I had the chance to spend a night and a day in Carmel this weekend. We basically ate our way through the weekend, of course! This chocolate covered pretzel is actually a pastry twist and it was yummy…BUT it got me thinking…ARE there chocolate-covered soft pretzels in the world? Because if there are, I want one!
On Friday night we ate at Clint Eastwood’s restaurant Mission Ranch. The food was delicious. When we first arrived at the restaurant, we parked in a spot next to another spot with a “No Parking” sign in front of it. As we walked away from the car, a security guard appeared and told us that we couldn’t park there, that the sign was for both spots. “That is ‘the owner’s’ spot,” he told us. So of course we started pestering him, “Is Clint coming tonight?!?!” The security guard smiled and said he never knows ahead of time if Clint will make an appearance. Later that night I went to change Owen’s diaper…lo and behold the parking spot was occupied! While we never caught a glimpse of the man himself, we loved that the menu was chock full of meat and that ‘the owner’s’ car was a Ford Excursion. It was all so very Clint Eastwood.
Menu time already? Goodness. I didn’t do either soup recipe last week, so I’m putting them both back on the menu!
– Happy Valentine’s Day! I need to figure out what we’re doing that night, I think I’ll just make something simple for the girls and Nate and I will just have take-out at home…something simple with a good chocolate dessert!
