Wonderfully Weird in Austin

I spent last weekend in Austin and just had to share a few bunch of fun things we saw, tasted and laughed at in that fabulous town!

  
First meal in town... fried pickles & a cold beverage 
 Quinoa & Carrot Salad at Hickory Street
   Hundreds of beautiful boots
   Food trucks on South Congress
Buffalo chicken sandwiches - Jalapeno/onion/cilantro/amazing flavor Sausage - Truffle Oil Fries
 "Welcome to Texas!" 
1) Shoot tequila out of jalapeno 
2) Lick the chili & salt off rim of jalapeno
3) Shoot the rest of the the tequila
4) Feel the burn for a few minutes
 Found at your local Austin 7-11. Look you can even make sushi with it!
GROSS!
 Pickle Shots & Greyhounds
Pickle Shot: Shoot some Tito's vodka, chase it with a glass of pickle juice
Surprisingly delish!
 $2 slices at Home Slice Pizza
Highlight of the trip - Live music all day & couples showing off their dance moves
Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes & Thai Green Beans
(Sorry for the awful lighting but I just had to capture this..)


Visit this city if you can. Highly recommended.

    1. Tammy, you definitely need to try it. I am sure I will bust them out at a summer BBQ soon!
