Life is short..

I have always thought it would be fun to explore the city and find new places to go and hang out which basically means eat. Seattle is so full of fun little neighborhoods and each of these holds a plethera of establishments, some good & some not so good, but all open for exploration. I remember once when my friends, Kat & Juicy took me to a little neighborhood restaurant in Magnolia - it was so fun and really good Chicken Fried Steak (why did I capitalize that?).

So, my youngest sister also has this wanderlust and we decided that we would go and explore these city nooks each Saturday. Well, we had good intentions but we have yet to start. I was hoping for this Saturday - maybe go explore West Seattle - California Street. I think the only eating criteria is that we have not ever been there before (and it has to be reasonable, price wise). I'm excited for this adventure and hope that she & I make the time to be together and get out and explore.

Any recommendations from the blogesphere?

Greenwood, between 85th and Phinney has some great spots, coffee joints and greasy spoons.

It's been awhile since I commented!! It would be food that would bring me back, of course. Here are the places I miss a lot:

Kabul Afghan Cuisine-45th and Corliss

Bizarro (Italian)- in Wallingford I can't remember what street. It's close to 46th and Stone Way I think...

Both of these are a little pricey but so yummy and so worth it!!

The Burger Place-U-district (maybe you ate here when you worked at the U?) yummy burgers and fries and not too pricey!

Mark would love to do this, but I'm not very adventurous and we go out so infrequently that I'm always afraid if I don't love it, we will have wasted the money...I need to be more fun.

In West Seattle you HAVE to eat at Easy Street Records, and you HAVE to eat there for breakfast. It's to die for.

In Columbia City you should eat breakfast at Geraldine's Counter, and lunch or dinner at Tutta Bella.

About Me

I work at a Christian School district only 4 miles from my home. The people there are full of grace and love and I am glad to be a part of this ministry. I have a neice and nephew whom I love dearly. They are 12 and almost 15 respectively. I have two amazing sisters and two amazing brothers-in-law. Of course, I would not be here if it were not for my mother agreeing to marry my dad. Good going mom! My parents are my life and I would literally be NOTHING without their unconditional love, support and care. You rock mom and dad. Then there's Will & Lora...their giggles are like sunshine and their parents crack me up too.
