A Hill Country Thanksgiving

Monday, November 9th, 2009

It is almost time for Thanksgiving, a time when friends and families come together to give thanks for the year’s bounty. This is a favorite holiday for many, yet it can be stressful for folks who enjoy gathering together many people but don’t feel up to the task of hosting.

Why not go horseback riding to your Thanksgiving Feast?

Why not go horseback riding to your Thanksgiving Feast?

If this sounds like you, why not come to the edge of Texas Hill Country and let someone else take care of Thanksgiving for you. Our Houston fine dining restaurant, Caraol’s at Cat Spring, will be serving a traditional Thanksgiving buffet from 11:00 am to 6:00 p.m on November 26, 2009.

The best part is that your whole family – and friends too – can stay at our Houston area bed and breakfast near the restaurant. Work up an appetite before the meal (while others do the cooking for you) by walking around the 600-acre ranch or enjoying trail riding Houston. Enjoy a post-meal rest (while others do the cleaning for you) in your comfortable, private lodging. Get together with extended family and friends when you like, but have your own space to return to when you need a little alone time.

This can be your best Thanksgiving ever. Don’t delay!

Reservations required for the Thanksgiving feast. Call 713-301-3235.

Thanksgiving at our Texas Bed and Breakfast

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

We loved the Holidays! It was a wonderful time to share our dinner table with friends and family while making new friends all the while.

I wanted to take some time to share photos and stories from recent guests that really enjoyed Blisswood, our big-hearted Texas bed and breakfast.

A happy couple at Carol's at Cat Spring Restaurant

This happy couple came to the Ranch for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time celebrating with us! They also made sure to stop by my restaurant, Carol’s at Cat Spring, for their Texas Weekend Getaway. We love, love, love making folks happy out here at Blisswood! That is why I opened the B&B and why I continue to try and make the Ranch the best it can be!

The Thankgiving Turkeyt Shoot at Blisswood Ranch

This is another family that came to stay at the ranch for Thanksgiving. They participated in the Thanksgiving turkey shoot, where we gave away a nice bird for the holiday. What really tickled me was that the girls out-shot the guys! Way to go ladies! (more…)

Rachael Ray for Thanksgiving and More!

Friday, October 10th, 2008

I know its been a while – ok, a REALLY long while – since I updated folks on this blog, but I am back on it and excited to share about our newest claim to fame.

The Every Day With Rachael Ray Magazine featured BlissWood Bed and Breakfast in a full page story in their most recent November publication! We were very excited and flattered to be featured by the up-and-coming celebrity chef.

Rachael featured both our amazing accommodations and the restaurant, Carol’s at Cat Spring, my restaurant. She highlighted that we try and let our guests escape form all the modernity that runs their lives and resume tranquil living, at least for a while!

The story also talked about all our great activities: horseback riding, fishing, hiking and even hot air balloon rides – yep, we have all that and more at the ranch!

The story also highlighted our Thanksgiving menu and activities. We are going to be serving some real special southern dishes, including sweet potato bisque, a roasted turkey of course, roasted suckling wild boar, chorizo and cornbread stuffing, hot and spicy cranberry sauce and more.

The story included the recipe for our chorizo and cornbread stuffing, so you better grab the next copy you see so you can make it for your family. Or find the recipe online at the Everyday with Rachael Ray web site. Unless, of course, you’d rather come and let us do the cooking and cleaning – eat with us! We will be serving the Thanksgiving menu all day.

We’re going to be having some great holiday activities at the ranch this year for Thanksgiving! We’re gonna hold a turkey shoot on the 22nd of November! No real turkeys, only targets, but if you win, you do get a bird for roastin’!

If you can’t wait till Thanksgiving for a little gourmet (and who can?) we will be having a wine pairing evening with Truchard Winery selections at Carol’s restaurant on Wednesday, Nov. 12. Come on in for some fine California wine paired to perfection with our delectable cuisine!
