gift card and asked him to choose where he wanted to go. After tossing around a few places, he settled on an old favorite of his, Springhill Restaurant in Pflugerville. Needless to say, it was a stark change of pace from Wednesday, when A and I finished up restaurant week at the heavenly Foreign & Domestic. But what Springhill lacked in sophistication and geographic desirability, it more than made up for in pure, unadulterated deliciousness.
