Book Signing At CrossFit Austin

I’m super excited to let y’all know… I’m doing a book signing at CrossFit Austin on Saturday. My favorite CrossFit box is kicking off their annual Circle of Awesomeness Challenge on Saturday morning with benchmark workouts for the participants. Ouchie!

After their travails, I’ll do a short reading from Well Fed, and will be selling copies at $5 off the cover price. I’ll also be wielding my Sharpie, just in case you want me to sign your copy.

What: Well Fed cookbook signing
Saturday, January 28
Time: 12:00 noon
Location: CrossFit Austin, 8708 South Congress, Suite A180 (map)

Come on out and play with us! You are totally safe from working out, but it’s a great opportunity to take a look around CrossFit Austin’s awesome new expanded space. Plus, you’ve read about Tristy and Walker and Wes in my blog; now’s your chance to meet the coaches I think are the finest in Austin… and, ya know… hang out with me a little!

    Awesome! If I had a private jet, and I weren’t afraid to fly in it, I would be there! You are quite the celebrity…you need to come to the Seattle area :o)

    HUGE congrats on the success of Well Fed Mel!! If Oprah would lend me her private jet, then I’d SO be at the signing (I’ve always wanted to visit Austin)!

    My copy of Well Fed is quickly being worn in. Just made a batch of Ras al Hanout and it’s legit! Sauteed some grass-fed ground beef with it, then plopped the yumminess on top of a bed of raw kale with a huge dollop of parsnip hummus. Dee-Lish!And ps, if you’ve never made parsnip hummus, I highly recommend doing so. It’s life changing, and I suspect that a foodie such as yourself would get a real kick out of it.

    Thanks again for your continued inspiration Mel!
