searching for my red ; and a great date
It has been a while since red has drifted back into my focus....It is however my lifelong favorite. I remember when I was in maybe 7th grade my dad asking me why I had so much red in my paintings"are you angry? "he asked. I totally did not get this (I have never thought of myself as angry),I don't remember how I responded . ...anyway a red for fall
Dada and I spent date night at this wonderful new to me Colombian restaurant; Casa Colombia.(love the red in their sign)
It was super fantastico, great food very nice atmosphere all for a reasonable price. Dada discovered it while we were in Bama.
He says it was opened by the chef who first opened Dona Emilia's . Which was a very tasty eastside treat that we used to go to when I was an eastsider back in the day. I have not been to the downtown location but from the looks of their website, Casa Columbia is more like the eastside Dona Emilia's that I remember.
Low key and laid back with fantastic food at reasonable price. I had perfectly pan cooked tilapia with avocado sliced on top and a spicy mayo on the side . Fried yucca, sweet plantains(YUMYUM), and beans came with it.
We also had this awesome appetizer of fried plantains stuffed with cheese. I totally forgot the food pix, sorry.
On this date-nite I sported another 5 minute angry chicken skirt I made. I used this beautiful vintage silk fabric that my sweet brother e -law gave me( thanks c). You can kinda see it here; think 1987 librarian..very sexy
I really love this pattern ...not these photos though .YOU MUST MAKE THIS SKIRT! IT IS FOOL PROOF!
The hem looks kinda janky in this photo ( I was having silk /serger issues), but I still loved it! Especially with my sexy datenite only shoes!( thanks nanny) I must take a real photo of these shoes they are really cute (not comfortable).
We had a fun Sunday! We rode out to the Buda Natural Science Museum
After burger inspired us with his elephant impersonation
