What I did for my summer vacation

5 Jul

You’ve probably been wondering where we’ve been the last couple of weeks, right?  Well, Two Chicks went on vacation!  Ok, so we didn’t go together but we went nonetheless.  I enjoyed a long weekend in San Diego with the hubby while B road-tripped with a friend to Crested Butte, Colorado.  And yes, we were aiming to get away from the current hellfire temperatures of Austin so don’t judge us because we know you were thinking the same thing. It’s sometimes hard to enjoy a meal when you’re sitting on the surface of the sun.

We hope you didn’t miss us too much because we’ve got some great meal-time adventures to share.

And in honor of B’s road trip, I’d like to share a list of regional delights from my own rambling adventures earlier this year:

1) Virginia –  Route 11 Potato Chips makes awesome Dill Pickle flavored chips.

2) Raleigh, North Carolina – Though a franchise, The Flying Biscuit Cafe feels like grandma’s house albeit a hip, Southern grandma.

3) North Carolina – Cheerwine – a delicious, highly caffeinated soda.  Rumor has it this soda contains more caffeine than Mountain Dew, which makes it perfect for road trips.

4) Northampton, Massachusetts – Dream-worthy pancakes can be had at The Green Bean, not to mention bottomless coffee. They even let you choose your own mug!

5) Northampton, Massachusetts – For healthy and delicious eats, Paul & Elizabeth’s is where it’s at.

Two Chicks wishes fun, safe travels to our readers, and reminds you to pack those drawstring pants, load up on antacid and get your eats on. We’ll be back soon with a full recap of all our fun!

Happiness is a Full Belly: boudin

12 May

If you thought this was the type of blog to only direct you to fancy, high falutin’ type restaurants, think again. Austin Restaurant Week is over, but that doesn’t mean we are! Happiness is a Full Belly is the first in a series of regular entries about the tastiness to be found in our own kitchens. Entries might include a recipe, a dish at an office potluck or a surprise package of goodness found in the back of the freezer, behind an over-sized bag of green beans.

Yes, you read that correctly. Tonight, I happened upon some frozen boudin from Savoie, courtesy of our neighbor. For the nine months the Mister and I have lived here, he’s come to our door bearing food. Why? I’ve no clue, but who am I to refuse? So far nothing has poisoned us, nor has he asked us to become covert drug mules — so overall, I’m good with it.

gimme more!
