The lobster nachos were outstanding but the sliders are my personal favorite. I really enjoyed the sashimi too!

This may surprise you but my breakfast this morning was different.

I made a breakfast burrito with a scrambled egg, onions and cheddar cheese. Just felt like something different finally. :) No guarantee it’s permanent. 

We are having a fabulous lazy day at home today. I love it. 

Lunch was a turkey sandwich, veggies and ranch.
