Driving through the Texas countryside on our way to Royer’s, it was a beautiful day. The sun was setting, and we saw the sign for Rachel Ashwell’s new B&B, The Prairie.

I really want to see her new place, but we were on a mission, AND we were hungry, AND we were headed to Royer’s.
As we arrived, a blessed cool front was coming through and I thought I might need a sweater before the evening was over. (Now that the temperatures here are firmly in the 90’s, I am still savoring those three days of cool we had with overnights in the 50’s.) Royer’s is on the square in Round Top, right in the middle of all the action. Well, it is amazing how much goes on here in such a small town. I know the sign says “Population 77”, but I have my doubts. I suspect it is over 100 now. I blame it on urban sprawl.

Our server, Lindsey, has been featured on the cover of Texas Coop Power, holding those famous Royer’s pies. You may not have heard of the magazine, but we have a subscription that apparently we get, since we use an electricity coop service. I love the magazine, since it is a slice of rural life.
Lindsey says it is not a good picture of her, and I do agree that she is much more adorable in person, but that is because you get to enjoy her bubbly personality.
