Last month I posted a Travel + Food summary and I figured this month I could do the same! I’ve been MIA for a little bit with last-sem-of-school stuff hanging over me and enjoying my last Spring Break (possiblyever!). Because of all that, I haven’t really had a chance to cook… I’ve been eating all this yummy food instead!

(TL-BR): Melting Hot Chocolate Souffle (Roy’s Restaurant in Plano, TX,) Seared Ahi Tuna Wrap (Jake’s in Palm Springs, CA), Wimbeldon French Toast (Scape in St. Louis, MO), Toro Sushi (Haru Sushi & Roll Cafe in Los Angeles, CA)

Spring Break was split btwn plane rides, road trips, and hanging out!

(L-R): Eek traffic!, Enjoying the Palm Springs sun, and LA coastline from the plane!

This was my first time in Palm Springs and besides realizing that I should’ve taken the desert sun more seriously, twas a blast!

Hanging out at The Parker Palm Springs!

Anywhoo, off to spend some high qual fam+friends time and eating homecooked food!

Eeek! I just realized it’s been a while since I’ve written in here. Partly because I’ve been busy (crazy last sem, getting in the way of my blogging!!) and mostly because I haven’t had a chance to really cook anything. Instead, I’ve been eating this fun stuff for the past few weeks:

TL-BR: Steak Eggs Benedict (Whiskey Cake in Plano, TX), Red Velvet Pancake (Griddle Cafe in Los Angeles, CA), Braised Short Rib Sloppy Joe (PlushSTL in St. Louis, MO), and B Baby’s Beignets (Founding Farmers in Washington, D.C.)

For me, half the fun of traveling is trying out the local foodie scene. But all the time on plane and at airports is terrible for my diet.

L-R: Breakfast on early morn LAX-STL flight, Red Mango at DFW airport, and Pirate’s Booty snack on flight to DCA

But now I’m back and am on the quest to go through my bookmarks and find what my next culinary adventure will be — tune in!
