100 Happy Days: Bars

We visited several bars before we found one that suited us.
Homestead in San Francisco’s Mission.

It had a relaxed crowd. No cover charge and no band. I just wanted a watering hole where I could chat with my hubby.

Boom.

Bees Knees.

Feeding my soul with music.

I thought our impromptu piano concert at Heritage Wines in Lodi would work for this section.

Today – I loved this NPR segment on the science of pianos. I heard it on Science Friday as I drove down to Portola Valley for my lunch date with my hubby.

100 Happy Days: Slow Cooker

The slow cooker made my house smell like a taqueria in San Francisco’s Mission District. Chili and cumin aromas made it up to our bedroom.

An easy recipe for crockpot chicken with salsa surprised me.

I found it on a fitness-focused instagram page.

I made my own Mexican spice blend. I used a recipe from Barefoot in the Kitchen.

I also made Cuban black beans with tomatoes and corn. We wrapped everything up in wheat tortillas.

It tasted yummy.
It felt healthy.

100 Happy Days: Filipino Food

Filipino food reminds me of family. I loved it when Cate suggested Boracay Garden for lunch.

We ordered too much food. Also – I was impressed by these lunchtime portions.

Lechon Kawali – so meaty! Also liked the crispy pork skin.

Sinigang – so savory and sour!
image

Kare-Kare – so nutty!

Since Cate had the day off, we did cocktails and dessert at BJs.

100 Happy Days: Cooking

Cooking makes my kitchen smell amazing! I also like how it makes the kitchen the warmest spot in the house.

It was lovely to finish up my workout and watch my hubby take care of dinner.

Mark said the Barefoot Contessa’s bolognese recipe was easy to follow. I also liked the flavor combo of red wine, meat and tomatoes.

100 Happy Days: Conversation

Conversation over beer and cocktails at the Village Tavern in San Francisco’s Noe Valley.

Also – I laughed when I saw this sign by the Noe Valley Courts.

I’ve never been called Daisy’s “Guardian.”
If there was a town hall meeting on this sign, I would have loved to watch it.

100 Happy Days: Baller

I felt like a baller today at O2 Bodyfit Bootcamp.

I used a 15-pound medicine ball for my wall ball circuit. I dropped it once. On my face.
That knocked off my glasses.

But I kept going.

I made a hearty lentil and tomato soup for lunch. I used a recipe by David Rocco.
#kvpkitchen Lentil and Tomato Soup w/ @DavidRoccosVita recipe. #vegetarian lunch. Added red wine. YUMMY! #kvpinmybelly #foodspotting #soup #foodstagram
His Dolce Vita episode on simple Italian soups intrigued me. I liked how he crafted flavorful broths without chicken or beef stock.

For this soup, I added chicken apple sausage and red wine. It tasted so rich and hearty.
