Hope you’re all having a lovely sunny time this Easter. Spoken to family back home on Skype and they say it’s been beautiful. Weather has been okay here but a bit cloudy. It rained last night so it’s a bit wet outside but it’s stopped now. Not sure what we’re going to do today. The plan was to hang out in a park and watch all the families playing and doing Easter egg hunts and stuff but I’m not sure if it will be too wet for that now. We’ll see.
Ok, so recap on the past few days. On Thursday morning we headed over to this tiny hole in the wall place called Little Skillet for breakfast. They sell chicken and waffles. Yes, that’s right. Fried chicken and syrupy waffles for breakfast. Only in America! So I ordered chicken and waffles so that my husband could try the chicken and I only wanted the waffle. He ordered a pulled pork sandwich. Weirdest breakfast ever. But my waffle was amazing and I might buy a waffle iron when I get home.
Apologies that this post is mostly (almost entirely) food related – not really taken any outfit photos as it’s been so cold that I’ve been bundled up in as many layers as possible!
Little Skillet is just around the corner from the AT&T park that the Giants play baseball at. They are playing all weekend here and they are the current champions of the World Series (I think), so it’s basically the equivalent of Manchester United in the UK. We had a look around the Giants store and I bought a really cool raglan t-shirt. We tried to get tickets to see them play but it was $60 each (£36) and you had to stand for 3 hours so we passed on that – and it rained yesterday while they were playing too so really glad we didn’t go for that.
Thursday evening we went to a food event called ‘Off the Grid‘ which is basically a collection of food trucks that all get together and there is beer and music and food trucks serving different foods from all around the world. The atmosphere was unbelievable. This is the view as we came over the hill.
I ate all sorts of food that night! Had chinese dumplings with chicken and pork from Happy Dumplings, filipino tacos with pork from Senor Sisig, chinese steamed bun with chicken from Chairman Bao, sweet potato tater-tots from Little Green Cyclo followed by the most amazing nutella and strawberry creme brulee from The Creme Brulee Cart. Can’t wait to go again next week! I might just have several lots of creme brulee for dinner!
On the walk home we came across a baseball park where lots of families were playing so we stopped and watched for a little while.
And just incase this post wasn’t sucking up enough of your bandwidth already, here’s a video from Off the Grid just so you can feel the atmosphere a bit better 🙂
