This was a few weekends ago, but it was during the one cool, autumnally-appropriate temperature weekend Austin has seen so far this season. As the last several weekends and the next few weekends show summertime-level temperatures, I’m reminiscing about the one October weekend when an outdoor fire was appropriate, and I stood next to the grill as much to keep warm as to get the first piece of chicken tikka masala. Enjoy.
