When you get back from Italy, everyone asks, especially a food enthusiast, "What was your favorite thing you ate?" My answer, the puntarelle. It was so different. Like nothing I've had at home. I was calling it the bitter Caesar. The dressing was like a Caesar dressing but saltier. There wasn't the egg yolk to sooth it, and the puntarelle itself bitter.
There is a lot to do and see and everyone that has been there has an idea of what you should do and see. We took suggestions but we also discovered things on our own.

October was basically a blink of an eye. I didn't spend Halloween in Long Beach this year and I also gave up candy for a whole month. I caved two times. I'm pretty proud of myself. I think I will try to continue now that I am back. I do miss my Scandinavian Swimmers from Trader Joes. I'm pretty excited to move forward to November! #THANXGVNG My favorite holiday!
Anyways, here is October. I you watch closely, there is a Italy sneak peak!

Oh hello! It is that time again for This Week in SnackChat. I have a new bunch of snacks and not so snacks to feed your FOMO or in this case, FOMOOF, or to answer your question, yes, everyone is eating with you.
Best fries in Long Beach. If someone wants to sponsor me I can get a trophy made for the Pike.
But was it broiled?!?
I don't see the beans.
Same. But I think my luck is about to change
Small side of salsa with eggs benedict? I think that is a first.
I love Solvang so much.
Reese's stuffed with the Pieces is the best thing to ever happen! While other candies will try to spice things up by changing the chocolate Reese's is like nah. We'll just add an even better candy to an already awesome candy and I think we'll be fine.
Can we all hang out with Tia Trini!
Legit looking bagel sandwich.
I can't see the sandwich. Is it a Magic Eye?

Fall is in the air! But I am guarding all the fall feels as this is Southern California and it will probably be 95 degrees next week but for now will take what I can get. With fall comes hockey, pumpkins, sweaters, blah blah blah. But being season ticket holders for the Kings and there being a preseason game, we took the opportunity of being in LA to 1. get some Leos and 2. get some ice cream sandwiches.
If you a reader of this blog, you might remember from 2014 (!) we made this same adventure. It has been quite some time since we've been here and not much as changed. Leo's updated the graphics on their trucks and Coolhaus got a nice paint job. But other than than the aesthetics, the food is just as good as I remember, if not better.
At Leo's we got the al pastor and at Coolhaus, we shared a Fruity Pebble krispy treat with a milkshake and fries ice cream. Strange, I know, but it was better than I could have ever imagined. Also, I feel like my childhood was robbed because nobody made me Fruity Pebbles Krispy Treats. They are damn tasty. The al pastor wasn't fresh from the spinning cone of meat like last time, but it still good and I could have eaten 5 more.
