Baking Party

Katrina and Gary came over last Thursday night and we baked!

I bought two of these little cupcake cups from TJ Maxx for $2.99.

So cute especially since FTK’s theme this year is “CAPTURE THAT DREAM” and there are stars involved, it was very fitting.

Pad Thai [stir-fried rice noodles, eggs and bean sprouts in special sauce topped with peanuts, bean sprouts and cilantro] | $8.75

Depending on if you want tofu, chicken, beef, shrimp, the prices vary.

I got the chicken for $8.75. It has been voted “best” pad-thai in San Antonio. In my opinion though it’s very delicious, I don’t find it the best if compared to a Thai place in Houston.

But a few days later a Groupon showed up for Thai Topaz. $8 for $16 worth of food.

I so totally bought it!

Then Tammy came down so we used it and I got tofu instead of chicken and loved it. I guess it was an off day for me the first time.

Overall, great place. The lady there is nice. If you’re not in a rush, this is a great place for Thai food.

You can also call in and order and then go and pick it up. Winking smile

Trudy’s and Amy’s

During Halloween weekend, we had some adventures.

Me, Jenny, Tammy, Brian, Richard, Susan, Peter, Michelle, Wilson P., Long, and Steven all went to:

Trudy’s
409 West 30th Street
Austin, TX
(512) 477-2935

We had to split up with seating so I sat with Peter, Susan, and Michelle.

It comes with free chips and two different salsa dips. We had already eaten halfway until I realized I had to take a picture. Whoops!

Us four ate at least four times this if not more. It was that good!

Beef Fajita Ala Mexicana [tender beef fajita meat marinated in a soy-ginger spice blend and sautéed with onions, cilantro, jalapenos, tomatoes and lime juice. Garnished with a small salad and sliced avocado. Served with Spanish rice, borracho beans and a choice of tortillas] | $12.50

I got a choice of corn tortillas. Omgosh … I about died. The meat was so juicy and succulent. I was very full. I wasn’t even halfway full. (Maybe it was the chips?) But I made sure to finish ALL the meat. Because it would be a waste if I didn’t.

After we ate, Wilson P., Michelle, Steven, and I were heading back to the apartment and stopped by

Irish Crème with a waffle cone and sprinkles | ~$5

I’ve never had ice cream with alcohol before so it was a good experience. I couldn’t taste the alcohol but Wilson P. and Michelle thinks it’s filled with it. Hmm …

This was what sparked my ice cream with sprinkles addiction with the last post I made. It was that good. Sadly Amy’s is the best ice cream place I’ve ever been.
