Friday, I had a Bat Creek Farm apple for breakfast then met a group of Yelpers, led my my sweet friend Michelle for a celebratory lunch at La Boite. I had never been and had been wanting to go since it opened. The shipping container is way beyond cool. I see their locally sourced sandwich menu every day on Twitter, and everyone swoons for their macaroons. I had a roast beef and roasted red pepper sandwich which was great, but skipped the sweets.
For dinner, the folks and I went to Corazon and I had a salad and redfish. For dessert, when I got home I picked a watermelon and had a slice.
Day 233, was a busy day. I had a Thunderheart bison taco from Taco Deli at the SFC Farmer’s Market downtown, and picked up a tub of the crack Dona green sauce as well. I’m still trying to eat my way through my freezer, so I just bought coffee at that market, then headed to Barton Creek for milk and Vital Farms Eggs. I’m trying new milk, from Texas Daily Harvest. So far, its great. I got some more of those amazing Tortilla chips and corn tortillas from the vendor I still don’t know the name of. Best chips ever, and I’m a die hard El Milagro fan. So no lunch, but I did have some of those chips with Larry’s Smoked Tomato Salsa from Boggy Creek Farm for an afternoon snack. After running around all day, I stayed in for dinner. I was inspired by watching Anthony Bourdain’s show on Rome, to make pasta carbonara. I used some of the bacon made by a friend, some Texas Pasta Co. pasta, Vital Farms eggs, and Brazos Valley Parmesan. It was not very good. Perhaps I’ll look at a recipe and see what I did wrong.
