Wow. Vacations sure do go by fast. After 10 days in beautiful sunny Los Angeles California, we are back in flooded humid Pittsburgh. But it’s okay, we’re ready to get back into the swing of things with the new school year approaching and, of course, we’re ready to get back to cooking!
Also, we had a surprise waiting for us when we got back to Pittsburgh – we have been nominated for Pittsburgh’s “Most Valuable Blogger” in Dining and Entertainment! Notice the shiny new badge on the right? Just give it a click, and vote for us on the page! It takes 1 second! Whoever nominated us, thank you for your support, we are so thrilled to be a contender with these other great blogs.
But anyway, our trip was amazing and filled with even more amazing food. We actually didn’t take that many pictures of our food because by the time we took out our camera, we had eaten all of it. Here are a few pics we did manage to capture:
We were so happy to finally eat a lot of authentic Mexican food from some awesome restaurants like Tito’s Tacos, Ortega 120, El Tarasco, El Indio and from Declan’s Mexican relatives who cooked a fantastic “farewell” dinner our last night in LA.
But we didn’t survive on Mexican food alone. We hit up Manhattan Beach’s famous The Kettle and the best fast food in America, In N Out Burger (hey we were on vacation we can eat some fast food, especially since it is all fresh!)
If you think we just ate the entire time in LA, you would be partially correct. We did spend some time hanging out at the beach and sight-seeing during our stay.
All in all we had a great time visiting Declan’s family out west and hope to see them again soon. But alas, all good things must come to an end. We hope you’ve had a good past two weeks and we look forward to sharing some more recipes with you this week!
