     I'm sporting my festive fall flannel in celebration of the beautiful new weather here.  The outdoors has gotten a lot more pleasant (bike weather!), and I'm crossing my fingers that it will stay that way.  I kept myself pretty busy this weekend working on a home reno project, attending a packed Washed Out show, and partaking in one of the best party ideas ever- one dedicated to the mighty Frito Pie. Here is a glimpse of what this type of party may consist of...

...chips in all shapes and sizes (it's not just for fritos anymore), toppings galore (hello okra and sauerkraut frito pie!)

...and the finished product!

     To some, it may look utterly disgusting, but down south, we treat this as a delicacy consisting of a typical mix of fritos, chili, sour cream, and cheese.  Of course, there are plenty of other variations as shown above if you want to get wild. The party I attended even served up different types of chili such as regular, lamb, and vegan.  

     I will be hitting the race tracks this upcoming weekend in Austin for F1.  Bryan has been looking forward to this all year, and I'm excited to finally get to see a professional race.  Even if you're not into racing, I suggest adding the movie, Rush, to your playlist.  There's action, drama, and Chris Hemsworth all wrapped into 123 minutes.
