145.8...Epic Adventures in Cabo

All I can say is Wow. I had the most incredible time in Cabo San Lucas this past weekend. The weather was perfect, the company was a blast and the food rocked. I really meant to blog while I was there but I was having too much fun honestly. It was my husband’s company’s annual trip to Cabo and it never disappoints. 

Tuesday night before we left I made pasta for dinner. I was trying to get packed and there wasn’t a ton of options in the house, so it seemed like the obvious and easy choice.

Wednesday morning we were up bright and early to get ready and get out the door. Breakfast was my usual favorite.

We arrived at the airport and waited for the rest of the group. Everyone arrived and we had some drinks and food before boarding the plane. I split a breakfast burrito with my friend Melanie.

We landed and jumped into the cab and headed towards our house in Pedregal.

When we arrived, we were greeted with delicious snacks.

We put our bathing suits on and enjoyed what was left of the beautiful day by the pool.

Dinner Wednesday night was at the house. We had chicken and shrimp fajitas with all the fixings.

I was in love with their beans. Amazing.

The rest of the evening was spent playing ping pong and hanging by the fire pit by the pool.

Breakfasts were actually my favorite meals at the house. Thursday’s breakfast was chilaquiles, eggs, bacon and potatoes. 

IMG 7474

So damn good.

Then we had the rough job of laying by the beautiful pool all day.

Lunch was fish tacos and barbecued ribs.

IMG 7486

My favorite beans appeared at almost every meal.

Dessert was supposed to be creme brûlée.

It was a bit more like flan, so I did not partake. In case you forgot, I cannot stand flan.

Dinner Thursday night was especially awesome. We made the hour drive to Flora Farms Restaurant. It’s too bad it was dark when we arrived because the property was gorgeous. The pictures at night were not doing it justice. Flora Farms is a ten acre organic farm in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains in Cabo. Getting there is an adventure all by itself. 

It also just so happened to be Steve’s birthday!

Our meal started out with a complimentary pea and goat cheese soup.

IMG 7494

It definitely had that fresh from the garden taste!

Our table split a couple of pizzas. Margarita Pizza:

Tomato & Bacon Pizza (my favorite one):

IMG 7496

My husband and I split the Burrata:

IMG 7497

It was delicious!

Melanie and I split the Pork Chops because they only had the large size left. 

IMG 7498

They weren’t kidding when they said large. Fabulous pork chops though! I think almost everyone at the table got to try it!

IMG 7492

After dinner we drove back into town and went to Mandala Nightclub for some dancing!

Breakfast Friday was an veggie omelet complete with my favorite beans.

IMG 7506

We spent the morning and early afternoon by the pool.

IMG 7690

Lunch was chicken and steak tacos.

IMG 7518

And some fabulous fish and shrimp ceviche!

After lunch, we headed to the marina for our late afternoon yachting adventure aboard the Contessa.

The day was so perfect….we saw a few whales along the way too!

Dinner was at one of my favorite restaurants in Cabo, Edith’s. The meal always starts with their complementary tostada: 

IMG 7584

The table also shared a myriad of delicious appetizers:

IMG 7585

You have to order the Caesar salad when you are at Edith’s. It is prepared table side and it is fabulous.

IMG 7586

After all that, I wasn’t super hungry so I opted for the lobster bisque. 

IMG 7587

Yes, there is lobster bisque hidden in the bread bowl. It was really good!

After dinner, it was back to Mandala Nightclub for more dancing. We stayed out way later that I’m normally used to but every minute of it was a blast!

Breakfast on Saturday was huevos rancheros. 

IMG 7588

It’s exactly what the doctor ordered when you’ve been out super late the night before. ;)

Saturday was a lazy day by the pool. At lunch we had sangria. Such a beautiful presentation! 

IMG 7598

Our meal started with a salad with honey mustard dressing. It was too sweet for me but everyone else inhaled it.

IMG 7599

We enjoyed some carne asada, rice, beans and mashed potatoes. The carne asada was unreal. 

IMG 7601

Saturday night was our final dinner of the trip. It started off with a creamed corn soup that was so amazing.

IMG 7602

The main event was “surf and turf”: filet wrapped with bacon, shrimp, veggies and the cutest presentation of a baked potato I’ve ever seen:

IMG 7603

The potato was in foil shaped like a swan! 

Dessert was mini chocolate cakes with ice cream:

IMG 7604

After dinner we went out for a bit. We started at The Nowhere Bar.

IMG 7607

IMG 7613

Followed by Cabo Wabo.

IMG 7618

After that, we went to El Squid Roe (a favorite stomping ground of mine during college spring break) for a bit before heading home.

Our last meal at the house was Sunday’s breakfast. Chilaquiles, eggs and my beans: 

IMG 7610

We packed up and sadly headed to the airport. We had our standard fare at the airport for lunch: Carls Jr.

IMG 7614

Famous Star and onion rings. :)

Since cooking wasn’t going to happen last night, we went to Firenze for dinner. My husband and I split the Chopped Caesar salad. 

IMG 7698

I wasn’t that hungry so I ordered the Shrimp Bisque. Yum!

IMG 7699

I’ll admit it, getting up at 5:45am this morning was rough. Lol. I was looking forward to my breakfast though!

IMG 7701

I took the kids to school, then to the gym for Hardline class. I’m proud of myself that I worked out. I definitely was not feeling like it.

Lunch was a turkey and avocado sandwich from Subway.

IMG 7702

 It’s going to be nice to spend a quiet night at home tonight!

Ever been to Cabo? Favorite spots?
