So the day started off pretty well. A nice hike in the pouring rain…yes, it was pouring. Quite delightful if I do say so! But by 10:30-ish it was back to beautiful ole sunny, blue skied San Diego!
Came home to make a delicious breakfast of poached eggs from Omlett on homemade coconut bread with spinach, tomatoes and swiss cheese. It was delicious!!
All was good until we decided it was time to do something…well that something was to “seek” a wonderful donut. Found some pretty good ones at VG Donuts in Cardiff.
We got maple for the hubby, maple (and a glazed twist) for SweetPea, chocolate for the other SweetPea and buttermilk for me. And because you can’t buy an odd number of donuts, we had to even it out with a 6th one. Yes, another chocolate.. But look, we didn’t eat the whole thing!
Ok, riddle me this?! What is the correct way to spell donut/doughnut?!
And since we were in the area, we had to stop by Beaming…one of our favorite SuperFood places! Got an acai bowl…I know! Not the best thing to wash down a donut, but it was full of healthy fruit AND we split it. So that makes it ok, right?!
Where is your favorite donut spot?
Today was full of chocolate! Lots of chocolate! And a little fruit…
Coconut flour brownies to start. Thanks www.ambitiouskitchen.com for the recipe for the brownies!
With a little sea salt to top off that flavor.
A few blueberries and mint to brighten up the picture…and flavor!
But this really was the star of the day!
Awesome job SweetPea!
Really didn’t need a thing. Was delicious, creamy, rich and decadent all on it’s own!
But why not guild the lily?! And top with some whipped cream!
And a sprig of mint…
Or fruit?! Cherries, Strawberries and Blueberries with a sprig of mint!
Guess we loved it :0)
Hmmmm? What shall we make tomorrow? Any suggestions?
A beautiful start to a wonderful holiday weekend and tradition!
What is a vacation without cocktails and pu-pu’s?!
Matinis, bark thins and pistachios…to start!!!
A happy and safe 4th of July to everyone! Especially our service men and women who fight everyday for our freedom!!
More to come!
So beautiful, tasty and healthy! FavorSeeking at it’s finest!
Thanks @aglimpsephotography for the beautiful photo! And www.hailmerry.com for a delicious treat!!
Ok, so we are needing a treat and of course one should turn to fruits and veggies…
But…a girl needs her healthy fat for glowing skin, right?! And I’ll take any miracle I can get!
Look at that texture! There was a fight over this baby! The crust was decadent and the filling so rich and creamy! I think weare in trouble!
One piece left and it did not last but a few seconds!!
And all gone!!! So sad.
Back to FlavorSeeking for the other flavors. Tried chocolate and chocolate almond butter. We can’t wait to try the lemon, lime and coconut. Oh and did I mention? They have macaroons too. YUMMY!!!!
Please try them and let us know what you think!!!
That time again! Need more chicken feed. So off to our favorite little hidden treasure in San Diego. City Farms Nursery!!! www.cityfarmersnursery.com
This place never gets old!!! So much beauty and peace in the middle of the city!
Strawberries and looks like a version of Morning Glories…
Pears and pomegranates…
Look at all those eggs!
Roses, nasturtiums and morning glories…
And butterflies! This plant really works!
And our new friend Roxy.
Until we need more chicken feed! Or who knows, we may find a reason to come back before then!
Oh count the ways!!
Chicken Marsala with portobellos last Tuesday!
Stuffed portobellos this Tuesday…
Gone are the Taco Tuesdays…
We have moved on to Portobello Tuesdays!!!
Portobello stuffed with Garlic shrimp and spinach! With a side of fresh berries.
Lets see how many Tuesdays we can pull this off…
I am thinking polenta next week and maybe pizza the week after. Then we can move on to some sort of portobello dessert???
A lazy Saturday afternoon. Needed a break from studying, but didn’t want to drive to the beach. So thought we would do a little Flavorseeking and try something new and a little closer to home!
So many choices!
And we always have one in the crowd that is a little different. Instead of a sandwich…a cup of ice cream and a side of cookies.
The de-constructed version…
And as you can tell, we didn’t much care for it…
