Book Review:This is Texas, Y’all The Lone Star State from A to Z by Misha Msynerick Blaise

#TexasStrong if you want to learn a little bit of Texas trivia then This is Texas, Y’all The Lone Star State from A to Z by Misha Msynerick Blaise is a pretty good place to start.  

The author tells a lot about Texas history and all things Texas.  She gets most of it right.  The only two things we see where she may be wrong are both food related.  

Texans can be very opinionated and fanatic about a lot of things like football.  However, when it gets down to barbeque and chili, there are many opinions about what is real Texas and what isn’t.

For some, chili is not chili without beans. It has been pointed out that chili without beans is chili sauce and that chili does not have to contain meat. That is why we have the term Chili Con Carne.  

Some would argue that barbecue without sauce is not barbeque.  Some would argue over mustard-based sauce versus ketchup-based sauce, etc.  The only real consensus we have found over barbeque is that it is slow roasted meat.  One does not barbeque steaks, hamburgers, or hotdogs.  You grill those.

With those two things being the only places we disagree with this author, we must say that This is Texas, Y’all! captures most of what is truly Texas.

This book is well-researched and very well-written.  The illustrations are colorful and cute. We give it all five stars.  This would make a great gift for that wannabe Texan on your Christmas list.

  1. Football and barbecue are really the only things worth strong opinions. We ate barbecue from the Corkscrew in Spring, Texas and it is heaven!

    1. If you every get to Wharton, Texas, you should try Taste Wood's Barbecue. It is the best beef barbecue I have ever tasted and the best barbecue on the west side of the Mississippi.

      If you ever get to Anderson, South Carolina, you should try Little Pigs Barbecue. It is the best chicken and pork barbecue you will find, anywhere.

      As far as football is concerned, college ball is much better than pro ball. There is more spirit.

      Have a great week.
