Chronicles of an Awesome (Foodie) Vacation!

So, as I mentioned in my previous post, I am on vacation! Visiting some of my favorite places en route back home, and making sure that I stuff myself silly!

Seriously, my life revolves around food. We have been on vacation for 10 days, and every day is filled with our favorites from the past. The first stop was Toronto. Over Easy breakfast stop, St Lawrence Market, street Hot Dog with all the fixin's, and the Bier Markt. And I cannot forget the great sandwich spread that I detailed in my last blog post. Great times with friends and family.

Next stop was Austin, Texas. Home of Margaritas, Tex Mex, BBQ and everything else, all in excess! As you can see, nothing beats lunch at our favorite spot, Enoteca on South Congress. Unfortunately, my favorite dish of mussels and fries was not available (until October!!), but we enjoyed the antipasti, charcuterie, suppli (fried risotto balls filled with cheese and served with spicy tomato sauce), calamari, and a proscuitto pizza with arugula, egg, and truffle oil. Yum yum yum!

Of course, we also had to stop for Eggs Francisco at Kerby Lane. This breakfast favorite is composed on English Muffins topped with scrambled eggs, tomato, avocado, bacon and queso (melted cheese dip). Served with choice of 2 sides (we chose home fries and fruit....gotta be healthy).

We also saved room for Dim Sum up north at Shanghai, coffee at Jo's, drinks at the Hula Hut, tons of tex mex favorites, and of course, BBQ at Salt Lick in Driftwood!

Only 10 days in, and I can feel my waistline expanding and my smile getting wider. This is just the start of an amazing vacation!
