In the midst of the sitting around, I was able to visit two Austin "real food" restaurants, Hudson's on the Bend (where I had rattlesnake cakes - not gluten-free but very tasty, and Hudson's has several gluten-free options) and Foreign and Domestic (steak and pigs brains. I have to say the brains at Animal were better, but the steak at F&D was fabulous, the yogurt with dill sauce sublime, and the atmosphere quintessential Austin). I'm told the Noble Pig is also excellent (though it is a sandwich restaurant).

At this point I have numerous articles and a large stack of books waiting to be read. I'm hoping that without my class, my schedule will be a bit more forgiving. You never know what will turn up, however, and the backlog of emails and to-dos--formidable!
