  1. I'm booked - American Heart Assn breakfast (at the Austin Country Club - woo hoo!) and then work. Maybe next week? I am off all weekend but am spending saturday boozing along in a Hill Country Wine tour and Sunday recovering at Slapsiefest!
  2. http://www.news8austin.com/content/top_sto...asp?ArID=193352 I am now wanting to go eat a cupcake out of an airstream trailer...
  3. My Jalapenos are gonna set David's butt on fire.... hmmm. That didn't come out right, did it?
  4. Wow, how does one make it onto the Tiffany's list? BTW Austin folks we need to gather and feast together soon.
  5. I sadly have to go attend a graduation in San Marcos tomorrow night. have fun!
  6. Foodie, What they had looked really nice. The presentation is good - all low-profile shelving. And they have a great high-end selection. But honestly, I didn't see much of anything there that you can't find at WF or CM. And I doubt their prices are cheaper, even with the 5% off for paying in cash or debit or check. The cheese island was nice, but not a lot of product. They had 2 slicers for the deli, which was mainly proscutto and appy-type meats as opposed to lunch meat. The only thing I did a direct comparison on was the frozen AMy's organics. The veggie lasagna was $1.50 more than at HEB. ouch! ...wow, just went and read the eG thread. What happened to her at CM? Did her best friend die in the store or something? bitter! So sad at this joyful time of year.
  7. Good selection on the wine/liqouor side. Some good knowledge, but a more industrial feel than Wiggy's which is my favorite. Food side, good selelction but almost zero service. A poor showing in comparison to the alcohol side. Great selection of specialty chocolates, and some yummy looking coffees. --LHG
  8. Had a lady a month or so ago run her car into the front of my work building. She went over 2 curbs and 20 feet of sidewalk, narrowly missed the outside break area (where people were sitting at the time) and took out a 10 foot section of brick wall, knocked the toilets off the wall of the men's room, and the force of the impact knocked items off of wall shelving in the back of the store. She was an older lady who hit the gas pedal instead of the brakes when pulling into the parking spot. She was very disoriented after the incident, don't know if it was due to injuries or just stress. It happens a lot. Just one parking spot over and she would have run over a couple people eating their lunches. We were lucky.
  9. Class was great - Phil has an easygoing style and makes the comfort of the audience his priority. The short ribs were awesome, the world's easiest chocolate brulee got great reviews, and the night started with Rancho Gordo beans which were darn tasty. The pizza was yummy too - I used the dough recipe tonight with my niece and it turned out great! I was the proud recipient of my own bag o' beans. Yum! Definitely a don't miss the next time around. The only thing I found disconcerting was that the "Taste of the California Wine Country" served some non-californian wines?!?!?
  10. Lordy, what a lovely ambition. Wow! I have finally found my ambition in life. Victory is mine! And I usually am one of the Stupids. Like the people in the books that we read in the 2nd grade.
  11. Sorry, I was off watching the Longhorns pound on some team in florescent orange. Central Market is correct. Phil is napavalleyphil and my go-to guy for all things involving CA wine. I will endeavour to avoid speaking in code in the future! --LHG
  12. So if you aren't doing anything Thursday night, come join me in heckling Phil as he teaches at the CM cooking school. Flavors of the California Wine Country I hear that there will be short ribs. If that isn't a good reason to show up, I don't know what is! 458-3068 to make a reservation. 6:30 - 9pm --LHG
  13. But we couldn't get the peeps to stand still. Today I saw marshmallow ghost peeps.
  14. What's the difference / committment for a sponsor? Everything except the adoption? how long would she get to stay if she was sponsored? Does the sponsor provide food/shelter/clothing or just $$$? Oh, and my book name should be Sparky Bourgeois. Don't ask.
