Sautéed oyster and crimini mushrooms with caramelized onions and homemade tomato sauce. $10.25 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco CA
You really can’t go wrong with sauteed mushrooms and caramelized onions – this was delicious! I will say that there may have been too many toppings for the thin crust to handle (gasp, did I just say that?).
Sidewalk graffiti, Market Street. I usually see the spray painted coi fish stencils on the sidewalk, but this one was new to me!
Rotisserie chicken, pesto sauce, roasted red peppers and sliced red onions. $10.95 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco CA
This pizza was ok. I usually wouldn’t say this, but I think it had too many toppings and pesto. The crust seemed weighted down by everything. I prefer some of their other pizza options.
July 3, 2015. $12.95
This was at SFO and it wasn’t as good. The crust was thicker and a little burnt. Not my favorite.
Pinot noir, red wine. $6.95
View from Dolores Park. From the corner of Church and 20th Streets, you can get a spectacular view of the city. Mission Dolores High School is to the left and the newly remodeled playground is to the right. On a warm, sunny day Dolores Park gets packed with hipsters and sunbathers!
Romaine lettuce, parmesan cheese and fresh garlic croutons tossed with homemade caesar dressing. Additional fixings include caramelized onions, candied walnuts, and bleu cheese. $12.20 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco CA
For some reason, I sometimes crave the caesar salad at Firewood. I always add roasted chicken on top and take full advantage of the 3 free additional toppings. “Lite on the dressing”, of course!
Marinated olives. Complimentary.
Tangle of telephone wires over 17th Street at dawn. Mornings in San Francisco can create the best colors. This subdued purple was absolutely beautiful.
Generous portion of battered and deep fried fish fillets, served with crispy French fries. $12.95 Firewood Cafe, San Francisco (SFO)
Wow, I was really surprised how many pieces of fish there was in this basket. There must have been at least six fillets in there! And the French fries were straight out of the fryer hot and perfectly crispy.
I felt really tired this morning, so it was a nice surprise to arrive at work and find out that I’ll be in a training class for the next three days. It’s a nice break from the usually daily grind. I leave for Ohio on Friday so I’m looking forward to that. I just have to keep thinking to myself, “Just 3 more work days after today!”
I’m totally feeling like a gigantic fatty after this weekend. And I didn’t go to the gym this evening because I had to run some clothes to the dry cleaners, and also do some laundry at home. I’m gonna have to work really hard at the gym the next few days.
Penne pasta with a meat sauce of mild Italian sausage, ground beef, tomatoes, basil, fresh garlic, and grated parmesan cheese. Served with bread. $11.25 Firewood Cafe, SFO San Francisco
This was pretty standard, but it totally hit the spot. I was craving carbs for lunch and the meat sauce was nice and hearty. The portion was also generous and I ended up taking half of it to-go.
