I wish I had some epic vacation to recap for you. Perhaps a European adventure, a Napa valley wine tasting excursion, or even a trip to San Antonio since it's not even that far away from my new city of Austin. But alas, things have been a bit ho-hum around here. My life has been in a bit of a rut lately until this past week and thus I did not have quite as much inspiration to write. Luckily I'll be digging myself out of that rut very soon. Details at the end of this post...
Like life, I notice that my urge to write on this blog may come and go with a change in the wind. Today, the wind is happily flitting along in a direction that makes me want to put down some words onto Enticing Healthy Eating. Let's get to it, then, shall we?
While I'm a healthy eater by nature, I still have a sweet tooth to rival candy-craving children on Halloween night. So where else were to sweet-loving food bloggers to meet than some well-known desserts specialty restaurants around town? Jessica and I both have a list a mile long of restaurants we want to visit in Austin. It's difficult to keep up with this city--I swear they open up another restaurant every other day.
The first place on our list was Sweet Ritual. Sweet Ritual specializes in vegan ice cream creations. Their ice cream was excellent! So creamy and flavorful. I went with the Sockeye Monkey Sundae with Unicorn Poop Ice Cream while Jess went with Cinnamonkey Elephantastic and Toasted Coconut ice cream with chocolate chips. Two thumbs up for Sweet Ritual.
I went for the blueberry peach, apple, and bourbon buttermilk pies while Jess picked out the key lime, coconut cream, and lemon meringue. Once again, two thumbs up. Wade's stepfather even texted me the next day and asked if I could take him to the Tiny Pies shop when Wade's parents come to visit us in Austin. You got it, Rick!
I also have some fantastic news...
I'm starting a new job on Monday! I am thrilled/excited/nervous/anxious. I have a feeling this is going to be a great job opportunity. I feel like I'm going to my first day of the new school year. I'll take the added bonus of the paycheck that a job brings, though.
Have a great weekend!
