Guest-Posting at The Cilantropist: Brioche for Busy Schedules

Howdy from Boston! I'm on the other side of the country to beat up some smah-t kids at Hahv.... ok, I couldn't resist. No, I'm not here to kick anyone's butt, but rather to see good friends and family in Boston, then migrate down to Philly for more friends and family, then head to Big Summer Potluck, and then to New Jersey to see more dear friends. I am so very stoked to be here to see people that once lived mere blocks or miles away, but now live on the other side of the continent.

Meanwhile, this post is for another good friend, one who is working hard back home in San Diego on her doctoral dissertation.

My Latest Addiction: Cucumber Dill Dip

When we were hanging out with my in-laws in Cayucos, I noticed that they kept a supply of a locally-made dill dip and bags of Wheat Thins Toasted Crisps. It was a very addictive snack, addictive to the point where I was sneaking bites for breakfast.

I don't have a problem. Really.

My Return, Cont'd: Yu Me Ya Hillcrest

The thing about being at home for two weeks is that I was dying to spend some time outdoors. Dan suggested a walk through San Diego Zoo in the evening, during their Nighttime Zoo hours. The zoo's only open in the evening during the summer and it's a wonderful walk.

We stayed until the zoo closed, then looked for a late dinner. After some debate, we settled on trying Yu Me Ya Sake House in Hillcrest. We had a lovely dinner and that was further evidenced by the fact that, a week later, Dan suggested we return. That's an endorsement if I've ever heard one, since he usually has to be cajoled into trying new restaurants and usually requires a couple of visits before he warms up to it enough to add it to the rotation.

My Return to Humanity: Doggie Beer Bones, the Mercato, and Another Giveaway

Bear, another customer of Doggie Beer Bones, and Flash, the Nermal to Bear's Garfield.

So... for the latter half of June, breathing was overrated.

At least, according to my body. Remember I mentioned catching Dan's cold?
