eating marathon part II.

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

day two was a breeze compared to the first day.

first stop: cucas mexican restaurant. the sit down one isn't as amazing as the hole in the wall shack is, but still best burritos in the world.

second stop: martha green's for dessert.

final stop: nubi yogurt. since it was our last stop i think we went a little picture crazy...

ashley i'm gonna miss you! don't leave...your visit barely even counted as a visit, it was way too short. and ed you've been here forever, but you shouldn't leave either.

we still have so many places to go and we can't if you guys go back to texas and florida. so stay, jus a little while longer....

eating marathon part I.

i think i've broken the record for the most food i've ever eaten in two consecutive days...

ashley is here visiting! but her trip is short so we had to jam pack all the best eating into two short days. it definitely was a challenge, but i think we handled it well.

first stop: orean express. a completely vegetarian, healthy fast food place.

luckily for me jp introduced me to this place and even talked me into trying the soy soft serve. surprisingly its probably some of the best soft serve i've ever eaten.

the plan was for a cafe called fatty's to be our second stop, but sadly it is closed on mondays.

so our second stop ended up being: cheesecake factory. the only reason we went was to get frozen iced mango drinks and the avocado egg rolls.

third stop: dots for some cupcakes.

of course by this time we all felt like we couldn't possibly eat anymore. but it was just time for a break. a break for some shopping at the americana at brand.

fourth and final stop of the day: the boat for some thai food.

and so that was yesterdays part I of the marathon. check back tomorrow for part II.

happy birthday vin.

i was looking through my cell phone photos and i came across something interesting...

i always complain about how there is no good mexican food in the midwest and when i'm at andrews i crave it.

can you tell which dish is from michigan and which dish is from california?

san diego.

i guess you could say that yesterday was beach day part II. but instead of the OC we headed down to san diego.

our first stop was little italy for lunch. we ate at this little restaurant called vincenzo ristorante italiano. the food was really good and made me want to go back to italy.

after lunch we went to get some gelato, but the place we went to was completely out of gelato for the day. michelle and ed got some fruit stuff that looked pretty good, but i really wanted gelato. unfortunately i couldn't find any anywhere else that i wanted, so mello and i ended up splitting this...

and i also ate canoli. but i was a little disappointed, it wasn't as good as i was hoping it would be.

after eating we headed to coronado to go to the beach. ed spent most of the afternoon sleeping.

michelle, mello and i ended up spending a lot of the afternoon looking for sand dollars. i couldn't believe how many were out on the beach yesterday.

we stayed out on the beach until dinner time. once we started getting hungry again we headed out to oceanside to meet up with elly [our long lost andrews friend] for dinner.

elly took us out to this mexican resturant that had amazing burritos...they were huge!

michelle was the only one who completely finished her entire burrito.

after those burritos we were soo full. so we decided to walk it off by taking a stroll on the pier.

elly almost never smiles in pictures...he finally smiled in one photo, but of course he did it when everyone was looking at him and not the camera.

one of elly's friends caught some really cool looking shark fish things. i'm not really sure what they are, but they look kinda like a mix between sharks and sting rays...

as the sun started going down the light got really pretty. everything was soo nice last night and once again the weather was perfect.

unfortunately the night had to end and we had to go back home sometime...but we had one more unexpected stop...

yougurtland...we couldn't resist. =]

it was good to see you elly. thanks for showing us around. i'm coming back before the summers over!
