Moving to a new place is exhilarating for many reasons.
You leave everything familiar behind.
And, you start over.
You explore new things.
Like new food, for example.
Austin is multi-cultural and has many cuisinies.
I am vegetarian.
So, you would think my options are limited.
Far from it.
I have had so much fun exploring Texas Cuisine, Mexican Cuisine, Tex-Mex Cuisine and more.
I tried some tacos at Torchy’s. YUM!
Daddy never ceases to amaze me with his creativity.
Check out this fruit and veggie platter that he put together today.
Kumar made some awesome pasta salad for dinner today evening.
First, he boiled some twisted elbow pasta. He added lots of veggies from Costco Sweet Kale/Chou Frise Doux packet. Then, he added dates, apples, avocado, cucumber. Finally, he poured in some Thousand Island Dressing.
Super yummy pasta salad!
Do you remember the days when peas used to be peeled from the pea-pod rather than stored in a plastic bag in a freezer?

Cold, wet, windy, rainy day.
Pepper Curry (Milagu Kuzhambu) + Pumpkin Dish (Poosanikai Kootu).
I am finally beginning to understand and appreciate how logical Indian food is. Pepper has many medicinal benefits. Milagu Kuzhambu is a staple in South India during winters because it helps prevent and cure the common cold. The dhal in Kottu has high protein. Protein in-take helps burn energy slowly during the cold winter days.
