Thanksgiving at Hyatt Lost Pines - 2010
Until recently, I thought everything that happened at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort and Spa was only for hotel guests. I was wrong. Not only can you dine at some of their excellent restaurants, but you can play golf at the Wolfdancer Golf Course, go horseback riding at Renegade Trailhead, or practice your archery skills at White Lightning Ranch, among many other things open to locals and guests alike. Something else open to us locals is a delicious, all-you-can-eat Thanksgiving buffet. It's a little expensive, but if you don't like to cook or just don't want the stress of cooking and cleaning up on Thanksgiving day, then this may be a great option for you!
The Thanksgiving feast consists of traditional Thanksgiving dishes to non-traditional, locally inspired cuisine. Some of the traditional dishes include Butter Based Turkey, Corn Bread Stuffing, Giblet Gravy, Sweet Potato Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Country Rolls and Pumpkin Pie. Other mouth-watering items include Oysters on the Half Shell, Dr. Pepper Glazed Ham with Red Onion Jam, and Slow Roasted Prime Rib of Beef au jus and Creamy Horseradish Sauce. And a Thanksgiving meal is not complete until you've had dessert! They'll have Pumpkin and Pecan Pie, Apple Brown Betty, White Chocolate Croissant, Bread Pudding, Dulce de Leche Cheesecake, Carrot Cake, and more. To see the complete Thanksgiving Menu, click here. Am I the only one getting hungry?
The buffet begins at 11am and lasts until 4pm. It costs $47 for adults, $24 for children 4-12, and is complimentary for children 3 and under. The Hyatt Lost Pines Resort and Spa is located at 575 Lost Pines Road in Lost Pines, TX. To make a reservation for your family, call 512-308-4860.
