Good Afternoon. I know I'm late posting, however we didn't arrive home from Austin until the wee hours of the morning. No recipes today, just a review--one weekend in Austin.
We visited the Longhorn stadium, hey we're BIG college football fans, so that was a must. We were surprised with a special treat. It was graduation day and in honor of the graduates, BEVO came for a visit. This is the school mascot and I was lucky to get a bit on film.
For us, eating is always part of the experience of travel. We love the company of family and friends, the sights are great but the food and local culture are enjoyable.
Book People. And of course I picked me up something for my office, already hanging on my wall! But I also wanted to buy a night shirt that said "Oh dear I just bought a pile a books" the entire front is filed with stacks of books and a girl reader is sitting on top of one. I asked if I could buy it on line (cause Ron said, you do not need that--which is true) and now I can't find it on their site. GRRRR.
We went down 6th street and visited some bars, of course. You can't go to Austin and not do that.
Music came out of every door, the streets a cacophony of sounds as you walk down the side walk. The city is clean--I love that. We didn't visit a concert, we were too busy meeting everyone and seeing the local spots.
We had the best food there. I am not sure of the exact names of the dishes we ate, but delicious non-the-less and yes I will be experimenting trying to come up with my own recipes.
Sorry we were a bit messy...
Heart House) and they went on a field trip to The Oasis. Ferrari was having a show, and the kids got to see the cars and have lunch. We went to visit also. The food was spectacular, and reasonable. I took one look at the place and thought- oh,oh here comes our splurge for the trip, Nada! Very reasonable priced.
But the food.... Let me just tell you-- yes I will have my own recipes soon. AND I'm going to try to contact someone there for an interview, can't promise that though.
Our son had Ahi Tuna Salad--You can check out the menu section from the link I posted above for any descriptions.
And we mustn't miss out on dessert--Key Lime Pie
