Pollen is the New Black, Tennis, NomCity and Greasy Tex-Mex

Hola amigos! This weekend was a bit of a whirlwind and I found myself drowning in work on Monday, so you know how that goes. I feel yesterday I was prancing around in my new Christmas PJ's and now it's darn near Easter. 

With spring, comes pollen. You Houstonians know the drill. BUT this spring takes the cake, my allergies have been out of control. My car is permanently yellow/green instead of jet black, and I can't seem to make it stop! Now, even though my eyes have been a little itchy and my throat has been a little scratchy, my penchant for the outdoors will not be broken. 

Saturday we headed out for a nice morning round of tennis (we watched, they played) at the Men's Clay Court Championship. I love watching tennis, and these guys are real pros.

After that, we ambled around town, hit up a crawfish boil and decided on a last minute group dinner at Provisions. As in The Pass & Provisions, as in, utter delight. We had all indulged in a few cocktails prior, so as we settled into our patio table, our appetites took over and we ordered half the menu. Pizzas, mussels, cheese, meats, hamachi, shisito peppers, rabbit ravioli, bucatini, sazeracs, sexy Italian reds and a plethora of desserts. You jealous? Anywho, I love this place, GO get the rabbit ravioli. It made my heart sing.

You thought my culinary adventures were over? Wrong. Sunday evening I went to a greasy little Mexican place in my Mama's neighborhood with her best friend (who happens to be my second Mama and my best friend's Mama) and our "adopted uncle" who has known us since we were 5. The weather was grey, damp and cold, so I opted for a frozen marg, taco al carbon, half a gallon of queso and a cheese enchilada. Zero calories (because it was Sunday and rainy, duh!)

So there you have it. I was so full from my weekend culinary gallivanting that I couldn't post on Monday. Stay tuned this week for some delightful spring recipes, concert happenings, Easter delights and playlist magic. I hope you had some delightful weekend meals as well (tell me about them in the comments!) and as always,
