WE FINALLY MADE IT!!!!
If you follow me on Twitter, you are probably aware that I had quite the fiasco in getting to California.
First, we got stuck in Denver overnight. Our flight was delayed in Minneapolis, which lead to a delay going to California. Since we were flying into John Wayne (which you can’t fly in past 11 p.m.) we got stuck :(. We ended up at the Hilton hotel, which, score, has free cookies. I definitely needed one after the long evening.
If that wasn’t enough… We woke up at 5:30 in order to get to the airport for our flight to Cali this morning. Our flight was on time, we boarded the plane, pushed back from the gate, all to figure out that one of the engine’s generators wasn’t working.
So, maintenance fixed the issue in about 30 minutes while everybody stayed on the plane. We pushed back again finally, only to find out that now the de-icing contraption wasn’t working! About another 30-40 minutes later, we FINALLY were on our way. What a fiasco. Made this girl tired/slight crabby. Lol.
Our fabulous lunch when we landed completely made up for all of the troubles we went through. Not to mention the fact that it is currently about 85 degrees and sunny. Aka, shorts and a tank top weather in my book!
We went to a restaurant called Roscoe’s, which my brother completely adores.
Oh.my.goodness. Why do we not have this type of restaurant in Minnesota?
Roscoe’s is a cute little ‘deli’ type restaurant, but once in which has the feel of a sit down restaurant. You go up and order your food from the counter; all of the sandwich options are written on chalk boards. Very ‘beachy’ feel in my mind.
I was craving veggies like no one’s business, so the Veggie Sandwich was a no brainer. From the menu:
Avocado,Cheddar,Provolone,Lettuce,Tomato, Onion,Pepperoncini and Mayo on Squaw.
**We also got to choose a side. I of course chose the fruit salad.
Potato Salad • Macaroni Salad • Coleslaw
Pasta • Fruit • Chili • Soup
Okay, you are going to have to pretend this is flipped in the right direction. No idea why these are flipping the wrong direction when I import.
First of all… these sammies are about the size of my head. Mike could only finish half of his sandwich it was that big. I managed to finish half of mine too. I challenge anybody to an eating contest, haha. When I am hungry, I can CHOW DOWN.
Second of all… this sandwich was heaven. You could tell all of the veggies were fresh and cut after I ordered my sandwich. And you know how much of a bread lover I am. This ‘squwa’ bread was so soft and delicious I had a big grin on my face the whole time I was eating. The bread had a honey type flavor to it.
Mike also thoroughly enjoyed his sandwich. He kept commenting the whole time about how much he loved his. He got the Hornet:
Hot Turkey,Genoa Salami,Pepper Jack Cheese,
Sweet Hot Mustard on Squaw
Ok, I am off to shower and get clean. We are going to a local tavern tonight to watch the baseball game and see my brothers college roommate who is in town. Maybe most importantly to have an ice-cold beer. Being it is vacation and all, not to mention our crazy journey to California, I need one!
