Monday, after tamale making day, I had one of Addie’s veggie tamales for breakfast. I spent the afternoon in the Emergency Room at Seton with my mom, (she’s OK) and then attended a Foodways Texas launch event at Lambert”s. I’m excited about Foodways Texas, an organization dedicated to celebrating local food traditions. We watched a short film about a couple who makes sorghum, and I found it very interesting. After the event, I had a couple pieces of fried shrimp and some green chile queso. For a late night snack, I had an El Milagro flour tortilla (I picked them up with the husks) with my leftover green chile pork.
Tuesday, I didn’t go into work. Long story. But, I found the Mexican Street Corn, brought by Stephanie, in my fridge, and ate some of that for breakfast. No lunch, then dinner was a preview party at the second of the restaurants by the chef at Parkside, Shawn Cirkiel. Backspace, is a cozy spot behind Parkside, that focuses on Neapolitan Pizza. The pizza was traditional Neapolitan and was delicious, and although similar to Bola Pizza, I think Bola’s crust wins every time. Hope it works out for them, it is a great spot. Backspace opens next week.
