I spent 2 days in San Francisco, CA, attended a conference in San Jose, CA and then flew to my hometown (St. Louis, MO) for my Mom’s birthday. This week was healthy and not healthy…
Random scone and yogurt – free breakfast at the Green Tortoise Hostel in San Francisco
Dim Sum – since I was so close to Chinatown town I picked up some dim sum one morning.
Conference breakfast – they provided free breakfast only one morning. I had a lot of fruit, scrambled eggs and “roasted potatoes” (it lacked potatoes and was mushy, but still tasty).
Dinner/lunch leftovers and an apple – after the first day of the conference, this is what I ate each morning.
1/3 spinach and red pepper omelet, 1 slice turkey bacon, 2 small slices sourdough baguette and blueberries – the birthday breakfast I prepared for my Mom.
Ramen and karaage – I love when I can get more than sushi and teriyaki at a Japanese restaurant, I went a little crazy in California.
Berkley bowl from The Grove – I use to attend a conference in San Francisco every year while in graduate school and The Grove was my favorite stop. They have fresh and delicious fare.
Conference food – Free lunch just cannot be passes up.
Buddha buns and a Gose beer from Good Kharma artisan ales and cafe
Apple mojito juice and Luna salad from Vitamina
Corn dog and 1/2 chili fries from Woofies – my Mom’s birthday lunch of choice.
Random baked goods, an apple and ice cream – last night in San Francisco and I was really tired, so I ate a lot of random stuff.
Dosa and paneer pakoda from Chennai Kings Express
Free conference dinners – I did not get any shots of the conference party food, mainly because I was so anxious with how crowded it was and having to network while eating and drinking a beer.
Takoyaki, 1/2 a small order of gyudon and 1/2 a small order of curry don from Kumako Ramen – again, I just can not find Japanese food like this at home! Must eat all the good food!!!!!
California Veggie sandwich from Boudin at SFO, an apple and United pretzels
Pick 2 at Red Lobster (Shrimp scampi and cajun chicken alfredo)
Fruit – Apples and dates
Pretzel – more free conference food
1 slice of grandma cake and 2 scoops Ted Drewes frozen custard
