Week 62 Menu…and Moving!

This is it. We are moving this week. Come Thursday we will no longer be San Diegans…it’s off to the Bay Area we go! Nate will be doing a post-doc at Stanford and we’ll be starting a new life in Northern California. I am SUPER excited about all the great things to come and about living in the Bay Area. But I am definitely sad this week…about leaving San Diego, which is an amazing place to live, but more about leaving our dear friends. But, as one of those friends pointed out to me, if you weren’t sad when you left a place, THAT would be sad.

Yes, that’s my studly surfer husband coming in from a sunset surf. Seriously, how could anyone NOT want to live in San Diego?!?!

Since I am in the throes of packing, it’s pretty much impossible to cook. Here’s my “menu”.

– Maybe eating at Lindsay’s depending on how the day goes

– Eat out

– Eat out

Pizza, to feed the slaves, I mean friends, loading our truck – ordering from Regents Pizza, which is AWESOME by the way

– Unloading the truck…who knows?!?!

– Eat out?

– Eat out?

Geesh, this is worse than when I had a baby! 🙂 Please post your menus for one another. I’m so grateful I have such amazingly supportive readers who always post menus. You guys rule.

To all my San Diego friends…we’re gonna miss you!

    Tuesday: Shrimp salad tacos (Everyday Mexican by Rick Bayless) and green salad

    Wednesday: Chicken tortilla soup

    Thursday: Steak, baked potato and a vegetable with a salad

    Saturday: My best friend (we met when we lived in SD) is coming for a visit, so I’ll whip up something for us that’s kid friendly.

    You’ll love Palo Alto and surrounding area. There’s lots of “foodie” things to explore. Good luck! Julie

    P.S. I found your blog through “Hostess with the Mostess,” which was linked on a friend of a friend’s blog. Random!

    About the asparagus. I love it, but can hardly stand the pee smell. I saw that someone commented about it. It happens almost immediately. It is really kind of a disgusting smell.
    Any way to get around that.
    My in-laws live in Poway. I am a pizza fan and so I will be making a trek to la jolla next time to enjoy me some of that yummy stuff. Any other great SD restaurants to try??
    Cafe deThai in Poway is sooooo yummy.
