There were two things on Opal's list of "to-do's" before her little bro comes...San Francisco & Disneyland. We checked SF of the list last week (and had a blast in the process)! We rode the ferry, ate yummy treats at the Ferry Building, walked over the Golden Gate bridge, visited the Disney Museum, had dinner at our favorite spot, Tacolicious, ate breakfast at our other favorite spot, Squat & Gobble, rode "100 cabs" (as Opal says), stayed in a funky, semi-spooky B&B, did some antique shopping and drank lots of delicious coffee (& we were only there for 2 days!).
Whenever we visit SF we always return to the quaint little Valley we live in, full of culinary inspiration. We reached our offering of 400 cupcake flavors last week with these SF inspired treats ~
Strawberry Jalapeño Chardonnay...Chardonnay cake, filled with strawberry jalapeno "goo", topped with strawberry frosting & more "goo". This flavor was inspired by one of the house-made jams at Squat & Gobble.
Mexican Chocolate Glazed Pecan...chocolate cake, filled with toffee sauce, topped with Mexican chocolate glaze, candied pecans and cinnamon toffee glaze. This flavor was inspired by an amazing piece of Mexican chocolate pecan pie we shared at the Green Chili Kitchen
In close, here's one of my favorite pics from our big city adventure (we basically walked from Sausalito back to SF and Opal's little legs got a bit tired)!
