Hey look, it's time for Food Photo Friday and THERE IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING HERE.
Sorry, dear readers; it seems that every year around this time, the heat saps all my creative energy and I'm destined to stare blankly at the empty screen in front of me, willing the letters to pour forth from my fingers. In stark contrast, my love of eating never wanes, so here you have a couple of fresh new photos from a recent visit to Café Blue in the Hill Country Galleria.
This may not be the best photo specimen that ever graced the internet, but the calamari that it depicts was a standout for this calamari-lover. The breading was light, not greasy, and replete with sesame seeds and crushed red pepper flakes, giving each bite a lovely flavor and crunch.

I thought my blue crab cake caesar was slightly less successful, but that's not to say that it was bad. The salad was generously sized and nicely dressed, although I thought that two or three really small crab cakes might be psychologically more pleasing than the singleton I received, perched all lonely-like atop Mount Romaine.

Café Blue has a HUGE space and - sadly - there was nearly nobody in it the day I was out there. I vote we all converge on the place and buy out all their calamari. Who's with me?
