Walton's Fancy and Staple

I have a friend named Anne. I think she is walking poetry. She told me of a trip that she had to Sandra Bullock's second Austin eatery and I had to try it out. To put it mildly, I fell into food love. 

I went through the line and the first thing that caught my eye was this little bee cake. It had to be mine. Look at it's little fondant body and almond wings. So cute. We ate it.
 This was my foodie cohort (and dear friend), Emily. We shared all of our delicious fare and raved to one another. She got the fruit tart for desert. I was in too much of a food coma to get a picture by the time it arrived. It was delicious.
 Yummy coffee to cut the sweetness of the meal.
 Spicy Bird. My. My. My. If you like spicy, grab this bird. I thought it was amazing.
 I had never tasted the decadent goodness that is the Monte Cristo. This cake like bread holds between it the most amazing turkey, ham, and swiss you can imagine. It is dipped, deep fried, and sprinkled with powdered sugar. If you get right down to it, this is a gooey French toast sandwich and it is divine.
 Here was my other date, Maesyn.
 There is a small parking lot on the left if you are coming down sixth. It is just past Nueces. I give you this info because I missed it.
Here were some random shoes hanging from a power line downtown as I was driving home. 
Keep Austin Weird.

These are my boots I wore to Walton's. My husband ordered them for me for Valentine's. I think they are two totally different colors, but I am going to keep them. I grew up on a ranch, have lived in Texas all my life, have serious southern drawl, but I have never owned boots that were not stilettos. Look at me. Off on a new adventure . . . in boots.
