Giveaway: Put a Raw Egg on It

giveaway - product review - recipe

When I visited Italy – long before T.A.D. – I discovered the secret to a really great pasta sauce: raw egg.

Davidson’s Safest Choice sent some coupons to try a dozen.  I found them at the local grocery store.

Since they’re pasteurized, I threw one in at the end of cooking a quick dinner…

We’ll probably be going-and-getting-em less, now that we received some coffee grounds from Groundwork

…and a gorgeous Thermos from Camelbak to put it in.  This little mama is SPILL PROOF and I’m in love.   Almost cried the other day when I left it at The Bungalow.

Went to see Birdman with Sam and John; mind blowing, as were these onion rings from The Oinkster afterwards.  (Their chili was solid as well.)

Been doing a little cooking!  What do you know?  On Halloween night I made a big batch of BBQ Jackfruit and shoved it into Toasted Bavarian Pretzel Rolls with coleslaw.  Glorious.

Have you heard of the minimalist fashion site un-fancy?  It’s been inspiring me to de-clutter, get rid of things we don’t use, upgrade items.  Simplify.  It feels good to change with the seasons.

Dockside at Playa Provisions

restaurant - salads

Playa Provisions is like my favorite Barbie of all time – Day-to-Night.  A totally different experience once the sun sets.

(My mentioning Barbie has nothing to do with the stunning blonde who was my date.)

DSCN6508 Kailey is a longtime blog friend (we both started our sites around the same time) and she now works for the PR company that reps Playa Provisions.  Dockside is their high-end restaurant open for happy hour, dinner, and weekend brunch.
