I live in Phoenix and will be traveling with my Girlfriend to her family's home for Thanksgiving and could use help with a couple things.
1. Nicole and I are big believers in eating local and would like to prepare a meal for her family that contains ingredients produced within 250 miles of Houston. We are planning on doing this a couple days after the meal and leftovers are consumed. I can do this in Phoenix but am relatively clueless as to how I can do this in Houston. Nicole's sister has volunteered to secure any of the ingredients that we would have a hard time getting over a holiday weekend. You all are by far my best resource for this so help me out please.
2. Her family lives in Clearlake and we want to find a couple of great casual places to take them out for lunch or dinner. We will have a rental car and have no problem driving 45 minutes to an hour if you all think it is worth it.
