Sunday Brunch at Ouisie's Table

In lieu of our typical early start, we headed out a bit later than usual this Sunday. My husband is a chicken-fried steak fanatic and we had heard that Ousie's Table makes a good one. We got a table and settled in for more of an early Sunday supper than our usual weekend brunch fare.

Though the brunch menu offers some decidedly decadent dishes along with a good array of egg entrees, salads, sandwiches and such, we both opted for some basic southern lunches.

He kept to his plan and ordered the Chicken Fried Steak & The Works which comes with a black peppercorn milk gravy, served on the side, with mashed potatoes and mustard greens. He was pleased with his choice. The crunchy exterior, tender meat and creamy gravy was all in place.

I ordered the Oyster Po-Boy. It came on a toasted baguette with blue cheese, coleslaw, jalapeƱo tartar, tomato slices and it is served
with parmesan fries. The unique mix of toppings and the good amount of oysters was delicious and quite filling. I enjoyed it with a glass of sparkling wine.

He then ordered a Key Lime pie to top off his meal with some coffee, I got to enjoy a bite of this southern favorite which was tasty and reasonably sized.

The Brunch menu looks promising at Ousie's Table, I am sure we will be back to explore it further!

The Light Inside at The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston

The Wilson Tunnel was created sixteen years ago to link the two exhibition buildings at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.

The Light Inside is a permanent display within the tunnel built by American artist James Turrell who pioneered the light and space movement in the mid-1960s. It was commissioned by and donated to the museum by Isabel and Wallace Wilson.

In this installation artwork, neon and ambient light are used to create an ethereal passageway to contemplate the relationship of light and space.
