FOODIE PARADISE...

Goodness, what a delicious place is San Diego, California!  Just got back from accompanying the Hubs on a business trip...and here's some of the places we dined.  Some were recommendations from TripAdvisor and some were from friends. Totally feeling the need to go and work out now!!!

 First stop:  Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill - made famous by Guy on DDD for their fish tacos. Oops, missed the tacos... 
 Extraordinary Desserts was so good I went twice since it was only 5 blocks from our hotel.

 Is that not scrumptious?
 We shopped the Farmer's Market right by our hotel on Saturday and made some delicious purchases for our picnic lunch.

 We got a mixture of berries and yes, those are white raspberries!
Red walnuts
 One of our picnics!

Queenstown Public House (New Zealand style food) turned out to be a favorite!  I loved the decor too but didn't want to be that weird touristy person taking a ton of pictures...

 The Hubs tried the Wild Boar burger there and said it was surprisingly mild.  I had some lamb that was really good too.  


Yes, I ate this HUGE donut from Donut Bar.

One of the best things about this trip is I got to reconnect with a friend I had not seen in 30 years, thanks to Facebook!  She recommended Slater's 50/50.

 We went and tried it out - The 50/50 burger has 50% beef, 50% bacon in the patty!  I couldn't eat the whole thing...it kinda tasted like summer sausage.

 We were blessed (?) to be staying in Little Italy, surrounded by good food.
We ate at one of the nicest Italian restaurants the last night, Buon Appetito.  I had a delicious risotto dish on a Parmesan nest.  I'd like to try to make a Parmesan nest now!

So are you feeling FULL?  Whew...

I have done my own foodie tour of the outskirts of OKC while working this week....Bob's Burgers in Kingfisher, delicious! 3 Gringos Food Truck in Watonga, might be the best puffy taco I've ever had....and I stopped and got chicken from Eischen's on the way back to my parents house tonight....I recommend all of those places! Glad you had a good trip!

So neat!! I've never been to California, so it makes me want to go. The foods looked and sounded yummy, except I just can't do lamb. If I didn't eat it as a kid, I'm not very adventurous on meats! Ha ha!!
