I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I did. This is one of my favorite holidays. Just food, friends, family, and fun (and drinks).
Here’s a little peek at my day (all iphone photos)…
This guy is a vegan.. but he smokes an awesome brisket.
Homemade potato chips
I was told this is a tomahawk, not an axe..
Earlier this year, I popped over to Foreign & Domestic to shoot some behind the scenes photos for them of prep work in the kitchen. They have an open kitchen anyways, so it was fun to hang around by the counter and watch the chefs work their magic. I love that time in a restaurant before there are any diners in, and there is the hustle of getting everything done before opening time. It also reminds me of how much time and care goes into each dish. Those babies aren’t thrown together, it takes a lot of melding of flavors, and getting everything just right.
Here are a few photos, you can see more on their website!
A while back, a great restaurant closed. SPIN Modern Thai.
As I continue to mourn the loss of this yummy restaurant, I share with you some photos I took for Citygram that sadly never got to be published due to the closing of the restaurant.
This past weekend I attended Austin City Limits Festival. Thankfully, we went weekend 1, cause today (during weekend 2) the festival got rained out, so everyone attending weekend two unfortunately missed out on the fantastic bands that played on Sunday.
Apart from almost passing out twice from dehydration and having to visit the medical tent, this year was a success! I ate delicious food and hit up some favorites (Noble Sandwich Co, Frank and Peached Tortilla), and got to see a bunch of great bands including The National, Junip, Atoms for Peace, The Joy Formidable, Franz Ferdinand, Local Natives…. etc.. etc…
Here are some of the photos I took with my iphone during the 3 days of the festival last weekend…
