We had to cancel the trip to Texas. Our plane to Denver never made it from Denver last night. It seemed that Denver was completely snowed in. The airline tried to reschedule us to the shuttle to Salt Lake, then to Houston and Austin. In the effect we would be at 10 pm the earliest in Fredericksburg. We decided to give it a pass, since John has a condition which makes it difficult to travel. So we are going to have fish, borscht and uszka (ears - dumplings with dry mushrooms)
Below is a nice video from Ania's kitchen:

I am very sorry of your loused luck with the Airlines, with this, how well do I understand yours and Johns reasoning, for that would have been a complicated trips. Some times there is a reason for every thing, perhaps in time,this may come to light of those complications.
I had forgot about fish, I do like fish, but the fish here is not fresh from the sea. The fish markets do the best they can, but when the fish has not the smell of the sea, best to eat some thing else..
Your red Borscht should hit the spot in this winter chill. Whilst working in the Seattle area, there were some very nice Russian restaurants. A big bowl of their Red Borscht and a thick slice of grey bread sure hit the spot to cure hunger by.
yes, red borscht is great. What are you eating for Christmas in Pueblo? I was surprised to hear that Latino people eat meat for Christmas... I thought that the religion confines them to eating fish, like we do in Europe... but I guess local traditions prevail. Especially as you said, the local markets where you are don't provide a fresh fish
