Mexican, Beer, and Baseball

Have you entered my Bob’s Red Mill giveaway yet?

Hi friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend; we took advantage of the weather and spent a lot of time outside.

Friday night we hit up a Mexican joint for dinner called Cancun. They, as with many restaurants in the area, pride themselves on their local, organic ingredients. I got a humungo salad that puts Chipotle to shame!

They also have a ridiculous salsa bar.

Saturday we played in wine country. Though we didn’t go for any tastings, we just spent the day walking around Healdsburg and Santa Rosa; they’re such cute little towns. We stopped at SHED for lunch which was such a fun place! Not only do they have a small cafe and take out food, they also sell kitchen, gardening, and other home goods plus they have their own fermentation bar. You know I got their home brewed black tea ginger kombucha.

I loved how colorful the salads were! My favorite was on the left; golden beets, watermelon radish, asparagus, and lima beans in a light vinaigrette. It was a bit pricey there for what it was, but everything tasted great.

On our way back home, we hit a ton of traffic. Luckily it was as we approached Petaluma, so we took a detour a grabbed some beer while we waited for the traffic to die down.

Not a bad way to pass the time ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yesterday was for baseball. We opted for the Giants’ opening weekend instead of opening day and the weather was amazing!

AT&T Park San Francisco Giants

The game started off pretty slow but the Giants’ ended up pulling out a big win in the bottom of the 10th with a walk off home run! Funny story.. I was at an Orioles game with my dad and Nathan 8 years ago. My dad and I almost never left games early but Nathan had to get up real early so we made an exception. We ended up missing a walk off home run which, at that point, my dad had never seen. To this day, he still won’t let Nathan live it down, even though he’s seen quite a few! It’s been a running joke ever since.

At least he’s happy ๐Ÿ˜‰ Seeing the walk off definitely made me miss my dad. I wish that he was there with us! With that, I leave you some Orioles lovin’.

  1. I’m about 99% sure we would be the best of friends have we lived near each other. I mean the fact that you guys decided to grab a few beers while traffic died down is awesome AND your a baseball fan. It’s almost like your my long last blogging twins ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Both the takeout salads and the Mexi salads look so great. And ahh baseball! I can’t wait for my first Sox game! Funny story, Nathan’s sunglasses look just like our 90+ Cellars sunglasses. Don’t you have some that are similar? I’m glad you got in your weekend beer time, I had some on Saturday afternoon. Tried some great new IPAs and double bitter Belgian ales!

  3. What a great weekend! You missed out on so many amazing wineries in Healdsburg! That’s one of our favorite wine tasting areas and towns. So fun! Lots of good breweries around there too ๐Ÿ™‚
