Just got finished walking with a friend by the beach. I love walking on a Sunday outside since I’m cooped up inside at work during the week. We  worked up an appetite and stumbled upon a small store front restaurant called Lilo’s. We ordered ‘The Ave’ – grilled chicken, hummus, cucumber and tomato on a whole-grain bun for $4 – can’t get better than that!!! One major downfall- when I got home to sink my teeth into it there was no grilled chicken, so I called and the man  told me to come back again another day for the real deal on the house.


come to mama 😉

Some other recent eats of the weekend involved a cross between an Italian thanksgiving and the Last Supper. 

Some of my family members and I had dinner at one of our close family friends’ home. They are Italian and always throw a fabulous spread. 

I decided to bring three humongous avocados that I had foraged last week that were finally ripe and ready to eat. Obviously, guacamole was called for. 


three huge avocados, three slicing tomatoes, two limes and one half sweet onion; sprinkle with salt and chili powder


if a priest blesses an avocado, is it considered holy guacamole? 😉

And then dinner was served. And boy was it served!


two pizzas, guacamole, London broil, salad, sautéed mushrooms and French bread. can’t. breathe.

Hope you have a fabulous Sunday Funday! 

Cheers! xxJ
