August Rush

20 Sep


One upon a time, there was a girl with a blog.  She loved the blog very, very much and looked phorward to working on it each day.  Then her life turned upside down, and she began to neglect the blog.

See, one could blame The Phella, partially, because by getting back together, that put moving into the works.  Moving requires a lot- job searching, house searching, purging, packing, pharewelling… you get the picture.

THEN you actually phind all those things and actually move… and that leads to not having internet.  And that, my phriends, makes blogging rather difficult.

So where does that put us, you ask?  It puts us in Davis (well, San Diego at this exact moment visiting phriends before having to return to a horribly disorganized, half unpacked, very small and oven-less house in Davis) with lots of catching up to do.

Below is August 1 through August 27.  I saved the rest of the month for its own post because of an amazing themed birthday party I went to where the phood most certainly warranted its own post.

And hopefully, by the end of this week, we’ll be back in real time.  And we can explore the culinary options available to an oven-less Davis neophyte such as myself…


Bite the Bullet Blitzkrieg (July 18-29)

5 Sep

Time to bite the bullet and legitimately catch up, phollowers!

Below is a gallery of everything consumed between July 18 and July 29.  Each has a brief descriptor attached to it, but pheel phree to comment if you have any questions.  My apologies to the wonderful phoodie sidekicks who did not get mentioned due to my extreme behindedness.  Let it be known that those I choose to dine with (and those that are kind/crazy enough to choose to dine with me) are phabulous pholks!

More coming right up!

June’s Roaring Twenties (Part Two)

20 Aug

June 25…

Breakfast at Grandma’s Kitchen with the ex-phella AND Alabama and his phamily.

Now that wasn’t awkward in the slightest!

Attempt #2 at eating some hummus (also not successful)…

Cheerios for lunch (wasn’t pheeling so hot, so I backed out on my phun plans with the Sexy Mexican and stayed on the couch).

Cooked up some phingerling potatoes for dinner but only ate two.

Also made buffalo chicken drumsticks (I ate one).

June 26…

Grilled hot dogs, green onions and beer for breakfast/lunch.  Phooey was just a tinge jealous.

A Pharewell Dinner for Alabama with some phriends at Crystal Phish

Tako sunomono


Mussel shooters

Hamachi Kama

Volcano Roll

Sake Bomb (not a good choice after not pheeling so good for a phew days)

Spicy Edamame for a phinal phinal at Hula’s down the street

June 27…

Happy string cheese for breakfast

Pistachio phrozen yogurt with grape nuts for a midday snack

Hard Hat made me a cheese quesadilla when I got back to the office.

The ex-phella and I went to Thai Bistro for dinner and tried a phew things.

I wasn’t a phan of these guys…

Their Larb Kai didn’t hold a candle to Siamese Bay‘s…

Don’t remember what this was specifically, but I sampled it and thought it was the best of what we ordered.

June 28…

“Sausage” for breakfast

Phorgot to take time for lunch so scarfed down a ton of tasty nibbles at book club…

…then dashed over to London Bridge in time for trivia.  I had a half a grilled cheese waiting for me, but it had gotten cold and tasted horrible, so I only had two bites.

June 29…

I tried some of Sparky’s gluten-phree pasta.  It made me reconfirm my love of gluten.

I made a green chile stew for lunch, using ingredients I’d brought back from my trip to Santa Phe.

I had a work event at Chateau Julien at night, and they put out a super tasty spread of cheese, crackers, phruit and nuts.

I then headed over to Pops’ house and had dinner with him.

And June 30… to phinish off the month (only a month and a half late!)

Bacon to start the day!

Chile Rellenos from a place down the street I’d never tried.  Not very good and my stomach issues from the weekend before came back, so let it be said that this didn’t “stick with me” for long.

Phooey, Work BFF and I met The Phoositter for drinks and dinner at Cypress Inn.  I don’t remember what this was called but it tasted like a cream soda… with booze in it.  Hello!

I can NEVER resist wasabi peas…

The Phoositter and I shared a tasty burger, while Phooey phlirted his night away with his very phavorite ladies.

And June is phinally phinished… phew!
