wienerschnitzel [part deux]

Hello, Wienerschnitzel. We meet again. I hope your presentation is a little bit better than last time. Don’t disappoint me, now.

Jake and I were here to try the new chili cheese dogs thanks to some PR coupons I received. Jake is the instigator here since he said we should try Wienerschnitzel again. I didn’t really want to. 

It was blazing hot on the day we went and I was so close to getting Freezee. 

We went to the location on El Cajon Blvd. right …

Imagine it: Sunday afternoon. Downtown. Bright, sunny, few clouds here and there. Hot. Humid. Nice day to sit outside on the patio at a new-to-you restaurant. You’ve got your dog, your boys, and an afternoon of food ahead of you! Just ignore those deep dark clouds that keep rolling in for a moment. It won’t rain, right? 
Yeah, we’ll get to that.
Last weekend I was invited to try out Double Standard Kitchenetta – a relative new joint down in Gaslamp. Previously this spot was …

funky fries and burgers

On Saturday, Jake and I went out for a bite to eat at a brand-spankin’ new spot in El Cajon called Funky Fries and Burgers. We managed to get their BEFORE the torrential rain started (though we got stuck in it later after we went to Parkway Plaza). I found it over on Yelp. There was a video on Yelp showing a basket of fries with two eggs on top and gravy being poured over the top. I showed the video …

[revisit] brunch at kitchen 4140

Kitchen 4140 is in a pretty little slightly hidden spot on Morena Blvd., just down the street from the Costco and the Harley Davidson dealership. I’ve been here a couple of times already and documented Kitchen 4140 at least once before (I’ve been back for that insanely good chocolate bacon brownie dessert… drooooool). When I got invited to come in and try brunch I did a little happy dance since I hadn’t been in awhile and it was the perfect excuse …

Before I forget and get TOO lazy, let me wrap up my desert trip from May! (PS – Can you believe it’s JULY now?!)

On the last day of our trip (which was on Memorial Day itself), we headed up to Pioneertown which is not too far away from Yucca Valley. There’s a road that leads up to Pioneertown. The town is located just up over the hills in the distance of Yucca Valley. It takes about 10 minutes to drive …

bbq’s, oak by absolut, and summer dinners on the grill
June 29th, 2015 etc, Mary, products, Recipes mary 6 Comments

IT IS SUMMER! Just in case you had no idea. Tourists visiting San Diego the last few days might have been thinking, “What in the world? Why is it cloudy?” but us year-rounders know all about the “June Gloom”. I’m just not used to this weird new addition of “June Humidity”. It feels like nature is confused and thinks we’re on the East Coast or something.
But I digress… it is summer! And that means it’s time to cook everything OUTSIDE just …

summer tasting menu at vessel restaurant

Earlier this month I was invited to another media event for the Vessel Restaurant over at the Kona Kai resort hotel in Shelter Island. Jake finally got to be my date this time around! Vessel Restaurant was featuring dishes from their new summer menu and each course was paired with a local craft beer.

Hence everyone had tons of beers surrounding their place setting at the table.

I don’t usually drink this much and honestly I’m not a huge beer fan (sad, …
