GIVEAWAY! Buy With Me Voucher for the new BLVD Espresso & Dessert Bar

I swear, I think it is just too damn hot to blog. Yes, I know that it doesn't make sense to say it's too hot to sit inside my air-conditioned house and write a blog post, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Since there isn't much to see here at the moment, perhaps you should leave your computer and check out BLVD Espresso & Dessert Bar, a new addition to the 2nd Street District (where Teuscher used to be, may it RIP).

BLVD offers coffee and tea drinks (including local favorites Cuvee Coffee and Zhi tea) pastries from Bakerman's, a selection of chocolate bars and other goodies, and a small assortment of gelatos from TEO to help cool your insides while you're cooling your heels in their lovely climate-controlled environment.

Wonderful strawberry sorbetto!

Deal site BuyWithMe Austin has generously contributed one of their $10 BLVD vouchers to give away to a lucky blog reader!

Good luck, and stay gold, Ponyboy!

Food Photo Friday - Seaweed Salad

If you were to create a Venn diagram of the set of food that is tasty and the set of food that is healthy, the intersection of the two sets would be pitifully small. See for yourself:

Food That Are....jpg

One dish that hangs out in that intersection also happens to be one of my favorite things - seaweed salad. The cool, fresh crunch of the seaweed and the fragrant sesame oil are the perfect antidote to the oppressive heat outside.

According to Livestrong, seaweed salad helps you lose weight by discouraging fat absorption.

Does this mean I can have another spider roll? If so, please pass the seaweed salad.

What are your favorite healthy foods?
