Laguna Beach Eats.
I’ve learned that if a baked good is vegan that pretty much guarantees it’s gonna be super moist. I imagine because it doesn’t have eggs to help it set.
Zinc’s vanilla latte was also super delicious and I enjoyed a few on the trip. The coffee cake was slightly spiced with something. I’m not sure what…maybe cardamom? Or clove? Not sure but there was only a hint of it, which was perfect and not overpowering!
One morning I had the above for breakfast alone. Another morning I had the above and then some of my dad’s breakfast tacos back at our timeshare. Soft scrambled eggs + crisp bacon + cheese + flour tortilla…perrrrfect.
Or a coffee cake appetizer followed up with a delicious quiche Quinn + Derek whipped us up. Jojo was unsure about it lol…
One morning we walked down to our favorite hole-in-the-wall bakery to find this on the door…
That has to be so sad for a baker to not be able to bake!
Lunches were usually just leftovers at the timeshare, simple sandwiches, or tacos/burrito-type bowls.
The below taco was a tofu taco topped with a citrus slaw (SO GOOD.) and aioli. Eaten with a nice pile of chips + guac.
One of the best sandwiches was sourdough bread + a rosemary asiago + turkey + spread of spinach-artichoke dip. So good.
One day for a snack Andrew and I split an Acai Bowl.
Most of our dinners were eaten back at the timeshare.
salmon + bread with butter + sautéed snap peas + wine.
salad + white wine (not sweet. I hate sweet white wine. Tastes like fermented apple juice to me. Ew.) + my dad’s homemade clam chowder.
steak + broccoli + twice-baked potatoes.
blue cheese burgers.
Some nights I’d have dessert before dinner so I didn’t miss out. After dinner was always hectic with getting Jo to sleep, so pre-dinner desserts included coffee ice cream and Joe-joes. See what I did there… :)
