This past Tuesday night, October 6, 2015, was National Night Out Against Crime in Central Texas. A handful of our sweet, long-time neighbors always organize some form of a block party for the event. For the last several years, our small celebration has been hosted by a generous neighbor who happens to have a huge yard on a corner lot that easily accommodates a crowd.
It's typically a potluck-style party, and this year was no different. Some people brought a variety of meats, including smoky, barbecue chicken, ribs and brisket. Other folks contributed a few types of grilled sausages. And for side dishes, there were some spicy, homemade, borracho-style pinto beans, Mexican rice, green beans and bread.
