triple lobsters at fishtales in hatfield, ma
July 29th, 2014 Mary, Massachusetts, Road Trips Mary Desjean 11 Comments

I only have a couple of Massachusetts posts left! This is one of them. For our last proper dinner in Massachusetts, on Father’s Day, my Uncle Bob wanted to take us to this place for triple lobsters. Triple lobsters for $19.99. YES. You read that correctly. Look, I have proof!

See, I wouldn’t lie to you.

Also we were in Hatfield! No, it’s no reference to the famous Hatfields and McCoy’s though honestly I thought there might be some connection until I …

rubio’s california bowl / utc

While I’ve lived in San Diego for more than a decade, I had my first fish taco when a Rubio’s opened up in the mid-90’s in my hometown of Rancho Cucamonga. Yes, that city actually exists and, no, it’s not like that movie Next Friday with Ice Cube. Well, most of it at least, but that’s a story for another time.

wings and fish / encanto
July 23rd, 2014 Cheap Eats, Encanto, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 7 Comments

Last Friday Jake and I were running some errands in the evening when I started thinking about dinner. And yet again, I was having a craving for chicken wings. We hadn’t found our “go to” spot yet and I was scoping out Yelp for ideas on places we hadn’t tried yet. We had T with us so we couldn’t do a bar (like Duck Dive) and somehow I stumbled on this place in Encanto (my old hood) called Wings and …

ss lobster ltd / fitchburg, ma
July 9th, 2014 Mary, Massachusetts, Road Trips Mary Desjean 26 Comments

One place that I love, love, love in Fitchburg, MA is this seafood place called SS Lobster Ltd. My grandparents would take me here when I visited from Boston. Memere (my grandmother) would always get the fried scallops while I usually wanted the fried clams. This place has good memories for me and my Mom wanted us to go here for dinner on a first night in Massachusetts. Like my Dad and I were going to say no to this …

southernmost beach cafe / key west, fl
May 19th, 2014 Florida, Mary, Road Trips Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Ahh, we’re finally getting the to the Key West posts! It was a long eight hour drive down to Key West from Tampa. Sarasota was about an hour away so after blunch we still had about seven hours ahead of us. Hoo boy. I didn’t do any of the driving, I just sat in the back seat and chilled out reading my books.
 
We drove through lots of swampland, which you pretty much can’t see. There’s a lot of green, then …

revisit to bud’s louisiana cafe / kearny mesa – san diego, ca
May 16th, 2014 Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 6 Comments

Taking a little break from the travel posts to write about a place Jake and I went to last week here in San Diego. I haven’t written about Bud’s Louisiana Cafe since 2009, when they were still located in Tierrasanta! I’ve been back a few times since that post but am finally doing a revisit post. Woo!
I had a strong hankering last week for some catfish… specifically some FRIED catfish. Maybe it was that week spent in the South that …

supernatural sandwiches / miramar – san diego, ca
April 11th, 2014 Mary, Miramar, San Diego County Mary Desjean 12 Comments

A few months ago, my co-worker cohorts and I tried to come to this plaza off Miramar Rd. for lunch to visit a place called Dave’s Cafe. But it had been closed down and a new spot was revamping it for an eventual move into the spot. Fast forward a few month’s and the place has finally opened and we went last week to check it out. The place? Supernatural Sandwiches.

I think they’re still working on their signage since the …

[recipe] shrimp and asparagus with cheesy grits
March 19th, 2014 Mary, Recipes Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Last night was the first night I had a real meal for dinner since last Thursday. After a few nights of eating bread, or saltines and plain rice, I was actually hungry for a real meal and set about gathering the ingredients to make one. Shrimp was on my mind for some reason and I headed over to H Mart and found asparagus on sale for $.99 cents a lb (wooo), shrimp on sale and grits just seemed to pop …
