Mother's Day Note from my 4YO
"Top 10 Reasons Why I Love My Mom" from my 6YO
I can't get enough of these notes from my daughters. My oldest is always writing the sweetest notes. She reminds me of me when I was a kid. We tend to express ourselves better through notes.
Sunday morning I had a plan for the kind of Mother's Day I wanted. Dim Sum at Yank Sing, Hugh Jackman at the Curran Theatre, Scoma's for dinner... all of which would be with our little family.
Hubby surprised us all with his french toast recipe. We love Daddy's french toast.
Then we drove to San Francisco. It was truly, a gorgeous day.
Yank Sing... one of the best dim sum places in the city. We always go to the one at the Rincon Center (closest to Orpheum and Curran theatres)- horrible parking lot - but great food/service.
Dim Sum... always heavenly
Yank Sing is known for their perfect Shanghai Dumplings w/vinegar sauce.
Hugh Jackman is in San Francisco for two weeks performing his one man show. He was funny, personable and can that man sing... and dance.
The girls thoroughly enjoyed it as well. I love the theatre. I hope to take them more often as they get older.
Before we headed to Scoma's for dinner - we dropped by Books, Inc at the Marina... I'll post about that visit later this week.
The Marina - I love the Marina
Scoma's off of Pier 47 was a favorite place for my husband and I when we were dating. It was "our place" we frequented often for lunch, or dinner. We love that you can see the fresh seafood pulled in, prepared and then bam - hit the kitchens for our salivating mouths.
Great clam chowder. My daughters are aficionados of clam chowder and it was so cute when my 6YO tasted her first bite and said, "wow, this is really, really good clam chowder." I am so proud of her.
I ordered the seafood saute (lobster, crab, scallops, shrimp)... this plate can serve 3-4. I had some leftovers this morning. Yum!
The girls had fish and chips.
My hubby had the Pasta Diplomatica - but opted to go with all crab. Seriously, sooooooo good.
We love you Scoma's!
Good bye San Francisco... until we come again.
