What I Ate: August 12, 2009 (Gumbo's)

Dinner: I was invited to a food blogger event at Gumbo's restaurant (710 Colorado St # 100, Austin, TX‎ - (512) 480-8053‎). The food was pretty good today with the Redfish Francine my favorite. I'll have to go back and give them another try in the future. (We had eaten here last April and had mixed feelings. Tina's fish was poorly prepared and she had to order a replacement dish. I didn't feel like the gumbos they served tasted like what I was expecting - an authentic New Orleans style gumbo. Tonight's food was much better prepared, so I think it'll be worth trying again.)

South Louisiana Bread Pudding served with whiskey sauce & vanilla ice cream (which I forgot to photograph)

Lunch: I stuffed some manicotti with a mixture of ricotta, garlic, basil, and parmigiano reggiano. I then baked it in a milk, parmesan, mozzarella cheese, and arugula sauce.

It's too bad the dish didn't photograph well.
