tx



I've discovered something about food blogs and graduate school: they're often mutually exclusive. This semester has been manic, but I took today off and spent it in lovely Georgetown, Texas, just north of Austin, meeting a friend's horses, doing some low-level antiquing, eating hamburgers and drinking chocolate shakes at the fabulous Monument Cafe, and taking photos for the first time in weeks and weeks. They make my life look much more pastoral, horse-y and Texan than it really is (as evidence of my inexperience with these things, I managed to shock myself on an electric fence while taking one of these pictures. It felt kind of - snappy).

I have so many delicious things to share with you, including the tasty things I made for Australia Day way, way back in January. Coming soon (because so is Spring Break).

Amazing photos, once again. Good to have you back:) I'm sure blogging on top of school can be quite challenging sometimes! Can't wait to read more about the Australia Day treats:)

I understand how busy it gets when you are in graduate school. But it seems like you had a perfect day to relax. Your photos are awesome and it made me feel like visiting these horses and the cute cafe in Texas. Thanks for sharing your day :-) and good luck with the grad school work!
