I think one disadvantage of having a sister who cooks well is that we totally get spoiled by it. We hardly worry about cooked food on the table. This week she's in NY, so we are on our own.
So what do we do on our first day without her? Of course, eat OUT.
We went to the Ferry building in the city. I've been meaning to have hubby taste the food in this one place where they serve good seared ahi burger. The Ferry building also went through a big transformation, it's now a favorite spot for the city folks. Today (Saturday), they also have a farmer's market just outside the building. In the inside are a number of interesting shops. Parking was a hassle, as is always the case in the city. We meter parked for an hour so we had to breeze through one end to the other end of the building. Next time, we'll try to get there earlier and enjoy a good long lunch in one of the tables outside.
I didn't bring my good old camera, so these are phone pictures--unfortunately, it's not as vivid as I want it to be.

Feeling so starved at 2 pm, the sign didn't help us feel any better while we waited for our food.
Obviously if we keep up with this kind of lifestyle we'll be broke even before sis comes back from her trip. As much as I hate cooking, I'd have to deal with it this week. We'll probably survive with leftovers.
Oh by the way, this has been one (and only) relaxing day. I feel that it's finally the first since we left for our hawaiian trip. Tomorrow will mark the start of the usual crazy and busy week ahead. When sis comes back on Friday, she's bringing along an aunt (who I have not seen for ages -- 17 long years!!) who is visiting from the Phils. I'll once again be the designated sightseeing guide for this part of the country.
You'll get a whiff of what I've got planned for her in my coming entries--stay tuned....
