Farmer's Market, Houston Food Blog and Vegetarian Dining

2 weekss ago Andrew & I went by the Houston Bayou City Farmers Market, unfortunately we came late and had no cash! Check out their website, this market happens every Saturday morning. They had lots of fresh veggies/fruits, eggs, honey, coffee, artisan breads and much, much more! They also had a stall full of yummy prepared Indian foods. Here is another Farmers Market that occurs Tuesday afternoon in the Rice Stadium parking lot and Saturday morning in the Heights. And last but not least is the market that happens in Midtown in Monica Pope's restaurant t'afia's parking lot on Saturday morning.

Whilst on the subject of food I have never introduced you guys to a local Houston food blog - Food in Houston. Although he reviews some restaurants that are wayyyy out of my price range, he does like to explore ethnic dives which tend to be more on the cheap side!

I'm about to go eat at Quan Yin, they specialize in faking meat, here is their motto:

Beyond your imagination.

We provide foods for your healthy life

Tastes like chicken, and chews like beef.


But it's not.

There are no animal products, no eggs and no seafood in our products.

Soy products and wheat gluten are the primary ingredients other than meat

For the people who are vegetarians

And also for those who are not

You'll find out how interesting it is while dining at Quan Yin

Surely, you will enjoy our food with a big surprise.

Visit Quan Yin

And it's delicious!

Girly Night

Off to a cocktails and appetizers event that Irena's sister Ana is hosting.

Irena and I went to Spec's Warehouse in Midtown and picked up some supplies which included: Absolut Vodka, Creme de Cacao and Coconut Liqueur.

I myself am bringing chilled white wine.

Hope there'll be a lot of female empowerment going on. But with all this alcohol involved I'm not too sure...

I always was and will always be a Spice Girl at heart!

Hope the apps are good!

Relationships 101

Because Andrew and I cannot afford couples counseling (not that we need it on a regular basis) but we have found this website incredibly helpful, as have a few of our friends we have passed it on to.

The BBC's Relationships website.

The couples section is pretty neat and has particularly shed some light on productive arguing.
