Crab Enchiladas

I had dinner at South Congress Cafe last night!  I’ve only been there for brunch so it was nice being able to try out their dinner menu. The enchiladas were just okay but the toffee in that dessert was awesome!

Restaurant Week! Yummy for my Tummy!

29 Sep

It’s restaurant week in Austin and a few girlfriends and I went to the Driskill Hotel last night. They had a pretty extensive menu to choose from compared to some of the other restaurants. Here’s what I had!

sundried tomato brioche & wheat bread with apricot, walnuts, and pecans

cinnamon peach smoothie

Texas Raised Rabbit Confit Thigh, Grilled Figs, Butter Roasted Heirloom Carrots, Wild Fennel Pollen.

Grilled "Strube Ranch" Wagyu Flatiron

French Baked Apple Tart

Overall, presentation of the food and service were very good.  It was a great dinner and I would go again!

I came in this morning and found these on my desk! LOVE LOVE LOVE!  Besides my love for Totoro, Hello Kitty runs pretty close behind it!  So am I going to use it? Uh NOOOOoooo…. you crazy… and waste that Hello Kitty cuteness? NO WAY!

Amazing Race, IN YO FACE!

I’m a HUGE fan of Amazing Race. It doesn’t matter if you’re well-traveled, smart, or athletic.  Some things are just out of your control and left to mother nature… like this… Season 17 premiere start this Sunday, September 26th at 8:30 PM EST. Don’t miss out!

Oh My Freakin TOTORO!!!!

So, today’s my birthday so what better time than now to do my first post!  A sweet friend of mine knows I’m a crazy Totoro fanatic (other than Hello Kitty of course) and made me an awesome cake of Totoro’s face! So freakin’ cute! She did such an awesome job! Here’s a pic!
