Yes, we had a blizzard here in Austin. We all managed to survive long enough to clean out the grocery and liquor stores. What was left in the wake of the devastation were several snow people. So what better thing to do than to climb on the bus and go gawk at them. Yay.
We need to have some substance for an appetizer, I’ve cooked up some glazed baby back ribs, bacon-wrapped water chestnuts, assorted crudities, cheeses, and stone-ground pepper crackers. There are two choices for the main course. The first is applewood smoked pork tenderloin and course brown mustard. The second is seared Ahi Tuna with lemon aioli. Both are served with oven-roasted red potatoes, broccoli, and glazed baby carrots. For dessert, we have an old-fashioned bread pudding with brandy sauce and Ice cream. Today’s wines are 2017 Cabernet Franc Fulkerson Winery for the red and 2018 Glenelly Chardonnay Stellenbosch Estate Reserve. Our entertainment is none other than Willie Nelson.
So jump on and let’s go.
Our first snow person is obviously a cowpoke from the wild west. Love the pink hat.
Next is one who obviously has someone making sure they are warm enough. The hat blew off, but the scarf is in place.
Here’s a cute one. Can’t tell if it’s tickled or taking a stand-up nap.
We have been by the flamingo house before. Let’s see. A headless snow person and sleeping flamingos. They may be snow eaters.
Ah, Twin snow folks. How romantic, especially since they have no clothes.
Here’s a snow person and their pet snow person. Wait, is that allowed?
A mail topper minature snow thingy.
Here ‘s one that is working on getting over the night before. Everything about the evening is pretty fuzzy.
Here is the last shot that I left uncropped to give you an idea of perspective. These snowpeople are very demuere.
That is our tour today. Have some more food and drink and listen to Willie. I hope you all have a great week.
