We’re back from our jaunt down the West Coast. Unfortunately I was too busy stuffing my face to take any photos of the food I ate – sometimes I just don’t have the willpower to take photos before digging in.

Food aside, the drive was gorgeous. We drove down the Pacific Coastal Highway which is full of twisty, winding roads on the edge of the ocean. There was lots to see: wild deer and elk, crashing waves, and cute homesteads with farm animals.

Some food highlights: pork shank adobo from Tasty n Sons in Portland, lemon shiso sorbet from Scream Sorbet in San Francisco, coddled eggs from Bouchon in Yountville, and the sardines from The Walrus and the Carpenter in Seattle.

It was a tasty trip but it’s good be home. Back to regular programming tomorrow!

    Will we at least see some trip photos?

  4. Sounds like a lot of fun. I love that Yountville gets top billing along with the three other much much bigger cities. My husband and I vacationed in San Francisco and Napa a year ago and really enjoyed Bouchon (and Oenotri, and The Girl and the Fig…). Great trip!
