genghis grill / mira mesa
September 15th, 2014Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego Countymary 5 Comments

Genghis Grill opened in Mira Mesa earlier this year. I went awhile ago with my co-workers but I wasn’t super impressed with my initial visit. Recently Laura came over so we could continue watching Downton Abbey (we’re still behind!) and grab some dinner. I suggested Genghis Grill again just to see if they had changed or there were any improvements from my last visit. Let’s see how it went!

We went for dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was fairly …

mini breakfast pizzas on pretzel rolls
September 12th, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 4 Comments

Happy Friday aka Happy Pre-Weekend! I feel like I’ve been waiting all week for this day to come around. Let’s reminisce about some food I made last weekend. Specifically breakfast food. Pizza breakfast food. Mini pizza breakfast food. On pretzel rolls. Yesssss.
Originally I was going to do these on English muffins but Jake and I had bought 4 soft pretzel sticks at Trader Joe’s and they were begging to be used. I had to indulge them.

I really like the mini …

beijing wok and grill / fountain valley, ca

Jake suggested after we got the donuts that we could just call it a day and go home and NOT get Chinese food. I gave him the most withering look I could muster. As if! OF COURSE we need to try another Chinese place. Pfffft. It’s all in the name of research for you, my friends.
My choice for this trip was a place called Beijing Wok and Grill which was a pretty quick drive from the Donuttery. Beijing Wok and …

civil war days + the donuttery / huntington beach, ca

This was our third year attending the Civil War Reenactment in Huntington Beach. It’s held every year over Labor Day weekend and is sponsored by the City of Huntington Beach. It’s one of the free reenactments you can attend. You can learn so much about our country’s history by watching the battle and talking with many of the living historians attending the event. Here’s my recap of this year’s reenactment (plus, donuts at the end).

I have never really thought about …

ham n scram / westminster, ca

Over Labor Day weekend this year, Jake, T, and I made our way back up to Orange County to check out the Civil War Reenactment once again. But first… we had to stop for breakfast. Breakfast is very important after a long drive and a little Yelp research led me to a little place in Westminster called Ham n Scram.

It’s not a big spot. There’s about four tables inside and the place was full that morning. We were worried we’d …

I had a bunch of things that didn’t quite constitute a full post, so I’m going to stick them all together and call it “food finds”. Why not!

[housemade gyro with potato salad from wich addiction]
Here’s a terrible photo of something SUPER delicious from Wich Addiction. A couple of weeks ago the special of the week was a housemade gyro with their own tzatziki sauce on a scallion flatbread. I almost ate my screen looking at this beautiful sandwich again. The …

dirty birds / pacific beach

I’m forever on a quest to find awesome chicken wings. I’ve read before that Dirty Birds has topped a few lists. Jinxi did a post about Dirty Birds recently that got me thinkin’ it was about time I check it out. Jake plays softball down in Pacific Beach on Sundays and my friend Laura joined us for some post-softball grub. 

In case you didn’t know, this is definitely a sports bar. Just a few things give it away… 

TVs line the whole …
