Just had one of the best meals of my life at Fonda San Miguel in Austin.
For starters we had fried calamari, cooked to perfection, crisp outside, tender inside, not chewy at all. Also a smoked salmon tostada with cream cheese.
I had a chili relleno, stuffed with pork, almonds, raisins and I know not what else, topped with a walnut cream sauce, and garnished with pomegranate seeds.
For dessert Dom and I split an almond flan. We also raised a glass of very nice port (I took the tiniest of sips) to Professor Tolkien’s 116th birthday.
Thanks so much to my dad for babysitting, my mom for treating us, and my brother and sister for providing most pleasant company. (And to Isabella for sleeping soundly while we were gone.)
