Oh man….did I ever eat well this past weekend! It all started Friday night as we hit the road for Orange County for the weekend. We stopped at our club for dinner. My husband and I shared a Caesar salad….
…..and a pizza with garlic, onions and green peppers:
We arrived at the Pelican Hill hotel, checked in and went to bed.
We ordered room service Saturday morning. I had scrambled eggs, potatoes and bacon. Not too shabby.
Alicia and her family were also there for the weekend. Alicia and I met up after breakfast to go shopping at South Coast Plaza. We stopped for lunch at Quattro Cafe. I ordered the Caprese Panini. It rocked.
After shopping we came home to change for dinner at Javier’s. It was beyond packed in there. After a bit of a wait we were finally able to snag a table.
We shared their Shrimp Ceviche Tostadas.
These things are incredible. For my entree I ordered the Lobster Enchiladas.
I ate 98% of that huge plate, after I drowned it in hot sauce, of course!
Sunday morning was room service again. This time I opted for a healthier option: yogurt, granola and berries.
Alicia and I did a bit more shopping at Fashion Island while the husbands and kiddos went to the pool. We stopped for lunch at R+D Kitchen. I ordered a tuna sandwich.
Strange that it came with 3 halves right??
We came back to the hotel and got packed up. My sister in law and her kids met us for dinner at Ruby’s. I wasn’t super hungry since we ate a late lunch so I ordered clam chowder and a side salad.
After the drive back to San Diego, it was bed time! Great weekend!!!
This morning it was back to real life. Even thought today is President’s Day, the kids still have school.
Breakfast was an English muffin with peanut butter and strawberries.
I dropped the kids off at school and then spent the rest of the day at school (with volunteers) assembling 550 food baskets for a school event. At some point I stopped for lunch and grabbed a salad in the school cafeteria.
We finished assembling all the baskets with a little time to spare before I have to pick up the kids so I’m at Starbucks rewarding myself with a much deserved latte.
Up next: pick up kids and make dinner. Tonight is Bachelor at Lisa’s!
What was the best thing you ate all weekend?
