food and drink

today i had a fried avocado taco (okay, TWO fried avocado tacos) from torchy's tacos that were so yummy.

can i just say it again? fried avocado.

it's been 7 hours and i'm still basking in the afterglow.

after eating the tacos i sat in on mexican artisan cheese tasting seminar. imagine how full i was after.

also, gabe bought shiner bock smokehaus beer at whole foods tonight.

shiner smokehaus

we each had a sip and then poured our beer out. oh well.

here's the description from the shiner bock site:
Enjoy Shiner's Smokin' Sommer Bier!
Brewed with pale malt that's been smoked with native mesquite in the backyard of our little brewery in Shiner, Texas (pop. 2,070), this refreshing Helles-style beer has a smoky flavor that goes great with all the flavors of summer.

i personally wouldn't have picked up mesquite flavored beer, but gabe is a sucker for this kind of thing. usually his curiosity is limited to the potato chip and chewing gum arenas but not today. the beer got him.
