Full Day of Eating

Happy Monday Friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend and I wanted to share with you another full day of eats.

I don’t know what the deal with was this day, but I wasn’t super hungry. Normally I’m ravenous once I wake up and especially after my workout, but my body was not about the food this morning. So I kept it basic and started my morning off with a multi grain waffle with almond butter and some bluebs.

Some friends and I had made plans for lunch at noon! We went to Joey and I felt my appetite kind of crawling up so I was excited πŸ™‚

I ended up going for the rotisserie chicken sandwich. It had rotisserie chicken, cheese, tomato and lettuce. It came with these thin, crispy, perfect fries so I definitely ate some of those.

I ate half of the sandwich and had half the fries and took the rest of the sandwich home to hubby.

Hubby and I ran around after he got home from work and after all the running around I was getting hungry again so we had a pretty early dinner at Tomoya.

To start we got some miso soup. I love miso soup and it totally hit the spot-so warm and soothing!

We also nibbled on edamame while we figured out which rolls we wanted.

We ended up picking 2 rolls: a spicy tuna without rice and a rainbow roll with blue crab. Both were good, but I definitely preferred the spicy tuna!

We had made plans to go see Hotel Transylvania 3 after dinner, but we made in time to find dessert first. We went to Jeni’s. Honestly some of the best ice-cream I have had to date.

We ended up getting a flight of minis so we got to pick 3 flavors. We picked peanut butter with chocolate flakes, gooey butter cake, and brown butter almond brittle. The hubs loved the PBC and gooey butter cake the best. I loved the gooey butter cake and brown butter almond brittle the most.

We watched the movie-super cute by the way and then headed home! That concludes my FDOE which kinda turned into a bit of a full day of living too.

A perfect meal

Well, this would definitely be ONE of my perfect meal ideas amongst many (I can’t pick a favorite of anything), but this one just will not get out of my head so I had to share.

One night for dinner through a series of events we decided on pizza, ice-cream, and brownies for dinner/dessert.

We had some cheese pizza which you know by this point is a favorite of mine πŸ™‚

And we made a boxed brownie which we added chocolate chips to so it would be extra fudgey, chocolatey and rich.

20180619_195649

We decided to make those brownies because we bought this ice-cream.

20180619_195642

Lemme tell ya friends. This combination was incredible. The warm brownie, the incredibly rich and creamy ice-cream-I die!

Major drools over here…

Now that I have shared one of my favorite meals I wanna know what your perfect meal would be. Talk to me in the comments!

Till next time!

The Day Continues (SF Part 2)

If you haven’t read SF Part 1 feel free to click the link and read it now and we will wait while you catch up!

All caught up? Great! While we roamed through Golden Gate Park we made some plans for the evening. We decided to finally leave the park and head to see some other sights.

 

The Sutro Baths were another thing we missed last time so we went to find them and find them we did!

20180517_175646

Don’t let this picture fool you…it may look calm and serene, but it was windy AF. We did walk those ledges and the wind kept trying to blow us off, but the views were worth it!

After the bath ruins we were pretty tuckered out since we had hiked and walked and nearly died at the hand of the winds. We got in the car and headed to see the Golden Gate Bridge!

IMG-20180520-WA0016

I can’t even describe the bridge to you, but it’s a pretty cool experience. It’s touristy, but it’s an experience that I am glad to have had.

20180517_184552

After all the miles we had on our feet we decided to go and grab some dinner. Our friends had recommended this place to us because they wanted us to try Chicago style pizza and Zachary’s is the place to get it in North Cal.

20180517_201346

I couldn’t agree more!

The restaurant itself is really cool with fun art pieces all centered around their pizza and when we got there it was filled with people and the delicious smell only pizza can have!

IMG-20180520-WA0036

We ordered a small mushroom and spinach pizza and I thought we could finish it easily. HAH! I got through barely a slice and maybe a quarter before calling it quits.

20180517_203916

The crust is really crispy, but I guess it needs to be to hold up to all the layers. The sauce was the star here! It was really savory and sweet and flavorful. There was a ton of cheese Β that was super stringy and could build you a bridge from LA to SF if needed. The mushrooms and spinach added a nice textural difference.

20180517_203924

 

When you put that first forkful into your pizza hole you get one hot, delicious bite. That being said I love NY style pizza and even after having this I would choose the NY stuff. I liked this a lot, but it felt more like a pizza lasagna situation than pizza?!

I’m still planning on having Chicago style pizza in Chicago before I make any rash decisions πŸ˜‰

If you know us you know that dessert ensued shortly after! We hit up Fenton’sΒ for some ice-cream. I went for the blueberry cheesecake while the hubs got a chocolate peanut butter something or other. The blueberry cheesecake was a dream! The ice-cream itself was so super duper creamy and the bites of blueberry broke up the creaminess and gave a fresh fruity flavor.

20180517_212049

This was a pretty hefty scoop, but I had already taken some bites.

The evening plans I alluded to earlier were to watch Deadpool 2. We love watching movies and what better time than after a long day of traveling and sight-seeing? We picked a random theater and when we walked into our movie this is what we saw.

20180517_213730

This is seriously one of the prettiest theaters I have ever watched a movie in! I loved all the architectural details and even the curtains were so beautifully beaded. After the movie I can tell you that we went back to the AirBNB and crashed hard!

We were beat!

On Monday I will be back with another SF post so I will see you lovelies then! Have a great weekend!!

Weekend

I LOVE weekends especially when the hubs and I are off together! We always get into some shenanigans and eat some fun things!

Here’s a weekend recap:

We started Saturday with a workout and brunch! Brunch included breakfast burritos (veggie and hot link-hot link was the fave)

IMG-20180207-WA0017

and shared a donut all from Cofax

IMG-20180207-WA0014

We ended up walking around the area for a while and checked out some fun shops and ran into this cool huge tree–this pic isn’t doing justice to how big it really was.

IMG-20180207-WA0011

After all that walking I was craving some ice-cream and this place really hit the spot!

IMG-20180207-WA0009

Since brunch was so late we didn’t have too much of an appetite by the time it was dinner so we had a meal of bread, butter, brie, and olives. I was floored my husband was down to have this as a meal…but I think he enjoyed it πŸ™‚

IMG-20180207-WA0008

We ended up catching a comedy show at the Comedy Store! The hubs is a fan of Chris D’elia and that’s the main reason we picked this specific show.

IMG-20180207-WA0007

We ended up staying up pretty late and so we got kind of a late start Sunday morning. We woke up and went to workout.

Post workout we grabbed McDonald’s. I can’t tell you how long it’s been since we’ve had Mickey D’s, but I will say the fries are still bomb!

IMG-20180207-WA0004

Post Mickey D’s we went for a nice hike. It was such a gorgeous day and we wanted to be as active as possible!

IMG-20180207-WA0003

Look at us looking our best! HA!

IMG-20180207-WA0005

That’s my “I’m on top of the world” pose

The hike was also to prepare us for these donuts from DK Donuts…

IMG-20180207-WA0019

IMG-20180207-WA0020

We picked up some groceries and drove home to chill and relax before the work week! I cannot remember to save my life what we ended up eating that night, but I’m gonna say it was something low-key.

What did you guys do this weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

Midici and Paradise Ice-Cream

I know you guys have heard me rave more than once about how delicious Midici is and that hasn’t changed. We decided to grab dinner there and ended up getting a smoked salmon salad and our usual margarita pizza.

20170909_190613_1505018669412

The smoked salmon salad was amazing! It had avocado, olives, greens, and feta and it honestly could have been a meal in itself.

20170909_195147_1505018668356

The pizza…delicious as always!

20170909_200910_1505018635733

Now on to the part that I am very excited about πŸ˜€ On our way to Midic I spotted this little ice-cream shop. We had a bit of wait at Midici and the whole time I was plotting to go and check out aforementioned ice-cream shop…

Lord Almighty! This place was amazing!! They make their flavors everyday and the store owners are as sweet as the ice-cream they sell. I ended up getting chocolate hazelnut and the hubs got cookies and cream and stracciatella. It was so creamy and the flavor was on point!

20170909_202930_1505018634489

I feel like this is going to become a regular thing now…Midici and Paradise Ice-Cream, but it’s all balanced out by that salad we had so it’s okay πŸ˜‰

Late(r) night eats

Now, I can’t tell you that eating tacos and burgers late night is the best for you, but for us it happens on occasion and I just look at it as part of a balanced lifestyle πŸ˜‰

We had family in town so after the hubs got done with work we met up with them. They had eaten dinner by the time we met up so we figured we would just grab dinner after.

We walked around LACMA and the Grove with them and then we were on the hunt for dinner. By this point we were ready to eat! We settled on Plan Check since we had heard good things, but also because we had heard of their ketchup leather.

We ordered tacos and their Plan Check burger plus some broccolini #getthosegreens

20170915_215618_1505772798502

I think my favorite were the tacos, but honestly everything was super delicious.

20170915_215623_1505772798641

The ketchup leather was sweet and lent an almost bbq type flavor to the burger.

20170915_215613_1505772798294

Post dinner we decided to stop by McConnell’s for ice-cream. We split their double scoop-he got a scoop of double PB chip in a cone and I got the sea salt cookies and cream in a cup. So sweet and creamy!

20170918_161949_1505776830097

It was definitely a top-notch food night for us and we enjoyed every last bite!
