So...this blogger's been on a bit of a hiatus lately. My mother-in-law was in town last weekend from Guatemala so we were super busy showing her around the San Diego area. Unfortunately, I had to work a lot while she was here - I'm working part time at a coffee shop right now and my schedule changes every week. Also unfortunately, many of my shifts occurred during dinnertime so I haven't cooked much in the past week. On the flipside, it gave Hubby and her plenty of quality mother-son time and I know they enjoyed that :)
Here are some of the things I remembered to capture with my camera lately.
Hubby and I visited Stone Brewing Company in Escondido for a tour and free tasting. They are known for their Arrogant Bastard Ale.
Awesome new breakfast: 1/4 cup raw oats with skim milk, ground flaxseed and a package of Nature's Valley peanut butter granola bars crushed on top. Why did I not think of this sooner?
Have you tried Pretzel M&Ms? What do you think? I really liked the combination of sweet + salty + chocolate (of course!). Love the soft peppermint puffs too (the hard mints that melt in your mouth - yum!).
This was a pretty tasty lunch the other day: raw bell pepper strips with hummus, and a bagel thin with leftover pesto, tomato, and ham. More yum!
Hubs, MIL and I visited the beautiful historic Mission San Diego de Alcala...
...and took in the breathtaking views from Self-Realization Fellowship in Encinitas.
We had a lot of fun and I wish MIL's visit had been longer :) Stay tuned for yummy veggie pizza, pumpkin-cranberry-walnut bread, butternut squash soup, a fall twist on Rice Krispies treats, and more!
I am looking for a fun recipe using pomegranate juice - any suggestions?
