tasty things in life: chicken noodle soup from souplantation
November 16th, 2011Mary, tasty things in lifemary 0 Comments

Besides the muffins from Souplantation,  I think the chicken noodle soup is also one of my favorite things there.

To be specific though, the noodles in the soup are my favorite thing. I hardly eat the chicken. And sometimes I drink the broth, but mostly I get a bowl of this stuff simply to eat those chewy, delicious noodles. I love the texture of them!
Oh man, I think I might have to go to Souplantation for lunch today.

chicken pie diner / poway – san diego, ca

One rainy evening I was on my own for dinner.
Since it was just me, I didn’t feel like dirtying up a whole kitchen just to feed myself. All I wanted to do was sit inside in pajama’s and read all night. But I still needed to eat, so I trekked out to an old haunt for some fresh and tasty comfort food. Comfort food seems to taste better on rainy days, don’t you think?
I headed out to the Chicken Pie …

tasty things in life: bruschetta

After Sam’s show last month, I got home and found myself craving a little something-something for my tummy. I wasn’t full-blown hungry but I also wanted something with a little more “oomph” than just a bowl of pretzels. I stood in the kitchen for a second before realizing that I had all of the ingredients to make something simple and delicious. I could make bruschetta!

I toasted up some sourdough bread while I chopped up my ingreidents: fresh hothouse tomato, red …

Hong Kong BBQ & Dim Sum is a restaurant located inside the Vinh-Hung Supermarket in Mira Mesa. They have Chinese lunch specials and other dishes as well as a special Dim Sum menu available to order off as well.

November 4th, 2011etc, Marymary 8 Comments

I was invited to come to a live taping of Sam the Cooking Guy’s show, the Sam Livecast, to check it out and hang out on set (aka Sam’s House) and see what it was all about.
I got to admit, I was apprehensive about accepting. Me and cameras, we don’t get along so well. I’m not interested in being in front of them and I refuse to watch myself on camera. But, after thinking about it and getting reassurance from …

IHOP – free birthday food / mira mesa – san diego, ca

IHOP is new on my list this year – I don’t remember ever going here for free birthday eats but I have a feeling it’s not “new”. Here’s the coupon:

The birthday coupon is good for a Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘n Fruity – OR – a menu item of equal or lesser value. Good for 2 weeks, received 1 week before my birthday.
Since I wasn’t in the mood for pancakes for lunch, I opted for the latter. The retail price of …
