140.8…Pacific Coast Grill

Wow. I have been eating a ton lately! Just the way I like it. :)

Tuesday night I made a pizza to use up the rest of the sauce I bought last time I made pizza. I used the same Pillsbury dough as I did last time but I pre-cooked it longer this time so it would be crunchier.

It got a bit burnt on the edges but I kinda liked it that way. 

Yesterday’s breakfast was Trader Joe’s Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt with Cascadian Farms granola, strawberries and raspberries.

I took the kids to school and came home to get ready for my friend Nora’s birthday lunch at Pacific Coast Grill.

PCG is a relatively new restaurant and is located right on the water on Coast Highway 101. The views and decor are incredible! I felt like I was on vacation somewhere relaxing.

Fabulous! The flavors were amazing together. I wanted another one!

The table shared some chips and guacamole:

Happy Birthday Nora!!!

After lunch I met my husband for a meeting and then we came home.

It was date night so off to my favorite restaurant, Firenze Trattoria, we went.

More vino. :)

We split our standard Chopped Caesar salad.

After we ordered it, we remembered how fabulous their bruschetta was last time….we have to remember to order it next time!

I already knew what I wanted for dinner before we arrived: Pollo Piccata.

September 2012 035

I ate every bite. Big surprise, right? After dinner, I was stuffed. That was a ton of food for one day!

This morning’s breakfast was a toasted English muffin with peanut butter and a side of strawberries.

I took the kids to school, went to a meeting and then hit the road for Los Angeles to visit my dad where I am now!

Lunch was El Pollo Loco. Yes!

September 2012 037

Chicken, tortillas, roasted corn and cole slaw. Basically a container of happiness.

I plan to hang out with parents today and head back to San Diego tomorrow. I think I could just about make that drive with my eyes closed by now. :)

If you could eat anything you wanted right now, what would it be?


  1. I've been wanting to try PCG. Now I can't wait!

  2. I could eat pizza every single day and never get sick of it - I don't mind the crispy burnt edges! :D
