Queso from Torchy’s Tacos in Austin, Texas.


Stir Fried Veggies


Had a bunch of chopped up veggies in the fridge, so I stir fried them.

Spicy Shrimp Pizza


Broiled shrimp, roasted red and yellow bell peppers, roma tomatoes, chili oil, fresh cilantro, mozzarella, parmesan cheese and crushed red chilis

Green Chile Pork Taco


This is a Green Chile Pork Taco from Torchy’s Tacos in Austin, Texas. It has slow-roasted pork carnitas simmered with green chilies and topped with queso fresco. They serve it with tomatillo sauce on a fresh corn tortilla. Good stuff!

BBQ Chicken Pizza


A pizza made with chicken, BBQ sauce, tomato slices, purple onion and cilantro.

Brussel Sprouts


Brussel sprouts from last night’s dinner. They were quartered, seasoned and baked on a cookie sheet. We added a little fresh squeezed lemon to them when served.

Old Cuban


The drink with which I toasted my friend, Jana’s, birthday. Good times and good drink. This was served at Dive Bar & Lounge in Austin, Texas.  According to the menu, an Old Cuban had gold rum, sugar, fresh lime juice, fresh mint and Cava.  I could have sworn I saw the bartender slip in some Worcestershire Sauce, but don’t quote me on that.
