stuffed! food truck

Every day I check out the San Diego Food Trucks website and Twitter to see what food trucks might be near my office that day and recently Stuffed! was making a nearby curbside stop. Not all of the trucks come out this way to Sorrento Valley (the quieter side of Sorrento Valley – I don’t like going to the Qualcomm side, too busy!) so I felt it was my humble blogger duty to go and check them out.

The menu at the Stuffed! food …

happy national doughnut (donut) day!
June 5th, 2015etc, Marymary 4 Comments

I’m assaulting Twitter and Instagram with my favorite donut photos today. Because it’s National Donut Day! And because I can. Also:  I didn’t feel like doing a “real” post today. Sorry. Follow me and check out my luscious donut photos today on either Instagram or Twitter!
Here are a few photos for you guys, though:

These are Koeksusters! They are cold, glazed donuts from a South African restaurant off Miramar Rd called Cape Town (and also Deli SA in Kearny Mesa). They’re different …

a-chau vietnamese sandwiches

Taking a break from all of those desert posts to tell you about some FOOD I actually ate recently. Vietnamese food to be exact! Most of the time I only seem to eat Vietnamese food around Mira Mesa but I was down in Jake’s ‘hood and needed a bite to eat. Jake was doing the Little League thing and I was on my own to grab something before his game started. I decided to go and check out A-Chau which …

world famous crochet museum and the art queen in joshua tree, ca

One of the quirky places we visited in Joshua Tree was a place called the Art Queen. It was a bit of an artist’s playground, converted from an old motel out in the desert. Shari Elf is the woman behind Art Queen who makes art from recycled thrift store or flea market finds. What really drew me to the place was the promise of a tiny little museum housed in an old Foto-mat drive through.

This is the sign you see …

the jelly donut & sky village swap meet / yucca valley, ca

The really nice part about our trip was how leisurely it felt. We had no plans, really. There were a few things I wanted to see but mostly we just played it by ear. After spending a cozy night in the little house, I got up before the boys, had some coffee, and then made breakfast.

We had leftover flap steak, eggs with ricotta + other cheeses with fresh basil, Parmesan polenta, and sourdough toast.

I made extra polenta so we could have …

getaway to the desert: our stay in morongo valley

We headed out to the desert on Saturday around mid-morning. There was no way I wanted to leave on a Friday before a long weekend – can you imagine the hellish traffic that would have been waiting for us?! We planned a trip out this way for a little quiet time and Jake wanted to show me around Yucca Valley. He lived there for a little while back in the 90’s and wanted to see how much had changed since …
