More Eating (SF Part 4)

Thanks for coming back for Part 4 of our SF trip! This will be the last post…I promise 🙂 Grab some tea and lets get started!

After Alcatraz we took the ferry back and I was ready for some food! We went to Boudin which is famous for their sourdough bread.

They make all kinds of fun shaped sourdough bread, but we went for a turkey and havarti sandwich on sourdough (duh!) and tomato soup in a sourdough bread bowl.

The sandwich tasted SO delicious to me, but the hubs said it may have been because I was SO hungry. I loved the soup too, but I don’t think I am a bread bowl gal which seems crazy since I LOVE bread.

We walked some more after lunch to find dessert and we hit up not one, but two spots!

The first being Trish’s Mini Donuts who has these mini donuts sprinkled with sugar-they were hot and fresh and yummy!

The second was a cookie dough place called Doughp. We had been wanting to try out a cookie dough place and now seemed like the perfect time since it was in walking distance. We got the PB cookie dough and put sprinkles and PB sauce on it.

It was also really good! If you love cookie dough then check it out!!

We kept walking and stumbled into these guys…

After this we perused some of the stores on the Pier and then kept walking. We went to find other touristy things to do and ended up walking up a very steep hill to get to one particular tourist destination.

Lombard Street!

I know this isn’t the best pic of it, but it’s this cool super curvy street that also happens to be really beautiful.

You guys, we were plain worn out after all this walking. We walked back to our cars and decided to go to a comedy show so we could finally just chill!

Since we had some time to kill we did the rest of our sight seeing in the comfort of our car until it was showtime. I really enjoyed the comedy show and it was a really good break for our tired legs!

Dinner ended up being late and I had been feeling kind of sick so we went for ramen at Marufuku. We ended up getting takoyaki for our app and two bowls of chicken ramen.

The hubs and I got the same thing, but he got the fancier version with a whole piece of chicken on the side!

I don’t know if you can guess what we had after dinner? If you guessed Fenton’s you would be so right. I got the same blueberry cheesecake flavor that I fell in love with that first night.

We went back to our AirBNB and crashed so hard that night!

We had so much fun in SF and I hope you guys get to visit if you haven’t had the chance! Let me know if you have been to any of these places and what you thought or if there are any places we missed that we should check out or our next trip.

See you Friday!

Goodness of Sourdough Bread

I LOVE bread and it’s not a secret. It is a very rare that I meet a bread I don’t like, but with that being said when I’m picking up a bread for home I am pretty picky. I used to be a huge buyer of whole grain bread, but I think I just got tired of it so I stopped buying it.

Once we moved to California I started buying more sourdough and at first it was solely for taste reasons, but I soon realized it’s so much more than just delicious.

There are a few reasons why sourdough is my bread of choice (all the time, but especially at home):

  1. It has a great shelf life. The hubs doesn’t eat bread…he doesn’t love it the way I do so buying a loaf of bread for one person didn’t make sense. It would go bad before I could finish it OR it would have a nice long list of ingredients to preserve the bread and make it last longer than the fries at McDonald’s. Neither of those were good options for me. I hate wasting food and I love whole food. Sourdough lasts what seems like forever and true sourdough has few ingredients.
  2. Short ingredient list-if you’re looking for a true sourdough it should just be flour, starter, water, and salt
  3. It’s great for your gut-I’m a believer that when it comes to your gut that every little bit helps and if I can get some Lactobacillus from my bread…why not?? I know I don’t always feel like eating yogurt or drinking kefir and those days a nice warm slice of sourdough is so inviting!
  4. No blood sugar spike! We know that carbs can spike up our blood sugar and leave us hungry (hangry, in my case) a few hours later. Not true with sourdough-it keeps it pretty steady.
  5. Taste 🙂 I told you already that this is what drew me in, but that’s what keeps me here as well. You can tell me that it’s a miracle bread, but I probably wouldn’t eat it if it tasted bad. I love the tangy, savory flavor! It’s my favorite!
