Vanished Restaurant you miss most

Down here in Clear Lake area we seriously miss Sonny's Crazy Cajun and South Shore Beer Garden. Use to love the breakfast at El Nopolitas in Galveston.

What is unique in Houston?

No more Crazy Cajun. Mysteriously disappeared several years ago. Mamacita's on Nasa Rd 1 is raved about but I have not gone there yet. Love Masa Sushi on Nasa Rd 1.

Fiesta Mart? also, Veg suggestions?

James, I was friends with Ronnie McNair - a brilliant man, lost in the Challenger accident. That added to my angst when Mike went up on the Endeavour. It was a 2 am launch. It was truly a bucket list moment. Went as an invitee of the astronaut so we were on KSC.

Fiesta Mart? also, Veg suggestions?

Living just minutes from the Johnson Space Center for 30 years I indeed have friends that have floated in space! Was fortunate enough to see one safely launced on the STS123 shuttle flight. Still mad Houston did not get a shuttle - although we did get a great replica that is even more visitor friendly.

Now back to the subject of vegetarian restaurants. One just a short trip up Montrose - Baba Yaga is fav for my vegetarian daughter.

foods you ate as a kid (or young adult) that you wouldn't eat now?

I actually liked liver and onions as a kid - now the thought of eating an animal organ makes me gag.

What is your "go to" meal when there is too much month left at the end of the paycheque - past or present

My mom made Macaroni and Tomatoes - still a family favorite amongst siblings. Not so much with spouses.

She also stuffed hot dogs with cheese and broiled them.

Chicken and dumplings.....lots of broth.
