Good Morning Sweet Friends,
I wanted to share with you today about a lovely restaurant we have here in the Texas Hill Country … Trattoria Lisina. My family and I recently celebrated my birthday here enjoying a delicious Sunday dinner in a most delightful setting.
Over the last ten years or so, many new restaurants and wineries have popped all over the Hill Country and Trattoria Lisina and the adjacent Duchman Winery standout as real stars.
“Thank you for the wonderful birthday celebration, Honey! I love you soooooooooo much!!”
Our son, Ben, and his Granddad (TJ’s Dad) compare notes as they both enjoy Pollo al Mattone – Chicken cooked “under a brick” – marinated with extra virgin olive oil, rosemary & garlic, cooked in a wood burning oven, under a weight, served with roasted potatoes & a cucumber salad. They both agree… “Yum!”

If you have the chance to visit the Texas Hill Country someday…and I hope you will…be sure to put this restaurant on your list as a must visit. You’ll be glad you did.
*And if you haven’t already guessed … “Le selle la notte sono grandi e luminose nel cuone profodo del Texas” translates…”The stars at night are big and bright deep in the heart of Texas.” This sweet verse from the famous song – extolling the beauty of the Texas night sky – is written on the placemats at Trattoria Lisina.
