Super Social Food and Makeup League of Austin channeled the bright color of our late-August mood into our lipstick this month.
|It's not complaining. It's a non-verbal expression. Of feelings. That are very negative.|
We ventured east a bit to Mettle because 1) a lot of natural light, obviously, and 2) Fancy Bacon Tater Tots.
|We probably could have just ordered four rounds of these and been as happy as one can be while wearing black lipstick.|
Also other, more entree-ish foods.
And dessert, which was fancy and wonderful but also dark and blurry, much like ourselves. I will note that of all the genuinely weird things we have worn out in public, this one actually seemed to garner the most attention/reaction for some reason. Maybe because we matched? Or because black lipstick seems like a statement more than, say…teal eyebrows or feathery eyelashes, which just seem goofy? I don't know. But boy howdy we endured some looks this month. August is the best.
WE DID HAVE A COLD FRONT THO
It has passed now. Onward, to Pinterest!
Category: "Muffins and Quick Breads." Recipe: Heartland Raspberry Yogurt Muffins.
These were very good and contained enough legitimate breakfast ingredients to seem acceptable first thing in the morning. I wish there wasn't only one left.
|Update: I wish they weren't all gone.|
Category: "Veggie Entrees." Recipe: Lasagna Stuffed Zucchini.
These were good and I even managed to wrangle them into the toaster oven.
|WHO NEEDS MAJOR APPLIANCES NOT ME|
Category: "Meat." Recipe: Dr. Pepper Slow Cooker Roast Beef.
It was nice to have the slow cooker bubbling away on a chilly, overcast day (SEE ABOVE).
Just enjoying the hell out of this home stretch of summer vacation!
