I have the coolest blog readers !!!! We each ordered a flight – 7 girls x 3 glasses = yum!
It’s1:38 am East Coast time and I’m pooped, but here’s a quick recap of the day:
We had a 1.5 hour layover in Dallas and enjoyed eating our freshly made lunch. OH but first, we left the house without the lunch this morning (and the surprise bagels for the blog dinner!) and had to turn around and go back. It cost us about 45 minutes, but we still made the flight.
We ate our yogurt and blueberries around 11:30 EC time (my camera was deep under the seat in front of me) but we finally got to eat our lunches in Dallas along with a cup of hot tea and picked up some wireless!
A little airport blogging –
Then the timing got crazy. We ate lunch around 12:30 EC time and wanted to wait until we got to SF to have a mid-afternoon snack to tide us to dinner. But on the BART (subway) around 6:30 EC time we were starving and snacked on some trial mix –
Once checked into our hostel (we’re staying at a hostel for the first night to save some money. It’s quite interesting, but we do have a private room. Tomorrow we move to the Westin for the conference!)
So anyways, once checked in, we were absolutely starving at about 7:30 EC time (4:30 here) and needed a mini meal to hold us until our dinner 3 hours away. We were looking for a great cafe to get a sandwich and stumbled upon the famous Boudin Sourdough cafe near Union Square. PERFECT!!!
It is quite chilly, so we decided on soup. We didn’t realize it was a huge bowl (and not a small cup) AND came with bread when we ordered a veggie + cheese sandwich too.
And the sandwich we split –
We ate it ALL!!! In like 10 minutes. It had been like 6 hours since our last meal and the food tasted SO good!
After about 2 hours of walking around the city, we headed back to get ready for our dinner (and surprise surprise our appetites returned!)
Greer, Nicole, Me, Jackie, Brittany and Erin. They are all fabulous and I’m so sad I live 3,000 miles away. (And I think they are making plans to be friends without me 🙁 )
I had a flight of different red blends . Mmmmm! I also tried Mom’s whites in the background.
And some bread (which was just OK) with a basil dipping sauce –
This being my fourth meal of the day, I wasn’t super hungry and ordered a salad . It came with the most amazing blue cheese ever!! It tasted like marshmallows !!
I also ordered the Roasted Cauliflower with Raisins, Nuts, Lemon + Parsley because it just sounded so good. I was thrilled to find it to be rather fresh and not drenched in oil and butter.
I cleared both of my plates!
Last, but not least (!), I brought everyone bagels made by the husband! Hope they are as good having traveled cross country 🙂
It’s now 1:52 am and I’ve been up since 6 – and I’m due to go running with the famous BethT first thing tomorrow across the Golden Gate so I better hit the hay (sharing a bed with mom tonight for the first time since maybe 5th grade!?!?)
