It’s National Coffee Day, and We’re All Thankful

It’s Monday morning, and it’s National Coffee Day (and, in a fateful alignment of the stars, International Coffee Day). The latter fact makes the former one bearable, maybe even pleasant.

Check around, lots of places will have free coffee today. Get it while you can! Few things beat free caffeine.

I always have half a cup first […]

The Usual Hot Dog Follies, With a Twist (It Has a Nice Ring to It)

It’s Fourth of July, and guess what? Nathan’s held a hot dog eating contest! Again! No, really; I’m not kidding…

Joey Chestnut, aka “Jaws,” put away the competition again too. He never looked like he was threatening to beat last year’s record of 69 dogs and buns (his own record, of course), but he was quick […]

Ahoy, Matey! Time for a Barrrrgh-B-Q…

Yep, it’s “Talk Like a Pirate Day” once again. Snuck up on you didn’t it…

Since this is a food blog, let’s talk about what pirates eat (besides BBQ). Pirates like corn. Unless it’s high-priced, like a buccaneer or something. After all, they like to get their food cheap; as in on sail. They’re starving all […]

Father’s Day Follies: Feed the Need for Bacon

Ahh, bacon. Something that makes (nearly all) fathers smile, then drool with anticipation. This weekend has Father’s Day as an excuse to give all of us fathers the lavish gives we crave celebration as the major excitement available, unless you’re entered in the Lake Pflugerville Triathlon. So how about combining the two: Bacon and Father’s […]

Bring Out the Cheesy Stuff: It’s National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day

For a quick meal, there’s not much better than a hot, viscous grilled cheese sandwich. At least in my book. And today’s the day to celebrate that great American invention! (I’m claiming it for the home team because I can’t find references anywhere in Google to this morsel’s origination.) (Correction: Here’s a reference, and yes, […]

Where to Eat Brunch in Austin (Maybe for Easter)

Eater Austin regularly lists the best places to feast at brunchfast time (and yes, that’s still one of my seven favorite meals of the day). Their March update can be found here. I think a good number of these places will be open for Easter brunch, but be sure to call ahead and confirm. Several […]

Happy New Year! Let’s Make 2013 Special…

Here’s a great way to start the New Year: Visiting relatives-to-be and messing up their kitchen before going home…

We trekked off to Florida over the weekend, to be with Kai’s family in sunny Florida. We arrived on Sunday, then picked Jess and Kai up in Tampa the next afternoon. No sooner had we gotten over […]
