Actually that's a motto that's good for any city. While I visited Austin for BlogHer Food 16, I did some sightseeing and sampled some of the delicious food that Austin is known for. One of my stops was at Voodoo Doughnuts on Sixth Street. The Austin branch is part of a legendary small chain of handmade doughnut shops that began in Portland, Oregon. I didn't know that I was visiting one of the iconic doughnut shops in America and stopped in because the signage drew me in. I had just had a nice, reasonably healthy lunch, but once I set foot inside I knew I would be trying a doughnut (or two).
The woman who is the model for this painting does not eat a lot of Voodoo Doughnuts.
I'm back in New York and catching up on a million -- that's what it feels like, but probably no more than a dozen -- projects. I've got plans for a general post on BlogHerFood16, my visit to see "the bats under the bridge" and a Halloween giveaway for this week. I hope you'll stop by later this week for all of the fun.
I could be writing about autumn in New York, but the minute we get a day of autumn, summer returns. It was at least 80 today and that's the forecast for the next few days. I put away the last of my summer clothes when I got back from Austin and actually took one dress out today. I'm not longing for snow, but I'd be happy for actual seasonal weather soon.
As always, thanks for visiting and have a terrific Tuesday.
