This past week

Was away from the blog for a week.  We worked at the USOpen at Pebble Beach in the Merchandise Pavillion.  My sister in law works for Monterey Unified School District so the USGA gives back to the school some proceeds and employees and family members and friends were able to work. We also were able to enjoy the Open duing off hours.

Above are the only photos we were allowed to take during training at the Merchandise Pavillion and my Volunteer Pin. 

We had dinner in Carmel Wednesday night with my eldest sister in law and her husband as they stopped by overnight from San Diego then headed back to the valley and home to Virginia Beach.  We ate at Mundaka
Spanish Tapas.  I was impressed with the food, not necessarily the interior but the tapas were deliciouso!!!
Our favorite were the White Sardines in Olive Oil and Toasted Garlic, Hanger Steak with Foie Gras Browned Butter, Chick Pea/Polenta Cake and Snap Peas, Duck Confit Prosciutto with candied olives,
Paella with Clams, Calamari and Chorize, we also had Sea Bass Paillard and the Deep Fried Squash Blossoms with a Verbena Caramel Sauce was so tasty.  Dessert we had Spanish Flan with a Orange Ginger Cardomom Sauce with candied grapes. 

The above sandwich was a Lobster Sandwish I shared with hubby from Phil's Fish Market in Moss Landing. We dine there alot when we drive through Highway 1.  They make the best Cioppino and this Lobster Sandwich was perfectly seasoned.
