Weeklyish Recap: Extremely Late Edition

Yeah okay this time I have no excuse. Writing has just been difficult lately.

That's 10 courses, six of which were desserts. DON'T TELL ME WRITERS DON'T WORK HARD! 

Thank you Hayden (of Austin Food Magazine) for this picture during the Eden East dinner that captures my true elegance.

We are not too close, right?’ He said, ‘No, we are just two pilgrims along the way, traveling together for a while.’” Seriously. Someone said that to another person and then they got married.

How God Created Animals - These always make me chuckle.
