I think I'm going to do a whole Weekend Cooking post about the Austin foodie experience, but these should hold you over til then.
First is the Magic Shroom burger from Hopdoddy Burger Bar. This was a delicious, juicy beef patty, sauteed field mushrooms, local goat cheese, mayo, basil pesto, and lettuce, tomato, and onion on their homemade bun. I didn't expect magic, really since this burger seemed a little standard to me, but the name was spot on. I also got their parmesan truffle fries, and they were a religious experience.
The other pic is from Piranha Killer Sushi. The front is their lobster roll which is masago, scallions, shrimp tempura, ginger cream, and the whole thing topped with lobster and avocado. The roll in the back is the dancing eel which is crab, cucumber, avocado, with smoked, BBQ eel on top.
After the conference, I spent the better part of Wednesday to yesterday feeling like crap and trying to catch up on all the things. Urgh!
Feeling | Overwhelmed! So much to do at work, for online classes which end May 7, and in preparation for next weekend's READATHON!
Reading | I got a fair bit of reading done in Austin, and I even bought some books! No trip to Austin is complete without a trip to BookPeople, and I picked up Encyclopedia of Early Earth, The President's Hat, and This is How You Lose Her.
I'm behind on my #15in30 goal because of all the travel, but I hope between some upcoming weekends and the Readathon I can reach my goal. Right now I'm finishing off Bad Feminist, by Roxane Gay, and working through This Is How You Lose Her, by Junot Diaz.
