Lastnight my in-laws came in town for dinner. We hadn’t seen them in a while even though they only live 45 minutes away, so we all decided to get together and head out to The Oasis. Its claim to fame is the Sunset Capital of Texas and I can see why. Its a HUGE (seats over 5,000 people) restaurant overlooking Lake Travis and was the perfect spot to watch lastnight’s sunset. We got there at the perfect time, only waited about 30 minutes, and were seated on the deck around 8 just in time to take advantage of the orange glow over the water.
The food is not great but its decent enough and the real draw is obviously the atmosphere or ambinance as my father in law kept saying. He knows how to say it, but is always looking for a laugh 🙂
This morning after seeing the hubby off to work 😦 and getting in a good hour run and some coffee 🙂 I headed to the Farmer’s Market. My fruit and veggie bowl was looking a little sad.
This is normal for the end of the week pre-grocery trip. I’m headed to the grocery store this afternoon, but wanted to go local for all the fruits and veggies they could provide before turning to the chain store. Until our garden starts providing, the farmers in the area are the next best thing. Farmers Market success! I grabbed lots of goodies.
Broccoli, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet onions, peaches, and some sort of squash made the cut along with cinnamon-flavored agave nectar made here in Austin. I also got a few treats for the week.
There was a woman there with gluten-free goodies and the key was a tray of pieces to taste. She sucked me in with those little morsels and I ended up with the biggest biscotti I’ve ever seen (which I cut in half when I got home for double the pleasure) and two little anise shortbread cookies. It was a great run-through and I will definitely be headed back next Saturday. There were some tiny carrots that somehow didn’t make it in my bag and they are already on the list for next weekend.
Time for yoga and then an afternoon of errands. Have a great weekend!
