Baby Update: nothing! I’m 3 days overdue today, UGH. The baby is still comfy and isn’t showing any signs of wanting to come into this world. Wyatt is making his mommy very antsy (like I’m not impatient enough already)!
My mom has been here since April 4th and yesterday my sis arrived from Denver to join us. We walked around Fillmore Street in San Francisco and worked up an appetite. We headed into Roam Artisan Burgers to get our fix. They have a great burger menu with a large variety of patty options. You could get anything from bison to veggie. I opted for a grass-fed beef burger with aged white cheddar, oil and vinegar slaw, and house sauce (similar to thousand island). It was juicy deliciousness on a bun!
We also split the Fry Fecta, a combo of regular fries, sweet potato fries, and zucchini-onion strings. I have to say, they were all perfectly cooked an seasoned. The three of us quickly devoured them.
They also have house made sodas. I decided to order the Meyer lemon version. It was perfectly refreshing for the warm day. A little sweet and a little tart. Yum.
Today we are hanging out and waiting around for Wyatt. Love this cute burp cloth my sis got for me. Wyatt is already a gator. Maybe some shopping will help move things along. Hopefully my next post will be the big one!
Tuesday night, Jay and I realized that Wed night would be our last night solo. My mom is flying in tonight from Florida, and she will be here until Wyatt is born so we wanted to have a nice date night to celebrate the next chapter in our lives. I chose Bungalow 44, a restaurant in Mill Valley I’ve been wanting to try out for a while. I drooled over the menu before we finally chose an appetizer to start with, the Gnocchi with Gorgonzola and thyme. It was the lightest, fluffiest gnocchi I have had the pleasure of eating. I loved the seared texture and it had the perfect amount of Gorgonzola.
Jay and I, as usual, split a couple entrees. First up was the Sky Hill Goat Cheese Ravioli. I loved the little fried basil leaf on top, I wish they had a few more of those on there. It was a good dish, but didn’t blow me away. Maybe a different sauce would have complemented the ravioli better? Jay makes the best sauce so I’m spoiled.
Next up was the Pork Shoulder Chop. This was the best (and biggest) pork chop I’ve ever had! It was incredibly juicy and packed full of flavor. Jay is a huge steak guy, and said this was even better than steak. The beans and bacon tasted great as well, but I think some of the beans were a touch undercooked.
A pregnant woman always needs dessert! The server recommended the Sticky Toffee Cake with their vanilla ice cream. It was incredible. The warm cake had a heartier texture (probably because of the dates?) and had a wonderfully caramelized exterior. The ice cream and the butterscotch sauce was the perfect compliment. I could have eaten another one if it was put in front of me.
It was an amazing dinner! Bungalow 44 has great food and service, and I hope to go back! Next time I want to try their Kickin’ Fried Chicken. What’s your favorite part of a meal… appetizer, entree or dessert?
As you guys all probably know by now, I have had a serious craving for Mexican food for most of my pregnancy. We’ve tried a bunch of places, and finally have our favorite, Mi Pueblo Taqueria. The food is delicious and very well priced, plus they have a nice outdoor seating area, which is perfect for our beautiful spring days.
The servers always come around quickly with chips and salsa. The chips are warm and crispy, and the salsa is super fresh.
We ordered some Chile con Queso to start with. I needed to get my cheese fix! It was ooey gooey melted cheese topped with crumbled chorizo and jalapenos. It hit the spot.
With any of your tacos or burritos, you can pick your choice of meat. They have alot to choose from. The lengua scares me a little, but maybe I’ll be brave enough to try it one day (when I can have a couple margaritas beforehand, hehe).
We also split a California Burrito with carne asada, which has one unique thing that I’ve never had before in a burrito… French fries! Jay isn’t a big fan of rice and beans in his burritos, so we subbed in lettuce instead. I’m glad that we did, because then I would have been even more full. The only thing that I wanted to change was the guacamole, it was piled towards the end and wasn’t evenly spread out through the burrito. But overall it was surprisingly amazing. I see more French fry stuffed burritos in my future!
