An Eggselent Visit

Hello my friends! So this might be a shorter post than usual just because all I have been doing since my girlfriend was visiting has been working. I have worked 50 hours in the last five shifts which is nuts! As most of you know, my girlfriend was in town a little ago, and I must say, I am SO glad she decided to come and see me, even if it was for a few days. We were able to do so much in that little of time, mind you most of it was eating places, but hey, still good! Plus, we are going to meet up in Los Angeles on Saturday for 10 days so she can do some work with friends out there and see some of my family as well and I cannot wait to do all of that!

Now for food! The night she got in we went to a very tasty Indian restaurant,which I forgot to take pictures of because we were so hungry that I completely spaced it, but I will get it another time. On the Sunday she was here we tried going out for brunch and we completely forgot it was Palm Sunday, so EVERYONE was out for brunch. We went to three different places before finally sticking to one because the previous ones had a minimum wait time of 45 minutes. So, if you like breakfast you should definitely check out The Village Coffee Shop in Boulder, CO. You go in and just wait for a table to open up, sit down, order and the kitchen is right there so you can see your food being made.

This is what I had! A Denver omelette with onion, peppers and ham with hash browns on the side. SO yummy.

What my girlfriend had: a tomato, lettuce and cheese sandwich with chips and potato salad on the side.

We shared a massive plate-sized chocolate-chip pancake, which I ate most of. I was SO hungry that I basically finished anything she did not eat and I was kind of proud of myself, in a weird kinda way, for eating all that food. 

Well that just about sums it up! My next post will probably be from Los Angeles, as I am sure we will be going to a lot of good places to eat. I really CANNOT wait to go there to be with my girlfriend and just be around good people, her friends are pretty rad.

Hope you all are having a good week so far and may it be bountiful and super bueno!
I will catch you on the flip-flop lataaaaaaah!

Happy, Happy Birthday!

Hello friends! So after this I will be completely caught up with places to blog about, which means I can finally go places and start posting on a regular basis and not do a post about somewhere I was a month ago!
As you all know, I was just in Minneapolis visiting my girlfriend and I was able to be there and celebrate her birthday with her, which was a big deal for me and probably and even bigger deal for her. Her sister (surrogate) had a birthday as well, so on May 29th, her family did a joint celebration for both of them with presents and yummy things. I am was so grateful to be apart of that with all of her family there and just to enjoy the happiness of being with people and celebrating.

On her ACTUAL birthday, which was March 31st, I took her out to breakfast at one our favorite places and just decided to get A LOT of food, since we both LOVE eating. If you live in Minneapolis, or have the chance to visit, I would HIGHLY recommend going to The Bad Waitress for breakfast. Minneapolis is such a great city and also with amazing places to eat, most of which are locally owned, so you know when you eat at most of the places you are supporting a small business, which is awesome.

Tell me you would not eat this MASSIVE pancake with fruit and chocolate chips on top and inside on it? This is what my girlfriend was craving so this is what she got, which is a plate sized pancake; I think she ate about half of it. She also got a chai latte and a milkshake!

I was VERY hungry as well, so I also got plate size blueberry pancake which I did not finish.
Now this breakfast burrito is BY FAR the BEST I have ever had in my entire life, which is saying a lot because I LOVE breakfast burritos. It has two eggs with your choice of two ingredients, which I got oven-roasted tomatoes and vegan sausage, and your choice of cheese (I got smoked Gruyere).

All in all, this trip was such a good break from working and a nice change of scenery. Sometimes life is hard and stupid but you just have to know there is something good to come and that is the way we feel every time we see each other. If you are in a long distance relationship, it can be very taxing on the soul, knowing in your whole being that you want to be with that person, wherever they are. Just know that time WILL come and the world wont be as stupid when you are with the one you love.

Well that's all for now! I hope I did not rant to much about personal stuff but I hope I brought some insight on how hard it can be sometimes. My girlfriend is making a visit next weekend, so we will definitely go to some yummy places to post more on, if I can't go somewhere this upcoming week.

Have a great rest of the weekend and I will catch you on the flip-flop lataaaaaaah!

A Home Away from Home

Hello friends! So I am sitting in the airport, on my way home from visiting my girlfriend. It gets harder and harder to say goodbye to her and Minneapolis just feels like home for me, so that is another reason why I do not want to leave. I thought I would grace you all with another post, might as well since I have the time right? So this place is yet another one in my town of Lyons, CO and I must say we have some good eats!

This place is called Julie's Thai Kitchen and these three meals were what we had (my mom, my girlfriend and I) and this was soooo delicious. This is where we went for dinner that same day of my last post, so we had an awesome day of food. 

This will be a short post just because I did a big one yesterday, I hope you all are having a super bueno week so far and that you never take anything for granted in your life that you are privileged to.

Well that is all for now! I will catch you on the flip-flop lataaaaaaaah.

Blast from the Past

Hello friends! Sorry I have such a sporadic schedule for posting anything, I promise I will get on more of a schedule now that I have actually been to some cool places for food. The last week has been one of the best weeks for me. I have been in Minneapolis visiting my most amazing girlfriend and her family, the more I am here the more I want to move here, this is such a good city and it just feels like home. With that being said, let's get in to the food! This will be from somewhere I have already been to and posted on here but there is just such good vibes from this place and t is really good for breakfast things.

If you are ever in Lyons, CO you must check out Barking Dog Cafe, it is right on Main Street, but you can basically walk there from my house or hop on my golf cart and not waste any gas if you don't feel like walking; for a better description refer to my older post "Come, Sit, Stay". Now are you ready for the food? Good!

This one is sooooooo tasty with an egg, bacon and cheese; one of my favorites here.

This is a great option for all you veggie lovers out there with egg, tomato and cream cheese; a little messy but tasty none the less.

All of my life I have been a meat eater, usually every meal I would eat meat and I have slowly started to realize that I don't need meat at EVERY meal to enjoy food. Lately I have been trying to reduce my meat intake to one meal a day, and I must say, it is working quite well! I feel like I have more enjoyment in eating, with trying new things that I have never been accustomed to and trying new types of food and not just American food, mind you that I was very sheltered with what types of food I ate as a child. One of my new favorite kinds of food is Indian, I just love all the flavor that goes into it and how magically the spices and flavor coexist in one universe.

This is me being goofy! 

Thank you all for reading this, I will try to post on a more regular basis but there is more tasty places to come! I hope you all are having a super bueno week so far and a better one coming up.

I will catch you on the flip-flop lataaaaaah!
