Wanna see everything I consumed from the time I woke up ‘til dinnertime? Here it is:

Just a cup of espresso and heavy cream.

It wasn’t by choice. Fitbomb and I were in a frenzy getting the Double-Os ready for school before dashing to the airport. It wasn’t until we boarded the plane that I realized I hadn’t eaten anything. But I wasn’t hungry, and was content to sit back and take a nap. Traveling without the little ones is exponentially easier, and it felt unbelievably decadent to fly in peace.

When we arrived in Texas, the two of us tooled around downtown…

….and explored the University of Texas at Austin. 

Evidently, the balls in Texas are HUGE.

At dinnertime, we headed to Hill Country and ate at Salt Lick with Melicious and her hubby, Dave.

We ordered our ‘cue family-style and gobbled up heaps of smoky brisket, ribs, and sausage…

…cole slaw…

…and potato salad.

We skipped the beans and the bread but I’m sure we ingested copious amounts of sugar and canola oil.

Back off Paleo police – Mel’s just kidding around!

The heaping piles of meat were delicious, and kept coming…

…but the laughs and conversation were even better.

Afterwards, we headed to our Paleo party house, where we joined a crew of our fellow cave nerds in deep conversation about the usual: camera equipment, bad squid, and fermented cod liver oil.

Tonight, I finally met the George, the Civilized Caveman, and he’s a big sweetheart. For the next few days, we’ll be staying with Bill & Hayley, Diane, Laura, Diana, Bobby, Stacy, and Liz – all under one roof. Paleo craziness will ensue, you can count on it. We might even stay up past 9 p.m.!

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
