I just got back from vacay in the dirty south…Brownsville, Texas (the southernmost tip of the state...and my hometown). Sure—not as exciting as Jamey’s biker rally in Austin, but I did enjoy visiting family and helping my grandmother celebrate her big eight-oh!
Here are some highlights from the trip:
Vegan flour tortillas made with coconut oil - Yum!
(Thanks, Mr. and Mrs. Casanova!)
Michael and Erica (my bro and sis-in-law) brought me some sweet gifts from Spain.
Check out my new PINK TIE!!!
And some Chocoreale! It's like Nutella, only better...because it doesn't contain milk!
The best corn tortillas in the world are from Capistran's.
I used these torts to make more of this simple dish :)
I stopped by Daily Juice in Austin on the way back.
So now that I'm back in Dallas, I want to share some fun news with y'all. Dallas Vegan is now a content partner on Pegasus News. And even more exciting - we've scored ourselves a Drew! That's right - the same Drew we know and love from Vegan Eats Dallas is the newest contributor on Dallas Vegan. Keep your eyes peeled for Drew's "First-Look" at a new Asian eatery in town...
Leave a comment here welcoming Drew to Dallas Vegan for a chance to win a jar of Hazelnut Chocoreale. The winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Monday, July 20, 2009.
Good luck ;)
