I try not to be a creature of habit because (as the cliche goes) variety is the spice of life. Still, there’s something about consistency which makes things feel all nice, warm and fuzzy. On Wednesdays, I look forward in making a drive to Irvine for two reasons: 1) I get to eat a fantastic lunch as some of OC’s best gourmet trucks, and 2) I get to see my sister for all but 10-15 minutes.
Today, I decided to leave work a wee early and dine al fresco with my sister. Dining al fresco means hauling some folding chairs and a tv tray table out of my truck, and plopping it in front of a tree.
My lunch today was from Barcelona onthego, who was celebrating “Restaurant Week”. He was promoting a 3 course meal for $15. Sure it sounds a bit pricey, but look at the food! I ended up taking my dessert back to work because I had to have my treat from Oh For Sweets Sake!
