This last weekend started off with a Friday night football game that went completely according to plan. Our little Play Gourmet donned his apparel and we ushered in our first conference victory of the season to remain undefeated. Even better than the win, was how much the little boy was into the game, paying very …

Hard to believe, but this week, we celebrate our three year anniversary of returning from Singapore and moving to Austin. Mrs. Play Gourmet was 6 months pregnant and we were closing a chapter on what was, at the time, our greatest adventure to date. However, we were only two and a half months away from …

Back after a few weekends of travel, and just in time to show our cousin’s Rob and Mandy around Austin. Rob happens to be a BBQ historian and aficionado. So coming to Austin was part visit, part research. We made it to Snow’s BBQ, which is about an hour from Austin. Snow’s has a reputation …

This past weekend, we made it up to Old Forge, NY. This has been one of our absolute favorite annual retreats for about a decade now. Uncle Mikey hails from not too far away, and introduced us to  this beautiful place, and we have been partnering with his family on Labor Day every since. The …

It was my birthday, and for the first time, our Little Play Gourmet went canoeing, not all by himself of course… He was a natural. We started toward the canoe with two ores and quickly learned that we were going to need three, …

This weekend the Play Gourmets were back on the road, this time heading to Florida for a quick visit with the family. We didn’t come with a plan for what food we might explore, but we did plan to spend lots of time playing. Our little Play Gourmet excels in this category, and in FL …

This weekend we went to a splash pad to combat the heat wave that has come over central Texas. And Declan was running around like a puppy just taken off of his leash, when I shouted from across the play area, “Watch out for the little kids!”  This immediately, alarmed me to the fact that …

One of our hobbies here at the Play Gourmet Center For Making And Eating Things That Taste Good (TM pending) is making and curing meats and salamis. We have been doing it for a little bit now and happily sharing our products. We have shared in the past our love for making sausage, and since …
