Austin Bound

The Wife and I have hit the road--or the air, as it were--to Austin, Texas, to visit my steenky leetle seester and my `rents.

I haven't taken any pictures yet, so no Postcards from Austin.

GASTRONOMICAL JOURNAL: So far today I've eaten a piece of pizza at 4 a.m. before driving to the airport, one and a half packs of cheese & crackers on our flight from Atlanta to Austin (which is Delta airlines version of a breakfast feast), a migas taco and a breakfast taco at Kerbey Lane Cafe in Austin, a Kevin Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato at the Alamo Drafthouse while watching No Country for Old Men. This sandwich had an irresponsible amount of bacon on it, which was impossible to contain within the confines of two mere pieces of bread. Throughout my meal, it kept falling out the sides of the sandwich and raining down into my food tray. It's the kind of problem I like to have, though, so I didn't mind. I also drank a $5 milkshake, (it's a pretty fudgin' good milkshake; I don't know if it's worth $5, but it's pretty fudgin' good) and ate chips and salsa. Later I ate a peanut butter & jelly sandwich and some chips with a Sam Adams Scotch Ale, as well as various snacky things around my sister's apartment.

Good times.

I'm jealous. You have to go to Taco Cabana and Magnolia Cafe!

Hope you enjoy your stay. Austin is certainly a fun town to visit. But, I am afraid there will be a price, a very unpleasant price at that, to pay for your Gastronomical Journey. And we, your loyal readers, will be subjected to the gory details.
But, hey, have fun!

Sounds like you're doing quite well for yourself, Juice! When we flew to Colorado, we had delays with every leg of our flights, so we had to run to our connection and didn't have time to eat. So we subsisted all day on TINY little bags of airline nuts. However we made up for it while we were staying in CO for Christmas. Take a peek at my blog for more details and pictures:
