Mike & I have heard a lot of good things about downtown Campbell and finally got a chance to check it out.
Now I see why, It has a lot of charm & character.
We wondered around for a bit and decided to have lunch at Sonoma Chicken Coop.
I had a fresh fruit salad with grilled chili lime chicken. We both agreed this place rocks!
After we did a little window shopping and popped into Starbucks for our fix. I have a special talent to find a Starbucks every place we go. I mean there’s one on every corner here, but still…
Then this happened.
I was on the hunt for a pink tank for the race, but the only shade they had was too light. I want to be loud & obnoxious, dang it! But I did find a this Run Pacesetter skirt.
I’m pretty much in love with it.
There has got to be some kind of Lulu support group Mike can send me to, right. Right?
Then we headed over to Mike & Cristin’s to hang out and enjoy a few appetizers. I’m pretty sure they lowered their standards a little bit because they invited us.
Isn’t she adorable!?
Can’t forget this cute little face. I might have to dog nap Bruce.
I remember reading Cristin’s Eat Like Me blog and thought it would be so cool to sit at her table. Everything she wrote about looked amazing and healthy. So when she invited us over, I felt honored.
There was so much good food, let’s start with the bean dip she made & served with Pita chips.
Meatballs. I really need to get the recipe for these, they were amazing.
And just when I thought she was done, she busted out a cold pesto pasta salad with cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Appetizers schmappatizers, this is a whole meal and then some.
Fresh fruit salad with strawberries, blueberries, pineapple & grapes. There may have been another kind in there, but I can’t remember. Everything tasted like they were in season. It was perfect!
Beet & goat cheese salad. I swear this girl know how to feed a crew, I tell ya!
And then she brought out cupcakes!! There’s always room for cupcakes, especially these. I think there was some type of liquor in the frosting that totally made it. She also made Blondie’s and Irish Soda bread, which everyone raved about, especially the Kerry Gold butter. I hear it’s top of the line. Guess I’ll have to try it.
What an honor it was to be sitting at her table. She texted me the next day congratulating me on a great race, saying “it must have been all that good fuel.” I have to agree.
I really need to take a few lessons from Cristin because she is an amazing chef and host. If you leave her house hungry, you have major problems.
If you could sit at anyone’s table, who would it be?
What is your favorite party dish?
Running skirts: yay or nay?
