Today included a late brunch in Solana Beach and a rushed burrito in the San Diego airport as I wrapped up my phun-filled weekend in San Diego and enjoyed a delayed trip back to reality.
For brunch at Claire’s on Cedros, I ordered the Caprese Frittata (by recommendation of the waitress) and the Sonoma sandwich (by recommendation of my stomach). The frittata was originally covered by a massive arugula salad, which I promptly removed. A few bites of the egg/tomato portion was enough- nothing spectacular.
The sandwich, however, was much more impressive. Goat cheese, fuji apples, cranberry relish, onion marmalade and lettuce on whole wheat raisin walnut bread. I shared it with a phriend, and we both enjoyed it. I passed on the sweet potato fries that came with it, but the others at the table who sampled them had good reports.
I did indulge in a bite of Claire’s renowned multigrain “clairecakes”. The mix is available for purchase, and if they taste as good when you make them at home, that could be a very wise purchase…
After rushing to get to the airport on time (only to find that my flight was delayed), I did my best with the phood options available and settled on a Baja Fresh Grilled Veggie Burrito. While not really phoodfoto worthy, it was tasty and filling, and a half of it induced an overly full feeling I’m still battling.
One result of the weekend is the new blog format, as well as the impending addition of a “Phood with Phriends” page. Please let me know if you’d like to be pheatured!
