Yesterday I spent an incredibly long day at UCSF with my dad and brothers. My dad had surgery to remove a tumor and it went well luckily. After a long drive home in traffic I was looking forward to a very low key evening.
My mom had mentioned going to a restaurant in town that was doing a fundraiser for the school she used to teach at. It’s called The General’s Daughter. I believe the daughter of General Vallejo used to live there so that’s why its named that. It’s an interesting set up they have going on now. The only place used inside (other then the kitchen) is the bar where you order your food. I think the menu had 5 or 6 items on it.
My mom and I are not big eaters so we ordered two plates of food to share. We had a delicious heirloom tomato and goat cheese salad. There were pickled zucchinis in it that I did not try but my mom seemed to like them. Grilled zucchini I can get behind but pickled? Uh, I’m good.
The pizza on the other hand was divine. The crust was so incredibly light and airy and definitely flavorful. It had a light char on the crust and I actually really like that taste for some reason. Maybe it was cooked in a brick oven, not sure but it was tasty!
My mom purchased what she called the “old lady version” of Sequence. I have always loved board games so she’s been wanting to play this with me for some time. It was actually really fun! I won the first round which went surprisingly fast and then she won the second. I was exhausted and figured it was good to end in a tie.
After that I went upside and read some more of Run Like a Mother by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea. I think I passed out at 9:30. Definitely the earliest I have been to bed in years. Of course its not hard to do when you wake up at 3:30am.
