A few days by the sea does a girl good. This beach is one of my favorite stretches of sand in Northern California and little known. Lucky to have a friend with access. Batteries recharged by the sound of waves, big starry skies and the smell of salt air. ahhhh.
In celebration of another birthday my friend, her daughter and I decided dinner and a show. Campo www.camporeno.com before the show was delightful. Kale Salad, Frito Misto, and Pumpkin
Gnocchi were each perfect. The show was Grease, a favorite. Still singing Beauty School Dropout today in my head. Counting another year a success.
I recently was in Chicago and enjoyed a Pretzel Burger with spicy mustard, caramelized onions and mushrooms. I really wanted to share those favors at home with my family so I found a great pretzel recipe from Food Network magazine this month. The pretzels turned out great and the burgers topped them off perfectly alongside a cold Oktoberfest beer.
