Since the time change the weather has been a perfect mix of being mild at sunset with touch of a chill later at night. Without a doubt, early spring is one of my favorite times of the year in San Antonio. I really have tried to take advantage of it by geocaching, patio drinking, and hanging outside.
- My Lenten journey of cutting down the number of times I eat out has really taken a toll on the amount of opportunities I have to get content for the blog. I did eat at Chayitos last Saturday and was quite full for only $5.49.
- The San Antonio River Foundation is having a RiverTini Pour Off on Thursday, March 31 at 5:00PM at Brasserie Pavil. The cost is $50 per person and not only will you help out a great organization, you will get to sample an assortment of creative martinis from some of the areas top restaurants.
- Fiesta is fast approaching, and I am super excited. I should have an interesting iPhone/iPad app that will crack you up, but more on that this next week… Be sure to check out the official 2011 Fiesta Poster from artist Cecilia Paz Mujica!
- Since I can’t eat out as much, one of the things I have enjoyed cooking has been an egg scramble with mushrooms, spinach, and cheese. To spice it up I have found that adding Sriracha while cooking the eggs make for a great meal!
- Two of my friends made some amazing cupcakes last night to celebrate another friend’s birthday. They were chocolate cake infused with raspberry jam and cream cheese. The recipe will be on the blog soon!
- I had an early morning meeting at work on Wednesday and took in an assortment of chocolate chip, blueberry, cranberry, and sour cream pecan muffins from Broadway Daily Bread. They consistently deliver on their pastries (my favorite is the cranberry), and it didn’t take long for them to disappear.
