I couldn’t help it
It’s not bad if its just one, right?

I’m addicted. Parmesan Garlic, Salt & Pepper, Sea Salt & Vinegar, and now this?
Jalapeno ?? They must’ve thought of me when they created this flavor. This is where all my money goes at work. One bag is $99. Never Fried. Never baked. And did I mention, 3 grams of fat per serving (one bag)? It makes me want to eat 10 bags! Haha. Hey! At least they’re healthy.

So… I felt like being vain before going to bed, and I decided to do a Google search on “cheese and donuts” to see if this here blog showed up. It did — yay — but even more exciting was the discovery of Tom+Chee‘s infamous grilled cheese donut. GRILLED. CHEESE. DONUT. I did not know such a thing existed.
I’ve been trying really hard to eat healthier lately, and I even started working out again tonight. Then I had to stumble on this gloriously awful thing right before bed. My stomach is growling angrily at me as I type this. I’ve never had any desire to go to Ohio, but suddenly, I want to go to Cincinnati to experience this grilled cheese donut myself. GAH.
A guy can dream, right? Sigh. Someday, Tom+Chee. Someday.
This guy and his cookies are amazing. Anthony is a sweetheart. These are THEE best cookies I’ve had in my 25 years of existence. Although there’s a variety of flavors, Cookies N’ Cream is my absolute favorite. Check out his website, eat his cookies, & give him 5 stars on Yelp!

This is the Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz, CA. I won’t spoil it and tell you the mystery behind it, but that’s because it remains a mystery. You just have to go there and see it for yourself. General admission is only $5.00. Our tour guide was a funny kid. I wish I could explain this spot more, but there’s no use. There’s no way to to do it. Fortunately, there’s one thing I can do–post pictures! So here it is, another photo reel of some of the pictures from this weird, and mysterious place. Dun dun dun…
This girl spoils me. While I’m at work, she makes time to buy groceries for my apartment and bring me lunch. All before leaving for her job interview. What a gal! Sigh.
I wish I took a picture of the glorious brie / prosciutto sandwich on Dutch crunch she made me, but I ate it way too fast during a team meeting. Luckily, I was able to snag a picture of her wearing her interview outfit. Posing next to my Prius, haha.
She know she cute.
This is the front office of a possible new job as I sat on the sofa awaiting an interview.
The interview went well. Maybe it was the first of many, or maybe it’ll be THEE one. Who knows? So we shall see what happens in the near future. I’m so excited!
After the interview I drove back towards Sunnyvale & made a stop at Palace Cafe and Catering and had one of these bad boys.

Later, The Gent and I went to explore his neighborhood for some good, healthy food. Eventually we ended up farther than we had intended. I’m really glad we did. We took El Camino Real all the way to Palo Alto and found ourselves at this little restaurant called Oren’s Hummus Shop. This place is a gem. Here’s a quick look at what we ordered:
Greek salad and all kinds of hummus goodness. Everything was so good. For dessert we had the flan. It wasn’t quite what we expected.
It’s called Malabi. Mediteranian flan topped with coconut, pistachio, and grenadin sauce. It almost looks like pistachio cereal with sugar, and wine instead of milk. Not so. Here is what it looked like after.
Shocking. I know. It didn’t really taste like flan, but it tasted better and better the more we ate it. We came to the conclusion that it could have done without the grenadin sauce. Maybe just a drizzle here and there would’ve done the trick. Overall, the food was so satisfying. It definitely hit the spot.
At the end of our meal, we received the check.
(Of course we actually got charged what was due, but their machines sometimes do this weird thing and it charges $0.04 on a separate receipt. Haha.) That would’ve been nice, though.
