BurgerSense

Ok..
so..
remember when
I talked about that blog
about tacos
called TacoSense?

Go check it out!
I will wait...


Well...
apparently, there is more
to this 6th sense
than just
tacos!!!

How about
a

The opening of infamous
made it's 
debut
today here 
in Texas 

i.e.
launching BurgerSense's
first posting

I can't wait to get in on
the burger tasting band wagon

What's next with these senses???

Do I see a
PizzaSense in our future?

Just saying...

Marfa- El Cosmico


I find out
about the most
random things from them

Yesterday, I read about El Cosmico
in Marfa , Texas

I have never been to Marfa
but for some reason, it's a place I've wanted to visit
Now, I have a reason!

Here's the event I want to check out -
a cooking class with Chef Lou Lambert:

SEPTEMBER 16-18: Big City Camp Cooking


Traditional chuck wagon ingredients will be prepared using "big city" culinary techniques -- all over a live outdoor camp fire. Sample Menu: Barbacoa Raviolis, Gulf Seafood Pasole Verde, Bock Braised Dutch Oven Wagyu Short Ribs, Gingered Pear Fried Pies with Honey Buttermilk Ice Cream.

You can stay in a remodeled trailer, a yurt, or a teepee.   I can't decide between the yurt or the teepee.   (You can even pitch your own tent, but that's too rustic for me)

I have been fascinated
with chuckwagon cooking
since I attended a bbq
in Graham, Texas last year

It inspired me
to acquire
that I coveted last year

Reata Southwest Cookbook by Mike Micallef
&
Texas Cowboy Kitchen by Grady Spears with June Naylor




Let me just add
that this fascination
is all very bizarre,
because I'm definitely not
an outdoorsy camper girl!

I hope we get to see her again soon
