In Texas qYankeeq is a loose term covering a lot of ground. If you're not a Texan or a southerner, you're a Yankee and therefore, to many Texans, suspect. There are many rites of passage to being a Yankee in Texas: the first time you spot a pickup with a gun rack; the first time you realize that a week is a long time to go without Mexican food; the first time you recognize a change in seasons; your first thunderstorm; your first honky-tonk. Culture Shock in Texas can be intense and is exacerbate by local rules of propriety that tell us to keep out mouths shut. But here in this book we are going to talk all about it with good old Yankee outspokenness. We'll clear the air, share experiences, orient newcomers, and have some good laughs.Chicken-fried steak goes best with mashed potatoes, and both must be slathered in white gravy. Sometimes Ia#39;ll meet a friend for lunch and wea#39;ll both order chicken- fried steak and apologize to each other the entire time wea#39;re eating it.
