thanksgiving recipe suggestions
November 24th, 2014 etc, Mary mary 0 Comments

It’s almost Thanksgiving again! I feel like I haven’t even adjusted to the time change yet and already the holidays are creeping up on me. I’m going to blink three times and it’ll be Christmas. Time, you are going by way too fast.
I’ve started really getting into Pinterest lately and created a Thanksgiving board with tons of ideas for Thanksgiving recipes including side dishes and desserts (plus some crafts). Here are a few of my favorites from the bunch, plus …

mj’s yogurt time and deli revisit
November 17th, 2014 Chula Vista, Mary, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

Short post today since I feel I am not “fully recovered” from Vegas yet. Or rather, I have so many ideas running through my head from the conference that I couldn’t focus enough to do a longer post. Hah!
Recently I met up with CC from Pink Candles at Ridgemont High. She had some birthday goodies for me and more importantly, travel information about my next fun trip to Portland! It’ll be our first visit to Portland and I’m starting to gather …

[recipe] pumpkin chocolate chip pecan bread
November 12th, 2014 Mary, Recipes mary 2 Comments

Back in the day when Mira Mesa still had a Ralph’s instead of the mega H-Mart, I would pop into Ralph’s in the fall to pick up some of the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They were like one of the bakery items that I always loved to get at Ralph’s and I never really tried to make it on my own. Since Ralph’s is no one near me now and I don’t think it’s worth it enough to drive to …

rita’s italian ice – mira mesa

Rita’s Italian Ice is slowly infiltrating all of San Diego by popping up new locations all over the place! The Rita’s in Mira Mesa opened about two weeks ago and I decided to stop by for a little quickie visit last week.

This location is in the inner part of Mira Mesa off of Camino Ruiz, near Capricorn Way. There’s a new(ish) California Donuts shop nearby, a Filipino restaurant, Little Caesar’s, Azteca Mexican (a market) and Ariana Produce (another market). Ariana …

cucina basilico

This past weekend I had wanted to go check out Chicken Charlie’s new restaurant, but a quick overview of some recent reviews made me think twice about it and I decided that we would wait until they worked out some of their kinks. Instead I turned to browsing through my Entertainment Book to see if there were any decent coupons to use and that’s how I found Cucina Basilico.

Coupon love. <3
I did a little bit of research and found the reviews …

catalina island birthday promo
October 31st, 2014 Catalina, Los Angeles County, Mary mary 8 Comments

My big birthday freebie this year was going to Catalina Island! Catalina Express offers a free round trip ticket on your actual birthday (value: $74). That’s the big catch – that you must leave on your birthday. Since my birthday fell on a Saturday this year, it was the perfect day to finally be able to visit Catalina.

They give you a birthday ribbon to wear. The birthday ribbon entitles you to various freebies and everyone wishes you a happy birthday …

birthday dinner at d bar
October 29th, 2014 Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego County mary 10 Comments

This is not the freebie birthday post. Those will start tomorrow! This is the “it’s my birthday and I just want to go out to eat” post at one of my favorite restaurants, D Bar in Hillcrest. I actually prefer the lunch menu to the dinner menu, but as long as you load me up with some macaroni and cheese then no one will get hurt. 
I had a few friends join me for dinner! Let’s see some of the tasty …
