All Tacos deserve their own book but this goes double for Breakfast Tacos.

Today is National Taco Day! I love tacos, tacos are my favorite. Breakfast tacos, Torchy’s Tacos, soft tacos from forking Taco Bell, Taco casserole, Taco Salad. Tacos win. Have some tacos for dinner.

Also get this book about Austin Breakfast Tacos. It’s important. (There’s also a book about Queso…)

I am so fricking hungry.

My super talented and creative friend Laura Fisk of Fisk & Fern is THIS MINUTE creating a Breakfast Taco tea towel for you to add to your extensive tea towel collection. (I KNOW I’m not the only one with an extensive tea towel collection… right?) Anyways. When she releases it I’mma put it up here. So watch this space. And in the meantime here’s Queso and Margaritas. Which are the perfect bookends for tacos.

I want to talk about Brian Phillips, this is his sticker that I stole from his website where you can go buy one, or 7, and also some Beto Stickers that are awesome and ALSO ALSO ALSO.  He perfectly combines my love of so many things into his work. I have three of his “where tacos come from” pieces and they are fan-forking-tastic. I love art, I love texture, I love color (just not wearing it) and I love Tacos. All of those things combine to create Austin.

I love Austin, Texas. I belong there. Even through hundred degree summers I forking THRIVED in Austin. We are flying down tonight and I’m READY.

There are so many things that could be #3 on this Austincentric Favorites list. Obviously my friends. (but I count them in as just being Austin.)  Pluckers, Jack Allen’s Kitchen, Deep Eddy Vodka… but this week it’s the reason why we are going to Austin.

Austin City Limits.   Three days, drinking wine out of sports bottles in a field. Where my friends are. And also all this music, and usually sunshine, and beer, and the most ridiculous food. Right now it is looking like it could be overcast and rainy so I’mma need someone to get Dick Cheney to turn on his weather machine and fix that shirt.

 

 

 

On Wednesdays We Drink Pink.

Until the box was brought into my office just now I had completely forgotten that I ordered Dave and I each our own box of glasses of Rosé from Vinebox. Before Christmas I bought myself their wine Advent calendar and those were delicious, so getting the “Shades of Summer” collection made sense. I love summer, I love wine, I love drinking wine in summer… see? a no brainer.

I support any wine that I can pair with grilled cheese or Doritos

Beautiful! Gorgeous! Wish you were drinking with me!

Vinebox is a monthly subscription box that sends wine by the glass in the coolest glass vials. The part of me that is a giant packaging nerd would probably be thrilled with these shipments even if the wine were only ok. But the wine has been really enjoyable and drinkable so far. Subscriptions to Vinebox are also one of my favorite gifts to give when I have no idea what the heck to get someone and I know they like wine.

I’ve got a $10 discount for anyone who might like to bring some delicious wine in some great product packaging into their lives. 

Other than grilled cheese and Doritos what are things that you would pair with Rosé? All of a sudden all I want is Watermelon & Feta with Mint Salad…

Salud.
