What I Ate: Modern 'cue at the Granary and a stop at El Machito

by

Another great week of food has gone by. This time I learned that you can't do three days of Culinaria and follow it with a seven-course dinner at The Granary. I ended the week with a trip to Costco of all places, where I captured a video of their massive selection, followed by a satiating a craving.

After a bout of puking, this Yaya's rice soup was a lifesaver. #whatiate
