Farmers Market

Sunday, June 27, 2010

I had a great time exploring the Hillcrest farmers market today, I had to do a double trip back to the car to leave a few bags of fruits and veggies because they were so heavy! This was one of the best farmers market in San Diego that I have been to, I fell in love!

Here are some pictures! I gotta go to church soooooon! very soon.

I was feeling snacky, but the first thing I saw was the GreenFix organic smoothie booth. The ingredients put into that smoothie sounded perfect. I had a few beers the night before and I felt the need to detox a bit! I sipped and samples many fruits and vendors. There were so many samples!


These must be the cutest strawberries. I've never seen them so small, and I think these strawberries must be the real deal. Organic, local, and pesticide free!

I bought four bulks! I don't know what hit me, but I'm looking forward to eating it with my breakfast and snack tomorrow.

I was really tempted to buy a pot of herbs to cook with, and mostly to brew along with my tea. I saw a different assortment of mint leaves that I thought would go perfect with a light grain salad or an iced tea. mmmm. Maybe next week!

low and behold....Garlic Scapes! I was so excited when I found these, now I just need to find recipes that I can use them with.

Samples are key! if it weren't for the samples, I would've never bought a cantelope. They were so sweet and juicy. It so refreshing, and usually I have a love-hate relationship with melons, but these were epic!

I didn't want to leave the market without trying out some local eats, I wanted something exciting. Out of all things, this vegan "pasta" caught my eye.

The noodles are made from zucchinis (which I bought) so maybe I can recreate this dish at home. It was very good! I loved the added mint to the pasta. yum

along with a vegan coconut cream pie.
The crust reminded me of Larabars and I thought it was neat how the "cream" filling was made from cashews and coconut meat. sooo awesome. I don't think I'd mind going vegan at all!

Shoooot! I am late for church, gotta drive!

I love the fact that our dog has gained weight since her arrival a few months ago, because she was so fragile and thin. I love her.

Today she was so excited to see me after I paid a visit, her breath stunk, so I restrained her from licking my face. disguist. oh how will I ever deal with my baby?...err, maybe it isn't the time or place to think about that.

My mom has faithfully been feeding our cowdog Lily all random sorts of things, this has been happening gradually. At first my mom got upset that I bought her wet dog food, because that would throw off the normal liking of her dry food she eats everyday. (When my mom left, I secretly fed it to her though, she liked it!)

But over the past few weeks, I've been seeing wonder bread, rice, chicken....and today I see an omelette in her bowl! WTH?

I guess it's okay? I'm only rationalizing it out with the fact that I've seen owners feed their pets peanut butter, but I heard chocolate could potientially kill a dog.

Maybe I'm just gulliable. I need to check Google.


neglectful bloggie I am

Tuesday, June 22, 2010

Although I've been such a neglectful blogger for the past...I don't know... month, I felt no pressure whatsoever to post. I just went along with the flow, and it also didn't help that I had no access to the interweb through my laptop. I survived through out the day with my phone, it was enough to go on facebook and browse a few blogs here and there.

yikes! not to mention my reader has filled up to 800 unread posts since I've been M.I.A. Just the thought of that overwhelms me, but you know what? I just need to hit "clear" and all will be better. It's like throwing away school work that I've accumalated throughout the years, I can be a pack-rat like that!

I feel horrible because I'm pretty sure I missed some important stuff going on in the lives of my favorite bloggies, but it'd take forever to catch up!

I am tired, I don't know where to start off. Have you seen Toy Story 3 yet?
Well today I had a star service to attend to, it's an 8 hour workshop where we learn about customer service. It's a complete waste of time, but whatever, I get paid.

But the guy in charge totally sounds like Lotso the Bear! I thought that was hilarious. He's a mix between creepy and lovable. mmm?

Last week Ashley and I decided to hit up SmashBurger in La Jolla after a successful shopping in the wee hours of the morning. Rare for Ashley considering she wakes up at 1pm. We were shopping for outfits for some potraits we wanted to give our fathers for fathers day. We just ended up buying group photos.

Mediocore experience with the photographer = mediocore photographs. She had us do ackward poses that made me feel like as if we were a lesbian couple, Ash agreed. Although we've known each other for six years, it's still uncomfortable when we invade one anothers personal space. 

We just ended up shooting with Ashleys camera at La Jolla Cove which turned out great. Photos to ensue soon.

Anyway...we went to SmashBurger.

After debating whether I should get a burger (it is called SmashBurger afterall) or a salad because I wanted to keep it lite. I ended up with a salad.

It contained smashchicken, tomatoes, mixed greens, pumkin seeds, sunflower seeds, craisins, raisin, goat cheese, and balsamic vinagrette.

Verdict: Not so great! I finished 1/3 and ate the rest of the chicken. What a waste of $$.

We had the suddern urge for something sweet and settled with the Gelato shop across the street. With the intent of sharing a gelato, once Ashley walked in and saw the array of colors and flavors, she exclaimed
"Nevermind, I am getting my OWN cup!"

Medium cup with Cookies n' Cream and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie. Being the piggy I am, I polished it in 5 minutes.

Later that night I saved my appetite for Ranchos with Darwin. I was looking forward to dining at this little Mexican gem in Northpark.

My first experience was with Angel. Oh how I missed this kid grown-up!!

What an adorable mexican!

Amazing lobster with a side of rice, beans, guac, and tortillas.

After that day, I went to Ranchos for a total of three a week. Yikes!

I almost went by myself yesterday...almost.

My second time was with Darwin and his buddy Joey. I love the fact that they serve fresh tortilla chips and salsa. I love their salsa, it has the right kick of spice!

I am also in love with the decor, really adorable and yellow. I've come to conclusion that I like wearing purple, yellow, maybe green, and I'm starting to branch out to blue with my clothing. Just a tangent I'd like you to know.

I got the carne asada and shrimp combo with rice, guac, and beans. Good! Not as good as the lobster, the meat in this dish was bland. The sides made up for it though.

This waiter/hostess is just...really cool. Great presence.
So cute. I have a Rancho Daddy and a Kebab Daddy, ha.

By this point, I am just so tired to write. But I love this place and they have so many vegan, vegetarian, carnivore options! I want to try em' all!

Third time with Ashley I got the Papas Ranchos! yummy.

I'm so pooped. I was anxious all night because I was afraid my alarm wouldn't go off. I had to wake up early for work and had a dream I was late (with the 30 minutes of sleep I had).



personal reference

They say it's not okay to drunk dial because for godsake you don't make a fool of yourself, and the same goes for blogging when you are sleep deprived and just don't know where your head is. Thank goodness I can delete this post when I do feel like I am making a fooool of myself. Or maybe I'd want to keep this post to look back and laugh at myself

Which seems to be all the time, at least in my right state of mind.

Actually, I don't know how to even start writing about what's on my mind. Sometimes I can't understand myself. Sometimes I don't make sense. That's all the time. Can I just tell you that I like ice cream?

Especially when I am feeling some sort of hurt or frustration, in the past, cream and sugar was always there to comfort me from the frozen section.

Lack of sleep will cause emotional distress, I found myself breaking down, because I probably needed sleep, yeah, that's what I told myself tonight. I put on a good face (I think) when a whirlwind of emotion is scattered throughout my noggin. I tell myself I need to sleep on it, that's just like sayin' gimme some mo' ice cream and just let me forget.

I want to forget.

[these photos were from a few weeks ago]
I've learned to deal with what I'm facing besides shoving it in my face!

large fudge chunks
A reeses cup

White chocolate chunks

what? is this what I think it is? Somewhere in the world someone loves me.

oh no she didn't.

Looking back at these photos distracted me from the situation with ooooh and yuuuum.

The power of Madonna Ice Cream

On one note, I don't know why I am upset, nothing has happened yet.
I can see rejection a mile away.
I am such a kid.

Where's my dog, I want to play with her.

Where's my drink? I need it.

Oh I kid.
