attack on titan birthday cake
January 26th, 2015cake decorating, Marymary 4 Comments

Jake’s daughter recently had a birthday and it was up to me to create another birthday cake (she’s now 15, WHAT THE HECK). This time she asked for Attack on Titan birthday cake (flavor: lemon). She loves Attack on Titan and when we went to walk around at Comic Con last year she dressed up as one of the characters and also did the same thing again for Halloween. She’s really into this show. Me? I hardly know anything about it, but …

portland, oregon – day three recap

Welcome to Portland again, dear friends, as we explore and recap the third day of our trip. It’s a bit of doozy with the photos!
1) Stepping Stone Cafe

I will admit that the Stepping Stone Cafe did not initially make my itinerary. Jake and I watched an old episode of Man v. Food before our trip and Jake really wanted to go here. So I fit it in. Aren’t I a nice girlfriend? (Just nod and say yes.)

This is part of …

deli sushi and desserts / miramar

I’m always poking around on Yelp at lunchtime to see if anything new has popped up in my office’s area. And there was something new! A sushi place pretty close by. My cohorts and I went to check it out. It’s called Deli Sushi and Desserts.

I didn’t take a photo of the outside but it’s totally in a warehouse area with a little banner declaring it’s presence. “I’m here! I’m here!” it tries to shout, but your mind is like, …

wing crawl / san diego wing week

San Diego Wing Week is here!

It’s a week long event that offers special deals on wings – mostly $5 baskets of wings. There are also $10 deals, usually wings and beer, available at all participating locations. Tomorrow (the 20th) is the last day for San Diego Wing Week so I felt it was my duty to post about this today instead of another Portland post (but that’ll be later this week).
This time around my crawl cohorts included: Jake, Laura, Lynn …

restaurant week preview at monello in little italy

I was invited to check out a preview of San Diego Restaurant Week this year and my choice of restaurant was Monello in Little Italy. Jake and I first visited Monello back in December 2013 and I remember loving their homemade pasta so I was looking forward to a revisit.
We were warmly greeted by the manager of Monello, Paul, who was delightful and really engaging. I saw him constantly interacting with all of the guests dining in the restaurant that …

ariana produce and cuisine / mira mesa
January 15th, 2015Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

Last month CC and TC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High came up to my ‘hood to have lunch with me! I picked a tiny little spot that I had seen a few times but never dined at. I forgot to take an outside photo but this lunch spot is actually inside of a Middle Eastern market called Ariana Produce and Cuisine. The market is in a strip mall on Camino Ruiz. A 7-11 is nearby as well as Rita’s Italian Ice, …

lumberyard tavern / encinitas
January 14th, 2015Encinitas, Mary, San Diego Countymary 4 Comments

Last month I was invited to check out Lumberyard Tavern up in Encinitas. I brought Stacey along with me to check it out. Whenever a place has a long whiskey menu, I figure Stacey is the one to bring along.

[kentucky koolaid and an old fashioned / $8]
I hardly drink these days but Stacey insisted I at least try something. Fine, okay. I ordered a totally girly fruity sounding drink called Kentucky Koolaid with bulleit rye, muddled (smoooooooooshed) blueberries, agave soda …

portland, oregon – day two recap

This is a hefty post. Just warning you in advance.
On our second day in Portland, we headed out to the Alberta Arts district for breakfast.
Pine State Biscuits

Specifically at Pine State Biscuits. I seriously only meant to order a few things but everything sounded SO GOOD…

I might have over ordered a little bit. Oops.

[biscuits and gravy / $5]
No one cried over my choices or massive amount of food. I’m sure the boys would have been happy to have ONLY eaten here …
