Direct quote from a text message my mom sent me last week:
“When I come to California to visit you I have two requests. Sourdough. Ghirardelli.”
I could never disappoint my own mother so I did the selfless thing and ate sourdough and Ghirardelli with her.
PS do you like our twinner outfits?
Sourdough in the form of a grilled cheese sandwich for her and a pesto chicken sandwich for me. I always get mad at myself for forgetting about pesto because if I could simply just remember it then I would eat it way more often.
Our next stop had Brooke licking her lips the entire time.
Rocky Road Sundae and I am pretty sure the kind people making the sundae knew I needed extra hot fudge yesterday so they just went ahead and loaded that baby up.
By the way my mom took the picture of the sundae, she is quite the food photographer if you ask me.
And just because.
Double just because. We walked along the water for a long time before heading down to Palo Alto to go walk around the Stanford outdoor mall.
My mom’s sister (my aunt that we always get to be with) lives in Palo Alto so we got to go have a big family dinner there just like the good old days when I lived in Utah. My aunt always makes or orders in the best food for our dinner and last night we had Chinese and the shrimp in the background were addicting. And in case you were wondering my fortune cookie said, “You will never get a running injury again, you will be super fast with some hard work and you will win the lottery very soon.”
No waking up at dawn for me today because my mom is here so that means I have someone to watch Brooke while I go for a run. My goal is to get 10 hours of sleep. No, make that 11.
What is going to be the best part about your Tuesday?
Favorite city ever to go visit?
Hot fudge or caramel on your sundae (or both or peanut butter)?
The cherry on top of sundaes…delicious or skip it?
-I skip it. It just cannot even compare to the goodness of the ice-cream below.
