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!

The Mobile Excursion

13 May

I’m so excited about this recent development that I actually started this blog in the car, while the Mister picked up a script from the ghetto Walgreens in Capital Plaza. At my urging, we sought out mmmpanadas, one of the few food trucks that makes it home north of the river.

Anyone who’s lived in Austin more than six minutes knows the almost cult-like hype that surrounds them in this town, and I’m frankly on the fence about whether or not I want to jump on that hipster bandwagon. In order to preserve my dignity, I won’t use any unnecessary punctuation or adjectives, and will refrain from overly dramatic proclamations of deliciousness. Unless I really, really mean them.

gimme more!
