green field churrascaria brazilian steakhouse / long beach | los angeles, ca
September 27th, 2011Long Beach, Los Angeles County, Marymary 3 Comments

After we checked in the hotel and got settled in, we took off to have dinner at Green Field Churrascaria, a Brazilian Steakhouse next door to the hotel. If you haven’t been to a Churrascaria, here’s a little explanation of what it is from their website:
The word ” churrascaria” originates from Portuguese, and it literally means “house of barbecue”. The European Brazilian elaborated the idea further around the turn of the century, and it has become synonymous for a place …

roadtrip! hotel current / long beach, ca

Jake and I took a mini-vacation up to Long Beach, CA last week to see one of our favorite comedians, Gabriel Iglesias. We went last year and it was kind of an ordeal; we left after work on a Tuesday, stayed late to meet Gabriel, and ending up getting back home around 2AM in the morning (and having to work the next day). We didn’t want to have to do that again, so we decided to get a hotel room …

arizona cafe / ocean beach – san diego, ca

Stacey has been rallying for me to try more places in Ocean Beach since she hangs out there a lot and knows the good places to go. I’m not adverse to it, per say, except that parking in OB sometimes makes me want to cry and I don’t know where to eat in OB that doesn’t require me standing in an obscenely long line. Thankfully with Stacey as my guide, I got to try out the Arizona Cafe for some …

Tasty Things in Life: Faux Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits
September 21st, 2011etc, Mary, Recipes, tasty things in lifemary 8 Comments

I have proclaimed my love of Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits before. I’ve been meaning to try and recreate these forever, but sometimes I’m just really lazy.
Last weekend I felt it was my mission to make biscuits. And I did. And they were awesome.
I used Bakergirl’s recipe almost to a T. You can see it here.

The dough comes together very quickly. I just used a fork to mash up the butter into the flour and used my hand to bring it …

stacked / mission valley – san diego, ca

I was invited to try out a new restaurant within Fashion Valley called Stacked a few weeks ago and I’m finally getting around to the review! Stacked restaurants are the first ever, fully integrated restaurant experience based on the iPad. Jake’s kids loved this place, simply because of the iPad. The iPad allows you to be in complete control of your meal.
The CEO of the company sat with us and went over exactly how to use the menu, what some …

eating japanese snacks or what i did during the san diego blackout
September 14th, 2011etc, Mary, productsmary 2 Comments

San Diego had a major blackout last week. 12+ hours without electricity made me realize that A) I should probably keep my gas tank half full at all times, B) maybe I should have a real emergency kit in my car after all and C) we sure do have a lot of candles in our house.
I was at work when the power cut out, in the middle of coding a new website. Luckily everything had been saved otherwise I would …

D.Z. Akin’s / College – San Diego, CA
September 12th, 2011College, Mary, San Diego Countymary 2 Comments

Jake rarely ever suggests a “new-to-him” restaurant to try out. He’s very much in the “I want to eat at places I’ve been to before” camp and I’ve often dragged him off to try new places. When he suggested we go to D.Z. Akin’s one evening, I said to him, “Who are you and what have you done with Jake?”
I’ve been here before but he never has and I guess curiosity finally got the better of him. I think I …
