All You Can Eat – California-style

One of the things I miss most about being away from home (after friends, family and all other familiar things) is the food. The food Minh and I have had in the UK isn’t even on the same level as the most basic of food that we can get in California. over the 3 weeks that I was home, I threw my healthy diet to the wind and ate pretty much whatever I wanted. And of course, took pictures of almost everything. Here’s a look of what Minh and I ate on my trip home… It’s not everything, but it’s most of it. There are over 100 pictures here.. so feel free to just skip over.

Here’s a list of the restaurants included in the pictures above:

So I’m not about to write a review for each of these places, that would take (metaphorically) FOREVER. But I did want to say something about my wedding cake. Minh and I finally got the wedding cake out of the freezer while we were home. It’s been frozen since our wedding, which was June 2012. Usually, the tradition is to freeze the top of the wedding cake and eat it at your first anniversary, but since we were out of the country for our first anniversary, it wasn’t possible. So we defrosted it and were expecting the worst. To our surprise, it was DELICIOUS! Just as good as it was on the day of our wedding. AMAZING! Big kudos to Colette’s Catering for an awesome wedding cake.
