Identifying Vegetables in a CSA Box

Just a quick public service post that Johnson’s Backyard Garden‘s website ROCKS! There are other CSA (community supported agriculture) programs in Austin, but my hunger for information makes Johnson’s the best in my book. They post a picture of the contents of their weekly delivery, and when you roll your mouse over each item, it is identified for you!

I recently tried another local CSA and the fruits and veggies came in a box without a list of what was in there. So I went to their website to find the …

Stetted Rocks a Raspberry Tattoo

My obsession with food tattoos continues. Isn’t Megan’s raspberry tattoo gorgeous?! Megan blogs at Stetted, and she invited Adam and I over — well, she posted on Facebook that she had space and we RSVPd — for a berry themed Thanksgiving live webinar and twitter tasting sponsored, in part, by Driscoll’s.
The food was delicious, but for me, this munchkin (Megan’s son), stole the show.
While I don’t think strawberries or raspberries are going to replace cranberries on my Thanksgiving table anytime soon, I did thoroughly enjoy the “holiday berry bellini.”

Evening at TRIO and Facebook Photo Contest Opp

So I’m challenging myself, along with thousands of other bloggers nationwide, to blog every day this month. And I’m asking myself, why didn’t I pick one of the months with 28 days?! Here we are on day 3, and I’m going to attempt a short post.
Last night, Kerri Holden, the PR rep for the Four Seasons Austin, invited me to join her at TRIO for happy hour (note: they picked up the tab). It was a lovely evening complete with drinks on the patio, steak fries, and pulled pork sliders. …

European Trip: Things we wanted to Google

If you’re like me, you are constantly Googling things. I love learning so Google is like crack to me since almost any piece of information I could want is right at my fingertips.
While Adam and I were on our over two week vacation in Europe this September, we decided not to deal with paying for international calls and data charges so we put my iPhone in airplane mode. I’ll write a separate post later on how you can use your smartphone abroad without incurring extra charges, but for now, just …
