Can you believe I have never been to P.F Changs - not a great fan of Chinese food, so never felt a craving to go there. Finally on Saturday we both thought to give it a try. Ordered some lettuce wraps, fried rice with ma po tofu.
Nah..I still think am - not a great of neither chinese food nor P F Changs. :-)
This pic was taken during one of our outings to San Francisco. One got to love this city with much happening almost every day. The first time, I visited - it reminded me of my days in Washington DC, except for the chilly breeze and huge sky scrappers.
It was our first trip to "The Rock" and that is when I took this pic from the boat. It is fascinating to know and to see how hard core prisoners were held in Alcatraz and their tales of escape (very few successful ones) are even more fascinating. If you are in the Bay Area, I highly recommend a trip to Alcatraz & if you have extra time on hand - to Angel Island.
"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."
Thank God it is a Saturday and this boring, busy week came to an end. Yeh!
Good, simple food gives me a lot of solace. and one of my favorite pasta recipes is without its classic tomato sauce(s) - cooked pasta tossed in extra-virgin-olive-oil, fresh herbs, garlic and salt. Top with grated parmesan cheese at the end. Yumm-o. :-)
I love this place so much. Since we have moved here back in September all we had - is lots of fun.
With Castro Street (the hussle-n-bussle reminds me of Badi Chowdi, back home) filled with noise, lights and good food every night at walkable distance, whats more to ask for. I have take out menus for almost every restaurant from Castro in my bag pocket and there were days where I would order food while I was on train, pick it up, stroll around for a while, come home and eat while watching my favourite shows reocrded on our DVR.
My days have become less excited from past couple of days as all I do is - go to work and come back home. I am not even cooking these days. :-( That reflects on my Bah pics with nothing much to say about for this Week 6, especially. I envy you and you so much ;-)...
Hope life would get to its normalcy, real soon.
P.S - Couple of more such pics coming up, pardon me for that.
It is Sunday again, that means a trip to my near by Farmer's Market is a must ;-) - to get some fresh fruits, bread and to see some happy faces around. This guy graciously gave a good pose when I was clicking with my camera. Guess, he thought I was a reporter or something & he wanted to be *famous*. Sorry dude. All I can do is feature you here on my Project 365 so that couple of my friends can check you out. :-)
No, I did have my BF but it was just a bunch of carrots and my favorite yogurt. It is a bit boring to take the same again so here I am with a photograph of a lonely flower in a lawn full of lush, green grass. This picture also signifies how lucky we West coasters are to be blessed with so much sunshine when rest of the country is blanketed with snow.
Hope everything would settle soon and my buddies on east coast would have some sunshine pretty soon.
P.S - I didn't place the red flower on the grass, it was a lone flower which sprung up from nowhere and thats what drew my attention. :-)
