Season's Greetings

Sage, Dill, Rosemary, Oregano.....


Whenever I travel my better half always seems to sneak in little notes that I read when I'm away. They are those little cards that you get at the florist when you order flowers. You know which ones...some say Thank You, Get Well, Happy Birthday. Then he writes a saying on it or a joke..something to make me smile. They are also dated..one for each day of the trip. Today's card is "Seasons Greetings"...and lists different seasonings...."Sage, Dill, Rosemary...hope to see you on your plates".. Very sweet and very special. We check out of our hotel in San Diego and drive up the coast heading to Newport Beach with a stop in Laguna for a little lunch. We walk the pedestrian walk along the beach and snap some photos. Beautiful views!

We dine at 230 Forest Ave..
which won several awards for their wonderful offerings. We enjoy toasted Brie and tomato with pesto on a homemade baguette and a cilantro- lime chicken with arugula also served on a baguette. The basil in the pesto is so fresh and delicious! We share a cocktail (since we are still driving to our destination) ...a Pineapple-Cilantro Sparkler..which is pineapple vodka, cilantro, lime and Prosecco. Yum! Again, that cilantro really adds a wonderful twist to the cocktail. What a nice way to incorporate the "seasonings"...to our "Seasons Greetings " theme, (the way we started our day..from the card..remember?). We just begin browsing the shops when it begins to rain cats and dogs. We have our fill of the retail thing,, jump back into the car and take off for our hotel in Newport Beach.


The rain is on and off, it is quite chilly and our travel day got the best of us....We are pretty tired and decide to stay in and relax. Tomorrow is another day and there is plenty on the agenda! Aaah....a hot bath, feet up, a little TV and a good nights sleep....

Til tomorrow!
