CBD Provisions

I was informed that Pimento Cheese is a Texas tradition. As a life-long Texan, this was news to me. A friend of mine wanted to meet for lunch at CBD Provisions, because she loves their food. I was thrilled to be close enough to snatch some coffee from Weekend. #Sold I reserved a table for 12pm, via OpenTable and met a few friends there for lunch. Overall, I’m not as big a fan of CBD…

Winery Adventures

Last week, I met my sorority sisters for lunch at Landon Winery, in Greenville, TX. This particular location is in the heart of Downtown Greenville, and is nothing short of idyllic. This quaint little pop-stand caught me by surprise. I hoped for their wine selection to be phenomenal, but my palate only fell for the Rose. I brought two bottles home for myself, to sip while frantically finishing my ConLaw readings….

Mesero – Dallas

The Beau and I brunched at Mesero on Sunday. We took the pups, which was a riot – because getting to the patio (with a blocked entrance…fire hazards be damned) was challenging. Our original plan was to eat at a pet-friendly restaurant (which is a short list in Dallas proper). Now, I’d eaten at Mesero before and was not super thrilled to go back. However, we were now trapped by cars…

Splurging Is Good for the Soul

The beau’s brother introduced me to SOYLENT 2.0. We ordered 12 bottles of Nectar flavor. It tastes like fruity pebbles milk, or a melted strawberry milk shake. I didn’t think it was all bad, but it certainly is a different taste. The aftertaste is great, which is nice – because meal replacement shakes (in my experience) aren’t always so kind to my tastebuds. Skeptical though I was, I gave this nutrient-rich,…

Meal Prep for the Busy Law Student

Usually, I meal prep on Sunday. However, I was quite disenchanted with the mere thought of cooking then, and the kitchen passion didn’t quite hit me Tuesday, or today either, hence – I continued to procrastinate. [law school daze, right] Put if off until tomorrow…I was happy with this decision. Until I opened the fridge in the morning to pack my lunch and realized – I didn’t have lunch! Well, damn. Joke’s…

Law Student Reviews: Hello Fresh

Balancing a schedule is beyond hectic in law school. I imagine it’s similar to actually practicing law. There are deadlines, meetings, prep sessions, after-hours events – the list continues… What I find particularly challenging is working out and eating well between reading and briefing cases. Since I’ve been sorely lacking in the “workout plan” department, I felt I should pick up the slack on the healthy eating. Because, I can…

FUEGO – The Yummy Kind!

Fuego! Tortilla Grill IH 35 North, San Marcos, TX 78666 (512) 754-8226 {The Best “Pit-Stop” I’ve experienced heading south!} Let’s start with the appetizers, shall we? I’m always terrified of trying guac and queso at restaurants. It’s one of those combos that are either incredibly awful, or amazingly scrumptious. Thankfully, FUEGO provides the latter – yummy, chunky guacamole with piping hot tortilla chips. They’re not too salty, and just the perfect amount of…

There’s this specialty restaurant on SMU Blvd, this teensy place where Mel’s been dying to get her snack on.

There was no…
