Do you live to eat or do you eat to live? Clearly I am a staunch card carrying member of the former, although at times – like after my recent trip to Austin, Texas, I wish I was affiliated with the latter.
The food was fresh, fun and clearly photogenic. From gobbling gourmet donuts from Gordough’s airstream food truck to walking 500 miles for a ‘damn good taco’ at Torchy’s, the parade of food into my mouth was non-stop. Although impressively enough, I ate sensibly (for me, not an average, normal non-food obsessed person) mostly because I wanted to ensure I sample every suggested culinary entity that encompasses the Austin experience.
Although there weren’t enough days and I didn’t pack any expandable waist pants, I do feel (literally, I think I gained 4lbs in 4 days) that I didn’t miss any opportunities to taste what it means to be a Texan.
Now, I need to start a serious salted meat detox…
