This weekend consisted of lots of eating. I’m definitely ready to start the paleo challenge tomorrow. I feel like my body needs a cleanse.
Friday night, as I had mentioned, I went to Newport Landing for OC Restaurant Week.
I had Manhattan Clam Chowder, Potato Wrapped Salmon, and Molten Chocolate Cake. Tasty!
Then Saturday night, there was another birthday dinner at an Argentine restaurant in San Diego called Puerto La Boca. Jesse and I headed down to San Diego a bit early. We sat at the bar and had a drink ($3 wine!) while we waited for everyone to arrive.
By the time dinner happened (about 9pm?), we were starving. Empanadas, Bread with Chimichurri, Meat, Salad, French Fries. All tasty (and garlic-y like woah).
Then today, a co-worker is having an engagement party. I offered to bring pies.
He requested Avocado Pie (because he loved it last time)
A Banana Cream Pie using this recipe from Epicurious.
And Chocolate Mousse (I’m totally NOT happy with how this one looks. Womp. But hopefully it will taste awesome!)
This is by no means a normal weekend, so I definitely feel ready to eat normal food.
How about you? Ready for the Paleo Challenge?
I’m totally pumped! I keep talking about it. I think my boyfriend is already annoyed.
Pretty soon I’ll turn into one of those people…

Your avacodo pie looks very good! I love all things avacodo but have never seen it in pie form! Can’t wait for a reason to try it!
Definitely! Give it a try. It’s been a hit at every gathering I’ve taken it to!
Good luck with your paleo challenge! I don’t think I could ever do it. 😛
You totally could! It’s a question of wanting to 🙂
