A Week in Review

Another busy week on the west coast. Rather than filling your head with mundane nonsense, here's some pretty pictures from this past week :) 

A REAL meal! Since we moved here, we have pretty much been eating out every night. We were so pumped to be able to cook our first meal in the new place. I took the opportunity to try out some new recipes. We had Coca-Cola chicken, ranch roasted red potatoes, and Cesar salad. De-lish. The Coca-Cola chicken is an old recipe, but one that has always intrigued me. It has just three ingredients: a can of Coca-Cola, a cup of ketchup, and chicken breast. That's it! The sauce ends up tasting like a sweet BBQ sauce. It was outstanding - can't wait to try it again!

ANOTHER real meal! In my best efforts to try and re-use ingredients, the next night we had chicken fried rice with broccoli, peas, carrots, egg, and garlic. It was SO good and beat the heck out of any other fried rice we've had recently. 

Beautiful Weather. It has been a little cooler here lately, and feels more and more like fall! On Saturday, I rode along with Spencer to run a few errands. This was my view from the passenger's seat. Can't beat it!

A relaxing weekend. Thursday night, a new friend of ours took us out for dinner and drinks in our little area of San Diego. Friday night, Spencer and I went on a date to a little Italian food restaurant walking distance to our house. From it's appearance, it totally looked like one of those places that is featured on any hidden camera show, but we'd heard good things and decided to give it a try. It was actually very good, and we had a great time. We lounged around watching football for the rest of the day, and late Saturday night we went to see "Money Ball" with a friend. Sunday, I cleaned the house a little and did some DIY crafting, while Spencer played golf at the beautiful Torrey Pines Golf Course. He had to get signed up the day before in order to play on Sunday, and that's when I took this picture. You can see the ocean in the background :) 

I would imagine that the remainder of today will hold lots of doing nothing, and lots of DVR. Perfect top-off to the weekend :)
