First, an update on the butter rum pound cake I told you about here. On Doug's birthday right before serving the cake I whipped up the bananas foster sauce and had a blast torching it right before serving. It turned out fabulously so I really recommend you try it sometime! I mean, if it weren't for Doug's birthday I could have let myself eat the whole thing. But that's not socially acceptable nor is it healthy! Anyways.
Doug had a fabulous birthday - he got a netbook (teeny tiny laptop) he had been eyeing for a long time. It will be great for him to tote to and from classes at Vandy and is really light and easy to carry.
They called this South Padre Tea- I called it delicious
That weekend we headed to Austin so I could go to my friend Lisa's bachelorette party, and Doug and I squeezed in some hang out time: lunch on the lake and then swimming at the freezing Barton Springs pool in Austin. I seriously love the hippy weird-ness that is Austin and will miss that when we move!
Keep Austin Weird!
