At Bobby’s parents’ house

So far the trip is going incredibly well.  The only downside is that we are both realizing how much we miss our families!  I think eventually we will probably end up back on the east coast.

After I posted yesterday at the airport I had more apples and random bites of things that I’d brought.  I didn’t take pictures.

Last night Bobby’s mom prepared an amazing dinner.  She’s a wonderful cook.  The first course was Stone Crab:

The next course was salad (times 3) – Caesar with chickpeas:

And then we had Japanese Kare (curry) – I went back for seconds on the curry but didn’t have much of the rice:

My desserts were a whole bunch of grapes (more than pictured) and a dove chocolate:

And I’m going to run through today’s eats quickly too because it’s getting late…

Breakfast was 1 cup Fiber 1, 1 cup blueberry yogurt, 1/2 cup blueberries, and a strawberry:

Bobby’s mom and I split a persimmon before lunch:

Lunch was yudofu (soft tofu soup), salad, and miso soup:

Snack (honeycrisp apple):

Frozen yogurt (strawberry and plain with strawberry topping) shared with Bobby:

Dinner was a whole bunch of seafood (I did finish all of this) in a delicious garlicky olive oil white wine sauce.  It was actually quite light.  I also had a few bites of Bobby’s pumpkin ravioli.  Yum!

We saw Quantum Solace after dinner – it was okay.

When we got back we were pretty hungry.  Bobby got Taco Bell but I wanted something yummier – so I had a lot of these delicious amazing Japanese vegetables that Bobby’s mom made.  Imagine this, but times at least 3.  It had this spicy dressing with a bit of sesame oil.  So good.  And I had some grapes.

Then we shared a honeycrisp apple and more grapes.

And now I’m still having more grapes.  Today was pretty awesome, foodwise.  I’m having a great time here.  Tomorrow we’re having a small party and I’m sure the food will be delicious icon smile At Bobbys parents house  Have a great weekend!  What are your plans?

    The seafood, especially the stone crab, looks amazing!

    Today I’ll be stacking wood so that I can have extra butter for king crab fest at my neighbors house tonight!

    So glad you’re enjoying the time with family. So, I am just curious. If you’re from N.J. and Bobby’s from Houston how did you meet and how did you end up in California?

    WOW it looks like she’s an Awesome cook! Anything with more than one course is gourmet to me! Would you ever want to live on the east coast for reasons other than being closer to family? Family is super important, don’t get me wrong, I’ve just never been to the east coast and was wondering other awesome things about it!

    Enjoy your VayCay!!!
