because this is all really about eating good food

the big weekend, part five (and now I am done!)

San Francisco: city of a zillion amazing restaurants. Each day we had so many fine choices of where to eat, knowing every choice would be a good one, a feeling I just don't have where I live now.

Here are some highlights:
Dinner at Overland near the beach.

Roasted beets with goat cheese and walnuts

Heirloom tomato salad

Scenes from the farmers market:

Vietnamese food at The Slanted Door

The POST MARATHON MEAL! Tapas and paella at Esperento in the Mission

steamed mussels, tortilla espanola, and (oh my watering mouth) these thinly sliced grilled artichokes drenched in lemon and garlic


This guy came and sang to our table just because he heard I had run a marathon that day (just kidding)

After dinner, I didn't feel like I was done. So, I made Chris bring me here, where I ordered one of each. Cheers!

I'm so glad there is more than one post and more than marathon pics! I expected nothing less, lets be honest.

The pics are beautiful, the recapped experience of stepping back into a former life-well, I can feel it all with you.

And the video??? OMG, Chris! Our girls on you tube!!!
