I always like to think of Memorial Day Weekend as the official kick off to summer, even though summer doesn’t technically start until June 20th. Memorial Day last year felt especially summer-like, as I was enjoying margaritas and Mexican food down in Cabo San Lucas. While there was no Cabo this year *tear* there were many good eats, which helped made up for the fact that I wasn’t laying on the beach with a tropical drink in hand.
Homemade Grape Nuts with yogurt (these things are dangerously good).
A nice glass of Pinot Grigio in San Diego with a two of my favorite people.
The Englishman’s giant club sandwich.
Tomato and Mushroom Omelet at Vie de France in South Coast Plaza.
Vegan Pecan Banana Bread which was devoured in approximately 28 hours.
Fresh Squeezed Juice from Whole Foods after a sweaty 6 mile run.
Hamburgers for National Hamburger Day.
Copious amounts of Watermelon.
Black Bean Brownies - recipe coming soon.
And while this isn’t a food picture – one of the bars we visited in San Diego (The Tipsy Crow) had old school Connect Four. How rad is that?
