  1. Just got back. OMG what a place. My favorite samples, of all things, the Pizza Inn slices. More to come, will gather my thoughts and report first thing Monday morning.

    Thanks again Nancy!

  2. It’s probably been 11 years since I have been to the Dallas Convention Center, and the look has changed since my last visit. With that said, the Southwest Food Expo was awesome. Rows and rows of exhibitors giving you food samples, and if you made it to the “over 21” aisle, shots of alcohol. Since I was driving, I only had half of a margarita. Believe me, that was enough. Watching the pizza contest, I recalled my first job at age 16; working at the Pizza Inn in Pantego. The V-P at Pizza Inn said he has heard that many times; I then remembered they fired me because I got mononucleosis and the health department wouldn’t let me work. The samples at the Pizza Inn booth were definitely my favorite. The line for Herschel Walker’s autograph grew long and it was a treat to meet the former Heisman winner. After 2 plus hours of walking around this Expo, I left with my bag of goodies and headed back to Denton County.

    Thank you Nancy for arranging this!
