I've had a busy week

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

I've been over-indulging in everything I love this past week, including the following:

Tex-Mex breakfast in bed - huevos rancheros, refried beans, potatoes and homemade tortillas on our first morning in San Antonio (yes, there was complimentary champagne, too).


Beef and Chicken nachos on the Riverwalk (beef always wins), complete with the tastiest Herradura margarita I've ever tasted!


The Mexican Plate (cheese enchilada, beef taco, tamale, rice and beans) at Mi Tierra - man, this place is so good.


Honey-smothered sopapillas for dessert.


Breakfast at Joe's Bakery, starting with Menudo and amazing (constantly refilled!) coffee, ending with a delicious carne guisada taco. YUM!


Sushi with friends at Maiko - downtown Austin. The crab-filled fried avocado with habanero sauce was TO. DIE. FOR. I've dreamt about it ever since.


Whataburger. Just like I like it.


Mom's homemade tortillas - I still get the little one...this time in a heart shape!
Guillaume pretending he had something to do with the creation of the delicious goodness that is my mom's tortilla. It was still a sweet thought.


Being around the two cutest faces in the world.


Celebrating with the whole family.


I'll blog about more specifics of our trip soon. It was such a fun week, but much too short. I wish I could have brought everyone back to Paris with me. There's never enough time to catch up, but I guess that just means I'll have to make more trips back!

It was lovely to see you of course! How come every time I see you I am for some reason WAY too intoxicated. Bertrand told me I apparently told you all about my book, which I don't remember AT ALL. Curiouser and curiouser.

I promise to eat all the tex mex I can for you, d'accord?
