wienerschnitzel hot dogs

Ah, Wienerschnitzel. I hadn’t been here in years and two things converged to bring me here last weekend: 1) I got some gift cards from a PR person and 2) They were having a 61 cents anniversary special. Let’s do this.

The familiar steeple A frame is still present in all of the Wienerschnitzel’s in San Diego. I totally associate this look with hot dogs.

The menu. They don’t just have hot dogs anymore! There’s also a variety of chili burgers and …

Two weekend ago when I wasn’t feeling very well, Jake and S were over and I decided that the only thing I really wanted to do that weekend was take a trip up to Vista to try out Pepper Tree Frosty and Danny’s Donuts. I read about Danny’s Donuts and Pepper Tree Corner on Pink Candles of Ridgemont High. CC wrote about their awesome blueberry donuts (post forthcoming) and I also wanted to try the food over at Pepper Tree …

Bruxie recently opened in the College Area, offering up sandwiches that use waffles instead of bread. WHAT.

I had seen/heard of Bruxie before from other bloggers talking about the OC location and I briefly considering going to OC to try it… but yeah, that didn’t happen. Bruxie was originally supposed to open up at the Headquarters in Downtown but something happened and they pulled out… and are now open and running in the College Area. In fact, they are right next …

After my grandfather’s funeral and a large buffet dinner with the family, my mom and I left with my aunts (my mom’s sisters) to head to Southhampton, MA (which is on the western side of MA) while my dad stayed with his family for another night. The next day my cousins took me out for a little afternoon joyride and took me to see cows (!!) and get ice cream. YES.

rita’s italian ice & iwok chinese restaurant / bonita – san diego, ca

Last month Jake and I had A and S for the afternoon and we took them to see the new Transformers movie. In case you’re wondering, no, you really don’t need to go see the new Transformers movie. If you really feel you must watch it (and haven’t already) … seriously, wait for it to come out on DVD so you don’t feel too ripped off. We go to the Regal Rancho Del Rey theater in Chula Vista where movie …

My plan was to make my Root Beer Float cookies for the Fourth of July this year. Imagine my surprise when I couldn’t find the root beer extract I was so sure was in the cabinets. It wasn’t in the drawers or in my special set of drawers for all of my baking stuff… maybe I used all of it and just don’t remember? Maybe it’s hiding out somewhere behind a big bottle going, “I’m right heeerrrreeeeee!” Oh well. I …

key lime desserts hunting in key west, fl
May 26th, 2014 Florida, Mary, Road Trips Mary Desjean 12 Comments

Jake and I had a goal to try a bunch of different Key Lime desserts while we were in Florida (and Key West). We didn’t quite get to try as many as we wanted to but we still got a variety. Desserts are listed in the order that we ate them.

1) Yoder’s Key Lime Pie
Yoder’s Amish Village / Sarasota, FL / $4.50
I already talked about this over here on this post. Fluffy, light, creamy, almost like “Key Lime lite” but …

fluffy duffy’s snow cream / college – san diego, ca

Last week after Jake’s first softball game of the new season (they had a two week break and won 20-9 for their first game, woohoo!), we headed over to Milo’s Pizza for a couple of slices of our favorite pizza (ricotta/mushroom is my favorite topping now). Lo and behold next to Milo’s was this place:

Fluffy Duffy’s Snow Cream! What! It had been maybe a little over a month since we had last been to Milo’s and the place next door …
