espresso pizza / fitchburg, ma
September 14th, 2015Mary, Massachusetts, Travelmary 2 Comments

I am back from the East Coast! Boy, it’s great to be home and to NOT have to break out the GPS to get anywhere. I’m going to kick off the week with a Massachusetts post from the very first place we visited after landing in Boston – a pizza joint in my dad’s hometown of Fitchburg, MA. Don’t worry, there will also be San Diego posts this week as well!
After a snafu at the car rental place in Boston …

cheap hot dog dates at costco

Costco. The land of the cheap date.
Assuming your date likes hot dogs. Or pizza. And likes sitting near parking lots.
Actually, these days there are more options than just the normal $1.50 hot dog + drink special. You can step your game up a notch by splurging on a little bit more!

Partial menu.

Pizza. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve eaten Costco pizza at parties.

Maybe your date is hankering for a little cinnamon action. Hook them up with this oversized twisty …

It is Labor Day, my friends. I’m currently reaching out to you from the past since I’m totally on the East Coast right now! The magic of scheduled posts is truly fascinating, isn’t it?
In my absence, I leave you with a photo of Maya who hasn’t a labored a day in her little doggie life.

What a princess.
Happy Labor Day!

mama kat’s

One lovely and crazy hot Saturday morning, Jake, T and I were up in North County. We don’t really spend a whole heck of a lot of time in the northern parts of San Diego, but here we were. It was still breakfast hours though the time was creeping up and over noon and I figured it was high time to try out this spot called Mama Kat’s.

Mama Kat’s is over in a little strip mall not too far from …

manna bbq

I had a hankering for some Korean BBQ recently and decided it was finally time to go and check out Manna BBQ in Mira Mesa. Manna BBQ took over the old Pizza Hut restaurant in Mira Mesa, across the street from the Target. Pizza Hut moved into a smaller location in the adjacent lot so you don’t have to mourn their loss (heh heh).

We went to Manna BBQ on a Saturday evening and only had to wait a few minutes …

bushfire kitchen / carlsbad, ca

Up in Carlsbad, there’s a cool new restaurant called Bushfire Kitchen that’s serving up cafeteria-ish style food. It’s a similar concept to Tender Greens or new the Lemonade that’s opened up recently in San Diego (post forthcoming) – except you order your food and they deliver it to your table. Recently I was invited to come in and check out Bushfire Kitchen for myself.

Bushfire Kitchen is in the southern part of Carlsbad, around La Costa. It’s inside a shopping plaza, …

making chocolates at the gourmet chocolate class
August 28th, 2015etc, Marymary 6 Comments

A few weeks ago on an extremely warm Saturday, I was invited to try out a class with the GETCreative program at the Art Institute of California-San Diego in Mission Valley. I had the pleasure of taking a gourmet chocolate class and brought Stacey along with me as my guest. She might have grumbled a little about the 9AM start time but being rewarded with chocolates at the end seemed to subdue her a bit. Let’s check out the chocolate …
