Lunch at La Traviata Italian Bistro in downtown Austin, Texas.  I love most any kind of pasta alla puttanesca.

Ruben Fries

I had never noticed the Ruben Fries on the menus at Frank. Wow. You know it’s going to be good when the waiter and the server get excited about what they’re bringing you.  Basically, you’ve got waffle fries, topped with sauerkraut, corned beef, Swiss cheese and thousand island dressing.  Amazing.  Glad I was splitting these with a friend or I would have eaten them all.  BTW, this is a “small” size.

Waffle Bownies

My wife and son made some waffle brownies (brownies made in a waffle iron instead of baking them–brilliant!) to bring to a friend’s party last night. If you’re like me, you try to get a corner piece of a brownie, because you like the edges. Making brownies in a waffle iron makes every bite an edge piece. How cool is that?!
