Austin Eats

Wednesday night my son had a late basketball game so I reheated the last of the One-Pot Cheesy Italian Chicken and Pasta for dinner before we left.

I need to make another pot of this soon.

Thursday’s breakfast:

After I took the kids to school I went to the gym. I ran some errands and went to Napizza for lunch.

Greek Quinoa Salad. Really delicious. 

We went to dinner that night at Firenze. I had the Spaghetti and Chicken Meatballs.

I brought two of the meatballs home and stuck them in the freezer for another night. 

Friday morning we were up extra early to catch our flight to Austin, Texas for my nephew’s Bar Mitzvah weekend. I ate toast with peanut butter before heading out the door. 

On the plane I had a turkey and gouda sandwich:

After we arrived, we checked into the Westin downtown then walked to Iron Cactus for lunch. Our lunch started with table side guacamole.

Pretty good. It’s hard to screw up table side guac. 

I ordered the fish tacos which weren’t that great.

I ate one of the tacos then focused on the guacamole. 

That evening we went to Cooper’s BBQ for the Friday Night Dinner for the Bar Mitzvah. We were treated to a barbecue buffet that had all the fixings!

After I ate my weight in barbecue, we went back to the hotel and called it a night.

Saturday morning we got dressed and headed to the temple for the Bar Mitzvah. On the way we stopped at Starbucks and grabbed breakfast. I had the Reduced Fat Turkey Bacon Sandwich.

Lol. Gotta try everything!

We came back to the hotel and I went to the gym. 

That evening was the party for my nephew. It was sports themed and had all the food you’d associate with a tailgate. 

Chips, queso, seven-layer dip:

I basically tried everything. Pizza, chicken and waffles, mac n cheese, meatloaf, veggies and dip, etc.

Good thing I went to the gym!! 

Yesterday morning there was a farewell brunch catered by Taco Deli. There were all sorts of breakfast tacos to try.

I enjoyed three of them. :)

It was back to the gym after that. 

Dinner was at my bother in law and sister in law’s house. They brought in Tex-Mex from Chuy’s. I had a couple of tacos that looked like this:

And some cake that looked like this:

We said our goodbyes and went back to the hotel.

Breakfast this morning was via room service. Egg white omelet with arugula salad. I think it was time for some greens in my diet.

We headed to the airport and flew home. We stopped for lunch at Pei Wei. Well, the husband and the kids did anyway. I picked up the Greek Quinoa Salad from Napizza.

Tomorrow it’s back to some more healthy eats for sure!

What’s in your ideal taco?
