Jimmy and I love the food in Austin too! Jimmy graduated from UT in 1998 and moved back to Dallas but his stomach still belongs to Austin! =) In fact Jimmy waited tables at Serranos his Junior year. Have you been to Matt's El Rancho? If not, go there and get the signature dip called Bob Armstrong. It's terribly bad for you and yet amazing! =)

Let's just say this, Jimmy and I are trying not to be jealous right now that you are there and we are here! =)

Oh and by the way, LOVE LOVE Ezekiel bread. My favorite. I keep several loaves at a time in my freezer. Years ago I used to try and force it on my brother and he HATED the stuff!

Ok enough writing! Enjoy Austin!!!!!
