California-Vacation Day 2

Yesterday was another great day. We drove down to San Francisco and checked out some touristy areas. We didn’t get to go to the golden gate bridge, but we saw it from afar. We also got to check out Alcatraz from afar. To be honest..I didn’t even want to get on the boat and venture there! Though I’m sure it would have been an experience. Next time…maybe.

We checked out some local restaurants and other spots too. I personally enjoyed our dinner spot, which was a Mongolian grill restaurant. I’ve never had Mongolian grill before, but it was pretty cool. You pick your own meats, veggies, and noodles. You put your raw, frozen, very thinly sliced meat in one bowl and your veggies and noodles in another. You also have your choice of various sauces that you can put in either or both bowls. After that, you give the bowls to two guys who are manning a huge flat grill. They cook everything for your and then put on a plate for you. Delicious. Dessert was self serve vanilla ice cream and an ice cream cone. Hey- why mess with what definitely works? A quick chat with this Mongolian grill spot had been in business for 40 years. Awesome. Wish I remembered the name of the restaurant..

For lunch, we went to Mel’s drive in diner. We didn’t drive in we sat inside lol. I got a half rotisserie chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy as well as a side of veggies. All delicious. I ever going to need to hit the gym when I get back!
Mission for today-hit up the local outlet malls and get me a Michael Kors bag and watch. Wish me luck
