Happy (Belated) Mother’s Day! (And Happy 1st Post?)

Don’t worry, I remembered it yesterday- just didn’t have enough time to blog about my day. We enjoyed a nice day up in San Francisco and the weather was BEAUTIFUL.

China Beach.

Gorgeous, right? I wish I could spend more time up there- great weather (I love the fog), plenty of amazing food and an abundance of cultures all meshed together.

We started the day off in the upper Mission area and tried out a restaurant called Grub. Reasonable prices, bottomless Mimosas (Mom loved that!) and quality dishes. I had the Pulled Pork Sandwich that came with a side of french fries (they listed them as “pomme frittes”, but whatever- I’m not really into the whole fancy shmancy names for average foods).

A few of my friends are vegetarians and honestly I don’t understand how they can cope without meat… I mean, who could resist that ^^ ? They’re missing out big time. (But I guess that means there’s more for me!) 😉

We walked around the Mission for a while afterwards and stumbled upon a few cute shops. This one building was very charming on the first floor… But wow. The second level gave us all the creeps. There was definitely an eerie feeling to the peeling paint and huge level filled with old furniture. Looks like the set of the next cheesy horror film…

Just so you know, I really have no tolerance for horror films- gory movies aren’t my thing.

Anyways, after the “haunted” building, we went to Russian Hill in search of coffee. I had the best fro-yo of my life at this tiny place called Loving Cup. I can’t even begin how to describe how they make it. You pick from a list of toppings and they like, blend it in. The coffee is amazing too (or so I heard). Although it’s fairly expensive ($4.75 for a medium fro-yo), I’d say it was worth every. single. penny. 🙂 I have a picture, but it’s pretty bad because I took it after I had already indulged. But if you can get past the crappy photo quality, please just imagine: decadent, creamy, rich (my stomach thought it was ice cream) and flavorful.

This photo embarrasses me. It really doesn’t do the yogurt any justice. Oh well.

Anyways, hopefully we’ll be going to the city more often because summer is just around the corner! I can’t wait to get through finals and be freeeeeeee. 🙂

I’ll be sharing a recipe I made for Mother’s Day sometime this week!
