142.8…Barbeque Bonanza

Since yesterday’s post was all about my Eggland’s Best Brunch, let’s rewind and check out my other eats!
Wednesday night we met some friends for dinner at Phil’s BBQ in San Marcos.

Phil’s BBQ is a barbeque institution in San Diego. I have had it twice before at catered events but I’ve never been to the restaurant. I was more than excited! I enjoyed a glass of wine and an amazingly mind blowing meal.

I ordered the half rack of ribs, Cole slaw and macaroni salad. We all split onions rings. Everything was so freaking delicious. I love me some good barbeque ribs and these rocked! The onion rings were fried perfection!

As if that meal wasn’t decadent enough, we went back to our friends’ house (the husband was celebrating a birthday) and had some chocolaty chocolate cake.

It was rich. It was decadent. Now you know why my weight was up so much yesterday. Hehehehe.
Yesterday morning’s breakfast was light and simple. I knew I would be eating a ton of rich foods at my brunch, so I didn’t want to over do it.

Fiber One Honey Squares with almond milk and a cup of coffee.
Dinner last night after the brunch was simple. I defrosted some stuffed shells with turkey meatballs and made a big salad.

After the brunch, I had a ton of egg whites left over from my failed hollandaise sauce, so I made an egg white omelet this morning with jalapenos, red onions and cheddar cheese. I had some berries on the side.

My husband took the kids to school and I went to Cardio Muscle class. I came home and packed us all up for Los Angeles! We are going to my niece’s birthday party on Sunday and thought we’d all spend the weekend there.

We picked up the kids and ate some snacks/lunch in the car.

Turkey sandwich and Jalapeno Popchips. Once we got to Los Angeles, we stopped at Pina’s Mexican Restaurant. They had THE BEST chips I’ve ever had.

I guess this was lunch number two? I ate a bunch of chips and guacamole so I wasn’t super hungry but managed to eat a delicious fish taco.

I love Mexican food. You know what else I love? Sipping champagne on our hotel balcony over looking the water. :)

  1. Hi Melissa! I'm checking out your blog for the first time and I have to say, sipping champagne with that view looks amazing! And your BBQ meal - pretty much my ideal "last meal." :)
