This past weekemd was rather hectic. For the past few weeks I have been frantically preparing for a licensing examination that required me to unearth knowledge I had lost eons ago – a plethora of arcane engineering knowledge that had gone the way of so many things not used – nearly lost forever. Well having sat through two days of grueling examinations I am much relieved to reclaim my ‘normal’ life, a large factor of which is… cooking or at least thinking of cooking. Still all the household chores left undone were crying out for attention and then I came down with a ghastly cold. We made a trip to Temecula which, as all excursions these days, included a meal with sandwiches. Since this is not our recipe, we can’t speak much about the preparation.
For Anders’ birthday, we went to lunch at the Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill in San Diego. It was our first time here, so we decided to start with some of the most expensive sandwiches on the menu. The Seared Ahi Tuna with Chipotle seasoning on a toasted sandwich, and the soft shell crap sandwich with lemon butter seasoning. Both were “served on soft boleo roll with lettuce, tomato, red onion and tartar. Toasted upon request.” We also opted in for the optional Avocado. While we did ask for them to be toasted that never happened but we decided to dig in anyway. No reason to send back perfectly good sandwiches after all.
