Earlier this month, Austin hosted the Lonestar Roundup, a huge car show. Hot-rod and custom car owners from all over the country come to show off their rides. Saturday evening, there was a cruise on South Congress. We took the kids down there to check out these unique cars.
I liked this pale pink one. Too girly?
This guy incorporated Lone Star beer cans into his car's engine. He said he drank so much of it while working on the car, he felt like he had to pay tribute. Ha!
The kids did not know what to make of this crazy school bus that had flames coming out of it.
The cruise went on late into the evening, but we had to return home with our two little car lovers and get them into their pj's.
The next day we tried the lunch buffet at Taj Palace. It was good, although I think the quality of the food is better at their Tuesday night vegetarian buffet. The spinach pakoras were hard, like they'd been left in the deep fryer for too long. But the chickpea kofta balls and the sag paneer were delicious as always.
They always have tasty desserts to sample. The kids like the creamy pudding made with vermicelli noodles. I like the halwa -- it tastes just like carrot cake.
