Our Very First Diner, Drive-In, and Dive!

Posted by PicasaWe watch the Food Network Channel a lot in our house. My daughter loves the Iron Chef and the other challenges. I LOVE Paula Dean and Guy. My Hubby LOVES anything having to do with FOOD :)

So we decided that we wanted to start visiting all the fun, yummy places that Guy visits. He goes all over the USA tasting great food at not so expensive places. We went to San Diego yesterday for a short visit to Sea World and decided to find a place Guy visited in San Diego. We found Hob Nob Hill about 5 miles away from Sea World.

When he visited he had the chicken and dumplings and leg of lamb. I wanted to try the chicken and dumplings but they had braised short ribs for a special and it was highly recommended. It was DELICIOUS! Steven had the chicken fried steak and it was not a favorite. It had no flavor and not enough gravy. The special came with a dessert and a soup or salad. I choose a garden salad which was nice. It was very small and the bowl was small so the salad was falling out of the bowl. It had lettuce, beets, onions, and croutons. The dinner was served with a starter of bread and muffins. The bread was dry but the peach muffins were WONDERFUL! I chose a coconut cream pie for dessert which was very tasty. The crust was more of a bread than a flaky pastry. The prices were a bit high and this was a diner 60 years ago, but now a nicer restaurant with chandeliers and fancy table settings. I was not sure I wanted to take children in there, but we did and it was a good visit.

Christmas Can

Is this stinkin cute or what? OMGOSH... I am in love with this one! I have been opening the bottom of pull-lid cans for over 2 years saving them for gift cards and little treats. This one uses the SU! Candy cane DSP, satin red ribbon, Christmas buttons, and sincere greetings stamp set. I just used regular glitter for the top and tag.  Just measure your can wrap it and decorate it. I am sure that these are going to bring a sure delight to whoever receives this gift. My dad is getting one filled with lottery tickets...shhhh!
Thanks for stamping by!
