145.2...The Longest Day
I’m a bit behind in blogging….things have been crazy around here! Wednesday night we went to Firenze for dinner. My husband and I split a Chopped Caesar salad:
I ordered the Polpette di Pollo (handmade chicken meatballs, baked, served with marinara over spaghetti):
I had never had this dish before and loved it! I only ate one of the meatballs because they were HUGE!
My husband and I hit the road for our flight to Acapulco, Mexico for a friend’s wedding. We parked our car at the Cross Border Express and walked across the bridge to Tijuana for our flight.
We had a little snack of quesadillas and chilaquiles at the airport.
We flew to Acapulco through Mexico City. We arrived at the Princess Hotel and checked in. Dinner was at their Italian restaurant. We split a Caesar and Caprese salad.
The Caesar wasn’t very good but the Caprese was great.
My entree was homemade pasta with shrimp and zucchini.
It was our friend’s birthday, so we enjoyed some of his chocolate cake for dessert.
Friday’s breakfast was Huevos Rancheros.
I did end up pouring the ranchero sauce all over it. The eggs were good but it wasn’t the best Huevos Rancheros I’ve ever had.
It was time to enjoy our first full day in Acapulco.
The weather was hot and humid but we were able to enjoy our lunch at the pool restaurant.
Guacamole, chips and salsa:
I ordered Ceviche:
It was fabulous.
Later that evening, we went to the rehearsal dinner. There was a buffet complete with all sorts of different types of food. I had to roll with the tacos, chips, guac and salsas of course!
The ladies and I:
My husband and I:
For dessert, I went with churros and caramel. Yum!
Saturday’s breakfast was two eggs over easy, bacon and hash browns. Perfect.
We went to the pool and beach for a bit. I brought my ceviche lunch to enjoy in our room.
Then it was time to head to the wedding! We enjoyed cocktails and appetizers before the ceremony.
The wedding was stunning. Everything was beautiful.
Our meal started with a cold cream soup:
The main entree was fish in grape leaves.
It was fabulous! I loved it!
Dessert was coconut ice cream cake.
My friend Melody and I:
We left the wedding around 1 AM and came home to sleep for 3 hours before having to head to the airport for our flight back to Tijuana. We had breakfast at the airport.
More eggs and chilaquiles:
We arrived back to San Diego after crossing the bridge and picked up Jersey Mike’s for lunch.
Italian with red pepper spread. My favorite.
This is where things got crazy. We came home long enough to change and headed out for our flight to Oakland to see Game 7 of the NBA Finals!
I had hot wings that were pretty darn good.
We were cheering for the Warriors and sadly they did not beat the Cavs. It was beyond awesome to be there though!!! Right after the game we flew home. It felt like the longest day of my life. We had been at a wedding in Acapulco, several flights and NBA Game 7 all in the same day. Crazy.
My mom was still in town (she had stayed with my daughter) so I took them to lunch at Luna Grill.
I could only eat half my salad. I wasn’t feeling well. Thought I was coming down with a cold or something.
Monday night I went to a work-related event for my husband at the Grand Del Mar. Our dinner started with Arugula and Roasted Portobello Salad with Romesco, Goat Cheese and Meyer Lemon Oil:
Dinner was Herbed Bone-In Chicken Breast with Truffle Potato Pie, Roasted Beets, and Quail Egg:
Dessert was Chocolate Mousse with Hazelnut Praline, Crispy Chocolate and Passion Fruit Sorbet:
I barely ate anything and by this point at the chills. I left immediately and went home. Ugh…it was more than just a cold. Maybe I ate something funky in Mexico? I don’t know.
This morning I struggled to get out of bed at the crack of dawn to take my daughter to the bus for her two week sleep away camp. Breakfast was toast.
I said goodbye to my daughter and went back home to get into bed, where I’ve been all day.
Lunch was half a toasted bagel with cream cheese.
I am feeling a bit better. Hubby is on his way home with chicken soup. :)
When was the last time you were in bed all day sick? I cannot even remember!
